While working, she was training in Holistic Therapies on a part time basis before making the decision to open her own business in the area. This year she has been training in Reflexology while hoping to add this treatment, by the end of the year. She always had an interest in Holistic Therapies and would have had many treatments herself over the years, in a variety of therapies, sometimes in addition to medical care to try and improve overall health and wellbeing. From this, an interest in learning more about the therapies began, particularly massage as “it is one of her personal favourites as a treatment, as you can treat the whole body and it has so many benefits to your overall wellbeing” described Majella. “I feel Ballinasloe, has a huge catchment area for clients, with easy accessibility and has a great presence of holistic therapists, who offer a wide variety of different therapies, in the town and surrounding areas. This highlights the growing interest in holistic therapies to complement other medical treatments in certain cases or just in general to keep the body in balance and create an overall sense of health and wellbeing”.
Each treatment is 50-60 minutes in duration and costs €50. A Full Body Massage treatment is €75 for 1hr 30mins. Ear Candling without Lymphatic Drainage Facial Massage is also available at reduced rate of €30 for 30min treatment.
“For my treatments, I use mainly unfragranced, natural oil sourced from Ishka and natural oils and balms from Irish companies Flying Wild – Arno creates wonderful blends from natural ingredients which feel wonderful on the skin, with some scented with essential oils”, expalined Majella.
Treatments are suitable for most, as each treatment is tailored in order to provide the safest and most effective treatment, where suitable. The full body massage is a relaxing treatment which helps with muscle tension, pain and discomfort. Ear Candling is suitable for most, but has specific restrictions. Very relaxing treatment, suitable for helping with symptoms of tinnitus, sinus issues, earaches, headaches, snoring to name a few, does not claim to cure but may ease symptoms of the above. Her therapy room is located at Ballinasloe Enterprise Centre, Creagh. The therapy room is located around the back of the building with loads of parking spaces at the front. She deals with appointments only and is open from Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 7.30pm. To book an appointment with Majella, call her on 089 4406930 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
