Benefits of each Treatment: NB. Your first appointment includes a thorough health consultation to ensure all treatments cater for your specific needs.
Heal & Relax (Swedish) massage:
Bliss for the body, let the stress and tension melt away – Often called Swedish massage, through the ancient remedy of human touch with nourishing oils, this nurturing massage brings deep relaxation, soothes the body & mind but also relieves areas of muscle tension and poor flexibility. Great for treating stress, anxiety, poor circulation, insomnia, aches & pains, high blood pressure or just for relaxation. Also softens and tones the skin.
Indian Head Massage:
Intensely relaxing, let the body and mind unwind – An Ayurvedic massage technique focussing on the back, shoulders, neck, head & face. Targeting the entire central nervous system it is deeply relaxing and leaves you feeling energized and refreshed. Great for treating headaches, migraines, stress, anxiety, insomnia, sinusitis, tinnitus and fatigue. Plus muscle tension in the shoulders, neck and face.
Deep Tissue / Sports Massage:
Therapeutic, Restorative, Preventative – More invigorating, targets areas of tension or those in recovery following injury. Reduces muscle pain & fatigue, drains lactic acid, improves flexibility & tone. Allows muscles to warm up, heal and recover from the demands of daily life or sports activities. Can be preventative pre-sports / events. Also for specific musculoskeletal & soft-tissue injuries, aiding rehabilitation. Uses special neuro-muscular techniques, advanced stretching and deep-tissue massage to allow the body to return to optimum levels.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage:
Soothing, Safe & Supportive during ANY stage of cancer treatment – Touch Therapy Massage for cancer care (also known as Oncology Massage) is a unique form of massage designed to sooth the side-effects of your cancer treatment – NOT the cancer itself – in a peaceful and non-medical environment, where you can feel like a person not a patient. It is suitable for ANY stage of your cancer journey – diagnosis, examinations and tests, surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy as well as post-treatment recovery. Can aid relaxation and sleep, reduce anxiety, ease the likelihood of nausea, and can stimulate antioxidant activity. Please get in touch to discuss your needs and any questions you may have or visit my website www.EmbodyHarmony.com
Body balance, health boost & energy flow– An ancient therapy gently working on “reflexes” – pressure points on the feet – that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Extremely relaxing and good for treating a wide range of conditions such as aches and pains, poor digestion, IBS, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and stress. Can improve sleep patterns, energy levels and general health. Specific conditions shown below can also respond very well to Reflexology:
Reflexology for Fertility – for both men and women:
Balances, stimulates and kick-starts many systems in the body including those relating to the reproductive organs and the endocrine (hormonal) glands, promoting greater health, balance and energy in these areas. It can potentially help couples who have been unable to conceive during this complex and emotional process, and it’s well documented that sub-fertility levels are affecting both men and women in equal number.
Reflexology for cancer care:
A safe, soothing and supportive treatment that can help you feel like a person rather than a patient before, during and post-treatment. It can ease the side-effects from your cancer treatment and in addition to the many benefits already listed above it can aid relaxation and sleep, reducing anxiety, eases the likelihood of nausea, vomiting or digestive issues and can stimulate antioxidant activity.

Nowadays, I’m a fully qualified Holistic Therapist and Tai Chi & Meditation Instructor (ITEC, FETAC, Irish Mindfulness Institute, Master Jason Chan) and – based on my personal journey towards empowering my own health and happiness – I’m a passionate believer in the profoundly positive and healing effects of human touch and the power of a peaceful, present mind. I’m so glad to be able to share some wonderful, healing treatments and practices with you at The Natural Clinic and at my classes, workshops and retreats!
But if you turn the clock back around 10 years – to when I was a high-flying but extremely hectic and stressed-out Fashion Buyer based in London – I realised that my health – physical, psychological and spiritual – was suffering as a result….. I discovered that the journey towards self-care and kindness starts with ME and set out to make conscious and positive changes. Consequently, I discovered the healing, energising and life-affirming effects of human touch through Massage and Reflexology. And the benefits of the mindful arts of Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Meditation.
I have since given up my stressful Fashion career and retrained as a Holistic Therapist and Instructor. I am also very proud to have worked with Cork Cancer Support Centre (formerly The Girls Club Cork) – an inspiring cancer support charity – and offer specific treatments to help those going through the journey of cancer. And just for fun…..I enjoy walks by the sea, live music, travelling, taking part in an improvised theatre group and cooking curry and apple crumble for my friends!!!
I’d love to hear from you – please get in touch to discuss how we can make YOUR health your wealth! Michelle x
