Galway Massage Therapy

“I discovered Shiatsu with Tissy. What a relief felt at each session! What I like with Tissy it’s the heart she puts into practice. You feel, pleasantly and strongly, the effects during the time she spends with you. She is present, listening and you leave with a smile as the wellbeing felt that the attention you received as valuable human beings. To test absolutely!” Céline

I offer Antenatal Massage from as early as the first trimester, throughout the pregnancy and postnatally. I trained and qualified with Suzanne Yates of Well Mother UK, who specialises her work in “Supporting the Wellness of Parents & Babies”.  As well as my training with Suzanne, I took up a 4 years Shiatsu training, as well as a Doula Training, which make my approach and preparation  to childbirth very unique.

This treatment is given on a futon – Japanese Mattress on the floor – thus creating a safe and comfortable environment for the mother to be.  I use a combination of Shiatsu and Swedish massage and offer after care and birth preparation advices…

From 37 weeks pregnancy, I use acupressure to prepare the body for the birth…
