An interview with our Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner – Irene

January 20, 2020

What made you decide to be a Massage Therapist and Reiki practitioner?

It was an overwhelming feeling that the earth and its people need to be healed one by one.


For those not familiar with Massage Therapy and Reiki can you describe what it is you do?

I co facilitate with you to help your body heal how it needs to, whether by Massage or Reiki.

I do Massage Therapy which will focus more on a presenting physical pain or injury. I can also do Pregnancy massage to help alleviate and relax the body as it creates the space for the new life.

Holistic massage incorporates Reiki energy, but it is still a massage.

Reiki is a non-invasive treatment that involves harnessing your bodies own energy and using it to help heal yourself.

With Holistic Massage and Reiki, I ask that you create an intention of what you wish to move towards for your self for this is also reflected in your body. Your intention then becomes my intention for the session.


In clinical practice is there any special area of interest you like to support patients to manage?

Not really. I respond to where the patient is at when I meet them.


What made you so passionate about supporting people with your skillset?

I have always wanted to “help” people, so my work history centred around helping type positions. When I studied massage, I was also introduced to other healing modalities. I feel that there is more than just the physical presentation of an illness or injury and if people truly connect to their bodies, they can create a dialogue for healing.


What are your personal interests outside of the clinic?

I enjoy Trivia. I do strength training once a week because I believe that a strong muscle base sees your body lasting into the older years. I like to socialise with family and friends. I also belong to a group of ‘healer’ types and we meet regularly to support and give each other healing. I have recently taken up learning to golf – very enjoyable although I am in the very early stages of learning.
