" I would like to thank Ciarán for giving me back my life. For over two years I suffered with back pain which was getting progressively worse, to the extent that I felt I had no quality of life. I had given up my hobbies dancing walking and doing my garden. A trip to the supermarket meant I had to lean on a trolley to support me , and simple tasks like getting in and out of my car was becoming unbearable.
After seeing various therapists and trying different treatments without success I was referred to a pain management clinic in July. But before my first appointment I was advised to go and see Ciarán.
On my first visit, Ciarán listened to my problems and asked me what I wanted to achieve, my answer was simple. I wanted to make my body stronger, get fit, and get back to my old self. Ciarán explained the causes of back pain and after a small fitness test of what movements I could do he said that muscle imbalance was possibly the primary cause of my problem.
A combination of hands on treatment, exercise and weight training has produced a fantastic outcome. After only 1 session Ciarán was able to release muscle tension and provide me with a program to build and strengthen deficient and weak areas of my body. After only four sessions I was pain free and am now back to my active life.
Ciarán is a gifted knowledgeable therapist who cares about his patients and treats the cause and not the symptom. I continue to see him as he supports my goals for maintaining a strong and healthy body. Thanks Ciarán, Noelle"
Ciarán's skill and application of Active Release techniques in combination with deep tissue massage delivers immediate relief from soft tissue injuries obtained in competitive Aikido and BJJ. In most cases you will walk away from a single ART session with much reduced physical pain and increased mobility.
You will discover that a part of any session with Ciarán you also come away with an understanding of how to manage your recovery away from his clinic with a schedule of useful easy to apply stretches and excercises that will accelerate the rehab process.
You will also discover that Ciarán is an evangelist for the importance of a "Clean Diet" in everyday life as well as in the role of recovery and sports performance, and he is not shy about pointing out where personal adjustments can be made. :).
Ciarán's services were recommended to me from players in the League of Ireland with whom he is highly regarded.
" After spending thousands on consultations, specialists, physios, injections and finding no cure for my pain, I thought I'd never play football again.
A friend had recommended I see Ciarán but I was honestly fed up with seeing therapists on top of therapists with no results. I managed to drag myself down to Ciarán and after just 1 session I felt an immediate imporvement. After a few weeks Ciarán had me back in the gym to rebuild my strength, and after just 3 months I took part in my first preason training in almost 4 years. I'm now back playing Leinster Senior League Football on a regular basis, a day I thought would never come.
Ciarán is the best Physical Therapist I have ever been to. He is a gentleman and a gifted individual. If you have an injury and need help, he's your man."
" I had recurring pain in both knees while training for a marathon. I had bought knee straps to try solve the issue but to no effect.
Ciarán diagnosed the issue at the initial consultation as being not in the knees but further up the leg in the I.T. Band.
After just 2 treatments I was back running pain free and thanks to some useful tips on how to maintain my progress, the pain has never returned. "
