Massage Therapist, Reiki Master and Munay-Ki Teacher Trainer
Deirdre has always had a strong sense of what needs to be done to help nurture injured people and animals and she has been a massage therapist in McGregor for more than 15yrs and a Reiki Master for over 12yrs. She has studied Anatomy, Muscle activation and Pilates as well as other natural healing modalities. She trained extensively hoping to make the South African Olympic Eventing team in 2012, only to have this dream slip away after a bad fall. She continues to ride and train horses and has a deep and abiding love of nature and all things natural.
Deirdre offers a range of treatments from a full body salt exfoliation, to therapeutic or remedial massage. Deirdre works intuitively and holistically to offer a unique treatment tailored to your specific needs. Sometimes we need to talk about things in order to let them go or to hear our own wisdom, or in fact to laugh about a difficult situation we are going through and Deirdre offers a safe place for this exchange to happen. Should you need sacred silence for your massage that is also of course offered.
Deirdre is passionate about her horses and her healing practice, sometimes combining the two. If you would like to help with feeding the horses, please ask and if possible we can make this happen. Horses are incredibly healing.
Deirdre highly recommends a 2hr salt exfoliation treatment for all detox retreatants. The treatment includes a full body salt scrub with natural sea salt and aromatherapy oils to gently polish and remove all excess dead skin whilst increasing blood circulation and allowing toxins to be drawn out. You also get a full organic facial with a clay or seaweed mask, then you have a shower and bring your super soft skin back to the massage table where you receive a full body massage and the rest of the facial. This is an ideal opportunity to release not only the physical, but the emotional baggage you may be carrying, as you imagine it being scrubbed and then rinsed away from you.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your forward journey.
