I am a Private Practice Physiotherapist treating a mixture of Musculoskeletal and Women’s health conditions. After graduating from the University of Limerick I spent 3 years practicing in Singapore in an acute and subacute hospital, afterwhich I embarked on my Private Practice journey back home here in Cork.
It is my mission to empower and educate both men and women to move freely and confidently through education and guidance. After connecting with likeminded therapists all over the world I thought it was time, at the beginning of 2021, to set up by myself to pursue my passion in empowering people to move. It was at this stage that I also began on my journey to Yoga Teaching.
Throughout 2020 I embarked on a winding road of self reflection and have had my mind opened up to a range of different questions, thoughts and ideas on how we, as both individual physiotherapists, and as a profession, can strive to do better for our clients. And so “The Thoughts Behind the Thumbs” was born.
The blog started as a platform for exploring thoughts and ideas that may or may not conform to the usual physiotherapy practices. It is intended to be a safe place to delve deeper into how we can better support our clients in doing what they love.
The blog is about more than just the physical. It is a stream of consciousness. A journey through the rabbit holes of my brain all while endeavouring to be better and do better by you.
The blog was initially started as an outlet for for reflection on my own progress as a physiotherapist and to see how best she can improve. But along the journey I realised, I was not alone in my thinking. A lot of the topics about are applicable to both healthcare professionals and members of the public all over the world.
As a physiotherapist, I am a promoter of health and exercise and endeavour to facilitate people to move comfortably and confidently in the way they desire. Promoting movement in every way possible to reap benefits in both the body and the mind that we know to be true.
