After graduating in Anatomy & Physiology, Therapuetic Reflexology and Holistic Massage in Ireland, John continued his education and trained in the Dr Vodder method of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD), Basic & Level I, in Cork and continued to complete his extensive training in Levels II & III at the world renowned Wittlinger Academie in Austria under the guidance and teachings of Professor Hildegard Wittlinger.  John chose the Dr Vodder method of MLD as it is the original technique developed by Dr Emil Vodder in the 1930’s.  Extended training followed with the University of Glasgow (Lymphoedema Management), Johns Hopkins University (Introduction to Breast Cancer), Yale Medical University (Understanding Breast Malignancies) and Trinity College (understanding Metastatic Cancer).  John qualified in Aromatherapy in 2019 at Green Tara College to enhance the pathways to client health and well-being.


Since volunteering some 30 years ago in a hospice enviroment in London, I found the benefits of complimentary and alternative therapies, often in conjunction with western medicine, very beneficial in patient care. In the years that have followed I have trained in many therapies that take a holistic approach to achieving client wellbeing. Our bodies are amazing creations and have an incredible ability to heal, perhaps we just need to listen to them a little closer?

Blessings, John.
