Blarney Osteopathic Clinic

I was first introduced to osteopathy in my late teens after an accident, and I was immediately fascinated by its effectiveness and non-invasive approach as a manual therapy. Osteopathy was a fantastic help to me when I needed it and allowed me to quickly return to my normal levels of activity (all my sporting activities) through Osteopathic treatment, and advice on rehabilitation.

I eagerly embarked on my first year of Osteopathic studies in my hometown Turin in Italy, and subsequently moved to CEESO Osteopathic college, in Lyon, France in year two. At CEESO, I received an exceptional education in cranial and visceral techniques. I especially liked the cranial and visceral approach, which is a very effective way of detecting and treating damaged parts of the body which works to make sure that the body’s framework is in alignment. It was in Lyon that I had the pleasure of meeting Marine Schirru, a fellow osteopath and my current colleague at Mallow, Blarney & Fermoy Osteopathic Clinics.

After two years in Lyon, I continued with my Osteopathic studies by moving to the UK to complete my master’s degree at the European School of Osteopathy (ESO). The ESO (established in 1974) is a renowned Osteopathic school in Kent, which offers students a full-time master’s degree course. I refined my skills and expertise in structural, fascial, and cranial techniques, learning from the excellent and highly experienced tutors. Following an additional two years of full-time study I was delighted to graduate, amounting to a total of five years of full-time education in Osteopathy. Osteopaths who graduate from the ESO are highly regarded and in demand throughout Europe and beyond. Throughout my clinical training, I had the opportunity to practise in various specialist clinics such as women’s health, pregnancy, paediatrics, headaches and migraines clinic, and the sports injury clinic, areas in which I have a keen interest in and look forward to treating in the Osteopathic clinics.

My osteopathic career began in Italy and I’m now delighted to continue my osteopathic journey here in Ireland. I am a “happy-go-lucky” person, social, dependable, and dynamic. I like to learn and develop new skills. I have a keen interest in how the body works and have completed courses in Acupuncture and Naturopathy. In my leisure time, I enjoy reading and gardening, as well as outdoor rock climbing. I adore animals, especially cats. I eagerly anticipate going on long hikes and exploring all the outdoor activities that Cork and Ireland has to offer, with my friend and colleague Marine. I also enjoy music, especially jam sessions (and am excited to immerse myself into the Irish culture, trad sessions and all!). I am fluent in Italian, French, English, and Spanish, and I am currently learning Portuguese and Greek – and now perhaps, a little bit of Gaeilge!

I am delighted to be part of the Osteopathic team at the Blarney, Mallow & Fermoy Osteopathic Clinics where I’ve had the pleasure of working with exceptional colleagues, Judith, Marine and Damien as well as the various healthcare practitioners at the mutli-disclipinary clinics at the Bellevue Clinic, Mallow and Cork Healing Centre, Blarney
