Being healthy isn’t just about the physical aspects, like eating better and getting more exercise – it’s about all aspects of your health; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This is the mantra of Clonakilty based massage therapist and reflexologist Joyce O’Sullivan who has opened Solace Holistic Centre to provide a wide range of therapies that “support healing from within”.

Having worked as a holistic therapist for a number of years now, and based in Clonakilty for six years, Joyce has found that some clients, at times, have needed the support of several therapies together. “There are times when we all need support for different reasons,” she says, “to ease emotional stress, anxiety, digestive issues, muscular tension or to resolve general feelings of imbalance. To meet this need, I decided to open Solace Holistic Centre.”

The centre is in the beautifully restored Old Grainstore at Sand Quay Mill (opposite Clona Dairy) and provides a safe space for anyone who feels they need extra support in their life. “Our lives, ourselves, and therefore our needs, are always changing,” Joyce explains. “To move forward it is important to realise that there are many therapies that can support you through these, sometimes difficult, life changes.”

A diverse mix of therapies is available on a daily or weekly basis in Solace Holistic Centre; to support the work that she does, Joyce has brought in a number of very carefully selected therapists. Each therapy is effective individually, but they also work well in combination.

At the centre’s core is Joyce who is available full-time from Monday to Saturday for holistic massage and reflexology sessions, whilst Tracy McCarthy is available on reception to answer any queries.

Tracy also provides pre- and post-natal holistic massage and reflexology and will be starting her baby massage classes in the Autumn. The benefits of pre-natal massage include hormone regulation, reduction of swelling, nerve and back pain, as well as reduced stress and better sleep so this therapy is proving a god-send for her mum-to-be clients!Solace outside

Also available is: Crystal Therapy every Monday; Homeopathy every Tuesday and Saturday; Lomi Lomi Massage and an Acupuncturist every Tuesday; a nutritionist, Rahanni, IET (Integrated Energy) therapist and a Microblading specialist every Wednesday, and Reiki is available on Thursdays. Friday’s provide support through counselling and psychotherapy.

Also on Wednesday from 12pm-1pm and 1pm-2pm is a meditation group, this is a drop-in group so no booking is required – €10 per person.
