How it all began!
Hi my name is Helen, I'm the proud owner of the Dublin Wellness Centre!
I became interested in Health & Wellness after a trip to India where I contracted giardia a parasitic infection from the water. I became very unwell with recurring fevers & ill-health.
On my return I tried antibiotics & anti-parasitics for nearly a year to no avail, until a friend suggested I visit a Homeopath. After two weeks, all the severe symptoms that I had been struggling with for 18 months disappeared.
The chronic kidney infections I had also suffered with for many years disappeared & haven’t returned since. I haven’t taken an antibiotic since, that’s over 19 years ago and I haven’t looked back!
So enthralled to Homeopathy was I, that I started studying it in 2000 and the first Dublin Holistic Centre was born on Duke St., in 2004 when I qualified.
It was a single room and I wanted to build my Homeopathy practice, but I also wanted to offer other therapies to my clients as I realised early on that while Homeopathy is my “go to” medicine, I also occasionally needed Acupuncture, Massage, Counselling or Yoga and if I needed a multi-disciplinary approach, then so too did my clients.
Towards the end of our time on Duke St, there were 6 other therapists practicing from the space. In 2007 I opened on Wicklow St., above Nourish Health food store. We had three treatment rooms & quickly built up to having 20 therapists working together.
I found myself quite busy at this stage running my practice & running the centre and as I was about to marry my love, I knew that if I wanted to have children then I was going to need help running the centre, in order to do that, I needed a bigger premises.
We moved into our current premises on South William St in 2010 and we haven’t looked back.
Saskia runs the show with the support of Luigsech & the wonderful ladies on Reception, currently Katrina, Deepa & the Elaine’s!
I'm a mother to a gorgeous 7 year old boy, Faolan, who can often be found in the centre signing in students and the Dublin Wellness Centre is now the largest multi-disciplinary natural health centre in Ireland.
We hope you benefit from us, as much as we enjoy what we do and if you are new to natural therapies, we hope we can dispel any myths & introduce you to a new & self-empowered way to health & vitality!
Looking forward to welcoming you,
Hi, my name is Saskia. I am Dutch/Spanish, born and raised in the Netherlands and eventually moved to Dubai when I was 21.
I started working as a flight attendant, which was an ideal job for me because I love traveling. In just a few years I managed to see so much of the world and got to tick off many destinations from my bucketlist. I still remember how I couldn't believe that my very first flight ever as a flight attendant was to Melbourne, Australia! Australia was a place I always wanted to go to, but didn't think I would ever have the chance to.
As exciting as flying around the world is, it is also very exhausting, stressful, and simply put just physically draining. I felt like I needed something to help me with the jetlags and the irregular hours, which is when I turned to Yoga. I quickly fell in love with the practice when I started noticing the differences in both my physical and mental body. It turned into a passion of mine which I practiced nearly every day, whether it was at home in Dubai, a hotelroom in Bangkok or a beach in Mauritius.
I eventually wanted to take my Yoga practice to the next level, and signed up for a 200hour Vinyasa teacher training, which I completed just days before I moved to Dublin in the early summer of 2017. Moving to a new country also was the perfect time for me to change career directions, which is why I was so excited to find the Dublin Wellness Centre. Stepping into the Centre felt familiar, even though I had never been there before.
My role here within Dublin Wellness Centre is that of Manager, and I also teach Vinyasa Yoga. What I find so inspiring about being in the Dublin Wellness Centre, is that you are constantly surrounded by colleagues who have decided to follow their dreams and have turned their passions into their career. Everyone here is always willing to share their knowledge and expertise. If you cough or sneeze once, the Acupuncture needles and herbal medicines come flying your way! Or if your wrists feel achy, a Pilates teacher or Massage Therapists steps in with their healing hands. Whatever your needs are, there will always be someone here who can help you.
My name is Elaine McLaughlin and I am originally from the lovely city of Derry.
I have always had an avid interest in sport, health and nutrition but more recently I have focused on a more whole body and mind approach to health. I continue to learn and recently qualified as a yoga teacher, which I feel benefits not only me, but also my clients.
I have been working in the centre as a massage therapist and reflexologist for over two years. I also do a weekly stint on reception and enjoy the different perspective this role gives me of the centre and how it works.
I feel very blessed to be part of such an amazing group of people.
The centre is an oasis of calm in a busy part of Dublin and my hope is that every client that comes to the centre benefits positively from the experience that they have here.
Namaste! I come from Nepal, the country of the Himalayas. I started working at the Dublin Holistic Centre in 2014 shortly after I had arrived in Ireland at a time when I knew very little about the people and culture.
It was big change for me but the welcome, love and support I received from Helen, Bella, Anna and everyone in the DWC made me feel at home which I am forever grateful to the DWC family.
I work as a receptionist here and my main roles are to serve our clients informing them of the various treatments our therapists offer, making suitable appointments and assisting therapists in managing treatments rooms.
The atmosphere is very energetic, full of positive vibes, peaceful and everyone is so friendly; the fact that I am still here almost four years later is a testament to the fact that I am proud to be part of DWC. Thank you!!
My name is Elaine and I have been working from the Dublin Wellness Centre for close to four years. I work as a massage therapist and absolutely love my job. I love the opportunity I get to make someone feel unwound, soothed and most importantly, cared for.
From a purely physical standpoint, I am fascinated by the workings of the human body, the interconnectedness of every system and am passionate about constantly furthering my studies and skillset.
The centre feels very much like a family, each member is very open and generous with their knowledge and experience and this creates a wonderful network of help and support for all our clients.
My name is Katrina. I'm originally from the Philadelphia area, though have happily called Ireland home for the past 6 years. I've always been inclined towards all things spiritual and have worked within the healing and intuitive arts for pretty much my entire adult life.
My journey started off with Tarot and Reiki, then Integrated Energy Therapy and quickly progressed to include many other modalities including my main love - astrology. I seek to help others empower themselves to create change in their lives through delving into their healing journey and tuning into their own natural cycles.
I've been working within the lovely walls of the Dublin Wellness Centre since 2015. I work privately with clients for healing, tarot/astrological guidance and also facilitate New/Full Moon Circles and workshops. You can also find me behind the reception desk once a week!
Dublin Wellness Centre is truly a sanctuary within the city with an enchanting atmosphere created by the lovely ladies who make it all happen, the therapists who work from there, and the beautiful souls that come in and out of the Centre each day (you!)
