About Ciara

Ciara MulveyAs a chartered physiotherapist with almost 10 years of experience, my philosophy is person-centred: my practice is driven by an interest and care for the holistic person, not just the injury or pain you present with.

My physiotherapy treatments are a blend of Eastern and Western techniques. This has evolved through my years in practice and I have found it to be an effective and supportive way of unlocking people’s experiences of pain. Using an Eastern approach also complements the traditional tendency in Western medicine of treating a person’s symptoms locally by adding a focus on the whole person.

When a client comes to see me, we start with an initial thorough evaluation and diagnosis. I carry out a full body evaluation to evaluate muscle, joints, bone, fascia and swelling. Increasingly, nutrition, the environment and emotion also play a significant factor in identifying and resolving the issues around a person’s pain. This integrated Mind, Body and Spirit approach underpins my entire therapeutic approch.

As well as routine physiotherapy treatments, I also use Craniosacral and Myofascial therapies, acupuncture, Reiki, and reflexology. Once we have identified your pain stressor, I will develop a personalised treatment programme to help you on your path towards optimal health.
