INTRODUCING CINDY MORRISSEY
Cindy Morrissey is a Shiatsu Practitioner based in Raheny, Dublin. She supports women of all ages through:
- Compassionate Inquiry*,
- Massage, and
- Indian Head Massage.
Cindy often blends different therapies to tailor to each client. She works with to rebalance, gentle movement to mobilise, breathwork to bring back calmness within and compassionate inquiry to talk through the things that we can’t seem to let go.
* Compassionate Inquiry (CI) is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté combining talking therapy with body inquiry.
Cindy is a registered therapist with the Shiatsu Society Ireland (SSI), the National Register of Reflexologists Ireland (NRRI) and a certified practitioner of Compassionate Inquiry. All Irish health insurance providers recognize the benefits of massage and reflexology and most offer refunds on treatment fees paid to registered practitioners.
Having trained in Shiatsu for Fibromyalgia specifically an initial consultation allows us to explore together what is helpful. Gentle fascia releases often help, holding, breathing, acknowledging whats there … and in between little checkins to negotiate touch and release..
Guided Drawing® is a body work approach that enables us to map body sensations – physical and emotional – in a trauma-informed way. Under Cindy’s guidance we bring inner tension, patterns of fear and pain held in the body to paper. This embodied art therapy approach is informed by neurobiological insights into human stress responses. Almost all new science around neurobiology and complex developmental trauma promote therapies that have a body focus, are bilateral and movement based, and allow sensory integration. And yet there is scarcity of therapies that can actually facilitate such an approach. Guided Drawing does.
One day a week Cindy volunteers her time and experience as Shiatsu Therapist in Aoibhneas, a front line refuge from domestic violence for women and children in North Dublin. Experiencing domestic abuse – physical, emotional, psychological or sexual – causes severe stress and and often, trauma. In fact trauma often stays for the long term and well into a woman’s later life.
