Welcome to Ekko Therapies
My name is Cindy Morrissey and I am running my Shiatsu & Holistic Body Therapy clinic from the beautiful seaside village of Malahide as well as a weekly clinic in Aoibhneas Women’s & Children’s Refuge.
I’m a Shiatsu therapist with particular interest in women health, stress & trauma work. Being of benefit to all I love giving Shiatsu whether you come to see me with back pain, anxiety, post injury challenges or simply to relax. In addition to therapeutic Shiatsu sessions, I offer beautifully tailoured holistic bodywork treatments including Holistic & Deep Tissue Massage, Meridian Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage and more.
Shiatsu is a respected therapy chosen by many for the prevention and rehabilitation of ill health and mental wellbeing. Each session offers a natural approach to a healthy and energetically balanced life.
