About Oonagh

Oonagh graduated from the University of Westminster in 2002 after three years full time study with a BSc (Hons) degree in Health Sciences with Complementary Therapies. The course included Swedish and Thai yoga massage, craniosacral therapy techniques, herbal medicine, nutrition, sports nutrition, kinesiology, homeopathy and more as well as anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, clinical examination and diagnostic skills. Oonagh also holds a current first aid certificate. She chooses to attend professional development seminars and feels this is an essential part of being an effective and professional practitioner. See qualifications here.

She chose to study alternative therapies following health problems of her own. She used to suffer from a persistent lower back problem with sciatica and therefore understands how painful and limiting chronic pain can be. This responded very well to regular visits to an Osteopath and Bowen therapist. The main influence however was emergency surgery due to ruptured appendix. The appendix had a tumour on it and therefore Oonagh was seen by specialists and had follow up for a number of years. It was during the recovery from the operation that Oonagh applied to Westminster university and following the September 11th tragedy in 2001 she took unpaid leave from her flying job to finish the final year of her degree and begin work as a therapist. She enjoyed her new career so much that she never returned to flying and still continues to do so.

Oonagh has over a decade of full time clinical experience and has worked for many years in London in a busy natural therapy centre, The C.H.A.I.M. Centre, Willesden Green as well as at an urban spa, Zen Health centre, Notting Hill. She then began working as a mobile therapist in North and West London.

Following her move to Cambridgeshire in 2006 she now concentrates on her work as a mobile therapist. She visits homes in Huntingdon, St Ives, Peterborough, Winwick, Great Gidding, Alconbury, Longstowe, Bourn on a regular basis plus many more villages and towns.

Oonagh's leisure time activities involve horse riding and snowboarding so she has a very good understanding of how common injuries and fitness problems affect performance in these particular sports as well as many others. She has worked with marathon runners, tri-athletes, cyclists, swimmers and many more.
