Hello, I am Anita, the face and owner behind Soma Wellness. I am very grateful to be in a position to work with women from all over Cork, Kerry and Limerick.
As a reflexologist I gained my qualification in Complementary Health Therapies from Mallow College of Further Education in 2015. I took a year out and trained in many different modalities from Massage, Reflexology, Reiki and much more. However, my interest in Health and Wellbeing goes further back, in 2009 I graduated with a B.Sc Hons Degree in Health, Fitness and Leisure Studies from the Institute of Technology Tralee.
In November 2017, I took a detour on my education and trained as a GentleBirth Instructor and took it a step further and trained with DONA International as a birth doula in March 2018.
I am very proactive and passionate about lifelong education, training and upskilling. As a practitioner and business owner this means I am constantly evolving, learning and upgrading, continuing to deepens my knowledge and practice, therefore my treatments and client care benefits and evolve too.
I works intuitively with my client’s, in a positive and non judgmental environment. Together, my client and I deciphers the best treatment option for the client based on information given by the client during the consultation and drawing on my experience and knowledge.
My client’s vary from person to person, from busy parent’s needing some time out to elderly clients looking for relaxation and a chat to couple’s trying to conceive, to mom’s to be. The majority of my time is dedicated to mom’s before, during and after their pregnancy. I have a real passion and interest in the area of fertility, maternity and the postnatal period, along with women’s health in general.
