About

Hi and thank you for visiting my page of The Neroli Room, specialising in holistic body and beauty treatments.

My name is Grainne and I really like being a Beauty/Complimentary Therapist. I studied beauty therapy many moons ago in the 80’s where I learned all the skills required to perform all the basic beauty treatments. Over the years I worked in the field of beauty both in Beauty Salons and later for myself. I continued updating my skills with post graduate courses in skincare, waxing and nail care. I left the beauty industry for a number of years to have my children and later went to study office and computer skills (so I wouldn’t get left behind!) and I also felt that maybe the ‘grass was greener on the other side’. Alas, it was not, and I realised that I really needed to be in the ‘caring’ field again helping people care for themselves. So I decided to return to my studies and applied for a Holistic Therapy Course. 

Year 1 - Here I studied Anatomy and Physiology and Body Massage (again!), however this massage course was geared more holistically than it had before, treating the ‘whole person’ which is where I discovered the real holistic approach of health and wellbeing. I also studied Nutrition which is such an important part of health and feeling well. In year 1 I also studied Reflexology which treats the whole body through reflex points on the feet which I found amazing! I was also initiated Reiki 1 and 2 which is a ‘Universal Energy Healing’ which I incorporate in all of my treatments to one degree or another.

Then came Year 2– Aromatherapy Wow! what a therapy. I thoroughly enjoyed this module and I am fascinated at all the therapeutic effects these oils can have on the ‘whole body’ i.e. physically, psychologically and spiritually. I try to incorporate Aromatherapy, where possible, in my treatments. I also studied Infant and Pregnancy Massage which are both beautiful treatments to learn and perform. Stress management was also part of this last year and it incorporated on-site massage also. This module was very important as it taught me how important it is to relax and take time out from the racing world and how so many ailments that we suffer from, stem from stress.

Throughout my time as a mature student I learned so much both from the dedicated teachers, other students and myself. I hope to continue learning in this field and updating my skills bringing as much knowledge to The Neroli Room as possible, there is always new ways, new products and new treatments to learn and pass on to all my clients.

At the neroli room my aim is to create a relaxing ambience for you to rejuvenate your mind body and soul and to treat each individual whether receiving beauty or health treatments, holistically.

Neroli oil is a plant oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree.

As an essential oil used in aromatherapy and massage, neroli is considered to have a soothing effect on the nervous system.
