Antoinette trained and graduated from the Scottish School of Colonic Hydrotherapy in 2014, she is one of a handful of therapists based in Ireland with this qualification and is registered with the IPCH (Institute of Professional Colon Hydrotherapy).
Dual qualified with a Diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition from CNM Galway in 2016 (College of Natural Medicine) and is currently pursuing a Diploma in Naturopathy & Accupuncture with CMATCM (The College of Medical Accupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine). Previously working as a nurse working in the HSE, Antoinette decided to change career, follow her heart and commence studying natural approaches to health and wellbeing after experiencing the healing benefits of naturopathy herself.
Taking over Nua Holistic in 2014, Antoinette is a highly praised professional working to help each and every client benefit from Nutritition Colonic Hydrotherapy as she did. Her passion for health is only surpassed by her love of people. She devotes her life to the upliftment and healing process of those who seek it.
In 2004, I graduated with a Bachelor of Nursing Degree from NUI Galway. I initially commenced work in the private sector as a Staff Nurse in a Care of the Elderly facility and after two very busy and happy years, I returned to the acute sector as I had gained employment in an Orthopedic Specialty. I then commenced working in the Orthopaedic Ward in Mayo General Hospital.
Life changed in 2010 when I began to feel unwell. I was tired all the time and experienced poor memory and cognition. Even after long periods of rest, I was overcome with exhaustion and unable to retain information. One night I awoke with heart palpitations and a racing heart so I attended A&E where I was eventually commenced on medication including Sodium Channel blockers, and Thyroid hormones in order to help control my symptoms.
As the medications caused some unpleasant side effects, I felt I was left with no choice but to discontinue them. This is how I really came to appreciate naturopathy and explore self healing. Embarking on this new approach to health I gradually began to recover from illness and it ignited a love of nature in me which compelled me to complete many courses including a Certificate in Nutrition (Nutrition for Everyday Living, College of Naturopathic Medicine, 2013), a Diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition (CNM Galway 2016) and and an amazing detoxification system called ART (Autonomic Response Testing) a healing modality that was an absolute game changer in my health and well being. Read more about it here.
I was driven to study Colonic Hydrotherapy after personally experiencing the healing and therapeutic benefits it brings to the body. Flushing out the colon old waste matter restores balance to the body and improves tone,function and peristalsis. In fact it challenges the body to work for itself!
At Nua Holistic, I work with clients to educate and empower them and i also providing a deeply therapeutic intervention so that they leave feeling informed, and in touch with their own bodies. I encourage anyone who suffers from conditions such as bloating, flatulence, constipation, heartburn, colitis and Irritable bowel syndrome to give Colonic Irrigation a go and see the wonderful benefits it can bring to your body!
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Colonics have literally changed my life (and I did not expect it!!) Within 3 weeks I feel so much better. More energy, less emotional and a lot more clear headed!
An experience I would recommend to everyone. Antoinette is a true professional, she put me at ease straight away with her caring approach and provided me with so much information to take home and use in everyday life. I feel so much better overall and will definitely be back for more. Thanks a mill X
