Welcome to your Holistic Home

I decided to make an appointment with Barbara because I was suffering from bloating, low energy, and severe psoriasis. I had looked at many other options that had not yet helped my symptoms. Within a very short time of following Barbara's nutritional and lifestyle advice (and delicious recipes!) my bloating had disappeared, my energy levels improved, and I felt great. Through Barbara's care, I now know what foods tend to aggravate my symptoms or cause my psoriasis to flare. Every appointment with Barbara is so individual to you. She is sincere and considerate and works hard to listen to your aims and needs in order to set realistic goals! I would highly recommend nutritional therapy with Barbara O'Keeffe. Aisling, Dublin


I have attended four of Barbara’s Workshops and thoroughly enjoyed all of them! I found her talks to be engaging, informative and inspirational. After each talk I couldn’t wait to go home and cook something nutritious and healthy. A particular highlight of each workshop are the yummy treats she supplies the attendees with!..I have been making her yummy refined sugar free tahini fudge treats ever since! I have also changed all my skincare products to a natural and organic range, on Barbara’s recommendation, which dramatically improved my sensitive skin. I would highly recommend going to one of Barbara’s workshops if you have any interest in healthy living and/or Nutritional Therapy! Karen Scanlan, Portmarnock

I attended Mairead Flannagan in October/November 2013 for three sessions of Bio-energy therapy. I had heard about Bio-energy through a counsellor colleague of mine. She though it would help as I was suffering with stress and wasn’t sleeping well. Mairead was very warm and inviting and I felt very at ease with her. I expected it to take a few sessions before I noticed any difference but I was wrong. The results were immediate and after the first session I had a deep and relaxing night’s sleep. As the weeks progressed I was sleeping better and my stress and levels diminished. When the course finished Mairead recommended that I do a follow up session a few weeks later which was very beneficial and helped keep me on track. I was amazed by the power of bio-energy therapy and would strongly recommend Mairead as a Bio-energy therapist and I found the whole experience very up-lifting.

“I have been going to Claire for years and I have 3 beautiful children and pregnant again with number 4. I would highly recommend Claire, she is one of the best reflexologists and I feel so relaxed and healthy after each session. You don’t know what you’re missing!” Lori


“I went to see Neil the Osteopath about a problem I have had with my hip over the past 18 months after the second visit my problem was sorted… Thanks so much River Holistic” DK


Sonia does a combination of Indian Head Massage and reflexology on me; it is extremely relaxing and I always look forward to our sessions. I have had many massages from many different therapists over the years but Sonia is the best I have ever found. She is very skillful and really cares about her clients. It makes a big difference. I highly recommend her. Go to her and you will be delighted you did. Marese Hickey


Dear River Holistic Staff, “Thank you for a wonderfully restful experience last week. I was visiting Dublin from the U.S. and my sister recommended I visit Aoife at River Holistic Center for a nice relaxing treatment. I was told that the Natural Facelift Message was “gorgeous” and I was not disappointed. From the very start the afternoon was easy. I had no problem finding the Centre, just down the hill from the Raheny DART station. Aoife greeted me when I arrived and projected a serene air that, along with the tranquil surroundings, had me feeling peaceful in no time. Aoife did a wonderful job, as evidenced by several compliments I received from people after the treatment- that my eyes looked brighter and that I looked younger. Regardless of how I looked, I felt extremely relaxed during the treatment. After the treatment I felt reinvigorated and ready for anything. I had never had a Natural Facelift Message before this, but it will not be my last one. I am only sorry that I will have to wait for my next trip to Dublin to visit River Holistic. Thank you again. Sincerely, Kelley Tansey”


“I love your rejuvenation facials so much! Yesterday I was getting lots of compliments about how smooth my skin is looking coming up to the wedding. So I had to confess it was thanks to your facials! It’s also a great way to relax and forgot all my wedding planning stresses. Thanks so much, you’re a miracle worker! See you next week for another pre-wedding facial. x A Very Happy Bride to Be.. Thanks Aoife”
