Catherine MacGuinness

Catherine’s goal is to assist those who are suffering both physically and spiritually. She practices alternative body therapies that are specifically designed to treat the client’s health and wellness issues. Skilled touch is the application of touch that respects each person’s dignity, uniqueness, and their physical, emotional, psychological and energetic boundaries. It can provide health and spiritual benefits, and effective pain relief.

During her 26 years in California, before returning to Ireland in 2018, Catherine worked as a hospice nurse while studying and training  in various modalities and  became an  accredited body therapy practitioner. This followed 17 rewarding years in Africa practising nursing and midwifery. Her practice is now in Blackrock, Co. Louth and her complementary body therapies include:

* Integrated Energy Therapy  I.E.T.

* The Healing Angels

* Biogenesis Healing

* Spiritual Direction

* Meditation

* Wisdom Circles

* Rosen Method Bodytherapy

and Rosen Method Movement

* Cranio Sacral Therapy

* Lymph Drainage Therapy

* Lymphedema Therapy

* Reiki


I was referred to Catherine MacGuinness for lymphedema therapy for a condition I had for 28 years. She has helped me tremendously. When I first went to see her, my leg was very swollen and hard to touch due to the stagnation of the lymph fluid. I could not feel the kneecap. My abdomen felt full all the time and uncomfortable. I highly recommend Catherine because she is the only lymphedema therapist from whom I had any real results.


Catherine is a healer. She has worked with me during my chemotherapy and recovery by calming my digestion and neuropathy, encouraging lymph drainage and unclenching muscle tension. I always feel relaxed and restored after an hour with Catherine and think of her massage technique as meditation for my body. She is creative as changed her approach as my symptoms have changed. I love my time with Catherine!


When I came to Catherine I was suffering from chronic debilitating back pain and sever Reynauds syndrome. Both were interfering with my Professional and Social life. Regular visits with Catherine turned things around and now I lead a normal and fulfilling life – with only a need for periodic tune ups. Catherine is a true healer.
