sometimes everyBODY needs a HAND


Welcome to Lámh Clinic – owned and run by Fiona McDonagh

I believe that true well-being encompasses not only physical health but also mental, emotional, and spiritual harmony. My holistic therapy clinic is a sanctuary of healing, dedicated to nurturing your whole self and helping you achieve a balanced and hopefully more fulfilled life.
My clinic is space is in Gort town, combining artful décor, comfort and coziness. Here, I practice one-on-one sessions with clients, such as Acupuncture including Cupping Massage therapy and moxa, Craniosacral Therapy, and Raindrop Technique massage.
I combine different modalities for the benefit of my clients. This flexible approach allows me to tailor treatments to address each client's specific concerns and preferences. I believe, there may be only a handful of other therapists, who combine Acupuncture with Craniosacral therapy – it really is, a lovely combination.
My vision for my clinic space and my practice reflects my Holistic and client-centred approach to wellness. Focusing on creating a welcoming and comfortable environment and providing a variety of therapeutic options. My aim in my practice is to help my clients to achieve their wellness goals and leave my clinic feeling refreshed and transformed.
I treat a diverse range of people, from many walks of life, a variety of ages and with various issues or health problems. A typical session lasts 90 minutes, it’s important to give people time, to hear what they have to say, think or feel about what is going on for them.
I enjoy continuing to expand my knowledge, keeping up to date with any new information, techniques, best practices and I take CPD courses annually. I am dedicated to ongoing learning, for my clients’ well-being and my own personal understanding of what’s good for me. I will often try things out, before suggesting it to others.
Here in Gort town, we are about 45 minutes from Galway city, 20 minutes from Ennis town. And only a stones’ throw from The Burren National Park.

Brigid, Goddess of Healers

Brigid, the Saint and Goddess has been worshiped by the Celtics as a Saint for over fifteen hundred years, and as a Goddess long before. To this day there is the unusual blending of Brigid the ancient Goddess with the Saint, this mixture of Christian and Old Celtic and pagan lore, is quite common.

Brigid’s day is February 1st, she is seen as the bringer of Spring (in the Northern Hemisphere. Representing Fertility - Maiden aspect of the Triple Goddess). Even nowadays, Brigid crosses are made in her honour, on Jan 31st (Brigid’s Eve) and traditionally a piece of cloth (a piece of her sacred mantle - brat Bríde) is placed outside the house, for the saint to bless as she passes by, and these would be brought back into the home, and in the coming year, these would be used to heal people and animals.

She is known as the Goddess of Healers, Poets, Smiths, Keeners, Childbirth/Midwives and Inspiration; Goddess of Fire and Hearth. Legend tells us that when She was born, a tower of flame reached from the top of her head to the heavens. Her birth, which took place at sunrise, is rumoured to have given the family house the appearance of being on fire. The King of Leinster granted Brigid land for a monastery in Kildare, around 470AD, and she became Abbess of the first convent in Ireland. The area had a Druidic oak grove, going back to pre-Christian times, there was a Sacred fire burned where priestesses used to gather on the hill of Kildare, while invoking a goddess named Brigid to protect their herds and to provide a fruitful harvest. The monastery was active up to 16th century, it was a centre of learning and art. The Eternal Flame, was tended by nineteen nuns who each took a night to hold vigil. The Brigidine Sisters came to live in Kildare in 1992 and on February 2, 1996 the Flame was relit and the intention is to keep it burning perpetually once again. In my clinic space, I have a candle lit from this Perpetual Flame of Kildare.

There are many Sacred/Holy wells all over Ireland in Brigid’s honour, it is common to adorn these with flowers, greenery and candles, often with offerings of coins and other silver objects, some of these wells are sacred to Her for thousands of years. The waters of her wells are said to heal all manner of disease.

Things to considers before a treatment

It’s a good idea to have something to eat before a session, your body needs it, as it is actively working during the treatment. Wearing loose clothing, particularly from knees to feet, elbows to fingers – allows access to the body for treatment. If you need to change/cancel your appointment, please give 24 hours notice. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will be asked to pay in full before arranging another booking
