My name is Katarzyna (Kasia) Slabon. I was born in Poland, I have been living in the West of Ireland since 2005.
I am a qualified and experienced massage therapist. I am also a sound practitioner and mindfulness teacher.
I have been practising massage since 2007 and sound therapy since 2011. I facilitate relaxation as a way of restoring balance and self-healing process.
I believe that we all store emotional blockages, past memories, traumas and stress in our body, muscles and cells. That is why I use Lomi- Lomi massage for physical and emotional relaxation and sound healing for promoting changes on a deep cellular level through frequency and vibration of singing bowls and gongs.
I believe that relaxation is the key to a healthy, happy life. I use meditation or mindfulness as a stress management tool, which helps to create peace and emotional stability in our bodies and minds.
I treat every client with respect and kindness. Each session is unique and tailored to your needs.
I create a safe and peaceful place where you can relax, regain harmony and restore your own healing abilities.
The style I use in my home studio is Lomi Lomi- Hawaiian Massage with a combination of some Thai Massage techniques, I offer also Sound Massage with singing bowls and Pregnancy Massage.
My passion is supporting women during pregnancy and assisting in preparation for a positive experience of labour.
I create possibilities for future mums to relax, connect with their baby and enjoy the special time which is pregnancy through massage, relaxation techniques, mindfulness classes, and retreats for expecting mums and their partners.
I work with sound, using singing bowls and gongs. I work with individuals, groups and children of all ages. I believe the sound is a very powerful tool we can use to regain harmony and health.
I am a mother of two energetic boys and they constantly inspire me to discover effective relaxation tools for children. I love working with children of all ages, I use sound relaxation, mindfulness, yoga games, storytelling and massage during my classes. My goal is to promote mental health in schools by sharing my skills and incorporating mindfulness and relaxation to the school curriculum.
In 2014 my partner Lukasz Krzywon has joined me on my sound healing journey and has been helping me since then to run the sessions. We recorded one CD "Relaxation with the singing bowls" which had been sold in 900 copies.
Lukasz runs Little Rainbow Academy Ireland, providing workshops for different schools, clubs and communities. He facilitates Drum Circles, Samoan Sasa, Mandala Workshops, Philosophy sessions with children.
