“Having played, coached and managed with club and county for over 30 years I fully understand the importance of proper injury assessment and treatment.Also to have proper pre/post recovery massage is essential for improved performance.
I’ve been fortunate to have worked with some really good physios and physical therapists in this time but more recently I’ve worked closely with Leona.
Her immediate knowledge,interest and passion for her work has been the biggest reasons why I would recommend players,teammates and most recently fellow triathletes to attend her with any injury concerns.
She also shows great interest,knowledge and keen to advise on diet and nutrition for everyday living or sports performance improvement.”

“Coming from a history of running related injuries I was determined to prevent further injuries occurring. Leona had been highly recommended to me as a good physical therapist and I booked an appointment with her immediately.
Over a number of months Leona has work through my muscle groups, her physical therapy sessions are intense and very thorough. She has also recommended specific exercises to help strengthen weaker muscles. I receive physical therapy with Leona regularly but particularly pre and post race which is extremely important for race preparation and recovery.
Leona is passionate about the science of physical therapy and it shows in her keen interest in her client’s well being.
I put my injury free race season down to regular physical sessions with her and I have recommended a number of my club training buddies to her.”

“I sought a physical therapist as I had a severe injury to my neck. I luckily found Leona. She did an amazing job of relieving the pain and discomfort and had me back functioning again. I continued to see her for maintenance and then injured my knee. I of course saw Leona for the problem at first I resisted the exercises and stretches she recommended and the injury reoccurred however when I did everything I was asked of by Leona I am now injury free and able to exercise. I still continue to see her for maintenance and always feel rejuvenated after her sessions.”
“Leona treated me for groin, lower back, upper back and neck problems.. Treatments were a success and i was able to continue my training for GAA football..i can highly recommend Leona as a physical therapist. she is very professional and her ability to deal with the problems that i had was impeccable. she is very knowledgeable in all areas of the injury’s that effect a Gaelic footballer. Her after care advise that she gives is great. i find that she will explain in detail how to prevent injury especially through stretching. keep up the work……”
“I have played at the highest level of senior hurling in Kilkenny and more recently in Dublin. I have work with some fantastic back room staff and physical therapists. I consider myself very luck to be treated by somebody as experienced as Leona. I suffered with a very sore and tight back and huge groin problems, with some great work from Leona and her vast array of techniques she managed to get me back to full fitness and gave me a great insight into nutrition and a great exercise routine to make sure i didn’t get injured again. At 35 years of age I am still enjoying playing the sport i love so much and will continue to play knowing I’m in great hands with Leona”Thomas Brophy, Hurler and Captain, Faughs and The Rower-Inistioge hurling clubs
