Joseph Devlin

 

A keen rugby player in his 20’s, Joseph experienced many of the common injuries associated with this sport, from damaged and overworked muscles to broken bones.

 

His interest in the body’s healing process was peaked after a fracture had required an operation and several months in cast and rehab. His mind was made up, he wanted to help others with their injuries...

 

After Graduating from the National Training Center of Ireland in 2006 with a National Qualification in Massage, Remedial & NeuroMuscular Therapy. He went on to complete two years of the physiotherapy degree at the Robert Gordon University In Aberdeen Scotland, graduating with Higher Diploma in Health Profession Studies. He followed on this training with qualifications In Sports First Aid, Dry Needling, Cupping and Advanced Soft Tissue and Injury Management.

 

He founded the Aberdeen Sports Massage Clinic whilst at University and over his seven years in Aberdeen, built up a solid reputation for his service to the sporting population of the shire, Including being contracted to the Aberdeen Football Club and the University Sports Scholarship Athletes. He was member of the Scottish Institute of Sport, Massage Providers Network and was invited to work with team scotland at their home games in 2014. He also worked with the Scottish and Irish, International Men’s Rugby Squads, travelling to Croatia with the Scottish Men’s Football squad. He was a part of the London 2012 Olympic support team, working with Women’s football.

 

His interest was opened after some time at a yoga retreat in his home country of New Zealand, He began dipping his toe into the world of yoga, shitazu massage, tibetian herbs, shamanic practice including sweat lodges and ceremony. He chose to undertake further training in Reiki & chinese cupping. Joseph quickly discovered that new therapists would come to him for advice and he genuinely enjoyed tutoring students and his employes in the balance between the science and art of delivering a quality therapy session. He was asked to become a teacher and has since tutored and lectured in Sports & Massage Therapy with the Scottish Massage schools.

 

After he left Aberdeen he spent some time traveling, during that time he again was asked to pass on his knowledge, this time to student yoga teachers. So he found himself some part time work in the field of lecturing in anatomy, physiology and Yoga therapy and clinical practice in Goa, India. It was then that his appreciation for yoga started to really grow, he was able to practice daily and really noticed the difference it had on his mind and body, he was also lucky to be able to learn the philosophy of yoga, all whilst enjoying teaching those who would ask insightful questions !

 

Since his return to Ireland, he has been asked to join the Sandymount NMT & Sports injury practice as a partner and senior therapist where he looks forward to applying his knowledge and skills gathered around the world from a variety of traditions, while continuing on his yoga and teaching journey.

 

What you can expect in one of his workshops…

"Always expect the unexpected"

- Oscar Wilde

 

Joseph hopes to share a blend of what he sees of value between the the science of what we know about the body from dissection and micro investigation and theory behind what happens in healing, With his personal experience of holding space for hundreds of clients as they go through a healing process.

 

Topics will range from the flight and flight nervous systems to pain gate theory and pathophysiology to advice he has had from the yoga teachers and healers he has worked with.

 

During practical elements, where self release is concerned he sees this as an essential part of the practice of anyone who has any element of disturbed movement pattern.

 

Joseph calls upon his years of experience to assess posture and movement, educate his clients on specifically what would be of great benefit for them to focus on outside of their sessions. And then working with pressure points, that are holding their over worked muscles into negative patterns of movement.

 

He utilizes simple tools such as foam rollers and tennis balls to empower his workshop attendees to be able to do their own soft tissue release techniques and achieve a positive change in their movement.

 

Who is Joseph?

Outside the clinic and teaching he loves Travel, adventures into the outdoors and unknown, walking and spending time in nature, and he is a big fan of sustainable music and movement festivals.

The active recovery 1.5-hour class is a blend of styles designed to end your week on a high. So bring along your sore, tired bodies and leave with a spring in your step.
 
Tight hips/ legs from cycling or running?
Tired shoulders from lots of yang style practice?
A pain in your neck after a long week at your desk?
 
Come and loosen up on the rollers and use tennis balls to address the pressure points in your muscles. Use your breath to enhance these techniques and become present in your body.

Simple exercises to release connective tissue and aid postural drainage will be demonstrated. Then a mixture of yin and restorative asanas will be enjoyed by all. After this, you will be relaxed, invigorated and ready for your weekend, whatever it may bring.
