Welcome to Holistic Garden
Hello and thank you for visiting the Holistic Garden website where you will find information on my massage and holistic therapies that can help to restore you in body, mind and spirit.
My name is Edward and I am here to serve as a facilitator in your healing process and transformation.
Originally from Kazakhstan, Central Asia, my interest in massage began as a young teenager when I was first taught by my father – a surgeon, physiotherapist and masseur. He showed me how to give medical back massages, based on his knowledge and experience. I have been learning ever since then and now have been practicing massage for half my life!
I am now an ITEC Swedish Holistic and Sport Massage Therapist with several years of massage practice in Dublin and extensive experience in alternative healing and holistic therapy.
My credo is: “Learn from the best and go directly to the source”. That is why I decided to travel to Thailand after my graduation from the Irish Academy of Massage and Beauty in Dublin. While studying at the International Thai Massage School and learning Thai and other massage techniques, I discovered that traditional Thai massage is a mix of Indian Yoga and Chinese Acupressure.

I have returned home to Ireland bringing with me all of this learning and experience and in the last few years have been working in private practices in Dublin as a holistic and a massage therapist and Hatha Yoga teacher. I have now opened Holistic Garden in Rathgar and I am here every Wednesday and Friday at this address. Please contact me via the website, email or mobile to make an appointment. There are some available times on other weekdays and for these please contact me directly. I am also based in the West Wood Fitness Club, Sandymount on Thursdays and Saturdays and you can make a booking for a treatment with me there on (01) 20 33 700.
What I bring to my work as a therapist are my many years of experience and a complete focus on my clients and their health and well-being. My enthusiasm for complementary therapies means that I am constantly researching and finding new ways to carry out more effective treatments. And as I am a Reiki healer, I am also committed to applying the concepts of energetic healing and compassionate touch to all my therapeutic treatments.
My other great passion is to help people to reach their potential, to bring more of what they want into their life, to coach them in improving their lifestyle, fitness and concentration and to help them create positive self-
