About Ffion Thomas

Hi, I’m Ffion. I am a Somatic Experiencing practitioner and manual therapist, specialising in Holistic Facial Massage. I run a Holistic Wellwoman practice from Dublin Wellbeing Centre. I have been a Holistic Therapist for ten years and have trained in a range of Ayurvedic facial massage techniques, lymphatic drainage, abdominal massage, Thai massage, Indian head massage, and traditional relaxation massage. Holistic Facial Massage is an amalgamation of these modalities.

Today, I combine my years of experience of hands-on work with Somatic Experiencing - Trauma Resolution Therapy. This gives my practice a level of depth and understanding of the nervous system that has facilitated much more effective and complete session work with my clients. Somatic Experiencing is a whole modality in itself that doesn’t require any touch, but combining elements of it with hands-on work can be a really powerful way to work with many body- based issues such as pain, anxiety, tension patterns, and numbness.

I have done specialised training in Innate Postpartum Care, Somatic Experiencing for sexual and sexuality trauma, and Thai Womblifting. These tools and practices also inform my work with women.

I was blessed to have Ffion lay her soft gentle hands on my skin. I'm a new mother with not much time to spare so this was the ultimate treatment. My facial massage was out of this world. Truly relaxing and I felt comfortable enough to drift in and out of sleep. This has been the best facial massage I've ever received. Then Ffion gave me an abdominal massage and worked on releasing pressure under my ribs after being pregnant. Both of these treatments are very different yet extremely beneficial. Her work is caring and kind. Ffion is present for you and your needs and she walks you through her process as she goes along . My experience from start to finish was beautiful and Ffion is a warm gentle ball of energy   - Krisha Hurley -

I had a session with Ffion and to say it was magical and deeply healing would be a gross understatement. I came to see her during a very traumatic time where my body had completely frozen. My nervous system was shot. Things like going to the toilet were all messed up to the point where I couldn’t even go for a wee for hours on end no matter how much fluids I drank. I was so deeply frightened of what I was experiencing within my body and had no idea how to help myself come back. I was frightened even of trusting anyone with my experience because it was so foreign to me and I thought everything I was and wasn’t feeling sounded so obscene. I shared my story in detail with Ffion and she immediately put me at ease. She recognised what was going on and how the chain of events that had brought me into this state impacted my mind and body so much that all of me had gone into a state of shock and survival mode. Things had shut down. She took such good care of me throughout the whole treatment, checked in with me to see how I was doing and explained everything in detail as to what she would like to do. By the end of one session I actually needed to wee! This sounds hilarious, but this was SO huge for me as I hadn’t been able to go like 8-10hours or more for weeks! I couldn’t believe it. And sensations started to thaw and come back that had been totally muted/ numb too that same day and days following. I will forever be so grateful to Ffion and all she’s done for me. She’s truly a special, gifted woman and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who has been disconnected from their body in anyway. And even if they’re not!! Thank you so much Ffion.   - April -

Marie Sheridan Somatic Experiencing at The Dublin Wellbeing Centre, Dublin 2Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing is a body-based therapy for the treatment of trauma.  Trauma resides in the body as trapped energy, which may have become fixed when the body was over-whelmed.  The gentle release of this energy allows the trauma to be released gradually in a controlled manner without the need for the person having to re-experience the original trauma. 

This is a scientifically proven technique, which is suitable for helping many types of trauma including those traumas where the person may have no implicit memory of the trauma.  Developed by Dr Peter Levine, who discovered that animals in the wild whose lives are routinely threatened by predators are not traumatised compared to humans where the natural release of energy from trauma can be interrupted by social and/or cultural influences although the process is similar.  Somatic experiencing allows the person to tune into this natural process.
