Fi O Meara
Fi O Meara is a Chartered Physiotherapist who qualified with a first class honours degree from Trinity College in 2005. Fi initially specialised in stroke rehabilitation with adults, before moving into Paediatrics. She spent the last 6 years working with children with physical disabilities with Enable Ireland in Wicklow. However having always had an interest in oral and facial development, she became increasingly aware of the impact of mouth-breathing and thumb-sucking on her young clients. And so in March this year she traveled to New York to study with the Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy. She also completed the Buteyko Practitioner Training under the tutelage of Patrick McKeown. Fi is also a qualified craniosacral therapist. Fi currently offers 5 week courses and private sessions from Fermoy Dental Centre in Co Cork.
