Our beauty therapy group launched their first pop up clinic on 26th June 2017, the first of many.
All therapists are now fully qualified massage therapists and as part of their work experience module the pop up clinic was established.
On the day close to 20 clients booked in for treatments and as such the day was a huge success.
The girls are now working towards becoming qualified in waxing, facials, and manicures and Eden Therapy will open again in the near future.
Some of the reviews on the day were:
First time to have a massage and it will not be my last. Really enjoyed the experience, very impressed by the professionalism of all involved. Would be back again if it were an option. Kevin
Christina had a very good touch, just a pleasant pressure. Well done on the day. Mary

Edenderry Youth Café: Don’t Let Yourself Rot from the Inside Out
The XHale is part of the Irish Cancer Society's fight against smoking. The Society says: "Over 350 young people from 40 youth and community groups will today showcase a huge range of short films based on anti-tobacco messages in the Odeon Cinema in The Point Village, Dublin. The groups are travelling to the event from all over Ireland and have written, directed and starred in their own films. They have worked hard to promote the smoke free messages in their films through screenings, poster campaigns and awareness raising events in their communities. Their films have received an impressive 20,000 views on YouTube so far."
