Burren Wellness Centre

About The Burren Wellness Centre

The Burren Wellness Centre is run by a husband and wife team, Jerry and Helga. Both are extensively trained in the healing arts and have a real passion for meeting people and to make you feel at home.

Jerry lived for a long part of his life in Hawai’i where he got involved with the local healing modalities of Lomi Lomi and Reiki. He also studied traditional Thai Massage in Chiang Mai. After meeting Helga and settling in the Burren he continued to polish his skills by becoming a certified holistic massage therapist.

Helga began her carreer by becoming a Physical Therapist in Germany. After working for a couple of years in a German hospital she decided to move to Ireland and make the Burren her home. For the past 30 years, Helga has studied and taken courses around the globe and extended her skills in different directions. A big addition was her 500 hour Yoga training which began in 2005 with the Nosara Yoga Institute. She also studied traditional Thai massage in Chiang Mai and took some tuition with Kahuna Harry Uhane Jim in Hawai’i.

Together, Jerry and Helga combine their skills to give you the deepest healing experience possible. No matter which modality you choose, you will be expertly guided to meet yourself on a higher level, discover new possibilities for personal growth and yet relax into the timelessness of the present moment.

I have been practising yoga with Helga for many years now. I relax and let go as soon as I enter the fabulous space she has created in her studio. It feels warm and welcoming and Helga is always supportive and encouraging. Helga teaches a range of yoga skills in her classes and I enjoy the core work and Yin yoga best of all. I have learnt a lot about myself practising yoga and the benefits it brings to my life, I would feel unbalanced without it. I love to attend the day retreats where you can meet other like minded Yogis and share an extremely tasty, healthy vegan lunch prepared by Jerry. If I have any aches and pains I book in for a massage with Jerry or Helga. They are professional and personable and I always come away feeling better and more relaxed.


Jerry really straightened me out, literally! When I drove away after a one hour massage, I had to adjust my rear view mirror. I was sitting differently, comfortable and pain free.
