The concept of The Dancing Soul began when two local psychotherapists: Julie Parmenter and Martina Breen came together with a common dream of opening up a multi disciplinary therapy centre in Athlone.
The centre opened in in October 2011 in Pearse Street, Athlone with 4 Therapy rooms and a retail space for holistic products. In 2013, they expanded the centre to a 3,000 sq ft centre in Monksland hosting 6 therapy rooms and 2 groups spaces. The Dancing Soul has moved from strength to strength and now is home to over 20 practitioners offering a wide range of services to the clientele of Athlone and it’s environs.
The Dancing Soul is dedicated to the enhancement of health and well-being on a body, mind and Spiritual Level. We have a mission of providing a beautiful, restful environment for healing therapies and training work-shops to be facilitated.
