Meet Tissy


My name is Tissy Guillou. I come from Brittany in France but grew up in Paris. I arrived in Ireland in 1996 and fell in love with Connemara, especially Spiddal…

I am a qualified Shiatsu Practitioner, Massage Therapist and Beautician specialised in Skincare.

Shiatsu has deeply changed my life… It’s a wonderful nurturing therapy aiming at balancing the energy flow in our body, to bring balance physically and emotionally.  I use shiatsu in most of my treatments, I just can’t do without it!

My very first experience of Massage was when I learnt Baby Massage with my daughter Océane (which I now teach to new parents).  How amazing to get to know each other through loving touch (10 years later, she still loves it!).  At the time, I was a Tour Guide but knew that I wouldn’t be able to continue that career, especially when my second daughter Marine was born.  So following my heart, I trained as a Doula (Professional Labour Assistant) in 2006 with Tracy Donegan and Penny Simkin, which opened a whole new chapter of my life: I was going to “Nurture women through pregnancy, birth and beyond“…  My Doula training was so interesting and gave me the desire to work with women antenatally with massage, so I went onto training with Suzanne Yates (Wellmother UK) and specialised in Pregnancy & Post-Natal Massage.  As part of my keen interest in birth preparation, I now also teach acupressure for labour and how to use the birthing ball.

In 2012, I opened my Clinic in Spiddal after working from Liosban in Galway.  My dream of being based in my lovely Spiddal was coming true 😉

In 2013 then, I qualified in Beauty Therapy to fulfill my desire to Nurture “from inside out”. I truly believe that feeling beautiful contributes to every woman’s wellbeing…  I specialise in Natural Skincare, a therapy that I love using Natural & Organic products that I love!  “Nature doesn’t need chemicals to be beautiful…why would you?”

Passionate by my work, my desire is to always offer the highest quality of service to my clients, constantly improving my skills through training and experience.
