Your Therapist

john2Sanare was founded in 2010 by John Hynes,  Mem. MLD Ireland, IMTA, IRIL and British Lymphology Society.


After graduating in Anatomy & Physiology, Therapuetic Reflexology and Holistic Massage in Ireland, John continued his education and trained in the Dr Vodder method of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD),  Basic & Level I in Cork with Meadbh MacSweeney at  MLD Tuition and continued to complete his extensive training in Levels II & III at the world renown Wittlinger Academie in Austria under the guidance and teachings of Professor Hildegard Wittlinger. John chose the Dr Vodder method of MLD as it is the original technique developed by Dr Emil Vodder in the 1930’s . Dr Vodder therapists are required to be re-certified on a biannual basis to ensure the highest levels of excellence in MLD and lymphoedema management.  John is the only MLD Practitioner registered with Manual Lymph Drainage Ireland Limited (MLD Ireland), The British Lymphology Society (BLS) & the Irish Massage Therapists Association (IMTA) in Co Mayo. To further enhance patient comfort, John has successfully combined Dr Vodder’s Original Method of Advanced Manual Lymph Drainage with Deep Oscillation Therapy, Theraputic Massage and Kineseotaping and is only one of a handful of practitioners in Ireland offering such advanced treatment pathways. Appointments are available in Westport, Co Mayo. Please contact us at Sanare if you would like further information on the therapies and treatments available or would like appointment details.
