The founders of Ciúnas are all carers themselves as well as professional wellness therapists.
It was through their own experience of coping with the toll that regular care giving brings and with no access to any sort of respite, that they decided to do this for themselves.
Such was its success, they went on to create a centre where others, like themselves, could find and give each other that support.
Ciúnas are now a well established, not for profit, rural centre of excellence and have been successfully running since 2009. We have a team of self-employed therapists that provided over 1500 treatments last year
The Centre is managed and run by volunteers, we have no paid staff.
We have 2 part time receptionists funded by the BAT Community.
OPEN TO ALL
The types of clients we have welcomed has grown and evolved and we now welcome anyone who is in need of some respite and in need of building up their resilience in order to better cope with the every day stresses that modern day life brings.
As a not for profit charity we are very reliant on and welcome donations
