Hi! I am Staś (pronounced Stash, rhymes with ‘dash’) and I came to Cork in 2002. I’m British-born of Polish extraction and grew up in London immersed in Polish tradition and culture. I speak both Polish and English natively, though admittedly my Polish could do with a bit more practice!
Staś Bernasiński has a natural affinity with bodywork. He holds distinctions in Therapeutic and Advanced Massage from the Natural Healing Centre in Cork, he is a certified sports injury therapist and a qualified Neuromuscular Therapist (NMT). Continuing professional development keeps his skill and knowledge of bodywork current and has taken him to many fascinating seminars, workshops and courses including Advanced Orthopaedic Massage, NeuroKinetic Therapy®, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation and many more. He has a strong interest in chronic pain, especially from trauma (emotional or physical), and the effects of scarring on the mobile body.
