Native Irish and Ancient Indian Ayurveda Medical Systems.
Many people in the west now have a strong sense of the limitations of western allopathic medicine. This is not in any way to deny its great strength and advancements in treating serious medical emergencies and many prescribed conditions. However, we believe that most of the common human ailments and many chronic physical conditions can be dealt with more effectively, efficiently and with far less cost to society under the Roscore/Anú model.
Roscore Clinic promotes integrative medicine, and where appropriate, referral to and collaboration with specialist areas.
Roscore Clinic wishes to create an alternative primary health care model which is people based and autonomous.
Roscore Clinic uses an approach that gives equal emphasis to prevention, early intervention and to treatment.
Roscore Clinic uses integrative medicine based on the ancient proven native Irish and ancient Indian Ayurveda medical systems, the practice of mindfulness and meditation, and the best of contemporary western medicine.
Roscore Clinic passionately believes in the innate wisdom of the person to gain their own optimum level of health and wellness given the right conditions and knowledge.
We provide people with proven knowledge, support and guidance to make healthy lifestyle choices in the areas of nutrition, medical care, emotional and psychological wellbeing.
Roscore Clinic/Anú aspires to support people to create a life worth living and to contribute to sustainable healthier communities and environment using Native Irish and Ancient Indian Ayurveda medical systems.
At the heart of Roscore Clinic is Medical Herbalist Emmett Walsh.
Emmett started his medical herbalist training at the School of Herbal Medicine in Surrey in 1991 and completed his studies at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine with a University of Wales accreditation Post Graduate Diploma in 2002 and an MSc in Herbal Medicine, specialising in cancer treatment.
Prior to this, Emmett did an Animal Science Degree in UCD in 1976 and an MSc in Animal Nutrition in 1977 which led Emmett entering Herbal Medicine studies in later years.
Emmett’s medical training has equipped him to be a safe practitioner using the tried and trusted principles of western herbal medicine either alone, or with Ayurvedic treatment or with conventional medicine. Emmett has trained in pathology, clinical examination, differential diagnosis, red flag emergency signs, medical data interpretation and herb, drug interaction and general medicine.
A deep interest in Irish culture and its civilisation has led Emmett to investigating the medical practices of Gaelic society. In his study, he has recognised a close relationship between the early Irish medical systems and the medical system of India.
Emmett travelled to India in 2008 to study the Ayurvedic medical system which is practiced unbroken for over 5,000 years and with its full medical records intact.
While in India, he studied Clinical Panchakarma which is a specialist branch of Ayurvedic medicine.
Emmett Walsh’s passion for natural Ayurveda treatments at Roscore Clinic, brings him to India every year. Emmett travels to India so he can learn and to immerse himself in the soul of Ayurveda. Ayurveda practised in an Indian context involves 21,000 herbs and over half a million traditional recipes. The learning never stops.
Emmett trained under Dr K.K.Harikrishnan, Vaidyagrama Healing Villiage, India.
Dr Harikrishna continues to inspire and mentor Emmett. Roscore Clinic also works very closely with Dr Harikrishna in the treatment of patients.

12 years ago I started out as a beauty therapist and had my own salon for four and a half years. It was here I started to realise and understand the importance and need of my clients to feel well both physically and mentally. This started me on the journey of investigating further into well-being, not just skin deep. It is not just oils or products that are applied to the skin that makes people look and feel well but one also has the need to shine from within.
I realised that it is important what you care for inside as well as what happens on the outside. The power of touch is hugely comforting and healing. I am constantly learning and attending workshops. Whether it herb and food related or workshops on different therapies. I have ITEC qualifications in Holistic Massage and Reflexology. I have also trained in Indian Head massage and Ayurvedic massage. My journey so far has brought me to Roscore Clinic where I am part of a great team that creates a safe and secure environment for patients to thrive in.
Amy Slevin – Ayurveda Physical Therapist, reflexology, Indian head massage, Holistic massage and Reiki (Level 2). Amy is a recognised I.T.E.C. teacher of anatomy and Physiology.
I first started out training and working with horses 16 years ago . During those years I received treatments for work related injuries. While working with the horses I did a weekend course on horse massage which got me interested in a more holistic approach to caring. While on a break from working with horses I did an ITEC course in Holistic massage and I fell in love with it.
I then went on to qualify in Indian head massage and Reiki. I could really see and appreciate a more holistic approach to taking care of ourselves. I started working in Roscore Clinic 5 1/2 years ago and became further educated on being aware of our health. While at Roscore Clinic, I trained in Ayurvedic massage and therapies, learning about mind, body and soul. I did mindfulness and an ITEC Reflexology course plus a foundation level teaching course in NUI Galway over the last couple of years. I fully intend to continue my education. I now also teach Anatomy and Physiology for Holistic Massage and Reflexology with Maureen Mahoney at Salann Na Talun, Banagher.
Cristina Gheorghe – CIBTAC and ITEC
My passion for holistic therapies started back in 2010 when I started my studies in the field of complementary medicine. My interest in fragrances, spices. and aromas used as prevention or cure led me to Aromatherapy and Anatomy and Physiology, and from there I have studied Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, Reiki (1 & 2), Swedish Massage, Sports Therapy and Skin and Eye Care.
In 2012 I became a volunteer, offering treatments to cancer survivors and raised funds for the Irish Cancer Society and also First Responder (CPR, CFR) for Birr Community. I have also worked with Birr Rugby team as a Sports Therapist and First Aider and as a Holistic therapist in a Spa.
In 2014 I decided to top up my studies and became a student in AIT, Athlone (Bachelor of Arts in Spa and Wellness Management)
My work in Roscore Clinic started in April 2016 as part of my AIT work experience module. Here I started practising Ayurvedic treatments and have become more knowledgeable and interested in herbs, healthy living, and in Ayurveda, the ‘science of life’ and healing.
