Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest forms of medicine known to mankind. It has been practiced and constantly refined for the last 3,000 years. It is a system of treatment that acknowledges the human body as a complex system of nutrient-carrying vessels that is often capable of healing itself, when the skilful stimulation of specific points is used to re-balance the bodys circulatory environment.
Acupuncture can influence every organ system in the body, every stage of disease, and every emotional or physical condition. Every single person can benefit from Acupuncture, from small illnesses and minor discomforts to chronic diseases and everything in between. Read More…
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic alternative to conventional Western treatments, meaning we take an in-depth look into the mind and body of a person as a whole to trigger the body's natural healing response. Instead of masking symptoms, TCM treats the root of the illness to heal the entire body and prevent future suffering.

As a former teacher, I have first hand knowledge of what chronic tension and stress can do to one’s body and spirit. I was drawn to the fields of Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Manual Therapies such as Therapeutic Bodywork, through a desire to support others through their own health issues both large and small.
Over the past decade I have developed my skills by working with a variety of patients suffering from pain due to injuries, chronic health issues and high levels of stress. My qualifications include Acupuncture, Clinical Medicine, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Bodywork and Manual Lymph Drainage. I have also completed a number of advanced courses in my fields of study, especially in the area of women’s health. I am also one of the few people in Ireland to have studied Medical Pulse Diagnosis under Bob Dohn.
My therapy is an intuitive combination of techniques which leave my patients feeling energized, balanced and pain free. I enjoy providing the perfect, safe space for every patient to unwind and heal. My sessions are not 'one size fits all', and each is tailored to the individual patient’s specific needs. As the patient’s body heals and as their needs change, so will the recommended treatments. I enjoy providing the opportunity to experience the benefits of Acupuncture and TCM and getting every patient back to their optimum self.
Most private health schemes cover acupuncture when performed by a properly qualified and licensed practitioner. I am a registered practitioner with the ACI (Acupuncture Council of Ireland); ACI members are approved by Aviva, VHI, Laya Healthcare and HSA for Out-Patient insurance purposes.
