Service Description

I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine while I was studying Medicine in Dublin. I personally experienced the benefits of this treatment  when I suffered with eczema and for IVF treatments as adjunctive therapy. While training and working as a doctor I felt that I could offer more support to patients if I could incorporate Traditional Acupuncture with Western Medical treatments. I have a passion for Acupuncture and love treating patients and seeing improvements in their overall health with this approach. As it is an holistic approach I also review lifestyle and diet and discuss evidence based changes to lifestyle that can enhance your overall health and wellbeing. As a medical doctor I also value that the evidence based published research has grown in recent years to evidence how acupuncture works in the body. This growth in research has allowed acupuncture to be incorporated into western medical guidelines such as the NICE ( National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines for Migraine. I have a particular interest in treating people with  musculoskeletal pain, chronic pain, mood related disorders and women’s health problems including menopause and menstrual disorders. This is not an exhaustive list and acupuncture treatment is available for a variety of conditions.
