I have been a practising complementary therapist for many years. I graduated as a Shiatsu therapist from the British School of Shiatsu-Do in 2004 and also qualified as a massage therapist a few years later. In 2009 I graduated as an acupuncturist from Landsdowne college in Dublin. In 2010 I furthered my training by going to China and completing a clinical internship at the Hangzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I believe that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for a wide range of issues, either alongside conventional medicine or when conventional medicine has had limited success. It can be used to relieve pain, digestive issues, anxiety, depression and insomnia to name but a few.
I have a particular interest in women's heath, fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and the post natal period. I had personal experience of fertility and pregnancy issues, having myself suffered recurrent miscarriages. This led me into detailed research into all aspects of miscarriage and pregnancy. As a result of my research, I used various natural methods, including acupuncture, subsequently giving birth to a beautiful baby girl in August 2013. I feels this gives me great empathy with those who are also struggling with their own fertility and pregnancy issues and am passionate about sharing and helping those who are going through similar experiences.
I have attended various postgraduate courses, including several focusing on pregnancy and fertility. I have studied pregnancy acupuncture with Debra Betts and very recently achieved an Acupuncture diploma in Gynaecology & Obstetrics with Dr Trevor Wing who is a well-known clinician, researcher and lecturer in female health in London.
I am a member of AFPA (Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association) and so all my acupuncture treatments are approved and reimbursable by all healthcare insurance providers.
