About Harmony Acupuncture

The Harmony Clinic specialises in Acupuncture, Nutrition and Intolerance Testing.  Harmony Acupuncture specialises in Fertility, Pain Management, Sports Injuries, Allergies, Cessation of Smoking, Digestive Issues, Gynaecological issues, Stress & Anxiety, Insomnia, Pregnancy Disorders, Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia.

Nutritional Advice is also given which further balances the body, increases energy and a synergy is created that would not be possible with acupuncture or nutrition alone.  

Rachel Barry has trained with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland, and the World Health Organisation (WHO) Training University in Nanjing, China.

While treating patients with Acupuncture, Rachel observed that a lot of her patients had conditions that could not be treated by acupuncture alone, such as Digestive Health Problems, Allergies, Brain Fog, unexplained Pains & Aches, Headaches, Dizziness, Thyroid issues, Chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia. This led her to investigate Nutritional Science further, and she completed an Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Coaching from the Irish Institute of Health & Nutrition in Wicklow in 2013.  Rachel has found that combing Acupuncture and Nutritional science to patient care had increased successful outcomes considerably. 

 Harmony Acupuncture also offers Food Intolerance Testing for either 50, 75. 100 or 150 foods.

Rachel is a registered member of the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association (AFPA) in Ireland and the European Traditional Chinese Medicine Association (ETCMA). She is also a registered member of the Nutritional Therapists of Ireland (NTOI).

"I held a lot of stress in my back and shoulders"
100%Reviewed 10 Feb 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
I suffered a slipped disc in my neck and I was in a lot of pain. The bulging disc was pressing on a nerve and I had pain down my arm.
At Harmony acupuncture it was discovered that I held a lot of stress in my back and shoulders. The treatment I received through acupuncture soon brought much relief to me, both physically and emotionally. I Left the first session feeling light and relaxed. On the next visit I was treated for pain and given advice on how to manage this and make some nutritional changes to my diet. I was soon feeling much better and more able to cope with my condition.

Upon my arrival at Harmony acupuncture I was made to feel relaxed and welcome. The staff were very attentive and caring. My treatment was explained to me and I felt confident that I was in the right place.
The room I was treated in was warm and private and felt relaxed throughout. It was like being on a short break from the stress of everyday life each time I visited. I'd give it 10 out of 10 for value.

Treatment Received: Fertility Acupuncture
Fertility acupuncture. As we are on our last round of IVF and have tried everything else it's amazing all the different things people have tried then we googled acupuncture and the benefits for both mother and baby and decided it was for me.

It was amazing. It was lovely and calm and had a nice warm atmosphere. I am on the fertility roller coaster and this was such a calming experience Rachel was fantastic she called it my spa day to myself...I am so looking forward to the next session would recommend Harmony.....Ciara

"My treatment left me feeling totally relaxed and at ease"

Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
I recently suffered a slipped disc in my neck and was in a lot of pain. I was taking pain killers and waiting to see a neurologist. The treatment I received at harmony soon brought relief to my whole body, plus I felt a lot less stressed. Overall it was a very positive and crucial experience for me.

I decided to try Acupuncture and a friend recommended Harmony Acupuncture in Douglas village Cork. When I first attended I was completely stressed out and in a lot of pain, but soon I was made feel welcome and reassured at the hands of Rachel. My treatment left me feeling totally relaxed and at ease. I felt confident that i was in the hands of someone who knew exactly what treatment I required.
I am happy to recommend this clinic. Following a short course of treatment I am well on the way to recovery and in a lot less pain. :)

I went to Rachel with a stiff neck and sore shoulder. The treatments restored mobility in my neck and eased the pain in my shoulder and as an added benefit, I felt a general sense of calm and relaxation. Rachel was very considerate and intuitive in her approach and I recommend her wholeheartedly.

"my general well being is so improved"
100%Reviewed 23 Mar 2014 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncture Treatment
I am extremely pleased with my course of treatment at this clinic. I was quoted a price, but not until after I was offered the first treatment free as I was so apprehensive about the needles. I needn't have worried, Rachel is a consummate professional. I have Ulcerative Colitis and I was on very strong steroids to keep it under control, but the side effects were very serious. Since having the acupuncture, after a few sessions, my condition is in remission and I am off the steroids. My condition is exacerbated by stress which she also treated me for, I am not going to say it is a miracle, but my general well being is so improved, I feel like I have balance back in my body, Thanks.

Acupuncturist Consultation

We take a detailed account of your current condition,symptoms, your medical history, take note of any medications you may be on.  Then we look at lifestyle and diet and establish how these my be affecting the current situation.  Often we may do a physical examination if the problem is structural such as back problems, shoulder, neck or limb problems.  At this stage a diagnosis will be made and the acupuncture treatment schedule will begin.

 
Auricular Acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture acts by activating the Central Nervous System and the Pituitary Gland.  This in turn can regulate both the stimulating neurochemicals (Adrenalin, Cortisol and THyroxin) and the inhibiting neurochemicals (Endorphinm Melatonin, Oestrogen and Progesterone, Parathyroid Hormone and Serotonin

 
Fertility Acupuncture

Acupuncture increases fertility rates by over 50%.  It works by adjusting the bodies hormones, this in turn will relax the body and only when the body is relaxed will it produce the right amount of sex hormones.  Each session is accumulative, so after every session your body is producing more hormones in the correct balance, thus more chance of conceiving each month.  A course of 12 sessions is recommended to prime the body for conception.
