I would recommend

5 50 Acupuncturist Consultation • Paid: €55

I am 60 years old and have suffered from Sinus problems for a long time. I went to different doctors with lots of medicine but no improvement I went to Dave through a friend's recommendation to his clinic "DAN-TIEN COMPLEMENTARY HEALTH CLINIC" who believes in treating the whole body mind and spirit. So acupuncture was for me My sinus problem has much improved only after 2 sessions and my general health is great. I feel like my life is back on track again. With my renewed energy and less stress my sleeping is better then ever. I would recommend going to Dave as he is very kind and with his self assured manner I felt very comfortable. I would say having gone for Acupuncture before that Dave is one of the finest in this field. I feel very thankful to him and would recommend acupuncture by him, as I truly believe it can help many people as it has done for me. Thanks again Dave!

The results were almost immediate

5 50 Acupuncturist Consultation

I've been a professional dancer/choreographer for 20+ years and in my time, have had more than my share of physical pain due to injuries and stress related to my profession (muscle strain, sciatica, sprains, etc). During the course of my career, I've consulted a huge variety of health practitioners (both conventional and complimentary) but most of the treatments have worked only for the short, not long term. Before going to Dan Tien and being treated with abdominal acupuncture, I'd tried acupuncture before yet am a little afraid of needles so my fear naturally got in the way of any successful treatment! To be honest, I'd never heard of abdominal acupuncture before but was willing to try it in order to heal my long term, chronic back pain due to an old injury. The results were almost immediate and with a few treatments, I was finally free of the pain that had plagued me for many years! The abdominal acupuncture was gentle and painless in comparison to other acupuncture techniques I've tried. This, along with Dave's skilled and genial manner put me at ease and made the treatment a relaxing and calm experience. I've since been back to Dan Tien several times for other injuries, illnesses and general health maintenance. Whenever I walk into the clinic, I'm confident that I'll be looked after by a proficient and caring health practitioner. Thanks Dave!
