I, Bairbre, Ac. Licentiate. Ac. C. Ac (Nanjing) (M.A.F.P.A) am a licensed Acupuncturist who initially trained for 3 years in the Professional Practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland, training under the Foundation’s many distinguished doctors including Dr Lao Jin Huide of Lincoln University in my final year of training.
Having qualified as an Acupuncturist, I travelled to China and undertook postgraduate training at Nanjing University’s International Acupuncture Training Centre at the TCM hospital of Jian Su Province, training under the hospital director, Dr Gu Zhaojun and Dr Qiao Wenlei of Nanjing University.
As a registered member of the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association, I am strictly regulated and patients can be assured of receiving professional, ethical treatment.
All treatments are covered by the following health insurers: Hibernian Health, ETCMA, VHI Healthcare, HFS Healthplus and Quinn Healthcare.
My approach to Acupuncture is purely holistic, treating each individual according to specific symptoms unique to them. Through the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I focus on promoting health, preventing illness, and treating health challenges through natural alternatives that compliment Western Medicine treatments.
I practice general Acupuncture but chose to specialize in Facial Rejuvenation/Cosmetic Acupuncture, which is based on the time-tested principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a positive, holistic alternative which is somewhat of new phenomenon, but in fact goes back thousands of years and can enhance not only your physical appearance but also your overall health, giving you a glow that radiates from deep within.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an excellent alternative approach to facelifts/Treatment for lines and wrinkles without surgery and injection. Acupuncture is far less expensive, more natural, non-invasive and safer than plastic surgery or Treatment for lines and wrinkles injections and has no side effects, toxicity, inflammation, or recovery time.
