About Well-Being-Dublin (Anne Hughes)

Hi, I'm Anne Hughes of Well-Being-Dublin; a highly qualified and experienced, advanced-acupuncturist, Herbalist and Naturopath based in Dublin's premier holistic centre, 'The Dublin Holistic Centre', at 28 South William Street, Dublin 2.

The services I offer include the following:
acupuncture, cupping, auricular acupuncture, moxa, gua sha, herbal medicine, detailed dietary and lifestyle advice, plus individually-tailored techniques for clients to create their own on-going strategy for enhanced health and speedy recovery from presenting symptoms/underlying conditions.

I work with men, women and teenagers, using a comprehensive holistic approach to treat illness and enhance all-round health for a wide variety of health conditions, including but not limited to, the following:

Pain Relief, Insomnia, Anxiety, Depression, low-energy, Addiction, Arthritis,Migraines, Backache, Sports-injuries, Stress-relief, Neck pain, Sinusitis, Asthma, Gastritis, I.B.S. Constipation. Knee-pain, Foot pain and more.

My background degree and masters, prior to becoming a holistic practitioner, are in the fields of psychology and Addiction.

Therefore, health challenges related to psychological-emotional health and dependence of all kinds from smoking to prescription and non-prescription drugs, are areas I'm very experienced in treating, have a keen understanding of and empathy towards. 

I also have a particular interest in pain-relief as my training in Canada was in both Chinese and Japanese acupuncture and the mix of diagnostics and treatment protocols from both is particularly effective to eradicate pain

However, overall I genuinely find it most rewarding to treat as widely as possible.

That's so as to continually enhance my learning and also to offer my services more widely to those who I can treat with the multi-faceted approach of the three holistic modalities, Acupuncture, Herbs and Naturopathy.

After my M.A. (hons) in Addiction studies, a short course in Ear Acupuncture for Detoxification led me to decide to become an Acupuncturist.  (It was a love at first learning, this is "IT" kind of thing !:)

I then gained my Dip. Ac. (hons) after 3 years training in Toronto,Canada, at "The Acupuncture Institute" a 1600 hour full time programme, (an equivalent is not offered in Ireland), and have been in practice now in Ireland as an acupuncturist for over 10 years.

6 years ago I graduated from the College of Naturaopthic Medicine in Dublin, as a herbalist and naturopath and have integrated these wonderful modalities into my Well-Being-Dublin practice from then on.

I'm a fully insured practitioner and a registered member of the regulatory bodies of the A.C.I. (Acupuncture Council of Ireland), The I. R.H. (The Irish Register of Herbalists) and the I.N.A. (The Irish Naturopaths Association).

My acupuncture treatment costs are partly re-imbursable with a variety of health care providers including V.H.I. GioHealth, Irish Life Health to Laya Healthcare.

My work has featured on TV3's Today show, The Ryan Turbity Show, and in various magazines from Woman's Way to Social & Personal magazine, (who referred to me professionally as: "ONE OF THE BEST THERAPISTS I HAVE EVER MET").

Thanks for checking out my page here and feel free to call or e-mail me today for a no-obligation chat about how acupuncture, herbalism or naturopathy could help you.

"You have really boosted my confidence"
5 50Reviewed 08 Dec 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
Hi Anne, I was there a few days ago and met with you. The past days since I left your place I have been feeling really different positively. You have really boosted my confidence and it's quite significant towards people and most importantly I feel so much better and happier. After I had a meeting with you, I went to lunch and had a steak! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it and felt so much energy. So, Thank You! Keep doing the work you do and changing people's lives, God, the divine, the universe, the source or whatever resonates with you will give you more wisdom to sustain you. Hope you are keeping well.
Sorry for the long email but just wanted to tell you this. Stay well and see you again.

Highly recommended.

Hi Lizzie, thanks so much for coming in for your naturopathy consultation and subsequent advice on diet and lifestyle. It was a pleasure to work with you to resolve the specific issues you were in to see me for. (And I'm delighted you went straight out and started into one of the reccomendations of red meat to enhance iron intake:). Your kind words you wrote here are very much appreciated and all the best to you in the future. It will be well deserved !:)

"I felt it was the right place for me"
5 50Reviewed 30 Jun 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
When I arrived in Dublin in 2016, I had been suffering from occasional severe anxiety and depression for several years. After no success with mainstream medicine, I decided it was time to see what naturopathy had to offer. I am very glad that I did. Through her diagnosis and expertise, Anne was able to help me build a holistic regime that gave me the power to reclaim my health and maintain that balance. I felt improvement within the first several weeks and with continued practice of Anne's recommendations, I continue to feel better than I have in a long time!

I had been doing some research about naturopathy in Dublin and Well-Being Dublin popped up in my Facebook feed. I saw some of the posts and reviews and instinctively felt it was the right place for me. Anne is a wonderful practitioner. She is kind, caring, and has great empathy for her clients. I felt very supported through our work together. I highly recommend her!

"I felt relief almost immediately"
5 50Reviewed 23 Jun 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncture Treatment
I work a lot on the computer so I regularly have some fatigue in my hands. Anne was familiar with my problem and had a lot of advice to offer and remedies to provide. In particular she used acupuncture for my hand and also to help generate some total body relaxation for me. It was a lovely experience and quite effective--I felt relief almost immediately and it lasted me months afterward. Anne's service is a really good value, but better than that was how valuable getting to know her a bit has been. She's incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and is very genuine and has a wonderful disposition. The way she treats you is professional yet intimate, like a friend, and that left a lasting impression on me regarding alternative health practices in general and acupuncture in particular.

I sought out Anne because of some personal recommendations about the kind of care she provides. My expectations were deeply exceeded and I'd wholeheartedly recommend Anne and Well Being Dublin to anyone.

"With Anne you are going to find a therapist in which you can really trust"

Acupuncture Treatment

I went to see Anne for few acupuncture treatments and I had the chance to take some herbs from her, too. In both cases the treatments were really helpful, she helps you to feel confident with the therapy. You really feel to be with a therapist who cares about you and her work. I'd like to recommend this therapist even for who is scared from needles and for who is going to try acupuncture for the first time. With Anne you are going to find a therapist in which you can really trust.

Acupuncture and Herbal Treatment

Very pleased with the treatment. I began seeing Anne every two weeks and as I started to feel better the sessions were less frequent. I had been attending doctors for two years with no improvement but after the acupuncture and herbal plan tailored specifically to me, I recovered within a few weeks.

I found sessions with Anne very relaxing and very helpful. I could contact Anne at any time and would always get an email or a phone call back asap. Anne is a very professional and caring person who genuinely tries to do everything to help. I couldn't recommend her highly enough

"Fantastically, and overall I have saved myself a lot of money"
5 50Reviewed 24 Mar 2014 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncture Treatment
Everything was absolutely great, Anne has a great personality and is very open & easygoing - yet she offers a deep insightful view to the causes of the illness that I was suffering with. I can say that the therapy provided definitely helped me to get back to health and I will be coming back in the future if any problems arise again.

Herbs prescribed by her have been working fantastically, and overall I have saved myself a lot of money and health by going to 'traditional' GP.

One more good thing- the price was even lower than stated, as Ann has taken into consideration that I was not working back then. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
