"Geraldine did for me what 2 surgeries and thousands of pills couldn’t do"
5 50Reviewed 06 Apr 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: TMJ - Temporomandibular Joint Treatment
I suffer with TMJ, Temporomandibular joint syndrome in my jaw.

I experienced daily pain, horrific ear aches in both ears and considerable pain in my jaw from chewing food and talking. My quality of life was severely altered with this constant pain, I couldn't be in noisy places, I was constantly in bad form, until I met Geraldine.

Geraldine did for me what 2 surgeries and thousands of pills couldn’t do.

My TMJ is completely under control, with no painkillers, no pain and I have my life back!!

Geraldine is extremely knowledgeable and researched about my condition in-depth.

She listens and supports and understands pain and in my case, she really has changed my life and my families. Thank you Geraldine.

"Didn't even notice the needles were there"
5 50Reviewed 13 Jan 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
Found treatment quite relaxing and beneficial. I was apprehensive at first about the needles but I had no need to be. I barely felt them being inserted and didn't even notice where they were. Also the cd she played during the treatment was very helpful for me.

Geraldine is a very understanding and compassionate person who is excellent at her work. She shows concern for her patients and understands a lot of life's issues. The clinic itself is very homely and welcoming.

"I could not recommend this clinic highly enough"

Acupuncture for pms, stress, sinusitus and stomache issues

I have attended Geraldine's practice for a number of years and find her care makes a big difference to my personal health. The treatment has helped me with hormonal issues including chronic pain and pms. It has helped with sleep issues and also stabilised mood. It is amazing to go into a treatment with Geraldine, feeling anxious, stressed and in pain and to see her acupuncture work its magic in a far more holistic way than the use of other drugs. Geraldine runs a thorough and professional clinic but it is her kind, friendly, caring and also practical manner that makes each visit a pleasure. I could not recommend this clinic highly enough.

"I haven't had any problems with either of them since"
5 50Reviewed 02 Dec 2013 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Acupuncture Treatment
I have suffered from hay fever for the last 15 years and the only thing that ever relieved it before now was a steroid injection during the springtime. However, my GP advised me that getting this steroid injection every year could lead to problems with my bone marrow in later life so I just suffered in silence every summer. I have also had an on/off snoring problem (for my wife!) for a number of years I saw Geraldine's advertisement in a local paper in Kilkenny and decided to see if she could help. I had 2 sessions which included acupuncture and Geraldine gave me some Chinese herbal medicine to take at home. The herbal medicine is not tasty by the way! After about 4 or 5 days I began to notice a major reduction in the hay fever and snoring. I haven't had any problems with either of them since. I'm expecting to have to go back to Geraldine next summer when hay fever season begins but if it works again happy days.

Treatment Received: Acupuncturist Consultation
I was really pleased with my treatment.It really helped my morning sickness.On my previous two pregnancies( when I hadn't tried acupuncture) I vomited nearly every morning and on bad days three to six times throughout the day.On this pregnancy I've rarely been sick and the actual feeling of nausea has been considerably more manageable.I'd recommend that anyone whose suffering from morning sickness try it.I'm delighted I did.

Acupuncture for morning sickness

I was suffered from terrible morning sickness, I went to Geraldine in the hope that it might help my sickness. I had it on my previous pregnancy also, I found the session it self very relaxing. After the treatment, Geraldine also placed little acupuncture press needles on certain points that I could press myself in between treatments. They were like tiny plasters. Almost straight away I stop being sick, the nausea persisted, but the press tacks used to really help me when the nausea was bad. The acupuncture made my experience with morning sickness manageable on this pregnancy and I would highly recommend Geraldine.

Fertility Acupuncture

In a review published in the December issue of the journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine, women receiving Chinese herbal medicine treatments were twice as likely to get pregnant within a four-month period than those receiving conventional Western medical fertility drug treatment or IVF. The findings also suggested that the quality of the menstrual cycle - a key component in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis -- appears to be crucial to the successful treatment of female infertility. Infertility is generally defined as an inability to conceive after a year or more of regular sexual activity without using contraceptives.
