Acupuncture treatment
for antenatal, perinatal, and postpartum care

Why are more and more people getting acupuncture treatment?

The short answer is: because it works. And because it works, more and more orthodox / western / scientific medicine clinicians (like GPs, physiotherapists, gynaecologists, nurses, midwifes, etc) are recommending it to their patients.

You must be asking yourself: “but how would these western medical clinicians be ok with their patients getting acupuncture treatments?” Simple: there are no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other biomedicine treatment that the patient(s) might be getting.

Furthermore, acupuncture is recognised by the World Health Organisation. Regulatory bodies in Ireland (AFPA, both Siobhán and Sandro are registered members and Sandro sits on the Executive Committee) and in Europe (ETCMA) ensure that when patients are referred to qualified, registered and insured acupuncturists, they will get the best care possible.

So, the real question is: “why shouldn’t more and more people be getting acupuncture?” – we have established that because it works, it is recognised by the highest authority in medicine (WHO), and therefore western medicine clinicians refer patients to licensed acupuncturists.

The clinicians are both members of the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association and fully trained in the fertility / IVF / ART protocols, gynaecology, endocrinology and obstetrics – therefore recognised and registered with the Acupuncture Fertility Network.

The main focus continues to be on providing expert, professional and affordable medical care to all the patients visiting the clinics.

    Integrative Fertility Symposium 2016 and other important announcements

    Changes to clinic days / hours – important announcements: there are three very important events taking place towards the end of April and beginning of May that will affect the normal running of the acupuncture clinics.

    Siobhán and Sandro will be away from the clinics from April 23rd until May 4th (Siobhán) and May 11th (Sandro) as they will be present at the AFPA’s AGM and Conference in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, the Integrative Fertility Symposium in Vancouver, Canada, and the TCM Kongress in Rothenburg, Germany.

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our patients and we thank you all for your understanding.

    Ultimately, it is in the patients’ best interest that our clinicians stay at the forefront of developments in this medical field and we hope that Siobhán and Sandro continue to be an example for others to follow in the area of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, especially fertility acupuncture.
