    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.

    Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association

    On the 23rd and 24th of April, Siobhán and Sandro will be attending the AFPA‘s AGM and Conference in Maynooth, Co. Kildare. Sandro has a strong involvement with the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association, as Head of Communications and Chair of the Membership Committee.

    Lorne Brown with Sandro Graca

    Deirdre Murphy (Chairperson AFPA), Dr Lorne Brown, Sandro Graca, and Arya Nielsen, PhD at the British Acupuncture Council’s Conference September 2015

    On April 25th, Siobhán and Sandro are travelling to Vancouver, Canada to attend the Integrative Fertility Symposium. It is an immense privilege for our clinicians to be invited to be present at this great event organised by Dr Lorne Brown of ProD Seminars, Medigogy, AcuBalance, and many other projects…

    This year’s Symposium will be held in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is geared towards Chinese medicine practitioners who have an interest in treating reproductive health issues using an integrative approach.

    The IFS is open to all healthcare providers with an interest in treating reproductive health issues. There will be concurrent sessions Thursday to Sunday by TCM Experts, Naturopaths, Functional Medicine Specialists and Reproductive Endocrinologists & Urologists on how to optimize fertility naturally, support IVF, and improve live birth outcomes.

    There will be panel discussions with integrative experts from Chinese medicine, naturopathy, functional medicine, and allopathic medicine plus opportunities to network and collaborate at the Symposium.

    Our clinics will be closed during the time Sandro and Siobhán are at the IFS.


    TCM Kongress 2016, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany

    Siobhán will be back in clinic May 4th but Sandro will be heading from Vancouver to Rothenburg to be present at the 47th TCM Kongress as part of his work with the AFPA, alongside other top-class international specialists where lectures, presentations and workshops will take place daily between the May 3rd – 7th.

    This year’s main theme is: Individual Medicine: Endocrinology, Gender Medicine, Zhang Zhong Jing: Pioneer of Chinese Medicine and the extensive list of speakers include Matthew Bauer, Stephen Birch, Richard Blackwell, Lilian Pearl Bridges, Charles Buck, Peter Deadman, Marian Nielsen Joos, Andrew Nugent-Head, Julian Scott, and many, many more!


    Donaghmede, Maynooth and Trim clinics will be back to normal hours from May 10th.

    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.
