Howth Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture originated in China more than 3000 years ago is a complex medical system that is used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well being.

Acupuncture Howth
  • It involves the insertion of extremely fine pre-sterilised needles at predetermined points on the body’s surface to restore health on a physical, psychological and emotional level.
  • Acupuncture can be used alone or combined with other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
  • In TCM the human body is seen as an energy system. The Chinese call this vital system Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) The Qi flows along specific pathways (Meridians) in the body.
  • The severity of the illness and the location of the illness will depend on where and how the flow of Qi has been affected. Acupuncture can directly balance the flow of Qi in order to restore health.
  • The World Health Organisation recognises Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a viable means of treatment for a wide range of conditions.

After suffering with a chronic illness for nearly two years I was in despair of ever feeling better, thankfully with Gerry's help I have been able to regain my strength and energy and to feel like I have my life back. From the outset I was treated with the utmost kindness and it was evident that the patient's welfare was the main priority. I have recommended Gerry to my friends and family and they are all aware of how he was been a huge factor in my recovery. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

My mother who is 91 has been attending Gerry for an number of years with different ailments. She always comes away from a treatment with great relief. Her main problem has been knee pain and at times we thought she would have difficulty walking again but after a couple of sessions with Gerry she is back walking again. If we have an emergency Gerry will always fit her into his schedule. We cannot recommend Gerry highly enough.
