ABOUT THE PRACTIONER
Continuing 3,000 plus years of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and following in the lineage and footsteps of her late grandfather, Dr. Wu, who successfully treated thousands of patients in his private clinic in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The practitioner was motivated to study Acupuncture following the death of a family member, who suffered long term side effects of taking western medication which led to further complications, eventually causing their body to completely break down. Lina decided that she did not want the same fate for herself, her remaining family or anyone else, and so embarked on a personal mission to help as many people as she can by providing alternative holistic therapies such as Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and Massage Therapy. Acupuncture is recognised as a natural, safe and effective treatment of many health conditions by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Lina is a fully qualified acupuncturist and member of the Association of Registered Complementary Health Therapists in Ireland (ARCHTI), and IMTA (Irish Massage Therapists Ireland) who are professional regulatory bodies in Ireland. She studied at Landsdowne College of Acupuncture and Complimentary Medicine (incorporating Western Medicine} in Dublin, under Dr. Vincent Carroll. Following her graduation, she served an internship at the Hospital of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in Hanoi, Vietnam, Vietnam's leading traditional medicine hospital and is a World Health Organised (WHO) accredited programme.
Lina draws on her 15 years background as a holistic therapist, and her own personal experiences of Mindfulness, Transcendental Meditation (TM) Qi Gong and Reiki.
She is passionate about Acupuncture, loves learning and has continued with her professional development by training in Dr. Tans Balance Method (BM) and is now a certified BM practitioner, as well as studying Abdominal Acupuncture (AA) with Dave Shipsey, and most recently DNA (Distal Needling Accupuncture) and Medical Pulse Diagnosis with Bob Doane, Paediatric Acupuncture (treating children and babies), with Dr. Julian Scott, from the UK, a renowned children's practitioner of over 40 years experience and author of many publicized books on the subject.
"I care about and listen to what your body needs by taking an in depth consultation of your medical case history to determine the root cause, and can advise on the best dietary and life style changes for you to make in order to live the best version of yourself". Generally speaking most clients start to feel better after 5-6 visits, although usually a course of at least 10-12 treatments are needed to see a good improvement, after which maintenance visits of once every 3-4 weeks is recommended to stay balanced and healthy.
I look forward to working with you soon on your journey of self healing and being the best version of yourself. Please do get in touch if you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to have a free consultation.

you touch everything."

CUPPING & MOXIBUSTION
Do you have any physical or emotional pain? Are you feeling stressed out or anxious? having digestive / sleep problems? Do you wake up feeling tired and drained as if you haven't slept at all...or perhaps you are just feeling out of shape? Well LISTEN to your body, it is trying to tell you that something is wrong! Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. When there is stagnation in the body, this can manifest as either pain or some other symptoms and if left untreated can lead to serious disease in the future.
Acupuncture is an ancient holistic therapy that uses very fine acupuncture needles to specific acupuncture points along the body to stimulate neural transmitters in the brain, triggering the release of the body's own pain-relievers (called endorphins or 'feel-good' chemicals). It also affects the production of other chemicals in the body which control our hormones, blood sugar, blood pressure etc.
It encourages the free-flow of blood in the affected area, which brings rich nutrients to the area to encourage natural healing and helps reduce pain instantly (bringing a 30-50% reduction in pain from the first treatment alone!).
Research indicates that acupuncture can help boost the body's immune system and affects the sympathetic nervous system and endocrine system. Further information can be found at 'The Acupuncture Council of Ireland's (ACI) website.
Acupuncture can be safely administered to both adults and children alike. Treating imbalances early on in childhood can change the person's life forever.

Cupping involves placing cups on the skin and using either heat or a vacuum pump to create suction. This causes blood to flow to the area which promotes healing, reduces pain, flushes out toxins, relaxes tight muscles and even improves the skins respiration. Great if you hold tension in the upper back or before or after a workout. Cupping is used by professional athletes all over the world to improve athletic performance. When coupled with acupuncture, or even as a stand alone therapy, ensures maximum benefit.
Moxibustion treatment involves burning 'Moxa' over the area of injury or discomfort. Moxa uses the herb Artemesia (Mugwort), an aromatic plant that is rich in essential oils, fats, enzymes and vitamins. The heat generated by burning the Moxa, penetrates deeply into the body and promotes circulation of blood, which is essential for healing, and a reduction of pain. This helps to restore balance and promotes a sense of well-being. This treatment can be used with Acupuncture Needles or on its own.

Relaxing Swedish, Lomi Lomi or Deep Tissue massage to alleviate muscle tension and promote relaxation and overall sense of well being.
Research has shown that touch is a biological and psychological need deeply embedded in all human beings. From the time we are born, babies cling to touch their mother's skin...it is an automatic reaction driven by our need for touch. Without this human touch, we suffer biologically, emotionally and psychologically...leading to feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.
There has never been a greater need for massage therapy than now...massage provides the human touch needed, something that machines and computers can never provide.
Other health benefits include soothing the nervous system to reduce anxiety, boosting the IMMUNE SYSTEM to keep us healthy, breaking down poisonous TOXINS in the body and stimulating the lymphatic drainage system to get rid of the toxins as well as alleviating muscle tension and stiffness. It is never too late to start looking after your health and making it a part of your regular routine. To stay healthy, one treatment every two weeks is recommended.
