Acupuncture successfully treats a wide range of conditions. With assessment, diagnosis and treatment individually based in relation to your overall health, constitution, and presentation of symptoms; Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM, is in a unique position to treat the whole person. Acupuncturists look at the person as a symbiotic system and aim to understand the root of the disease, not only the manifestation. This outlook is especially important as many of us may be diagnosed with the same condition yet the reasons for, and experience of the condition often vary. The conditions I most commonly treat in our Sligo and Strandhill clinics range from fertility concerns, maternal health during pregnancy, pre-birth sessions, fatigue, depression, anxiety, menopausal symptoms, sinus conditions, headaches, muscular-skeletal conditions (and many others).
