I have been practicing Acupuncture since 2012, I have added several modalities to my skill set over the years, now I am branching out into Aromatherapy in hopes of enriching the work I provide for my clients. I now feel that through this beautiful art I am assisting them on many subtle levels during a session in addition to the acupuncture work itself. Aromatherapy has long been an interest of mine and now I am loving absorbing it into my life and using it to help others.
As a member of the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association (AFPA), Ireland’s representative of the prestigious international standards organisation, I am bound by a strict code of ethics and best practice.
