What is acupuncture and how does it work?

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is the world’s largest drug free healthcare therapy. It is a medical system used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve overall health. Acupuncture has proved its effectiveness (dates back thousands of years); long dismissed as quackery by the medical establishment it is finally becoming respectable in Ireland. Acupuncture uses specific points on the body to improve circulation, reduce pain and improve health. Pain and disease is the manifestation of blockage in the circulation and acupuncture is meant to break up that blockage. It involves the insertion of extremely fine pre­sterilised needles at predetermined points on the body.

As a qualified acupuncturist, Victor also sees patients not only for physical problems, but also emotional and general health problems.


Acupuncture can be of great help for problems with back and neck pain, frozen shoulders, digestive disorders, addictions and immune functions.

Victor himself is a specialist in helping with stress, depression and anxiety.

“It can be of benefit for fertility problems in both men and women and is often used alongside GP or hospital treatments”.

Victor also sees many pregnant women to help with the aches, pains and strains pregnancy can bring.
