My name is Caoimhe Mc Glinchey and  I started studying Acupuncture in 1995 after completing my Science degree in NUI Maynooth Ireland. I graduated from the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland in 1998 and spent over 3 months studying in hospitals and the University of TCM, Nanjing China to complete my licentiate.

I now run two busy clinics in Dundrum and Rathcoole Dublin. My goal is to help you achieve optimum health and wellness. Through working with my patients I have seen the impressive results that acupuncture and Chinese medicine can have. I am grateful to be able to share the benefit of my extensive education with you. In the clinic we treat a wide variety of conditions from Pain issues, IBS Insomnia to name but a few.

My Special  interests lie in Womens Health and Paediatrics. My initial interest in Gynaecology began in 1989 when I did a work placement the the Coombe Maternity Hospital Dublin and so when I embarked on my Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Career it came as no surprise that I was drawn to women’s and children’s health.  I am an experienced fertility, gynaecological and obstetric Acupuncturist and Herbalist specialising in complex  disorders such as unexplained infertility, recurrent miscarriage,  Endometriosis and other inflammatory conditions. I treat all stages of women’s wellness, from enhancing fertility, assisting IVF/ ICSI cycles, to pregnancy care, post natal care and even menopause. Through my own fertility issues I had in conceiving my second child I have gained an in depth knowledge of fertility issues and IVF clinics and I feel this has benefited me as a practitioner helping those undergoing fertility issues.

Since becoming a mother myself over 8 years ago I was naturally curious to see first-hand how Chinese Medicine could help my own daughter, many couples that had attended the clinic had been successful in becoming parents and started asking about Chinese medicine helping their babies too – I have a Children’s clinic Acuhealkids on specific days at the clinic

Over the last 20 years I have continued to study and have completed Courses/ Diplomas in Chinese Patent Herbal Medicine, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage). In 2012 I completed a year long post graduate diploma in Paediatric Acupuncture under renowned paediatric teacher Julian Scott and have developed a gentle needle technique for babies and children. As part of my continuing professional development I have been to China over 10 times and return regularly to complete further study in both Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. I have studied under many consultants in China especially in the gynaecology and paediatric area. I specifically spent time in the reproductive centre in the Biggest TCM hospital in Nanjing China. I have undertaken reproductive training with experts Jane Lyttleton, Jani White, Trevor Wing to name but a few. I have completed her obstetric training under guidance from Sarah Budd and Debra Betts. I have studied under Julian Scott, Elisa Rossi and Alex Tiberi in Children Pediatric Medicine. I am a registered member of AFPA and IRCHM which have strict codes of ethics and practice.

I was also privileged to teach  Acupuncture for over 10 years in acupuncture point location modules, herbal modules and assisted student clinics at the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland. Whilst a faculty member for AFI I travelled to Nanjing University China to monitor and supervise graduates from the AFI programme from 1998 - 2008. I am founding member of the Ztia West network and have taught on this training programme. I am passionate about Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and have a particular interest in increasing recognition for the practice of Acupuncture and Herbalism through regulation from the government both in Ireland and Europe. I have been an active member of my professional bodies and have sat on board level for over 15 years. I am a former Chairperson and secretary of my acupuncture register AFPA. I have recently finished my term of office as  the Hon Secretary of the ETCMA an organisation representing over 12,000 acupuncturists throughout Europe after a 6 year duration.

Your unique health care situation is of the utmost importance to me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can benefit you. Together we can work toward achieving your health and wellness goals.
