Sian, Dublin

For over ten years, from my mid-teens, I had a chronic skin problem which appeared all over my body but was particularly aggressive and unpleasant on my hands. Simple things like zipping my own coat or interlinking my fingers could be near impossible, depending on how bad it was at any given time. It was dry, itchy, cracked, painful, irritating, and often embarrassing. I tried everything to cure it, going from one specialist to another. I changed my diet, stopped using particular products, stopped wearing particular types of fabric, took numerous anti-biotics and used various sterile creams. And while the symptoms might disappear for a while, the condition always came back. I eventually figured it was something I could do nothing about and sought to adapt my lifestyle to it.

I visited Classic Five Element Acupuncture initially to manage stress and help with a shoulder injury. To my amazement, after just one session with Declan my stress subsided, the pain in my shoulder eased, and most remarkably of all, the skin problem which had tormented me for more than a decade disappeared entirely, and has not returned. It has completely cleared and I am free to use my hands for work, play and everyday creativity. I even started rock climbing recently, which I never would have imagined being able to do! I have returned for acupuncture time and time again, and have always felt more grounded, present and at ease on leaving. I am very grateful to Declan to have the full use of my hands again. Sian

I have been attending treatment and at the risk of sounding dramatic I would say that it is one of the top life changing experiences of my life. My motivation for commencing treatment stemmed from general physical unease and exhaustion. Many of my friends and family found it strange that I was attending without the presence of any particular ailment or condition. I felt, however, that things ‘just weren’t right’. Thankfully my intuition was right because my experience of treatment has been a far deeper one. Whilst many physical issues have been aided, (indeed some have ceased to exist to such an extent that I have forgotten about them completely!), I value more the emotional and spiritual road that has been opened up for me. It is a fascinating and energizing experience, one of which I continue to feel privileged to receive.
