Clare McSharry

My name is Clare McSharry and I’d like to welcome you to The Acupuncture Zone.

I am very excited to offer you a holistic approach to your health; one that perfectly complements your doctor’s treatment. If you are looking for a complementary health clinic in Dublin or Sligo, or have never tried acupuncture before, this is the perfect time to visit The Acupuncture Zone in Park West Pointe, Dublin 12.

My clinic is an oasis of calm just a few steps away from the hustle and bustle of life outside.
Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for many ailments. Please see the ‘Conditions Treated’ tab for details of the conditions, Acupuncture treats. However you do not have to be feeling ill before you make an appointment. Acupuncture can simply be an intensely relaxing treat!

Apart from acupuncture treatments in Park West, I also do home visits in Dublin and Sligo. Please contact me for more details.

Background

My background is in IT. It may seem a strange career change to go from IT to acupuncture. I suppose it is! The major upside of my background is that I fully understand the real issues and problems facing the ordinary person in the ‘real’ world. I came into acupuncture with a knowledge of the issues and a desire to help people with the day to day problems they face. I hope the logic of my computing background, the natural empathy I possess and my fresh approach to training in acupuncture will lead me to help you find your solution to your problem.

Training

I trained in The Lansdowne School of Acupuncture under the excellent tutelage of Dr. Vincent Carroll. I graduated with a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Certificate in Clinical medicine.
I have done additional training in Auricular acupuncture and Cosmetic acupuncture. More details are in those sections.
