Trish Conneely Lic.Ac. C.Ac.(Nanjing) MAFPA
TCMTrish trained with The Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland for three years, and travelled to China for further clinical training at the Nanjing University Second Affiliated Hospital. Here at Dr Gu Zhaojun's busy clinic, she gained valuable experience in treating the after effects of stroke, chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, bells palsy, shingles, and digestive complaints. She has taken additional courses in Acupuncture for Women's Health with Giovanni Maciocia, in Men's Urogenital, Sexual and Reproductive Health with Jani White, and in Pregnancy and Fertility with Deborah Betts.
Classical AcupunctureClassical Acupuncture has it's origins in the classical texts of chinese medicine. Most of these texts were written between the the 6th century. While the Primary Channels of acupuncture are used in all acupuncture systems, the use of the Complement Channels as taught in the classical texts is a powerful resource with which a practitioner can treat both physical and mental illness, as well as supporting the growth and personal development of the individual. Trish has attended seminars focusing on The Spleen and Stomach Channels and The Bladder Channel with Dr Jeffrey Yuen, Daoist Master. She has studied the Art of Pulse Taking, The treatment of the 8 Extra Channels, and the treatment of The Luo Vessels with Ann-Cecil Sterman, Director of the Classical Wellness Centre in Manhattan, and long-time student of Dr Jeffrey Yuen. These channels are particularly useful in the treatment of long-term illnesses, psychological problems, trauma, fertility and gynaecological treatment and conditions which take a long time to respond to Primary Channel Treatment.
Dr Tan's Balance Method'Stand a pole in the sun and you immediately see it's shadow' was a saying Dr Richard Tan used to illustrate the fact that the effect of acupuncture treatment should be immediate. Sadly, Dr Tan passed away in November 2015, leaving as his legacy an acupuncture system which produces remarkable results. Dr Tan combined his engineering background with his lifelong study of the Chinese Bagua and I Ching to design his unique style of acupuncture which is still taught throughout the world. The points treated are distant from but related to the sick or injured acupuncture channel. Most of the points used are located on the arms and legs so there is no need to undress. Patients know that this method is working because their pain starts to ease as soon as the needes are inserted. Trish was lucky enough to study with Dr Tan during his last visit to Dublin in June 2015, and uses his Balance Method to treat all kinds of illness and pain.
