I have attended Deirdre for treatment for a variety of ailments over the years and she has been my life saver on more than one occasion. I first started attending Deirdre for treatment for recurrent chest infections and cough. To my delight protracted courses of antibiotics and steroids are now a thing of the past. As soon as I feel the first sign of cough or infection I go straight to Deirdre and I find things do not develop into what was formerly a major medical event for me. I have also had major spinal surgery in the past. Again acupuncture ensures I do not have to resort to the strong pain medication I would have used in the past and I can now avoid all the attendant negative side effects of such medication. I have a very stressful job and Deirdre’s treatment for stress and the insomnia which flows from it is very powerful. I have attended several acupuncturists over the years and hand on heart I can say Deirdre is the most skilled person I have ever attended. I look forward to treatment and find that I am at my most relaxed when lying on the treatment table. I have recommended her to several friends and know that they are as impressed with Deirdre as I am.
