M. F. (33) – neck and shoulder pain, urinary problem18 Jul 2014 Dublin
A few months ago I was suffering with neck and shoulder discomfort. I decided to try acupuncture as a treatment mainly out of curiosity. Cyrille has been a wonderful introduction to the practice; he is obviously an enthusiast and always professional and enjoyable to deal with. The space where the treatments are carried out is pleasant and very conveniently located. My initial sessions were a combination of massage and needle insertion to ease the neck/shoulder pain. Ultimately however I ended up discussing other health issues and these became the focus of the acupuncture therapy. Generally the sessions are enjoyable and relaxing; I always come away de-stressed and feel I can discuss a whole host of health and well-being issues with Cyrille who always gives good advice. Most importantly the treatments have been incredibly effective; particularly in relation to a long running urinary issue that I have had for many years. I would recommend acupuncture to everyone and particularly Cyrille as a practitioner; I hope to continue using it as a treatment for as long as possible.
Lorraine (39) – Congenital Hip Dislocation resulting in Hip and back pain29 Jun 2016 Dublin
Cyrille helped me get mobile again, I was suffering with stiffness in my lower back that was affecting me moving and causing my body to freeze when getting up and down. While visits to the physiotherapist and chiropractor had given me some relief for a few days, the problem kept reoccurring. So I decided to give acupuncture a try. After 2 treatments I was back to being mobile again and by the end of 4 sessions the stiffness was gone and my energy levels were greatly increased.
Cyrille is a very professional and educated me in how my body worked by telling me what he was doing and how that affected my bodys reaction. Have recommended him to both colleagues and friends who were in pain. Thanks Cyrille
Tracey (31) – Interstitial cystitis13 Apr 2014 Dublin
I have been going to acupuncture for over a year. Before I started I was on many different antibiotics, admitted to hospital, and took pain killers everyday. This led to bad depression and anxiety. I decided to try acupuncture and I was amazed by the results. Within weeks I was pain free and learning to live a life again. A one hour session of acupuncture every week really helped me cope with life. I relax so much that I often fall asleep. I have gone from spending months in a hospital bed to being pain free for over a year, no hospital visits, doctors’ visits and no more taking pain killers. I genuinely feel like a new person and it is all down to acupuncture.
Cyrille really takes time to listen to your symptoms and researching what is the best method of acupuncture for you.
People who have a fear of needles should really give this a try, they are not sore, the pins are very small and the treatment is very comfortable. I recommend trying a few sessions before you will see any change. It really does work.
Doug Eisenstark – Cold, cough, tiredness18 May 2015 Venice (California- US)
I live in Southern California and was in Dublin on vacation. Cyrille’s office is right in the middle of town and I took a chance to visit him before I went back home. I have had a lot of acupuncture and Cyrille was as good as any I have had. I had a cough and tiredness for the last week and it was almost totally gone the next day.
Cyrille has studied with some excellent teachers in China and it was clear that he had learned well.
If you are traveling in Dublin (or live there!) I would really recommend that you see him. It is very convenient location (next to Trinity College). The treatment took about an hour and a half although he did some extra “moxibustion” for my cold. His price for the treatment was very reasonable.
Ania (29) – Skin Rash20 Oct 2015
I came to Cyrille with an itchy skin rash which was spreading on my body and face. I was keen to try acupuncture as I wanted to avoid anti-histamines and steroid creams my GP would commonly prescribe. I was positively surprised how much time Cyrille had spent on the consultation, meticulously gathering and recording information, checking my pulse, skin, tongue and asking many questions. When it came to the treatment, Cyrille explained everything he was doing step by step and was very reassuring and empathetic. I returned a few more times to Cyrille and could experience the benefits of acupuncture. My rash has cleared within days and upon leaving the clinic I always felt relaxed, my mind focused and body filled with new energy. I’d recommend Cyrille to anyone who’s seeking an alternative, holistic treatement for healing and for relaxation.

N.L (34) – Adverse Reaction to Antidepressants14 Aug 2015 Dublin
The treatment was very well thought out, personalised and tailored to the individual problem. I had a very unusual issue caused by an adverse reaction to antidepressants. My nervous system was completely messed up by medication side effects. Cyrille found ways to ease the problem and my experience was very good. I learned that with acupuncture, healing can be achieved in ways that our western medicine can’t achieve, all without side effects.
The treatment managed to give me quite significant relief from the symptoms. I would like to thank Cyrille for helping me thorough a tricky health problem.
I would really encourage you, with any kind of stress related issues, to go to see Cyrille. GPs may offer medications for stress and present them as safe. In my case these medications had very severe side effects. I was basically disabled for months. Later I learned that these side effects are not uncommon at all, that many patients suffer from them and that doctors are unfortunately not always informed about these issues. I believe that acupuncture is definitely the better choice to start with.
D.D. (22) – Lower Back Pain12 May 2015 Dublin
I had a lower back injury due to a fall. I was traveling to the west coast of the USA and therefore needed a speedy recovery. I had physiotherapy the week before and I did not feel it was helping to the extent that I needed, which is when I made an appointment for acupuncture.
I enjoyed hearing about what Cyrille discovered through the consultation. For example, that certain lines in my body were weak, which he would then also target in his treatment. Cyrille also speaks throughout the treatment which is comforting. You never need to worry about what is being done or what is going to happen if you are experiencing acupuncture for the first time. On top of the acupuncture, I enjoyed the massage the most. I suffer from tension migraines occasionally caused by tension in my shoulders and neck. The massage helped release this.
It was a very good experience. I did two sessions in one week and felt approximately 70% percent better from where I started that week. Therefore, I would recommend Cyrille and I have recommended him to my work colleagues.
Thank you to Cyrille for the wonderful treatments. Though my back is better now, I would not hesitate to come back should there be any other ailment I face in the future (though hopefully there are none! ☺)
R. B. (33) – Multiple Sclerosis2 Oct 2011 Dublin 16
I have been seeing Cyrille for 15 sessions. Definitely will be coming back. This was my second time having acupuncture and I can say he tries to help. He puts a lot of effort in understanding the problem and tries to find the best way of treatment, rather than giving countless useless sessions, trying to scam you out of money (previous experience). There was this voice inside me saying – he is honest, he wants you to feel better. Always asks about improvement. Though I was bad news the first 8 or 10 times: my improvement was short and that is not what Cyrille or I were looking for. As I said – I will be coming back and I recommend him to anyone who will ask me.
Olivia (36) – Stress, anxiety25 Nov 2011 Dublin
Thank you so much for all of your kindness and patience, and I really appreciated that you took so much time to genuinely listen to me and try and help me in every way. I felt so much more relaxed and at ease after the acupuncture. It definitely got me through a very difficult period.
C. G. (34) – Endometriosis5 Mar 2014 Dublin
My overall experience of the acupuncture sessions was overwhelmingly positive. I was diagnosed with Stage IV endometriosis a few years ago and suffer from severe ongoing pain as a result. Following several surgeries, and still having to rely on pain relief, I came to Cyrille on the recommendation of a friend to see if acupuncture would improve my symptoms. During the sessions, he spent considerable time listening and documenting my symptoms and a tailored acupuncture session would follow. I not only noticed a significant improvement in pain levels but began to relax and took simple steps to improve well-being and to complement my general health. Endometriosis can be a very sensitive condition for women. You can sometimes feel judged and frustrated by medical advice which never seems to get to the root of the problem. Cyrille’s approach is open, inclusive and non-judgemental and he works with you to improve your quality of life. It is really empowering to have some control of your condition and to have an active role in your treatment.
My pain has reduced considerably since sessions began. I’m also sleeping very well and am more relaxed. All of these improvements have brought me to a more positive place.
