Mark (33) – Insomnia, anxiety, grief3 Sep 2014 Dublin
I have been suffering with insomnia for around 5 years on and off and decided to try acupuncture as I found any western remedies(tablets) useless and at times even made the situation worse. After I contacted Equilibre, I was given a complete assessment and my first treatment on the following day.
I am now into my third week and have found the treatment amazingly effective. I feel I can describe it as life changing because a chronic inability to sleep eventually starts to control your health and life. I can now feel my situation improving gradually and naturally all the time. I understand that there will be times when my insomnia will come back because it has been part of my life for so long and my treatment is at an early stage but I really feel improvements all the time and I am excited for the future.
The man behind Equilibre is Cyrille Bonnard. I have found Cyrille to be a man who takes a genuine interest in making sure his patients get the full benefit from their sessions and takes a genuine interest in their physical and emotional health. Cyrille monitors patients progress session by session and will advise people on other ways that they could improve their health and quality of life as he has done with me, without being judgemental or non realistic. I have heard a lot of people who felt their therapist(in various fields) was giving them sessions when there would be little or no benefit from them aside from the therapist getting paid more. This is not the case with Equilibre as Cyrille was the one who suggested cutting the weekly sessions from twice to once per week.
In summary I have found the process of acupuncture very effective so far and I know I will continue to do so. I have also found that Cyrille Bonnard from Equilibre is a very competent and interested practitioner who is not just out to take peoples money after a quick session but really wants to see that person get better.

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.
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! ☺)
Owen (64) – pain, depression, anxiety29 Aug 2014 Dublin
Before I started, I was on many different antibiotics, admitted to hospital, and I 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 during treatments. I have gone from spending months in a hospital bed to being pain free for over a year, no hospital visits, doctor’s visits and no more taking pain killers. I genuinely feel like a new person and it is all down to acupuncture.
Michael (53) – Facial rejuvenation, trauma22 Oct 2013 Dublin
I came to see Cyrille for a variety of reasons – recovery for trauma and more vitality and better circulation. The room has a good, relaxed atmosphere and there are good treatment facilities. Overall, my experience was very good. Cyrille showed a very strong level of interest and curiosity about my condition and always focused on the treatment that would maximise healing. He took sufficient time to learn about progress, changes, etc and to factor this into his treatment plan.
The treatments have improved my general health and circulation and I feel more healthy now and I would definitely recommend this treatment for others.
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.
P.H. (41) – Stress and anxiety13 Jan 2015 Dublin 18
I run an investment trading company which can be very stressful at times. Cyrille’s unique methods helped me reduce my stress levels, feel happier & more energetic. He is a great listener & really takes time to understand you. I felt the whole experience very relaxing & you always come away feeling better. I would be happy to recommend Cyrille. Call him today, you’ll be glad you did!

Cyrille is a really kind person. He makes you feel comfortable. I really enjoyed the treatment. I felt really good just after the first two sessions. To be honest I cannot say if there is something to improve. The environment is good and Cyrille is great!

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
