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.
A. T. (30) – Stress1 Dec 2014 Dublin
I wanted to try acupuncture to relieve stress and anxiety after unsuccessfully trying a few counselling sessions. Cyrille made me feel welcome and really took the time to listen me. Within a few weeks, with two sessions a week, I felt significantly better and less stressed. The immediate relief from anxiety was very important to me in my particular circumstances. The sessions provided relief from stress that have a lasting effect but each sessions itself is also very relaxing. I would recommend acupuncture to anybody going through a difficult time in their life and Equilibre Acupuncture is a great place to do it. You really helped me and it’s much appreciated! Thanks Cyrille!
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.
Michael (34) – Acid Reflux13 Jul 2015 Dublin
I was apprehensive about trying acupuncture, but Cyrille made the experience calm and extremely informative. He explained the treatment in detail and was honest and open throughout. He genuinely cares about his patients and genuinely wants you to get better. I visited Equilibre Acupuncture to get relief for chronic acid reflux. I felt a positive difference after only two treatments. The acupuncture treatment, along with Cyrille’s dietary advice helped my symptoms to improve.

There is always a relaxed atmosphere and Cyrille really makes you comfortable. I’ve really enjoyed the treatment thanks to his skills and kindness.

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!
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 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.
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.
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.
