Abdominal Acupuncture

Abdominal Acupuncture (Fu Zhen) in Dublin is at the centre of your health

Abdominal acupuncture is a revolutionary new acupuncture technique, first brought to Ireland by Dave Shipsey, He is the author of the first English book on this subject “Mastering the Art of Abdominal Acupuncture” and he teaches this amazing form to acupuncturist’s through his school Centreforce Abdominal Acupuncture . It has been rapidly accepted and gained huge recognition because of its astonishing therapeutic results. It is very gentle as there is little needle sensation, for this reason 90% of people prefer it to traditional acupuncture. It is powerful in its action and it can be used to treat any condition that traditional acupuncture treats (usually with a faster curative time). Results tend to be powerful and long lasting and are often felt instantaneously hence abdominal acupuncture is also known as the “miracle therapy”. See a demonstration I did for a group of acupuncturists while teaching this form of acupuncture Abdominal Acupuncture Treatment.

The abdomen is our second Brain

The abdomen is recognised as our second brain it has the largest number of nerve cells next to the brain. As a result it has immense control over our emotional well being as well as our overall health, immunity, and it is particularly important in the regulation of digestion. As a result abdominal acupuncture can be a very effective way of losing weight, where there is an organic factor to weight increases. The abdomen produces about 90% of all serotonin a hormone responsible for mood, sleep, learning and blood pressure. Abdominal acupuncture therefore has far reaching affects and also helps to relieve depression, anxiety and other emotional issues. Abdominal acupuncture is invigorating energetically and improves sleep.

It is a safer form since the needles are generally inserted superficially and therefore it is almost pain free acupuncture.  You may feel a general warm radiating feeling or if you are very, in tune with your bodies energy, you  may feel a qi sensation in the relevant part of the body being worked on, such as the arm, leg or back rather than the area of the abdomen being treated.

“When I had finished the course I really felt the benefits; my stress had gone, my energy was back, I was sleeping much better and I generally felt much better in myself. I was very impressed by how powerful and effective the abdominal acupuncture was.”

Anne F – Ireland

The results were spectacular; they felt like magic, plain and simple. The pain did come back briefly (in attenuated form) in the afternoon, but later on it disappeared altogether. 5 days later I am still amazed at how quickly and thoroughly Dave has fixed me.
