What to expect at Dantien Acupuncture:

Since acupuncture and TCM are holistic therapies, a comprehensive assessment of your state of health and general condition will be completed by Dave or Anna,  using various techniques including pulse and tongue and Channel Palpation diagnosis. At Dantien we use comprehensive methods to piece together a picture of your general health, physical and emotional well being. Once the overall condition has been assessed, a treatment principle can be decided which may involve some form of acupuncture, massage, acupressure, heat therapy or electric pulses to direct your bodies own healing mechanisms to return your body to a state of health and boost energy, vitality and well being.

Treatment Rooms designed for Privacy & Comfort

You will have a warm, comfortable, secure, candlelight  room with soft music (not elevator music),  aromatic oils will burn to set the atmosphere for a most relaxing, enjoyable rejuvenating treatment in the convenience of Dublin city.

Most of your clothes will remain on during treatment. Abdominal Dr. Tan imaging and global balancing methods or traditional acupuncture usually only requires your top to be rolled up to just above your navel, occasionally your top might need to be removed to treat the shoulders and usually shoes and socks are taken off and trousers rolled up to the knee. Sterile very fine needles (hair thin) are then inserted painlessly (on occasion a slight pinch will be felt) to the acupoints being used with Abdominal acupuncture there is little or no awareness of the needles, traditional acupuncture needles can give a warm radiating or tingling sensation see this demonstration (skip to the end for feedback if you want) of me trating shoulder, elbow wrists and finger pain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UKs6jedbmM. You will then be left with a heat lamp over your torso for your comfort. Needles are left in place for between 20-40 minutes during which time you will become so relaxed you will probably fall asleep. After your treatment you will continue to feel very chilled out and your sleep that night will be very refreshing and more rewarding than usual. Your symptoms will normally have improved by the end of your treatment. You will be amazed at the difference one hour can make! Often the improvements continue over a number of days and usually we see the duration of your improvement increases as the number of treatments continue, until your problem has completely been fixed.


The Dan Tien studio is warm and comfortable and Dave is really friendly and great at what he does – I would have no hesitation in recommending him.” – S. Harrison.

“This man knows his stuff. Also impressed by the facilities…the 3 treatment rooms have doors and solid walls unlike many curtained acupuncture clinics. Would highly recommend a visit to Dan Tien.” – R. Collins

“My first impression about the studio and particularly David was very pleasant. It is nice, comfortable and warm place. After closing the front door I felt being stepped into surroundings that made me feel protected and being looked after. I realize from the moment I spoke to David that he is very professional, definitely very knowledgeable about acupuncture. My first session went pretty well, clearly better that I had anticipated. David made me feel so relaxed. I completely forgot that he inserted some needles into my body. I’d been left in the warm room, with soft music playing on, to rest.” G. Gudimenko

* All needles are sterile and disposed of after one use
