About Kate

Hi, I’m Kate, an acupuncturist and Tuina massage therapist based in Naas, Co Kildare.

Whilst acupuncture and massage have a wide range of applications, my main focuses are:

  • Using acupuncture to help patients in their fertility and pregnancy journeys
  • Using acupuncture and massage to help patients with muscular and skeletal injuries, for example with back, neck and shoulder pain

Every patient that comes to me has a different set of needs, and as such I work with them to create a custom treatment plan to improve their health and well-being.

In formulating treatment plans, I draw upon extensive experience in multiple fields. This includes:

  • Starting out as a massage therapist in 1993, then studying aromatherapy in 1994.
  • Then in 1998, I completed my training as an acupuncturist with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland.
  • Once qualified, I grew my skills by working directly with patients, whilst regularly attending courses and seminars.
  • The next major skill was studying Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture in London in 2007.
  • And then utilising acupuncture for fertility treatment, with the Zita West Network, in 2012. With ongoing Zita West training each year.
  • I’ve also studied and received a diploma in nutrition, which I use to help guide patients where needed.

Currently I treat from my home in Naas, and look forward to working with new patients, and helping them in their journey.

I’ve been seeing Kate for a couple of years now, and it’s always a pleasure. I started seeing her to help with stress,... but now acupuncture has become a key part of looking after myself. I’d highly recommend Kate!read more
