Does Acupuncture hurt?
People experience the needling sensation (movement of the Qi) differently. The Qi sensation is often described as warming, heavy, numb or tingling, and rarely as painful. Once the needles are inserted, they may be manipulated to obtain the Qi sensation. This is how an acupuncturist engages the Qi in order to promote balance in the channels that carry the Qi throughout the body. I take great care to make my patients as comfortable as possible. My patients describe the experience as deeply relaxing while the needles are in place. Many people even fall asleep during treatment. Following treatment it is common to feel a tremendous sense of relaxation and calm.

Welcome to Olivia Emmett Acupuncture
I graduated from Lansdowne college of Acupuncture in 2009 with a Diploma in Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Certificate in clinical western medicine. I then went to complete my advanced studies at the University of TCM in Beijing, China and to gain clinical experience in the hospitals in Beijing. Since then I have been working treating all manner of conditions from my clinic in Artane, with great success.
Like insomnia,digestive problems,bowel issues,back problems,Arthritis,MS,Tinnitus, Depression,Anxiety.Low immunity, Asthma,Urinary problems and many more.
I became particulary interested in the area of fertility through my own personal experience of fertility issues and through the help of Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine I have an amazing little girl who I’m grateful for everyday. As an acupuncturist I realised that not all acupuncturists understand or can treat fertility as It’s a hugely specialised area.
I started to study more in the area of infertility, taking postgraduate courses specialising in Advanced IVF and assisted fertility with Therese Parsons, Autoimmunity in Fertility with Dr Trevor Wing and the treatment of PCOS. These courses only served to fuel my interest more.
I then completely emersed myself in training and went on to study in London with Dr Trevor Wing, who is a leader in this field. I have completed a TCM Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and I’m now a women’s natural health practice associated practitioner with Dr Trevor Wing.
I specialise in helping many men and woman to conceive using acupuncture and traditional chinese medicine. Some of the areas I help with are improving low sperm counts, poor sperm motility and poor morphology.I treat PCOS, Endometriosis, thinning endometrium and help to balance the menstrual cycle. I support woman through IUI, IVF and ISCI. I treat to support a healthy pregnancy and issues that arise during pregnancy. My work sometimes needs me to induce labour and control pain during labour or help with postpartum conditions like postnatal depression and mastitis. My patients tell me my understanding of what they are going through is of great support.
I work from my clinic in Artane. I work flexible hours, late evenings and Saturdays.
I feel very privileged to be able to help my patients through this very private and emotional journey.
