About Stephanie Dornan

I am professionally trained to provide personalised acupuncture treatments in a relaxed environment where you can talk confidentially about any health concerns you may have. The services I offer include Five Element Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture, Facial Enhancement Cosmetic Acupuncture (FEA), acupuncture for fertility, Cupping, and Gua Sha.

I am accredited by the British Acupuncture Accreditation Board (BAAB) and am a professional member of the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association of Ireland (AFPA) and the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC). As a member of these professional bodies I am fully qualified and registered, hold Professional Indemnity Insurance and am committed to abiding by strict codes of ethics and safe practice.

I regularly attend conferences and courses to continue my professional development, including post-graduate study in obstetrics, gynaecology, hormonal balance for fertility and Facial Enhancement Cosmetic Acupuncture. I am also a qualified First Aider.

I trained at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in the UK where I completed 3,500+ hours of training and was awarded a first-class BSc Honours degree in Acupuncture. My training was ‘Integrated’ and combines both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Five Element Acupuncture styles.

Treatments and what to expect

Chinese Medicine doesn’t just treat the symptoms of an illness or injury, it treats the whole person. So before treating you I will take a comprehensive medical and personal history, designed to understand your general state of health and any conditions you may have. Some questions may appear unrelated to your condition, but your answers provide me with a complete picture of your health, allowing for more tailored treatment. This initial consultation will take around 1.5 hours (including treatment) and subsequent sessions will be about an hour.


Acupuncture involves inserting very fine, medical-grade needles into the skin, connective tissue (fascia) or muscle to stimulate the body's physiological processes, move blood and fluid and help the body clear any obstructions that may be disrupting the flow of energy.

Please be aware that there are approximately 500 acupuncture points in the body and some of the points selected for your treatment may be in a different part of the body from your complaint. For example, if you are suffering from headache, needles may be inserted in your foot or hand as the meridians that are located around the site of the headache flow to other parts of the body.

Non-Needling Treatments may also form part of treatment, either in addition to acupuncture or as a standalone treatment:
