Acupuncture Foundation Graduates Testimonials


Evan Scully, Dip Ac, Lic Ac - Scully Therapy Clinic

evan scullydouble quote serif left xxlI did my professional acupuncture training with the Acupuncture Foundation Ireland and my experience has been outstanding. The lecturers are superb, very knowledgeable and skilled. It was the only Acupuncture College in Ireland with expert Chinese lecturers and clinicians. They share their clinical experiences with students and make the learning material understandable.

I learned a lot from them and now have a busy practice, where I am able to treat my patients with confidence and provide an excellent treatment. I would happily recommend the college to anyone wanting to study Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

Since qualifying in 2012, Evans practice, Scully Therapy Clinic, has gone from strength to strength. Specialising in sports injuries, he has gained experience with Olympic athletes in such groups as Nike Oregon Project & Oregon Track Club and worked with Olympic medallists from Kenya, Ethiopia, Algeria and Tunisia, U.S.A, Great Britain, Botswana, Morocco. Along with these, Evan has worked with elite athletes from Canada, Australia, Belgium, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, Italy, France, Bahrain, Somalia, Ireland, and Mexico.


Arina Wojtenko, Dip Ac, Lic Ac - Ren Shen Acupuncture Clinic

arina testimonials roundeddouble quote serif left xxlChanging career is a big step for everybody. I chose to study Chinese Medicine with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland, and it was most definitely the right choice. Over my three years of studies I was guided by wonderful teachers and excellent clinicians who shared their extensive knowledge of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and made what could have been difficult concepts easy to understand.

I found the course to be very professional and intensive but the student support is excellent and really helped me in my studies. From the first session I found my confidence growing easily thanks to the detailed introduction and breakdown of Chinese Medicine Theory and the practical, hands on skills sessions; while the online learning further supported my understanding of Chinese Medicine Theory. The fact that I was able to work while studying was a major plus for me.

One of the most exciting things for me was the post graduate clinical experience placement with Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine and affiliated teaching hospitals. This really helped my confidence in my practice and it is something I would definitely recommend. I discovered a love of studying Chinese Medicine and as a result am currently studying for my Masters degree in Chinese Medicine. I would strongly recommend the Acupuncture Foundation for anyone thinking of studying Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.


Dr Viera Husarova, Dip Ac, Lic Ac - Eccles Clinic

viera husarovadouble quote serif left xxlI completed my professional acupuncture training with the Acupuncture Foundation Ireland in 2018. I enjoyed the course as the atmosphere at the college was very friendly and I was able to study along my work. The structure of the lectures was very logical and designed at the different levels to help us gradually understand the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The lectures were delivered online and as weekend classes presented by the experts in the field with years of clinical experience.

This is the only course in Ireland where we were able to develop hands on skills in needling technique from the very beginning to built up our confidence in treating the patients. The post graduate placement to Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine teaching hospitals was amazing experience for me as the medical doctor in terms of seeing the different healthcare system where the Western and Traditional Chinese medicine work together in holistic approach to the patients.

I would recommend this course with the Acupuncture Foundation to anyone considering a future career in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
