About Malou

Hi, I’m Malou (Xiao Chun Wang). I am a professional and confident Dublin-based Chinese acupuncturist with over 25 years of experience, both, in China and Dublin. I am also an accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. 

Following three years nursing training, which involved studying Acupuncture and the use of Chinese herbs, I practiced as a Traditional Chinese Medicine nurse for many years in a hospital in Shanghai. I worked in the Department of Internal Diseases and the Department of Neurosurgery, where Western and Chinese Medicine are used in tandem in order to speed up patient’s recovery.
To be able to practice acupuncture in Ireland, I underwent a further two-year study and gained a Diploma in Acupuncture from Shanghai Acupuncture College Ireland. In 2010, I have completed a Herbal course in an Acupuncture Foundation, after which I went back to Shanghai to practice healing with herbs in Gynaecology and Oncology departments in Yue Yang Hospital.

I am also an accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. I am a full member of IACP. My work is humanistic integrative which means that it draws on any of several theoretical approaches as client needs demand (including attachment theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), client-centred theory, existential, Gestalt therapy, psychodynamic, family system and mindfulness approaches.  

What is Acupuncture?

It’s the ancient art of Chinese medicine (Traditional Chinese Medical) which has been practiced for more than 3,000 years. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) system, the healthy body is balanced with Qi (vital energy) flowing freely throughout the body in specific channels and nourishing the organs. Acupuncture is particularly effective in Pain Management, Anxiety, Stress & Panic Attacks, Depression, Cancer Care, Asthma, Bronchitis, Stroke, Headaches, Sinusitis, Gastrointestinal Disorders (Ulcers, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Gynaecological (Menopause, PMS, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Menstrual Cramps), Obstetric (Infertility, Pregnancy, Postnatal Care), Urinary and Sexual Problems.
