Hi, I’m Malou (Xiao Chun Wang). I am a professional and confident Dublin-based Chinese acupuncturist with Overall, I have about 25 years experiences in both China and Dublin
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 go back to hospitals in Shanghai on a regular basis to further deepen my knowledge in various areas of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Through almost 2 decades of acupuncture practice, I have always been curious about psyche (Mind) and soma (Body) interconnection. After 4 years of studying at Dublin Business School, I have been awarded a bachelor degree BA in Counselling and Psychotherapy. These studies have enhanced my empathetic understanding of feelings of myself and others. When Western medicine and philosophy meet Eastern, it allows Mind, Body and Spirit to emerge into the ‘ONE’.
