How is your energy? Do you sleep well?


How many times have you been woken by your alarm clock and just think to yourself that I haven’t been to sleep long enough and you just want to turn over in bed and sleep for a few more hours.

Or you keep hitting the snooze button on your alarm clock and get up with only 5 minutes to get out the door to work or to take the kids to school.

You mind is foggy and you can’t think straight, you have poor concentration, your body feels like you are carrying a big bag of boulders around with you, you have aching muscles and sometimes a dull more

Do you suffer with Mental Health issues? Do you have Depression? Does Anxiety affect you?

In Traditional Chinese medicine the emotions are understood in terms of their relationship to different organs in the body,

  • Spleen – melancholic feeling down,
  • Heart – happiness,
  • Kidney – fear flight and fright,
  • Lung-  grief sadness,
  • Liver – frustration and anger.  

We should all experience these emotions on a normal healthy balanced level.  But an excess of emotions can cause ill health.

To much anger disrupts the flow of your liver Qi so you can get symptoms of feeling angry, frustrated, get a tightness in your chest, a lump in your throat, signing, knotty feeling in your tummy, nausea, women can experience tender breast and disruption to the menstrual cycle.

You can experience to much joy like winning the lotto the excitement can be to much and has a physical affect on your heart and you have a heart attack.

This emphasises the interconnectedness between the organ and the emotional health.  So in traditional Chinese medicine if you treat the organ affected by the emotion it is possible to help achieve more balanced emotions. Read more

Hi, this is just to say that me and my family, and many  friends have had at least 10 years of acupuncture treatment on and off from Lucy Townsley. We have found Lucy excellent, and she produced very good results, particularly with muscular injuries.  Lucy has a great knowledge of anatomy and a great knowledge of horses.  She has also treated us for a variety of problems, including various limbs, and back problems, bad chest, anxiety, disturbed sleep, and  a friend had very bad vertigo, which she sorted out very well.Lucy has a very pleasant, efficient  manner, and my husband and myself thoroughly recommend Lucy, and wish her every success in Galway.  She is greatly missed in Tipperary.

I went to Lucy to have acupuncture as I had been recommended by a friend that Lucy was excellent at helping people with fertility issues which was a concern for my husband and myself at the time.  Lucy was so welcoming and understanding.  I felt at ease with her straight away.  My husband and myself both attended Lucy before and during IVF treatments and both times we were blessed with a pregnancy and now have two lovely and healthy children.  Lucy went out of her way on numerous occasions to meet with us after normal working hours because we were attending a hospital in Dublin.  We would both highly recommend Lucy to anyone who is looking to use acupuncture as an additional aid for whatever concerns they may have.


I had been suffering from severe menstrual pain and tiredness for a while and decided to have treatments of acupuncture with Lucy.  I found Lucy to be excellent, she has an understanding and calming approach towards her clients.  I have improved greatly and have less menstrual pain and not as tired now.  The treatments are relaxing and energising.  I would always come out from the session feeling calm and relaxed.  I enjoyed the treatments and would recommend Lucy to anyone she is gifted in her work.


As recommended by the Kilkenny clinic to help with fertility I started attending Lucy for acupuncture. A couple of weeks in and i discovered I was pregnant. I keep attending weekly at 1st to help with early stages of pregnancy and then attended monthly until the final month i returned for weekly sessions. I believe it helped me fell well throughout my whole pregnancy, I didn’t suffer from morning sickness and towards the end relieved my swollen ankles.  At first I was a little apprehensive about the needles but with Lucy’s gentle and professional manner it didn’t hurt, I always had a sense of calmness and felt upbeat after each session. I would recommend Lucy as an acupuncturist for anyone needing help with varying areas of their health and well being.

I‘ve been attending Lucy Townsley  for numerous years, for various ailments and find her to be an excellent practitioner of Acupuncture. I’ve attended other Acupuncturist before attending Lucy and found her to be the most professional and caring at her job. I would highly recommend Lucy.

I found the acupuncture treatment with Lucy very relaxing. I definitely felt the benefits afterwards, I felt more positive and energetic. I would definitely go back to Lucy in the future for treatments.


My name is Monica Fogarty from Tipperary Town.  I have been attending Lucy Townsley for Acupuncture for the last 12 years. I started going to Lucy for Acupuncture originally for my back but progressed on to have acupuncture for other injuries which I found it brilliant for. After being on medication for along time for my kidneys and bladder I started getting acupuncture on a monthly basis and was able to stop the medication. I also had acupuncture for my sinuses and Lucy treated me for stress which worked very successfully. Lucy is a very warm and welcoming person who not only treats you with acupuncture but is always there to listen which is so important. I would highly recommend Lucy Townsley for Acupuncture and would say to anybody that has’nt tried it don’t knock if until you have.
