"Vera Deale Lic Ac. C. Ac (Nanjing). Dublin
I completed my training with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland in July 2006 and would highly recommend the course. During this three year course I feel I gained the knowledge,skills and practical experience to enable me to become a competent practitioner of acupuncture. After thirty six years professional experience in the field of nursing and midwifery I now enjoy running a busy acupuncture clinic which gives me tremendous job satisfaction. I would not hesitate in recommending this course to anyone considering a future in acupuncture."
