About David Hankey Acupuncture Cork

Hi, I’m David Hankey and I run an acupuncture clinic – David Hankey Acupuncture Cork. I have been studying and practicing oriental health systems for more than 30 years.

Please note : I am not seeing patients with flu symptoms, travel history, or COVID-19 contact

I practice Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Shiatsu (Japanese acupressure), Tuina (Chinese therapeutic massage), and Reflexology. I also teach Tai Chi and Qigong in classes and on a one to one basis. These exercises are highly beneficial for maintaining optimal health.

A primary focus of Traditional Chinese Medicine is on prevention, rather than cure, so it is always good to have a treatment – you don’t need to have any symptoms!
