Maria Maher, AcuWell Dublin


Maria Maher is the founder of Acuwell.

Studies have shown that acupuncture can be very effective in treating male and female natural fertility, infertility (male and female), and in supporting women during pregnancy and post-pregnancy.

This is an area of special interest at AcuWell. Owner and practitioner, Maria Maher, holds a Diploma with Distinction in TCM Gynaecology and Obstetrics – Acupuncture, awarded by Dr. Trevor Wing of The Woman’s Natural Health Practice. She is a founder-member of the Zita West affiliated acupuncturist network for reproductive health, which was established in Ireland in 2009, and is on the Steering Committee of Acupuncture for Fertility & Pregnancy Ireland (formerly A.C.T. Dublin). Maria has also completed postgraduate training with other UK-based experts in the areas of fertility, pregnancy and obstetrics, notably, with Jani White of Nature Child, renowned midwife and acupuncturist Sarah Budd, as well as with Debra Betts, midwife, acupuncturist, international lecturer and author based in New Zealand.

At AcuWell acupuncture treatments for fertility and pregnancy include the provision of Fact Sheets from fertility expert, Zita West, which cover dietary and nutrition advice, lifestyle advice, preparation for IVF, advice on trying to conceive naturally, and advice during early pregnancy. In addition to this, AcuWell provides dietary advice in terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which offers a different view of the human body and of food. Other helpful resources and information are also provided and fertility questionnaires will be sent to the patient and/or couple for completion before the initial treatment.
