Health Kinesiology



Doreen Bourke
Acupuncture & Complementary Medicine

In my clinic, located at The Grey House in Knocka, Drom, Templemore, I provide focused and specific acupuncture treatments, as well as NAET ® and Health Kinesiology services. With my combined knowledge in traditional Chinese and Western medical approaches, I identify imbalances in the body which cause pain, disease and disharmony and provide specialised treatments for a wide variety of symptoms.

About Me

Doreen Bourke

Doreen Bourke – Lic Ac, Dip Ac, RGN, BNS Nurse Mgt, NAET® Practitioner, Health Kinesiologist

I am trained as a registered general nurse and have over 30 years’ experience in acute health care. My interest in alternative medicine began as a result of a personal health issue; acupuncture was key in facilitating my recovery. Having first-hand experience of receiving acupuncture and a curiosity to find out how the body was triggered to heal, I enrolled onto a 3 year Diploma in Acupuncture in 2009 at the Lansdowne College of Acupuncture where I studied under the guidance of Dr Vincent Carroll. 

My fascination with Chinese Medicine has not stopped and I have since achieved a diploma in Chinese Patent Herbs and embarked on further study of Classical Chinese Medicine under the instruction of Daoist Priest Jeffrey Yuen and Professor Henry McCann. My specific areas of interest are in women’s health, in particular fertility. Since opening my clinic I have been instrumental in supporting many women on their fertility journey.

However, since studying Chinese Medicine my interest was piqued to look into other areas of alternative medicine. I trained as a NAET ® Practitioner in 2014 and qualified as a Health Kinesiologist in 2018. I am the only qualified Associate Health Kinesiologist in Ireland. NAET ® and Health Kinesiology allow me to question the body to discover where the blocks to health are being held. I then assist the body to release the blockages which ultimately free up the bodies energy system and brings the body back into harmony.

I would highly recommend Doreen for NAET® and acupuncture. I've had fantastic results with shoulder and back problems. The warm and friendly atmosphere when you go into Doreen makes treatment so much easier and a more pleasant experience overall.



Cannot recommend Doreen enough. I am an official Non-Smoker thanks to her. Going from 30 a day to none within a week I can only attribute to her and her acupuncture treatments. The treatment helped ease the cravings and I can honestly see myself as a non-smoker now.



I would definitely recommend Doreen for NAET® treatment, she is very good & I am amazed at how these treatments work.
