"She Changed My Life"
"Between the ages of 11-21 I suffered continuous chest infections and sinus problems. I was on constant antibiotics , steroids and inhalers. I had been hospitalised on numerous occasions and my medical expenses were very high. I first attended Laura’s clinic at the age of 21 years, she changed my life. I am now 40 years of age, my health is good and I rarely suffer infections now. I cannot thank Laura enough and would recommend her for anyone suffering from ill health."
- S.K.
"I have never looked back, that is over 15 years ago. "
"I had a lot of chest and sinus infections and was on antibiotics full time, I suffered greatly. Then not even the antibiotic cured it. I was in Longford and saw Laura’s clinic and decided to try it. I couldn’t believe when I went to Laura and took the treatments that it cured me. I have never looked back, that is over 15 years ago. I would recommend Laura to any person who has a complaint. My digestion, energy and immune system are great."
- Marian R
"I am happy with my weight and feel amazing."
"I suffered from constant bloating, I felt so tired all the time and I was miserable. I couldn’t lose weight despite trying several diets. My friend recommended Laura Thompson. She explained to me how my gut worked. I followed her plan and I have never looked back. I am happy with my weight and feel amazing. I can't recommend Laura highly enough."
- Louise S.
"I have lost weight and I have loads of energy"
"I initially came to Laura because I had a rash all over my body. I tried a dermatologist who put me on lots of medication which did nothing to help. I went to Laura’s clinic and she explained that my problems were coming from m digestive system and that I needed to treat it from the inside out. Since following Laura's advice my skin is clear, I have lost weight and I have loads of energy. Can’t thank Laura enough! "
- Brian F
"I am forever thankful to Laura"
"n Jan 2015, I was diagnosed with PCOS after my periods failed to return after being on the pill for 13 years. A scan of my ovaries indicated it would be very unlikely that I would ever get pregnant naturally. I was absolutely devastated. After nine months on metformin and a heart breaking miscarriage. I was in a dreadful place both physically and emotionally. Initially Laura treated me with vitamins and probiotics and then acupuncture. I now have two beautiful girls and I can honestly say that I don’t think they would be here now without the treatment and support I received from Laura over the last few years. I am forever thankful to Laura for that. I cannot recommend Laura’s enough!
- J.K.
"Doesn’t feel like a diet and I feel fantastic!"
"I have struggled to lose weight for most of my life. My stomach was constantly bloated and I was always hungry. I tried several diets where I would sometimes lose weight but I always put it back on again. My friend recommended Laura and I decided to try her six week plan. Within two weeks my stomach went down, and by the end of the six weeks I had lost 16 pounds. That was over 12 months ago and I am still maintaining my weight. Doesn’t feel like a diet and I feel fantastic! Thank you"

Nutritional Therapy
As a nutritional therapist Laura will work with you to enhance your health and general wellbeing through diet and nutrition.

Using her specialist knowledge to conduct a holistic assessment of your nutritional requirements, she can then suggest specific changes to your diet in an attempt to prevent or alleviate illness and promote good health.

Laura also works with patients with chronic health conditions in collaboration with other qualified healthcare professionals. Nutritional Therapy is a complimentary therapy and is often used alongside conventional medicine. It involves analysing a person’s diet and tailoring it according to their individual needs.

By taking account of the patients history of illness and treatments already, it aims to remove toxins , nourish the cells of the body and increase cellular energy so that the body can function properly.
Food and Your Body
By eating a diet that suits you, previous health complaints may disappear for example, your energy levels , body weight, concentration and memory may improve. This applies to both children and adults alike. Research shows that various conditions such as eczema, asthma, and attention deficit in children have all benefited through nutritional intervention.
Nutritional Therapy is valuable throughout your lifetime for: babies, children, teenagers, adults, athlete’s, pregnant mothers and the elderly.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin, to various depths at strategic points on your body.

Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago, but over the past two decades its popularity has grown significantly. Although scientists don’t fully understand how or why acupuncture works, some studies indicate that it may provide a number of medical benefits- from reducing pain to helping with chemotherapy- induced nausea.

What happens during an Acupuncture session?

Acupuncture involves a series of weekly or bi-weekly treatments. The first consultation involves a lengthy examination and assessment of your current condition, the insertion of needles, and a discussion about self-care tips. This may take up to an hour. Subsequent visits generally last 30 minutes.
Before the needles are placed, you’ll be lying down on a comfortable surface. Depending on where the needles go, you will lie face down, face up or on your side. All needles are single use, generally the procedure isn’t painful.
The amount of sessions required will depend on the presenting condition. A musculoskeletal presentation might take 3-5 sessions. A long term chronic condition will need a maximum of 10 sessions. A long term chronic condition will need a maximum of 10 sessions.

Acupuncture is a powerful treatment for ailments and has been used in china for thousands of years.
It can bring a sense of balance and harmony to the entire body giving pain relief and help to reduce stress and increase vitality and boost your immune system.
Fertility Acupuncture
Trying for a baby can be very stressful for some people, particularly if time is not on their side. Acupuncture can help to reduce this stress but more importantly it helps with the following:
  • Helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and promotes regular cycle ovulation.
  • ​Helps to produce a larger number of follicles by regulating hormones.
  • ​Increases the thickness of the uterine lining, so encourages successful implantation.
  • ​Improves the function of the ovaries therefore producing better quality eggs.
  • ​Relieves the side effects of drugs used in IVF. 
  • ​Reduces the chance of Miscarriage.
Studies show acupuncture before and after embryo transfer can increase the success rate of I.V.F. (in vitro fertilization) to 43% compared with 26% in the control group (an increase of 60%).

As a Nutritional Therapist I like to combine acupuncture and give all my fertility patients a diet and supplement programme to enhance their success.
Cosmetic Acupuncture
Want to look Younger? Skin lost its Glow?

Then Cosmetic Acupuncture may be the answer.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is used by celebrities like Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie to name but a few!

Factors such as pollution, make-up, poor skin care, smoking, alcohol and drug use, dehydration, stress and emotional and hormonal imbalance, can all have a detrimental effect on skin tone. Along with improving the look and tone of the skin, acupuncture can reduce stress and improve energy. When you have a cosmetic acupuncture session not only will you see fabulous results in your skin, but you will also see an improvement in your energy and a reduction in your stress levels.

I treat the body holistically paying attention to any underlying problems such as a sluggish digestive system which can contribute in particular to dull skin.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
No, a very gentle needling technique is used. The sensation experienced from an acupuncture needle is not at all like that of a hypodermic needle. The needles are 1/10th of the thickness of hypodermic needles.
Are there any side effects?
No, unlike Cosmetic Surgery or Botox the treatment is non-invasive. In very rare cases there may be some slight bruising to the face, but the majority of people will have no noticeable signs and can return to work straight after a treatment.
How much does it Cost?
One treatment costs €55, if you book and pay for 6 treatments up front, you get one free.
How many treatments will I need?
That depends on your age and the condition of your skin.  Generally 1 or 2 treatments a week are recommended to get you started. I suggest you have at least 4-6 treatments in close proximity. 

 After that you can have a treatment every 4-6 weeks to maintain the benefits. (Remember the aging process is ongoing).
What happens during a Treatment?
Firstly, I take a case history, examine your tongue, feel your pulse and carefully examine your skin. Then, you will lie comfortably while I cleanse your skin, before inserting very fine needles into specific areas of your face, scalp and body. 

 I then leave you in a warm, relaxing room for 30 minutes, before removing the needles. Lastly, I gently roll your skin using a derma-roller before applying a soothing hydrating serum.
Bio Resonance
Bio-resonance can trace the root cause of your health problems by uncovering hidden infections, poisons, and viruses which undermine good health.

It is used to detect food intolerance's and allergies, which can contribute to various diseases such as obesity, fatigue, digestive complaints, asthma, eczema and numerous ailments, too many to list.

It is a valuable tool on identifying toxic and weak organ systems, and with the use of prescribed Homeopathic Remedies, can help to remove them layer by layer, in order of significance.

The treatment is totally pain free and can be used on adults and babies alike. The results are given immediately and there is no need for fasting. 
Remedies are optional but, in order to achieve maximum results, are highly recommended.
Other Testing
Stool & Saliva Testing
I also provide a number of tests including stool and saliva tests. These tests help to identify various conditions such as candida, leaky gut syndrome, and various other conditions. Each test comes with a detailed supplement programme diet and life style advice.

Hair Analysis Testing
Hair analysis is an advanced form of food intolerance testing.  What does it test for?
  • Almost 300 of the most common food items
  •  Over 300 non-food items including chemicals used in food processing and packaging.
  •  80 of the most common nutrients your body requires daily 
A small amount of hair is taken from the back of the neck and sent to a lab for testing. The test can be carried out on color treated hair and also for pets such as dogs and cats.
Food Intolerances and Allergy Testing
Allergy Testing
A food allergy is an instant reaction to food and causes an obvious inflammatory response which can affect numerous organs in the body. In some cases the reactions can be life threatening.

Fortunately food allergies are rare.

Food Intolerance Testing 
Food intolerances are much more common. They can often be hard to identify and in time if not checked can deplete the body of vital nutrients and lead to more serious conditions.

Many people with food intolerances first experience digestive problems such as feeling bloated,sluggish,constipation, diarrhoea and heartburn. 

When this is left unchecked it can then invade other parts of the body causing an inflammatory response in almost every organ in the body causing fatigue, skin conditions migraine asthma, anxiety, hyperactivity and the list goes on.

The test that I offer identifies these foods and with a personalized diet, remedy and supplement programme repairs and strengthens the body restoring vitality. When the programme is completed most patients can reintroduce these foods with no reoccurrence of symptoms. 

Blood tests for food intolerance testing are available also.
WHAT HAPPENS AT YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION?
I will examine your health history and assess your physical , emotional and hereditary aspects. I will also check that your digestion and absorption systems which are vital for good health are functioning correctly. 

During the consultation we will discuss and complete a detailed questionnaire on all aspects of your health and lifestyle. Using the information gathered I will then put together an individual personal nutrition programme incorporating the required vitamins, minerals and other relevant nutrients. Special attention will be paid to any under – functioning organs that may require particular nutritional support.

Each patient will receive an explanation of potential underlying causes of their health concerns, a full dietary programme with advice about the use of nutritional supplementation (if indicated ) along with written general nutritional information and menu plans.
