Welcome Qi Lin Traditional Chinese Medicine


I’m Keith Dowling. I’m a fully qualified and licensed Acupuncturist and Tui Na therapist. I graduated from the acupuncture foundation of Ireland and completed my clinical internship in Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine  in 1997. I went on to do advance training in Tai Chi in Chengdu China. During my time in Chengdu I trained in Chinese Massage, TuiNa, and I hold a professional license from Sichuan Provincial Government. I have trained with Si Yuan and Acupuncturists without borders in Trauma relief. Currently I practice in two locations in Kildare, a private clinic in Rathangan and a multi bed high frequency clinic in Celbridge. I am a member of the Acupuncture Foundation Professional Association and committed to furthering the benefits of Chinese medicine in Ireland.


I’m sure everybody has heard of acupuncture at some stage but let me give you some quick details of what it is and what we do

  • Back pain

  • Sciatica

  • Migraine

  • Hay fever

  • Digestive problems

  • Anxiety

  • Fertility 

  • Insomnia

Full list of WHO categories can be found here

How do we treat:


I have a number of methods but primarily we use extremely fine needles. For those who are not great with needles, I do offer treatments with a electro stim pen. 

Where do those needle go:


There are acu points all over the body, however with the style I practice, the majority are on the arms legs and scalp. (no disrobing needed)


Other Therapies:


Children’s Tuina massage.:

this is a brisk but light massage for children under six. It is very common in China and treats many patterns that acupuncture treats

Electro Stim Pen:

uses a pezo electric pulse to stimulate the points. generally used with children and adults that are just getting used to needles


Moxibustion is the burning of herbs on different parts of the skin. Extremely good for tonification and warming. (private appointment only)


Vacuum cups placed on the skin to promote healing, blood flow and separating the fascial layer

If you haven't seen this one yet, it's one of the most popular video I've created (It has been shared over a 1000 times!).
The cyclical flow of Qi in the meridians within a 24 hour day. The Chinese medicine clock helps us stay healthy (if we follow its rhythm!) and gives us clues of imbalance. Share away 😊 #TCMRocks
