Want To Know More About Me?
You are reading this because you were meant to be here right now, on this page. You did not find me by chance – there is no such thing. You are here because you are looking for effective methods to upgrade your health. You may have other issues that you would like to address but, upon digging deeper, you will find that 99% of them can be taken care of by taking care of yourself and developing robust, long-lasting health.
I am Janice Tucker, a half English, half Welsh woman, living in County Kerry, Ireland, practising Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture, and teaching Qigong (how’s that for a mixture)! I help people who want to take positive steps to augment their health.
You may be struggling with one or a number of health issues, chronic or acute. You may have exhausted many other avenues of treatment and be wondering if there is any hope that your condition and state of health will ever improve.
You may be fed up with feeling like you are “fire-fighting” your way through life with very little control. You may be worried that if your current situation continues then it could ultimately lead to even more health problems down the line.
I am able to help you by guiding you every step of the way along the road to becoming bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!
Since I qualified as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2000, I have been helping thousands of people just like you to achieve an optimistic, confident attitude to presiding over their health now AND IN THE FUTURE.
Why Should You Listen To Me?
I possess a perfectionist trait which has driven me down a “want to know everything” pathway. This led me to:
- a degree and PhD in Zoology;
- a qualification as a secondary school science teacher
- a Licentiate in Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture;
- 4 month long study visits to train in Medical Qigong at the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Guangzhou, China.
I still can’t quite believe I did all that without having a meltdown!
More than 20 years ago I learned that Western medicine can offer some spectacular solutions to medical conditions and illnesses (it saved the life of one of my immediate family). At this time I never imagined that I would open my mind to the world of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Medical Qigong. However, here’s how I (semi-strategically with a bit of divine intervention) fell into what I’m doing now …..
Upon moving to Dublin to be with my partner at the time, I was faced with a huge dilemma – no job!
I applied to numerous scientific companies for work with no luck. As a non-Irish speaker I could not teach in an Irish secondary school because, at that time, Irish language was a requirement for teachers. So many qualifications and seemingly unemployable! This was a huge challenge to my feelings of not being good enough and for a few months I felt pretty hopeless.
After much soul searching and giving myself a stern talking to, I stopped feeling sorry for myself and took professional career advice. That is when Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture popped up on the radar. It was the perfect solution for me. I was able to put my biology background to use, learn something new and challenging, and fulfil my passion for helping people. It’s also the only job I’ve ever done in which I haven’t been bored within a year!
How My Eclectic Background Can Help You
Since qualifying in 2000 I have been developing my skills as a Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and Qigong practitioner. My 3 well-established clinical practices in Kerry, Ireland have allowed me to gain a unique 3-pronged perspective around the world of health management.
1. My conventional biology training allows me to understand health in a conventional way.
2. Chinese medicine allows me to view health from the 5000 ft view – to know that your health depends on many factors; diet, exercise, sex, emotions, work, family, relationships, etc.
3. My Qigong training and my teaching experience allows me to share even more ways to help you to learn how to manage your health for yourself, nipping potential problems in the bud before they become a huge, unmanageable, worrisome pain in the butt!
Also, rest assured that you are in safe hands. I’m a member of the Acupuncture Council of Ireland (ACI). The ACI leads the development of Acupuncture standards and integration within Irish medicine for the well-being and care of patients. The ACI is responsible for the regulation and maintenance of a Register of Acupuncturists in Ireland. Only fully qualified and insured practitioners can become members of ACI. All members are bound by a Code of Ethics and Code of Practice, which is strictly enforced by the Executive Committee of the ACI, thus offering a guarantee of confidence to any patient seeking treatment. It is a condition of membership that each practicing member carries Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance Cover.
I’m in a state of constant appreciation and gratitude that I’ve been able to spend many years helping and teaching thousands of motivated clients and Qigong students to make huge positive changes to the state of their physical, mental and emotional health.
I believe that:
– anyone can learn how to turn their health around.
– you can be in control of your life.
– nobody need worry how to take the helm where their future health is concerned.
– my blend of understanding of Western and Chinese medicine puts me in a unique position to help thousands more people.
If you are feeling stuck in the mud and are looking to take positive action towards fulfilling your health potential but not quite sure how to go about it, then why not think about working with me?
