Welcome to Natural Health Ireland
The Traditional Chinese Medical Practice, Letterkenny and the Natural Health Centre, Buncrana, are now established at the cutting edge of alternative medicine in Donegal.
Having established the Natural Health Centre in Buncrana in 1997 with his wife Maria, Kim Mc Menamin then decided to bring his vast clinical experience and expertise to Letterkenny. Kim’s wife Maria is also an established practitioner and will be offering her unique bodywork treatments at the practice.
Traditional Chinese Medicine which includes Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Tuina (Chinese Massage), Medical Qi Qong and Tai Chi is the world’s oldest medicine and has been tried and tested on millions of people. The recent popularity of Chinese medicine is down to the fact that people now realize the benefits of a medical health care system that can resolve and heal most diseases without the use of aggressive drugs, side effects and unnecessary surgery.
Have a look at some of the things acupuncture can treat in our blog:
Kim Mc Menamin came to the alternative health spectrum through his long and varied career in the Martial Arts namely Karate and more recently Tai Chi and Qi Qong. He is a 4th Dan Black Belt in Shito-Ryu Karate, a 4th Dan Black Belt in Ryukyu Kempo Karate, a 2nd Dan in Goju Ryu Karate and 2nd Duan in Tai Chi awarded by the Chinese Wushu (Martial Arts) Association based in Beijing. Using this background Kim has now formed his own system of Martial Arts called ZenDao Combatives (www.zendaocombatives.com). He has amassed a wealth of expertise and clinical experience in treating a wide and varied range of disorders and diseases. He is the first person in Donegal to have qualified in Acupuncture with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland (A.F.I.). The A.F.I. based in Dublin is the first and longest established Chinese medical training college in Ireland.
