Phil Carew offers so much more than just acupuncture. She is a true holistic practitioner who's aim is to get to the root of what ails her clients. She radiates integrity, empathy and kindness, putting her skills as an acupuncturist on another level.

I am so happy to have discovered Phil. She is that rare specimen - a gifted intuitive healer - who gives so much of herself to the healing process.

Thanks a million Phil for helping me get my mojo back!

Martina Dunne

Phil is an amazing acupuncturist. She helped me with managing tension headaches and she really managed my treatments in a holistic way. I can't recommend her enough.

Laura Corrigan

I picked up a virus after a fourteen hour flight.  Went to my doctor and had all sort of tests and treatments to no avail.  Four sessions with Phil got me back to myself.  Thanks Phil, your a saviour!

Eamonn Hargadon

I went to Phil after having constant migraines for the past 2 years.  I was taking prescribed medication but nothing was working.  After a course of treatments I was pain free.  Thanks to Phil I'm smiling again!

Pauline Reddy

I went to Phil with pain in both of my thumbs.  The pain had been affecting my work for the last 6 months as I am a hairdresser.  I am happy to say after 2 treatments the pain is gone and I have had no issues since.  Thanks Phil!

I have attended Phil over the last few months to treat sciatica and an overactive bladder.  I have found her acupuncture treatments to be highly effective and noticed an improvement from the first session.  I had tried physiotherapy and medication for these issues but with little success.  I can't recommend Phil highly enough, she is thoroughly knowledgeable and professional and explains everything in great detail.  I was surprised to find her treatments so relaxing, often nodding off!  I always feel wonderful after a session with her.

Michele W.

Phil was able to completely remove the pain and numbness in my arm. She's very professional and takes the time to explain what she's doing and what she's targeting in the treatment. I highly recommend her and will definitely call her up whenever I feel any persistent pain or tension in my muscles.

Giorgio Pavesio

Phil treated my 88 year old mother in the comfort of her own home. My mum has very recently been bereaved of her wonderful husband. Apart from being totally heartbroken and very anxious of living on her own, she has a few underlying issues ie; severe relentless pain from arthritis in her neck, hands and feet, digestive issues and sleep problems.

As a family caring for our mother, we have seen a huge improvement.  she is more relaxed in herself, less anxious and has increased energy to which we put down to Phil's caring intuitive compassionate treatments. My mum says she notices huge improvements in herself as well. She looks forward to Phil's weekly arrival and the tender acupuncture treatments with infra-red lamp, plus the fabulous massage with Phil's special therapeutic oils. she says she feels less anxious, less arthritic pain, much improved digestion and sleep, overall a feeling of better well being.

Thank you Phil! you have made a huge difference to my mum's life in coping during the grieving process.

Claire Rogers
I went to Phil for the first time a few months ago. I was in pain but sceptical about acupuncture, but after two sessions my pain was gone and could go back to work. I love to think that I didn't need to take any pills that could affect my liver health to kill the pain. Thank you so much Phil. I highly recommend Phil Carew Acupuncture.
Ivana Margerini

I went to see Phil with frozen shoulder as I'd heard acupuncture was effective in the treatment of the condition.  And it certainly was.  I did about 12 sessions with Phil and I really felt it helped a lot by reducing the amount of time I was in the "freezing" stage, alleviating the symptoms and loosening up the shoulder.  Using acupuncture in conjunction with physio helped enormously, and the holistic approach that Phil adopts helped me to be aware of what might be contributing to the condition - stress etc.  Phil is a truly caring person - she's good humoured, warm and very personable and I would highly recommend her to anyone, especially if you are new to acupuncture.


Absolute professional.  Symptoms relieved and felt so much better after just a few sessions.  Will most definitely return.

Jane O'Connor

Phil's acupuncture treatments have provided me with overall wellness and healing.  The mind and body feel invigorated after each appointment.  Phil's gentle and knowledgeable approach ensures one feels comfortable in reviewing focus and goals.  I look forward to each session and feeling renewed each time!  Thanks Phil!  Would highly recommend to anyone in need of self care!

Maria Fernanda Escobar

I have had 3 sessions so far and I'm very happy with the treatments and advice I get from Phil!  Acupuncture helps so many things,  I went to her for my neck and back and have also received treatments for other issues I didn't know I could!  Great welcoming experience!

Ciara Cullen

Just wanted to say that it was the best thing I have ever done to go to Phil's treatment rooms in Dalkey.  Just 4 weeks ago I was unable to walk very far without tripping up and was on medication for sciatica which was very debilitating - my confidence was gone.

But today just 4 weeks later, I rarely take any medication for my sciatica and I am walking much better with no trips or falls - It has been life changing for me - Thank you so much Phil!

I would advise anyone thinking about going to Phil for acupuncture not to wait,  you will feel better almost immediately!

Michael McGuinness

I literally fell in Phil's door with severe Long Covid 6 months ago. One of the most demoralising things about the early stages, was the sense from the medical community that nothing could be done. However the needles worked their magic, initially on my mood and sleep. Phil's knowledge of the condition and her kindness helped me begin to pace and recover. I still have a way to go and I have been able to build in other supports, including medical, but my weekly Acupuncture is a key part of my recovery. Many Thanks!  Nell
