MARA Fertility Acupuncture Clinic:- Clinic Founder, Fertility Acupuncture Specialist & mother of three.

Linda Ryan

BA, Lic. TCM, CH

“Experiencing fertility issues can bring up lots of questions, plenty of self-doubt & leave you feeling isolated, vulnerable & frustrated.

I know because I had my own difficulty getting pregnant.

Hi, I’m Linda Ryan, Fertility Acupuncturist & mother of three.

Having overcome my own fertility issues is what drives me to help women like you to achieve the results that I made happen for myself.”

Linda Ryan, B.A., Lic. TCM, CH

Linda Ryan was born in New York. Linda has been practising Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture in Ireland for over 15 years now. Her interest in acupuncture for fertility enhancement was sparked by her own experience of fertility difficulties & the ultimate success to which she credits acupuncture for infertility. Years ago Linda also recognised the vital need to reduce the stress associated with infertility & trained in Hypnosis, Mindfulness & Meditiation to create a complete Mind Body Fertility Programme. She lives in Co. Kildare with her husband & 3 children.

Over the years Linda has become a trusted authority in Ireland in the field of Fertility Acupuncture.  Linda has been referred to as a Leader in the field of Fertility Acupuncture starting from when she & a colleague were the first 2 acupuncturists in Ireland to make the leap to specialising in fertility acupuncture & opened acupuncture clinics that only treat fertility.  Linda’s clinic has stood the test of time & to this day continues to only treat fertility.  Linda has developed pioneering fertility acupuncture treatment programmes & enjoys educating other acupuncturists.  Linda has developed a network of trusted acupuncturists, nutritionists & other reputable therapists that she is happy to refer you to because she is confident in their level of skills & ethics.

We understand the need for keeping your fertility issues confidential & we will never ask you to expose yourself by “liking” us on Facebook or other social media. We don’t even have a facebook page (a conscious decision, but bad marketing we’ve been told) However, we made that choice because we recognise & prioritise your need for confidentiality. We don’t even have signs outside our clinics that mention fertility acupuncture (yes, that’s even more bad marketing), but your need for confidentiality is more important and we want you to be able to walk through our doors without feeling self conscious that someone might see you & assume you have fertility problems.

Linda doesn’t just have a special interest in fertility acupuncture, she is passionately dedicated to helping you achieve your dream of having a family which is why she only focuses on fertility. Clinic Director & Fertility Acupuncturist Linda Ryan knows first hand about what it’s like trying to conceive: When you are trying to conceive, it comes to a point where you feel like the most important thing in your life is to have a baby, material things become less important, other things don’t seem to matter as much.  This is what drove Linda to concentrate only on fertility and what has led her to opening up an exclusive Fertility Acupuncture Clinic.  It is also the very foundation of the success of her clinic which leads to results and creating families.   Linda is proud to have set a standard of practice excellence in Ireland for utilising acupuncture for infertility.  As such, Linda regularly combs through the latest research in fertility & she stays up to date with the latest and current IVF treatment protocols.  Many years ago, Linda completed all the requirements for the Zita West Acupuncture Network & the Acupuncture Fertility Network..
