Aine Delaney SRN is a nurse and midwife, and an experienced acupuncturist.
Her nurse training was in the Mater Misericordiae Hospital, Dublin, and while working in the gynaecology ward she developed an interest in this area of nursing.
Later while living in South Africa with her husband, having working in the local mining hospital, she did her midwifery training in Paardekraal Hospital, Krugersdorp.
Returning to Ireland she then worked in St Mary's Hospital in the Phoneix Park, Dublin and later in a private nursing home in Glenageary.
Her experience in nursing led her further into patient care as she developed an interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and she qualified as an acupuncturist after a three year diploma with the Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland in Dublin. She then worked in a hospital in Nanjing, China and obtained a Licentiate in Acupuncture and a certificate in Tuina Chinese massage.
After qualifying, she established a private acupuncture clinic in Blackrock, Dublin. During this time she was also rearing her family until her husband's job required her and their three children to move to Toronto, Canada for some years and subsequently to Rockford, near Chicago.
While living in the USA, she graduated from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine and became registered with the NCCAOM( USA register for qualified acupuncturists)
