General info

Dr Brendan Cleary Ph.D., D.Ac.

Acupuncture is a traditional form of Eastern medicine that is practiced throughout the world. Traditional acupuncture treatment consists of specific assessment of a patients health, followed by insertion of very fine needles at specific points on the body depending on the patients needs.

The insertion of needles at precisely defined acupoints has two principle effects. Firstly, acupuncture stimulates nerves, which transmit electrical impulses to the spinal cord, brain and to the diseased area. Secondly, it has been shown that acupuncture releases chemical substances from the brain centers and pituitary gland.

Moments in History

This is the location of the second brick house in Georgetown which was demolished in the early 1980's. It was built by George Kennedy for his son. The building was later used as the Georgetown Police Headquarters. Kennedy's own house stood on a lot just across the street.
