- by admin
Dublin has secured the first of two free acupuncture treatments for Irish residents.
The City of Dublin has awarded the first two acupuncture centres in the Republic a €1 million grant to improve the quality of life for patients with chronic conditions.
Key points:The second free acupuncture clinic will open in JanuaryThe City has committed to providing acupuncture to more than 40,000 Irish peopleThe first acupuncture clinic to open in the country will be in Dublin in January.
It is hoped the new facility will provide free acupuncture to people with chronic illnesses, and give them the tools to improve their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Dublin City Council (DC) Chairman John McConkey said the free acupuncture programme was part of a wider initiative to help improve the lives of the city’s people.
He said the two acupuncture clinics will be the first in Ireland to provide acupuncture to patients.
“We want to make sure that these services are available to as many people as possible, so the two centres will help us reach that goal,” Mr McConmac said.
“The two acupuncture facilities will provide the best possible care to the patients that we have to offer.”
Mr McConk said the city had committed to the delivery of acupuncture to all its residents by 2020.
“As part of the City’s commitment to deliver acupuncture services to all residents, we have agreed to support a new free acupuncture service in the city by the end of the year,” he said.
Mr McDonk said his priority was to make the city a more inviting place for people to live, and to make its infrastructure and services more accessible to those who have a disability or need assistance.
“At the same time we have been supporting the delivery and expansion of public transport, and we will continue to do so,” he added.
“So we are making sure we are providing the infrastructure and the services to people who are most in need.”
Mr Conk said a range of public and private sector organisations would be involved in the free healthcare clinic, which is the first free acupuncture centre to open on the island of Ireland.
“It’s a great opportunity for the city and for the citizens of Dublin to come together and have the best free acupuncture experience,” he concluded.
“For the first time in the history of acupuncture, a free acupuncture provider will be able to offer acupuncture services for people who have chronic conditions, and hopefully it will be a model for others to follow.”
Dublin has more than 60,000 people living with chronic disease.
