COVID-19 Update


As acupuncturists we have been waiting patiently for the news from our associations and government on when we can re-open our clinics.

Delighted to have this received this news last night, now the organising begins. 😊

Currently it is the shared opinion of the associations that we can open our clinics for ‘essential services’ for patients who do not have Covid-19 or symptoms of Covid-19.

For acupuncturists examples of ‘essential services’ would include:

  • Patients with severe pain
  • Patients whose chronic conditions have deteriorated or may deteriorate without treatment
  • Time dependent treatments – e.g. fertility treatments and pregnancy
  • Supporting the health and wellbeing of frontline workers

Below are my new hours for Navan, my Slane clinic is temporarily closed and will reopen later in the summer when the Ananda Centre opens back up. 🙌

Monday – 9am – 5.15pm (last appointment)

Tuesday – 1pm – 6pm

Thursday – 9am – 6.30pm

Friday – 9am – 12.45pm

I will be making some changes to my scheduling when I return to work on the 8th June as you can see from the reduced hours above to help accommodate the new safety procedures that are mentioned below.

⭐Appointments will be an hour long with a 15 min break between patients to disinfect and prepare the treatment room.

⭐You will be contacted the day before your appointment for a pre-treatment screening check, this measure is an effort to miminise the risk of the spread of Covid-19, if you have any symptoms or been in contact with anyone with a confirmed or suspected case in the last 14 days, I will reschedule the appointment.

⭐I will be asking all patients to wear masks and I will also be wearing a mask.

⭐Any cancellations within 24 hours will be charged a cancellation fee of 50%.

Please contact me if you have any queries and I will be in touch with all those who have been enquiring asap.

Again I want to thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Stay safe,
