‘THE “Wellbeing Way”, which will be launched by Mayor Daniel Butler on Friday, April 15, is a dedicated regeneration health project that will offer a range of treatments at affordable rates for financially vulnerable groups.

Based at 15 Nicholas Street in the city centre, specialist clinics include sessions in psychotherapy, naturopathy, trauma-informed therapy, osteopathy, musculoskeletal therapy, reflexology, meditation and nutrition.

It will also provide a new central hub for Limerick ‘not for profit’ organisation ABC For Mental Health which offers free initiatives and events in mental health promotion every May.

Mayor Daniel Butler said he was happy to be associated with the holistic regeneration of Limerick City and Northside.

“This area historically had healers and holistic physicians in times gone by and it’s great to see that tradition being revived.

“This project couldn’t have come at a better time especially with the impact that the Covid pandemic has had on families and communities in Limerick,” he added.

Amanda Clifford of ABC for mental health said the ‘Wellbeing Way’ would ensure affordable access to outreach programmes in expert holistic healthcare for people in the Northside of the city.

“Our aim is to ensure access to financially vulnerable communities as often these therapies are out of the financial reach of many. Our experts ensure total health optimisation, advice, scans and clinics at affordable prices,” she explained.
