Last September 18, SIFCare conducted a free acupuncture outreach program at Baranggay Tiawe and the Sinag Kalinga Foundation in the Municipality of Lucban, Quezon. A total of 35 patients were treated in Baranggay Tiawe including their Baranggay Chairman Alejandro Faller while another 20 patients were treated at Sinag Kalinga composed of both the care givers and the elderly.
The program included music meditation for relaxation, a discussion on the health benefits of acupuncture, acupuncture treatment and snacks were served. It was well received by both communities so SIFCare will be back more often.
It was such a wonderful and heart warming experience to see participants being relieved of their stress and physical aches. Baranggay Chairman Faller commented, “Thank you SIFCare, you are the first organization to visit our baranggay and introduce acupuncture, it really helps a lot!”
