Dear Acupuncture For Athletes Clients,
Our office will be closed until the spread of Covid-19 is no longer a risk to our community. In accordance with New York City Department of Health recommendations, please stay home even if you do not feel sick at this time and only go out for essential tasks. We all need to stay home in order to not unwittingly transmit disease and subsequently overwhelm our healthcare system capacity.
We really look forward to a time when we can get back to business as usual. Until then, our hope is that you and your families stay healthy and safe. If you are anxious or feeling isolated, you are welcome to reach out to us anytime to maintain connection. We may also be able to answer questions about how to manage injuries from home. Please call or text us at 917.300.1019. Lastly, please take breaks from media consumption and allow your nervous system to regulate each day. This will help you to maintain your own wellbeing.
Colleen Canyon, MS, L.Ac.
Moxibustion is the stimulation of acupuncture points using heat, which is generated from the burning of the herb Mugwort (Artemisia), on or near the skin. Moxibustion creates warmth where it is needed and strengthens the activity of the Blood.
Commonly used for back pain, joint pain and upper respiratory problems, cupping is the application of suction to the surface of the body. Cups are applied to the back or other affected areas, and can be left comfortably in place along with the acupuncture needles for the duration of the treatment.
