Affordable, Community Acupuncture Comes to Beacon.
In a unique collaboration between the worlds of art and health, Hudson Valley Community Acupuncture will begin offering their services at Studio 502, an artist’s studio and gallery, at 502 Main Street in Beacon, NY. Beginning on Monday, March 18, HVCA will offer sliding-scale, group setting, acupuncture treatments every Monday night thereafter from 5-8pm.
“Studio 502 is an ideal space for ‘Community’ acupuncture” says acupuncturist Evan Schwartz, L.Ac. He adds “With it’s high ceilings, wide open space, soft lighting and beautiful works of art lining the walls, this gallery provides a serene space for this ancient Chinese healing modality.”
‘Community’ acupuncture is a grassroots movement of acupuncturists with over 300 clinics nationwide (and growing!). Their mission is to create access to traditional
Chinese medicine by removing the barrier of cost. They do this by simply treating in a group setting. HVCA charges on a non-income dependent sliding scale of only $20-$40. The patient decides how much they can afford. Treatments occur in a quiet common room while you rest in a comfortable recliner. They use points on the scalp, neck and below the elbows and knees to treat the entire body, so there’s no need to undress – just remove your shoes and roll up your pants and sleeves.
Acupuncture can even address back pain by treating points on the wrists and ankles. Many clients of Community acupuncture simply come to relax and de-stress from their busy lives.
Studio 502 features the art work of Maria Lago. Maria’s abstract landscapes are large, deeply textured pieces. “I am interested in our origins, in pre-mythological man and his integration into the surrounding world. This concern is present at the beginning of all of my paintings, whether they depict a landscape, an animal, or a studio interior.” writes Maria. “This is really an ideal pairing” adds Schwartz, “It’s the perfect meeting of fine healing arts with fine arts”.
