AcuMediZen Acupuncture & Sports Medicine

The Premier Acupuncture and Wellness Clinic in Rochester, NY

Charlie Sylvester, L.Ac.
Licensed Acupuncturist/Owner

I opened AcuMediZen back in 2012 and practiced for a number of years as a general practitioner, treating stress, anxiety, digestive issues, pain, men’s/women’s health and much more!

Over time, I began to recognize more of a want and need for the athletes in and around Rochester, as I was approached on numerous occasions by high school, amateur, semi-professional, and professional athletes for alternative methods of recovery, pain management, and athletic enhancement. As a result, I decided to take matters into my own hands and what resulted was AcuMediZen Acupuncture & Sports Medicine.

“Great experience at AcuMediZen Acupuncture & Sports Medicine! Charlie is wonderful, very knowledgeable, and makes you feel amazing! For my first time ever getting acupuncture, I felt relieved and very comfortable when seeing Charlie. He takes his time with you and explains everything thoroughly. It was a relaxing experience and very worth it.”
