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.”

How Acupuncture Can Improve Lung Health

The health of our lungs isn’t necessarily talked about a lot when general health is discussed. Typically, cardiovascular health, chronic pain, cholesterol and stroke risk tend to be the more common topics. Many don’t think about lung health until there is a problem and then improving it becomes priority number one.
