and The City Firm
CalmNYC is an immersive experience organized by Calm NYC and The City Firm to create a space for mental and physical reboot. It is a refuge to heal, providing treatments for PTSD, COVID-19 trauma, stress relief, rehabilitation with massage, acupuncture, and meditation. CalmNYC also proudly provide a treatment chair lounge at a range of approachable choices including ear seeds, distal points, TCM, auricular needling, a variety of modalities in massage and bodywork, or full treatment sessions.
CALM NYC’s interest in understanding over-stimulation, trauma and wellness amongst dense urban environments inspired CalmNYC, especially with the pandemic affecting and losing around 200,000 businesses and rattling the lives of so many more. Health practitioners, artists, and designers opened and started teaming up at the start of 2021.
