Have an affinity toward bygone Americana relics? Need to relieve some stress, but find yourself too busy to even begin to think about decompressing? Acupuncturist Christina Fish, practitioner and founder of Silver Current Acupuncture, is using that combination to deliver relief in her 31-foot Airstream rather than the cupcakes, pizza or other wares Durhamites are used to receiving from the iconic trailers.
“My husband and I rented an Airstream for a weekend and had such a wonderful time [that] we decided we wanted to buy one of our own,” Christina says. “It was shortly after that, as I was leaving work to go to one of my acupuncture appointments, that the need for a mobile acupuncture business dawned on me. As soon as the idea popped into my head, everything felt right about the decision.”
So Christina sent her Airstream to Capital City Customs, where Dan and Lisa Matthews have been working to renovate the space and turn it into an acupuncture clinic for the past year.
“People are so busy that sometimes simply taking care of ourselves is seen as a luxury and not a necessity,” Christina says. “If I can remove one hurdle by making the access to acupuncture a bit easier, I have accomplished what I set out to do.”
Christina adds that she’s confident in her business venture, especially due to her location.
“I love the people this city attracts,” Christina says. “The energy is electric and exudes vitality. I couldn't think of a more perfect place to open a mobile acupuncture clinic."
Silver Current will travel to you for groups of 4-6 people and serves the whole Triangle area. Call Christina at 919-730-7886 or email her here. Or, set up an individual appointment at 1201 Shepherd St.
