Hood 2 River Relay - Acupuncture and Tuina massage help athletes recover

This last weekend, May 31, 2014 Charles Cannon, LAc from Columbia River Acupuncture worked alongside the EMT tent treating athletes as they finished the first-ever, multi-disciplined relay event. Many athletes appreciated Charlie’s treatments, as he gave both acupuncture and massage to those with sore/tight and overworked bodies.

The event, which started atop Mt. Hood Meadows, had individuals and teams complete a series of transitions and stages including; downhill skiing/snowboarding, Nordic skiing, mtn. biking, road biking, running and ending with a kayak/SUP race to the finish at the Hood River Marina. Best times finished in just over 3 hours and competitors enjoyed a fun after party with music by Tony Smiley, beer by Full Sail, and food from volunteers at the Hood River Lions Club.

Columbia River Acupuncture would like to thank Breakaway Promotions for including us in this year’s event and look forward to working with you again next year!
