The Indochina Sino-Amercian Community Center atop 36 Rivington Street (aka 170 Forsyth) will soon welcome a new neighbor below. Formerly a corner warehouse occupied by Lucky Fish NY, the ground level will change use from a commercial operation to that of an “integrated medical facility.” One that focuses on mental and physical health.

Evolve Health + Wellness has been quietly working on the build-out these last few months. There wasn’t any indication except for some brown paper in the window. This new Lower East Side clinic specializes in East Asian Medicine, and offers a suite of services including acupuncture, herbal therapy, Tui Na, and nutritional counseling.

“Our facility has been built from the ground up specifically for patient care and with sustainability in mind,” co-founder Nini Mai tells us in an email. To the layperson, that means using reclaimed wood beams and felled trees, tankless in-line water heaters, and a highly efficient HVAC system. “The lights in the ceilings, the boards on the floors, and everything in between has been consciously chosen in order to create the healthiest environment possible for everyone, even those who may never step foot into our clinic.”

Evolve Heath + Wellness is slated to begin service May 1 (next Thursday). The grand opening, however, is two weeks later with the requisite party. And they’re now accepting appointments for May and beyond.
