Mixing Music and Medicine: Topical BioMedics, Inc. Supports The O+ Festival—a Three-day, Community-run Celebration of Music, Arts and Wellness

Share Article

Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream from Topical BioMedics, Inc. joins forces with the 0+ initiative – a grassroots, band-aid solution to making health care accessible to the creative community, many of whom do not have medical insurance coverage.

The 0+ Festival Oct 11-13 in Kingston, NY

We’re valuing everyone together – the doctors, musicians and the artists – for their contributions to the community.

At The 0+ Festival, taking place Oct 11-13 in Kingston, NY, participating artists exchange their contributions for health and wellness services from art-loving doctors, dentists, and other medical providers. Joe Concra, the co-founder of The O+ Festival, explains:

“It’s basically a barter. We’re exchanging the art of medicine for the value of art. We’re telling artists and musicians ‘We value you so much that in exchange for your talent, we’re giving you access to care.’ We’re valuing everyone together – the doctors, musicians and the artists – for their contributions to the community, and by doing that, you’re breaking down these walls.”

Topical BioMedics is proud to sponsor the three–day festival, helping to connect artisans with doctors, dentists, acupuncturists, yoga instructors, healers and other wellness practitioners. Topricin samples will also be provided at the festival’s on-site, pop-up clinic and Topricin will host a sampling information booth.

Since 1994, Topricin has helped relieve the aches and pains of musicians and artists alike. Musculoskeletal injuries (especially to hands) afflict 60% of all professional musicians. Topricin helps musicians play better…play longer…and play on. How? Specifically, Topricin helps:

  •     Improve range of motion, flexibility and dexterity;
  •     Rejuvenate and revitalize hands and fingers;
  •     Heal and prevent musculoskeletal injuries, pain and further damage;
  •     Lower back and shoulder pain, leg cramps, arthritis and carpal tunnel.

In fact, Topricin has recently become a must-have on tour. Notable musicians Beyonce, Usher, and Earth Wind & Fire have all requested boxes of Topricin to take on the road with them to use pre/post performance.

At this year’s 0+ Festival, Topricin will connect with top artists, including internationally known street muralist Gaia and artist-activist LMNOPi. Among the musical acts will be British space-rock legend Spiritualized, duo Buke and Gase (known for their homemade instruments), Simone Felice a founder of the Felice Brothers) with Simi Stone and her all-star band.

In addition to The Kingston, NY festive, The O+ Festival will be happening for the first time in San Francisco’s Mission Creek District Nov. 15-17. And, says founder Concra, “It’s just a matter of time before the idea catches on in even more cities…[The 0+ Festival] creates a bridge to access health care for artists. Community reassurance is our goal. We’re all here for each other.”
