Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a comprehensive natural health care system that has been used in Asian countries for thousands of years to preserve health, diagnose, treat & prevent illness.  Sports Medicine Acupuncture incorporates principles from Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Sports Medicine to view the patient’s injury from a truly integrated perspective.

By inserting very fine needles into specific acupuncture points, we can influence the physiological functioning of the body.  Stimulation of these points activates the natural, self-healing abilities of the body.  We want to create the very best conditions for you to thrive!
