Sports Acupuncture is a specialized branch of acupuncture that addresses the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal injuries. It also enhances the performance and recovery of athletes at all levels. The approach of this style of acupuncture is to engage the body’s greatest healing potential by combining Western Medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This style of acupuncture is widely used by professional athletes as well as recreational fitness enthusiasts. Sports Acupuncture is not only a highly effective approach to treating injuries, it also helps with the prevention of future injuries. This is accomplished by increasing blood flow to muscles and tendons, reducing inflammation, releasing trigger points and relieving pain.
