Sports MEdicine acupucnture

about

Sports Medicine Acupuncture, or Orthopedic Acupuncture, is a specialty branch of acupuncture that addresses the treatment and prevention of sports-related injuries. The approach behind Sports Medicine 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 Medicine 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.

If you are interested in a full body treatment consisting of both acupuncture and cupping, please book the Extended Acupuncture Treatment. This session may include work on all major areas of the body, including the quads, hamstrings, calves, back, neck and shoulders. The treatment will be catered to your specific needs but will also support all areas of your body that affect how you perform for your particular sport.
