Acupuncture for the Athlete

  • Speeds up recovery time during training or when injured
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Relaxes the muscles
  • Increases blood flow to an area
  • Reduce stress and boosts mood
  • Can reduce time in physical therapy

Specialized Procedures:
Very effective when working with musculoskeletal pain and injuries.

1) Neuromuscular Acupuncture and Trigger point therapy:
Proper needling of a myofascial trigger point will elicit a local twitch response (LTR), which is an involuntary spinal cord reflex in which the muscle fibers in the taut band of muscle contract. In turn this may activate endogenous opioids but releases and rests the muscle.

2) Electro Acupuncture Microcurrent:
This procedure can produce faster and more efficient healing, boosting ATP production in cells and more free amino acids for cellular repair.
