Sports Acupuncture

rock climbingWhether you are a weekend warrior or Olympic contender – Sports Acupuncture can help you perform your best!

I have been an enthusiastic athlete throughout my life -from team sports to climbing, martial arts, and skiing. I understand the physical and psychological requirements of today’s athletes. Being hopelessly addicted myself to my sports, I know how frustrating it is to be sidelined by injury. My mission as a sports acupuncturist is to ensure that my clients are uninhibited by injury, to keep you in your game and physically active as long as possible, and to promote peak athletic performance. Having the good fortune to have trained with a top Sports acupuncturist in the field Whit Reeves, I utilize a combination of acupuncture, massage, therapeutic exercise and supplementation to get results fast!

How can Sports Acupuncture help you?

Get back in the game by treating injuries
An injury is a sure fire way to limit performance and create misery. Sprained joints and strained muscles, tendons, and ligaments are acute injuries that are quickly treated using acupuncture, massage, manual therapies, and supplements. These techniques can be used alongside western medicine without worry of negative interactions.

Increase speed, strength and endurance
Chronic injuries will slow you down, create weakness and lessen endurance. Problems like plantar fasciitis, arthritis, low back and neck pain, inflamed knees and shoulders, etc will effect performance and take the joy out sports. Sports acupuncture and its adjunct therapies can treat these problems effectively.

Improve recovery rates
Whether training for “the big comp” or keeping yourself at peak physical performance; fatigue and exhaustion will weaken the immune system and lessen energy levels. Sports acupuncture has protocols to support these systems and speed up recovery to get you back in the game.

Optimize peak performance
A unique aspect of sports acupuncture is that it can address the mind as much as the body. Acupuncture is very helpful for calming the nervous system and focusing the mind, making it a great way to deal with competition jitters. It is a safe and natural way to keep anxiety and nervousness from effecting performance.
