Acupuncture is a holistic practice. Regardless of your symptoms and the pivot-point of your health issue (physical, emotional or chemical), we treat the entire body as whole unit. This is why many acupuncturists do not formally specialize in one particular area of medicine in the same way that Western doctors tend to. However, acupuncturists do often have fields of expertise, and for me, working with athletes and active people is my passion.
In addition to my acupuncture schooling, I have been a professional massage therapist for over fifteen years, so the type of treatment I give often involves some combination of acupuncture and massage. This dual-pronged approach has been very effective for treating my active and athletic patients.
Some of my specialties include providing relief from these injuries:
Herniated/bulging discs, sciatica/radiculopathy, nerve pain, extreme muscle spasms, strains, sprains, swelling, inflammation, tendonitis, muscle weakness, plantar fasciitis, shoulder, neck, low back, hip, knee, ankle and foot injuries. Read more about my services.
