Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
The ancient science of Traditional Chinese Medicine (which includes acupuncture) is highly effective in preventing illness and treating many issues including injury, stress, pain, emotional imbalances, skin problems, digestive troubles and hormonal issues. In addition to needling techniques, my style of acupuncture may also include moxibustion, cupping, electrostimulation, Chinese herb prescriptions and nutrition and lifestyle advice.
I offer a specialized treatment that is great for pain management or sports injuries: it combines acupuncture and massage in one session in order to fully relax the nervous system and achieve exponential results. We’ll start the treatment with an intake, then you’ll receive acupuncture treatment followed by a massage. The acupuncture is meant to ground, calm and center your nervous system so that you’ll receive an effective, targeted massage on a dramatically relaxed and open body. I offer 60, 75 and 90 minute sessions; more time means more massage.
Sports Medicine Acupuncture
I work with athletes and active people in San Francisco and around the Bay Area to get a handle on their injuries and help them to be faster, stronger and more flexible. Sports medicine acupuncture can help relieve pain, enhance athletic performance, relieve stress and balance emotions. In these treatments, I use a combination of acupuncture and massage to remove swelling, relax muscle spams, treat adhesions and heal other types of injuries. I’ve found that these techniques are very healing for so many of the athletes and helps them be at the cutting edge of their game.
Pain management is for people with reoccurring injuries or chronic pain from old sports injuries, car accidents, structural problems or other types of injuries.
