Acupuncture

Acupuncture is used to effectively treat sports injures, muscular and joint pain.

We offer two types of acupuncture: Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Dry Needling. 

Traditional Chinese acupuncture works on the principle that energy moves freely throughout a healthy body, but becomes blocked when there is a problem. The pain and illness which results is an indication that the body is out of balance. Very fine needles are inserted at strategic points along meridian lines to release blockages and restore healthy energy flow. 

Dry needling is a Western technique which identifies trigger points in the muscle, rather than working with meridian lines. By inserting a fine needle precisely into the source of muscular tension, the results can be immediate. 

We recommend acupuncture to complement our movement therapies, when applicable.
