Sport Recovery Acupuncture

Treatments

Acupuncture

involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at specific points on your body.
It improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating those specific points. A select number of points will be chosen and stimulated depending on the patient’s condition and needs.

Electro-acupuncture

like the traditional practice of acupuncture, involves the
insertion of very thin needles at specific points but uses electricity (mild current) to enhance the benefits of this traditional therapeutic treatment.

Tuina bodywork

is a therapeutic form of massage used to remove blockages and keep the energy flowing through the body.
Various hand techniques in combination with acupressure points are used to enhance the healing process of the body.

Cupping

is a type of therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. This suction is thought to improve the flow of energy in the body and facilitate healing.

Gua Sha

is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine.
Modern research shows an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single treatment accounting for the immediate relief that patients feel from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, and wheeze.

Moxibustion

is the application of heat to a specific area of the body using an aromatic herb Artemesia vulgaris (mugwort).

Auricular acupuncture

Auricular Acupuncture is acupuncture on your ear.
The ear is composed of over 200 points, each of which can regulate bodily functions due to the connection with the nervous system.
