Whether you are a professional athlete, weekend warrior or somewhere in between, you will receive an integrative approach to treatment, combining functional exercise, core retraining, acupuncture and manual therapy,
to get you back to your activity.
Acupuncture allows us to access the nervous system to more effectively restore motor control and reduce pain. In combination with proper exercise and soft tissue mobility, neurofunctional acupuncture is an asset to rehabilitation and performance.
Our inside is a reflection of the outside. When our metabolic system is functioning at its best, we have greater energy, focus and capacity to repair from physical and environmental stressors. I have partnered with a company I trust to keep me functioning at my peak performance and am committed to helping others achieve the same.
