How Does Acupuncture Work?
During treatment, small disposable needles pierce the skin in specific areas. These thin needles help stimulate the flow of Qi (life force) and blood flow to areas that need healing. Unlike many traditional forms of sports therapy treatment, acupuncture is non-invasive and has very few side effects.
- Stimulates the body’s own pain-relieving chemicals.
- Reduces inflammation by causing blood vessel dilation.
- Encourages the relaxation of muscle fibers.
- Facilitates proper blood and oxygen flow.

Your therapist may also want to incorporate other complementary TCM treatments into your rehabilitation plan, such as cupping and Tui Na massage. We offer a wide range of therapies, from traditional chiropractic adjustments to body optimizing nutritional counseling and energy balancing bodywork.
