Our natural health facility also specializes in methods for healing sports injuries or pain relief. We use a combination of acupuncture and massage that works to help the body to naturally heal itself. Whether you are training for a race, getting ready for a big game, or just an avid fitness enthusiast, we can help you! We also have methods that can improve your performance and prevent you from getting injured while training.
Acupuncture can help to promote healing to the area of injury but also increase the blood flow to prevent the reooccurance of injury. It works to help an athlete get back in the game and continue to train during and after the injury has occured.
Acupuncture is used in the treatment of injuries and musculoskeletal, and is often effective for relieving muscle pain, spasms, tendon and ligament problems, and improving circulation to tense or injured tissues.
“Many times athletes will train for a race or event and they will injury themselves right before the big event. It’s my job to help them work through that injury and prevent reoccurance. However, if I can get to them before the injury I can help them boost their performance levels and not let that injury happen.” Katie Edwards, Licensed Acupuncturist
Yoga is also a great way for athletes to incorporate into their training. It not only helps to build strength endurance but it moves the body in ways you don’t normally do during cardiovascular or weight bearing exercises. It lengthens and elongates the muscles to promote flexbility so you can raise your level of performance.
We offer yoga classes or private lessons.
