  • Is Acupuncture painful?
    Acupuncture needles are a fine as a hair so the majority of time it is painless. Often you will feel a dull sensation, which is the desired effect. If we are doing motor point release of a muscle, the desired response is for the muscle to twitch, helping to reset the tight or shortened muscle.
  • Do you reuse needles?
    Never! All needles are sterile fresh out of the package and disposed of after use.
  • How do I prepare for the treatment?
    Bring clothes appropriate to what we are treating that day. Ex. if your knees are the issue, please refrain from skin tight jeans and a pair of shorts would be ideal!
  • What can I expect from the treatment?
    When treating chronic or complex health issues it often times will be a gradual improvement of your symptoms and overall health. Each person is different, someone could have dramatic results quickly and others may take some time. With sports acupuncture we aim to see improvements after each visit such as increased range of motion, ease of movement, and decreased signs/symptoms. Many patients report slight post-workout soreness and occasional bruising in both the area treated and the area of referred symptoms. This soreness typically lasts up to 24 hours following treatment.
  • What is dry needling?
    Dry needling is a medical style of acupuncture that involves identifying and inserting a needle into an active trigger point. This trigger point will typically release causing a muscle twitch or heavy sensation to the area. We have received adanced training on proper assessment and treatment of muscular disorders.
  • How many sessions do I need?
    You will often feel improvement from the very first session. However, because every patient case varies, timelines can be provided following an initial assessment. As a general rule of thumb, the following holds true: For more minor, non-chronic injuries or movement challenges, we can see dramatic improvement within 4-6 sessions. For more major or chronic injuries or movement issues, we ballpark around 10-12 sessions. For severe or long-term chronic issues, it may take up to 20 sessions to see a significant resolution of your symptoms.
  • What can acupuncture treat?
    Because of acupunctures inate ability to tap into the nervous system, it can help modulate or reduce pain, calm the nervous system, regulate the complex systems of the body and allow the right environment for healing. It can be used to treat sports injuries, acute/chronic pain, migraines, sleep issues, neuropathies, menstruation issues, stress and essentually anything that involves our nervous sytem. Thats a lot of stuff.
