Treatments & Clients
How long are the treatments?
Sessions are between 60-90 minutes long depending on the condition being treated and the work necessary to address the main issues.
What type of conditions do you treat?
I mainly treat clients with sports-related injuries, post-surgical pain, old injuries that continue to be painful, and/or musculoskeletal pain of unknown origin.
How long have you been doing acupuncture?
I’ve been a licensed acupuncturist since 2011 after graduation from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
Does acupuncture hurt?
For some people, it hurts. For others it doesn’t. The needles are very tiny compared to what you would see at the doctor’s office. If you are new to acupuncture, I’m happy to work with you to make sure you are comfortable with the needles before we begin a treatment plan.
What style of acupuncture do you perform?
I perform the traditional Chinese acupuncture. It seems as though PT’s are using the term dry needling to separate themselves from acupuncture. These practitioners are not doing anything different. Dry needling is the same thing as traditional Chinese acupuncture.
Do you offer relaxation massage?
None of my massages are spa type massages. I work on musculoskeletal issues that cause pain by manipulating soft tissue. This type of massage can be painful in the moment, but is beneficial in the long run to remove adhesions, improve function, and increase blood flow. For most of my clients, they feel a mix of relaxation and invigoration after my treatments. But, I do not perform standard relaxation massages.
What type of massage do you offer?
I have a blend of styles that include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point, ART, & Chinese Tui Na. I will adapt to what your body needs at the time of treatment.
Do you offer massage alone (i.e. without acupuncture)?
Yes. I will perform therapeutic massage for specific pain conditions, or pre-event massage to prepare athletes for competition. The price is the same.
