Acupuncture for Athletes

While Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can address a wide range of health issues, our Tempe acupuncture clinic plays a special role in working with athletes to get them back on the field, in the ring, or in the sky.  With my own experience as a professional skydiver, martial-arts instructor and competitor, mountain biker, and yoga teacher, I’m no stranger to the challenges unique to competitive athletes when it comes to keeping them injury free and in top condition to compete at the highest level.  Our combination therapy of acupuncture, cupping, and cold laser therapy are incredibly effective to both reducing inflammation from injuries as well as accelerating tissue repair.

​Knee Repair Using Acupuncture and Cold Laser Therapy

Knee damage seems almost inevitable at one time or another in an athletes career.  Fortunately, our acupuncture and cold laser therapy combined therapies can be incredibly powerful to not only reduce knee pain, but also reverse cartilage damage and increase functionality.

​Benefits for Athletes

I have also spent considerable time developing techniques using acupuncture and cold laser therapy to help athletes improve their performance.  Our treatments can...


-Reduce the effects of muscular fatigue

-Reduce swelling from repetitive stress injuries and overuse 


-Reduce the effects of cardio-vascular fatigue


-Decrease muscle soreness, increase range of motion


-Delay the onset of burn-out from over-training


-Reduce the debilitative effects of stress and performance anxiety
