Specializing in acupuncture and exercise science, Chris integrates acupuncture into pre and post physical therapy or fitness training for pain modulation, speedy recovery, and enhanced performance. Clients can choose to just focus on one-on-one exercise therapy/ training, acupuncture, or a combination of both. Other modalities that he uses in therapy are acu-taping, manual body work (structural integration), herbal therapy (MediHerb), nutrition supplementation, cupping, guasha, and stretching techniques (mobilization, PNF, and distraction). The exercise component is one-on-one fitness management, focusing on strength and conditioning, post physical rehab – exercise therapy, sport specific plyometrics, weight loss, core strengthening, and functional training. The acupuncture component focuses on sport injuries, myofascial pain, peripheral neuropathy, arthritis, facial rejuvenation, stress, smoking cessation, addiction detoxification program, weight management, and sport recovery and performance.
