ATP Resonance BioTherapy™
ATP Resonance BioTherapy™
ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ is a non-invasive and painless technique for treating pain by using low-level electrical currents. ATP’s various frequencies can be used to potentially reduce inflammation (swelling), repair tissue, and reduce pain.
Dry Needling is a classic acupuncture technique that has gained much popularity. It can release “ashi” points, or trigger points, to improve muscular elasticity, flexibility and provide pain relief. It is also known as acupuncture, trigger point dry needling or intramuscular manual therapy. Pain that has been experienced for years can sometimes be resolved in just a few sessions. This style is popular in our sports medicine and orthopedic treatment plans.
Cupping therapy is one of the oldest and most effective methods for releasing toxins and relieving pain. Also known as vacuum cupping, it is an excellent method to aid in athletic recovery, release tension and treat respiratory conditions as well.
Herbal Medicine & Supplements
Using daily supplements and herbal medicines can be a very effective addition to a health-focused lifestyle. Patented Chinese herbal formulas and pharmaceutical grade supplements can address patterns of imbalance that manifest in a variety of symptoms and complaints. The aims of herbal therapy and supplements are to help you regain balance in your mind-body and to strengthen your resistance to disease.
Ready to begin feeling like your best self?
“I feel a sense of calm that I did not know before my experience with Sarah’s acupuncture treatments. Her methods have eliminated the pain in my neck and back as well as the numbness in my hands/feet/lips, which are symptoms of severe anxiety. I couldn’t be happier about her work and how I feel!”
“Sarah is a competent diagnostician and zeroed in on the issues efficiently. In both cases she quickly designed and executed a Plan of Care for me. The experience is always pleasant and I consider her a wonderful resource.”
“When almost nothing was helping me with an intense leg pain, I found relief with an acupuncture treatment from Sarah. I ultimately invested in an entire treatment course of 9 more sessions. I would do it all again, if needed!”
“Sarah listens to you and your symptoms and puts together a customized plan to address your needs. She really works with you individually to get the best outcomes.”
