Boise’s Top Sports Acupuncture Specialists, Spring Acupuncture & Wellness

Last updated August 28, 2020 by Totally Boise

Spring Acupuncture & Wellness specializes in Sports Acupuncture, which does much more than simply take your pain away. This advanced method of acupuncture optimizes neuromuscular function for athletic performance and healthy movement.

Sports Acupuncture draws from functional anatomy. The assessment process includes range of motion testing, orthopedic exams, muscle function testing, and palpation to identify the injured tissue. Specific points and techniques are used to aid muscle function restoration based on those findings.

For an athlete, this method can help activate your muscles fully for better performance, create a healthy balance between flexibility and strength, and keep inflammation from intense training in check.

3 Ways Spring Acupuncture & Wellness Can Benefit Your Lifestyle

1. Relieves Strained Muscles

Boise area residents are known to be extremely active. Boise ranked as one of the best bicycling cities in the U.S. (Bicycling, Thrillist). Members of the community continue to find new ways to explore Idaho while staying active outdoors. While physical activity is a great thing, it can cause chronic pain throughout the body as someone ages. Acupuncturist Dean Campbell told Totally Boise that acupuncture can relieve strained muscles and pain from golfing, running, biking, or any other sports activity.

2. Boosts Immunity with Custom Chinese Herbal Medicine

In addition to acupuncture, Spring Acupuncture & Wellness offers Chinese Herbal Medicine. Depending on the patient's needs, Dean customizes each herbal blend. Sarah, Dean’s wife and business partner, has experienced the benefits of taking herbal formulas for her frequent allergy and sinus headaches. Herbal formulas can boost your immune system, help you recover from colds, upper respiratory issues, digestive problems, and improve cardiovascular health.

3. Decreases Stress and Anxiety

Spring Acupuncture & Wellness has a few different ways to decrease stress and anxiety in patients. Acupuncture is a great way to release tension in different areas of the body.

“Many people leave the table after 30 minutes, feeling as though they got 5 hours of sleep,” said Sarah Campbell. This is because acupuncture puts your nervous system in a parasympathetic state, which is the opposite of being on red alert.

Spring Acupuncture & Wellness is one of the few places that offers another useful treatment, Tibetan Foot Soaks. This treatment allows patients to relax and increases blood circulation and reduces pain. Tibetan Foot Soaks are a great solution for anyone who’s on their feet all day, or has foot pain.

Custom Care Plans: Safe & Effective

Spring Acupuncture & Wellness has a unique assessment process that gets to the root of their client’s musculoskeletal issues and allows athletes to stay at the top of their game. The best part? Acupuncture is an all-natural and safe way to relieve pain and stress. In fact, the AMA now recommends acupuncture over opioids for pain relief.
