Sports Acupuncture has progressed massively in recent years with greater integration between traditional acupuncture and western anatomical understanding. Properly licensed acupuncturists specialising in sports acupuncture learn to integrate western anatomy for the best outcome. (Look for Lic.Ac and then evidence of ongoing sports education). Educators such as Colorado-based Whitfield Reaves have really raised the bar with their specialised knowledge and training programmes.
Emma is a licensed acupuncturist and ITEC Sports Massage therapist and completed post-grad training in sports acupuncture with Kevin Young at CICM Reading, and is also currently continuing her studies with the sports acupuncture online programme with Whitfield Reaves online seminars. Emma's approach is to treat sports injuries with acupuncture and integrate manual techniques as appropriate to the specific injury.
