In the hands of a well-trained practitioner, acupuncture-dry needling and related manual therapies have a much broader application beyond pain relief and sports injuries.  We also provide care to support overall wellness and promote vitality at any age.  Our holistic clinic also provides aesthetic dry needling, micro-needling and soft laser treatments for facial rejuvenation, wrinkle and scar reduction along with skin toning and tightening.  

See Dr. Mick's blog for more information and short videos about treatment of various conditions.  Our clinic treats a wide variety of pain and sports injuries using dry needling, soft laser, photobiomodulation, neuro-muscular myofascial therapies, shockwave therapy, fascia abrasion therapy, cupping, ultrasound, infra-red therapy, electrical stimulation and more. . .


We use Functional Integrative Nutrition and Traditional Chinese Medicine to address various health and wellness concerns.  CBD infused hemp massage oils and salves may be added to therapies for enhanced healing and pain relief.
