Acupuncture is an ancient therapeutic technique rooted in traditional Chinese medicine. Practitioners insert fine needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow, or "qi," along meridians. This stimulation promotes balance and harmony within the body, which can alleviate a variety of physical and mental health issues.
Prolotherapy is a complementary or alternative medical treatment that aims to stimulate the body's natural healing processes and strengthen damaged or weakened ligaments and tendons. It is a technique used by many professional athletes.
Steven is, IMO, one of THE best healers in Boulder. I'm a trail runner and I have had chronic plantar fasciitis for the past 3 years. I tried many different modalities including PTs, massage, etc, and Steven has been the only one who truly helped me. He also helped me with runner's knee and got me back on the trail quickly. He is kind and compassionate and really knows his stuff. I think he's also one of the best acupuncturists around, his technique is so gentle, and really helps with stress management.
I went in with terrible tendon related pain in my arm. It was my first acupuncture experience and I had no idea what to expect. After two treatments (and, granted, some much needed rest) the pain went away completely. I would not hesitate recommending Steven to others.
Steven is the best sports acupuncturist in Boulder. Period. I have been to them all and Steven has everything right IMO. Let me explain why I think he is the best. He helped cure my shin splints and upper hamstring tendonosis from training for a 100 miler that had been nagging at me for months with no end in sight even after multiple visits to other practices.
