All acupuncture treatments are provided by Samantha Lovat, Certified Athletic Therapist, to facilitate the attainment of optimal health and well being.


Acupuncture is among the oldest and safest healing practices in the world. Based on the concept of Qi, or ‘vital energy’, your health depends on the balance of energy flow throughout your body.  Emotional and Physical stress and / or injury, create an imbalance within the body that can manifest as pain and dysfunction.  Acupuncture can restore balance and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points in the body.

Today, Acupuncture is powerfully effective in rehabilitation, pain management and stress reduction.  At Thrive, the Certified Athletic Therapist incorporates Acupuncture into your treatment plan to help improve and maintain overall well being.

Dedicated to enhancing and restoring energy, balance, and function naturally, Acupuncture will stimulate the body’s fluid movement and immune response to promote healing.
