I’ve pushed my body to its limits with nearly 20 years in the NHL. Todd helped me by working on some tight, over-trained muscles. Todd’s deep muscle and fascia work also helped get me through some tough pre-season training. I would recommend Todd to family, friends and team mates.IAN LAPERRIÈRE
Todd has an ability to identify and work out small problems before they become big problems. Regular treatments are as important to my training and injury prevention as any exercises I do at the gym or track. I’d recommend Todd to any athlete who wants to train consistently and without pain.ERIN DONOHUE
I have been battling a shoulder injury for almost two years. My training in the sport of fitness was suffering and I was mentally feeling very defeated. After trying just about everything, I was referred by a friend to see Todd. After only two visits my shoulder no longer was an issue in training. My only regret about visiting Todd is that I did not find him sooner. I would recommend him to anyone looking to fix an occurring problem or hoping to prevent one in the future. Todd has played a huge role in my success as a Crossfit athlete.KELLY BAKER

From back injuries, to hips, shoulders and more, Todd has yet to let me down and has treated each with the same great results consistently. I feel like a “new” person when I walk out of his office! My muscles, joints and tendons are ready for some more action on the mat!BRAD DADDIS
After one session, I was hooked. No other healing method gave me such immediate relief. After completing all ten treatments, I felt amazing. It was as if my body breathed for the first time in years…ALYSON PRAY WARD

How To Understand the Benefits of Mount Laurel, NJ Acupuncture Services
Let’s get a bit more technical now about how acupuncture actually works…
Acupuncture near Mount Laurel, NJ is a system of complementary medicine that involves the skilled insertion of fine needles into specific areas of the body. It used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Acupuncture has it’s origins in ancient China and is now widely practiced in the West. More people in the world have been treated with acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) than with western medicine.
Fortunately, the Acupuncture near Mount Laurel, NJ have years of experience in these services.
There are many different styles of acupuncture although these can be divided into two groups: Traditional and Biomedical.
The Two Styles of Mount Laurel, NJ Acupuncture Services: Traditional and Biomedical
Traditional: According to traditional Chinese medical theory, there are acupuncture points that are located on meridians through which qi vital energy flows. Like rivers, these meridians circulate the flow of qi throughout the body. Qi nourishes, supports, warms, and moves the body. Like a dam in a river, the flow of qi can become blocked in the meridians. Needling the acupuncture points allows the practitioner to clear these areas of reduced circulation in the body. Improving the flow of qi in the meridians creates health and vitality, reduction in pain, and feelings of well-being.
Acupuncture remains controversial among some Western medical doctors and scientists even though there is excellent research supporting that traditional acupuncture can be an effective treatment for many conditions.
Biomedical: Biomedical acupuncture, also called dry needling, is a more modern modality. It does not share any common foundation with traditional Chinese acupuncture. This system uses a western framework of biomedical principles like neuro-anatomically defined pathways and neuro-trigger point systems for treatment. It can be used for pain management, trauma rehabilitation, and can be helpful for health and stress management as well.
The western scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the perception of pain, or they will stimulate the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system. The improved balance produced by acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities, and promotes physical and emotional well-being.
Combination: Many of the traditional acupuncture points and treatments have been proven effective over time. Combining biomedical acupuncture with traditional acupuncture and modalities like cupping, guasha and e-stim creates powerful treatments for pain relief, functional improvement, and health and wellness.
