How can Oak Point improve your athletic performance?

At Oak Point Health & Vitality Centre, we’ve had the pleasure of working with wide array of athletes. We see endurance runners, sprinters, crossfitters, body builders, and rugby players -- to name just a few. This unique blend of patients has given us a deeper understanding of what each sport demands and thus, we’ve been able to create effective methods for athletes not only to become pain-free and heal faster, but also to improve their athletic performance afterwards.

Simply put, a holistic approach is required to keep athletes operating at 100% capacity. A combination of Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, alignment techniques, and kinesio taping is the ideal and the staff at Oak Point excels in incorporating these modalities. We have a proven tack record of creating wellness programs for those who want to WIN.

Acupuncture

  • reduces pain signals to the brain
  • increases the blood, oxygen, and nutrients flow to injured tissues
  • improves muscle activity -- especially when combined with a light, comfortable electric current

Massage Therapy

  • flushes out lactic acid and other waste products from muscles
  • improves range of motion and mobility
  • improves circulation

Alignment Techniques

  • improves posture
  • reduces risk of injury
  • a properly aligned body moves more effectively, thus reducing wasted energy

Kinesio Taping

  • facilitates healing process
  • reduces muscle spasms
  • decompresses injured tissues

These are just some of the benefits professional and amateur athletes receive when they get treatments at Oak Point. Remember, the best time to start a wellness program is when you’re pain-free, in order to continue feeling great!
