Community Acupuncture for Pain Management is Open This Week!

Chronic and Acute Pains, Say Goodbye!

I am very excited to offer a community pain management clinic starting this Saturday in Truckee, CA.  Over the years I have seen thousands of patients who have sought acupuncture for treatment of their pain.  This can be anything from acute athletic/sports sprains, strains, contusions, and fractures to chronic pain issues like herniated discs, sciatica, shoulder impingements, back pain, knee pain, tendonitis, degenerative arthritis, etc.  I can confidently say that 90% or more of patients (when following the prescription course, dietary and exercise recommendations, etc) achieve phenomenal results with acupuncture and Chinese medicine in a fairly short period of time.

This community acupuncture clinic allows me to access a greater portion of the local Truckee, Reno, and Lake Tahoe community that may not have time for comprehensive treatments or have some budget constraints.  DPA (Distal Point Acupuncture) is the methodology that is used to treat almost any painful condition while the patient remains fully clothed and only points on the hands and arms, legs and feet, and head and ears are used.  This is a very old technology that accesses peripheral nerves to communicate the body's inherent pain modulating processes to alleviate inflammation, promote healthy circulation, and restore a state of well being.  The treatments are gentle, relaxing, and incredibly effective.  Most acute injuries generally respond in 1-3 treatments and older chronic injuries typically respond within 3-8 treatments.  

There is currently space for 3 people to be treated at a time.  The room is open and not private however it is quiet, relaxing, and comfortable.  Conversation about your medical condition will be kept to a low whisper and your medical information is completely confidential. You will either be treated in a gravity recliner chair or the treatment table.  Please allow 45 minutes for the whole experience to fill out paperwork and receive your 30 minute treatment.  If there are people ahead of you, you can sit and relax with a cup of tea or visit one of the restaurants (Drunken Monkey, Fifty Fifty, or Thai Delicacy) for a snack.  Treatment cost is only $58.  

I am looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!!



"The mountains are calling and I must go."


My name is Jared Andersen and I am the owner and founder of Summit Sports Acupuncture.  My wife Rachel and I recently moved to Truckee, CA to fully immerse ourselves in the mountain life. We found ourselves visiting the mountains in all of our spare time to pursue nature, backpacking, snowboarding, and all the splendor that the alpine has to offer.  Realizing that we preferred a simpler and more lifestyle driven life, we decided to pull our roots and relocate. 

I have passionately been dedicating my much of my life to study and learn Chinese medicine, therapeutic methods, movement science, martial arts, and mountain sports.  I have the very fortunate opportunity to do what I really love to do in this life.  It is my most sincere desire to help people live better lives.  I am thrilled to be living in the mountains and I look forward to helping you achieve greater health, athletic performance, alleviation of suffering, and the ability to continue to pursue your passions in life.
