REJUVENATE

Our bodies carry incredible amounts of stress and tension.

In addition, those of us who excel in sports are prone to injury and scarring that can cause long-term harm, both physically and mentally. Caring for your body and mind means occasionally taking time to consider acupuncture and sports therapy.

Acupuncture, dry needling, cupping, and other specialized therapies can help you to maintain incredible flexibility and strength. Acupuncture is not simply a go-to for pain relief – it can – and will – ensure that you are fighting fit, and are at the top of your game!

From a simple consultation, you’ll receive a personal plan of care and action. This supports a full initial assessment and questionnaire – and you will have the time and space to ask any questions you desire.

The LOSA Difference

I highly recommend Lycoming Orthopedic and Sports Acupuncture. I had paralysis/Bell’s Palsy on my face following a sars-cov-2 infection. I had never tried acupuncture before, but had an open mind. Moses explained everything well, constantly checked my comfort levels, and was very accommodating, even extending his office hours to treat me. 12 days from the start of BP, I feel as if I am 80% recovered, my doctor told me 2-6 months! Moses gave me my smile back! Don’t hesitate, it works!

Highly recommend to anyone thinking of acupuncture as a treatment for their chronic pain. Before this, I had never tried acupuncture, and this treatment actually broke a 6+ week migraine for me. Moses is fantastic and explains the whole process very thoroughly beforehand and as you go through it.

Mr. Alvarez if very professional, very knowledgeable, and very kind. After my first treatment, I was pain-free for several days. I realize after multiple traumas, it will take some time to realign my body but I am convinced that Mr. Alvarez is the man to do it.Sydney Wade, PT
We sought acupuncture therapy out of desperation, knowing very little about it. I am pleased to report that in the capable hands of Moses Alvarez, my husband has received significant pain relief as well as improvement in some of the symptoms he experiences from Parkinson's Disease. So far, over time, the relief diminishes and a "tune up" (my term, not Moses') is necessary, but results are lasting longer after each treatment.Moses is very personable, professional and giving of his time to answer every question and to explain what he is doing and why. The benefits for my husband have been better than medication.We give glory to God and great thanks to Moses for the work that he is doing. We shall continue to seek his services, until the benefits are life long.We give all glory to God and many thanks to Moses Alvarez - instrument of the Lord.

I just starting seeing Mr. Alvarez, but I am already seriously impressed. He listened to my concerns carefully and was very thorough in his explanation of everything he was seeing and wanted to try. I am definitely going back and expect great things.

After 3 treatments my chronic neck pain is almost completely gone after thinking this was something I just had to live with for the past 2 decades! Moses is thorough and you can tell he cares about his work and patients. Highly recommend!
Moses is one of the most dedicated practitioners I have ever met. His work ethic in his commitment to continuing education is second to none. People in his community are very fortunate to be able to access such a profound and accomplished acupuncture practitioner for any muscle or joint pain.

Moses was recommended to me by a friend for my back pain that I’ve had since being in the Military and now an Emergency room nurse. I made the decision to try acupuncture about 2 months ago. I can honestly say it has been the best decision I’ve made. After the initial appointment I was 60% decreased in pain. After my second appointment even more. I have been able to move so much better and have next to no pain. When going to appointments Moses makes it a point to hit any tension spots or trouble areas and relieve the pain. 10/10 recommend trying acupuncture.
