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.

If you are on the fence about trying acupuncture. Rest easy and know that Moses Alvarez is an absolute healer!I've wanted to try acupuncture for years after never finding any relief from traditional medicine.After my first treatmemt I felt imidiate relief physically and emotionally. I plan on going back as many times as it takes to heal my whole body.To heal the whole body each problem area needs to be addressed. Moses pointed out past injurys I had that were affecting other areas that I didnt even know.Pain is dehabilitating and no one should have to live with it or rely on pain meds. Traditional doctors have failed to help me, and all they've done is try to medicate me. This is after 3 er visits, 3 ekgs, 2 catscans, 3 mris, every blood test available, and 4 specialists. It was all a waste of time and money.I have complete faith, Moses Alvarez will absolutely heal you and your loved ones.Don't believe me? Try it for yourself and you will see and feel the results.

Moses is the best there is! He understands the body and it's movements and how to strengthen it. It is always a healing and uplifting experience. Highly recommend to everyone. 👍
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.

With Moses, I've gone through a 6 treatment program for persistent hip, IT band and shin splint rehabilitating pain that lasted for more than 6 months. Being able to walk, climb stairs and return to a more physically active life is a godsend!

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

Very informative...wonderful care...instant relief of pain.
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 was a little skeptical on acupuncture going into my first appointment.After one visit w/ Moses, all of the skepticism is now gone.He managed to relieve years of chronic neck/back pain in literally one visit.If you suffer w/ chronic pain don’t wait years as I had dealing with the pain. Make your appointment now & take your life back.

3 1/2 months prior I had shoulder surgery. Since surgery I had pain in my tricep and deltoid when I slept. For 3 1/2 months I was sleep deprived. Rarely more than 4 hours of broken sleep a night.Never having acupuncture before, I tried Moses.It was amazing! Since my first treatment the pain is gone in my tricep / deltoid and I have been sleeping soundly!Truly an experience that changed my well being and life!

My experience has been very positive. The treatments have been helping greatly to manage my back pain; both through improvement when I’m experiencing pain, and as maintenance helping maintain good mobility when I don’t have pain. Mr. Alvarez is also very kind and compassionate; always a pleasant experience.

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.

I personally was a skeptic, but I kept doing my own research, and figured that acupuncture has been around for centuries. So it must work a little?!? I personally survived a vehicle accident that has done major damage to my body. Finding Moses and swallowing my fear of the unknown was the best decision that ever happened to me. Do to Mose's knowledge, caring nature, he is the reason why I can walk and move around with less pain. Now; my son's, fiancé, and almost a whole wrestling/football team visits Moses... thank you sir for helping all of us.

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.

I was a big Skeptic of acupuncture. But my wife talked me into going for a treatment. I have had a lot of pain in my back and shoulders because of the business I am in. I have usually been treating my pain with massages. But now that I have had my first experience with acupuncture, I think I have found what will work for me! Moses took the time to talk with me and understand what my issues were, so he was able to target my problem areas and really give me some relief. He was very professional and thorough in explaining the process and what he planned to do. I highly recommend him!!!!

I had recently pulled a muscle in my back during an exercise class. I had tried everything to relieve the pain. Then someone told me about acupuncture. I had heard that it can be very helpful with many different issues people have with their health. So I made an appointment and went to see Moses. He was caring and very professional. He took the time to listen to me. And he built a treatment plan around my issues. After just one treatment I was feeling great. I was so amazed at how well it worked that I have been back to see him again when other issues came up. I highly recommend him!!!
