He practiced in a physical therapy office for years doing dry needling and treating the stiffness caused by PRP on world class athletes. The results Wade get’s are profound.

The key to success in athletics lies as much in the training we do as in the way we recover. Wade’s skills in acupuncture have helped me both at a systemic level and also with point specific injuries. He has become a vital part of my overall training routine.
— Shannon Rowbury, Olympic athlete, World Championships Bronze medalist and four-time United States champion in the sport of track and field, world record holder in 2015 relay medley and American record holder in the 1500 meters.
This was my first time ever getting acupuncture and I wouldn’t have picked anyone other than Wade for my initial experience. He was very knowledgable and made me feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process. Immediately I trusted him with my treatment and I will definitely be going back should I have any future injuries!
— Jordan Hasay, Elite Team Nike Pro-Runner

Wade is a skilled practitioner who was able to work with me and made me feel much much better over the course of our visits.
