What to expect on your first Acupuncture visit:


The goal of Acupuncture is to understand the patterns of disease of the individual at the time of examination. During your initial visit we will assess your physical condition, by identifying symptoms, uncovering your medical history and any external factors that may impact your health and well-being, through an extended interview.

How does Acupuncture work: 

Small needles are inserted into the top layer of the skin in order to restore balance, decrease pain, and promote health within the body.
Restoration occurs by allowing the body's natural energy, "Qi," to flow freely. With stimulation of specific acupuncture points in the skin,
energy flows, allowing the body to heal faster. In Western medicine, the needles are seen as an external stimulus that the body responds to by increasing blood flow to an area. The blood transports oxygen, nutrients,and other biochemicals to increase healing in the body.

This therapy works in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to help treat musculoskeletal and other conditions.

Sarah P. 

"Dr. Martinez has been helping me with pregnancy mood/ anxiety issues using Acupuncture it has been amazing! It took 2 treatments to resolve most of the symptoms. Excellent facility and very professional."


"Acupuncture helped my post partum anxiety significantly! I highly recommend Dr. Martinez !

Sheva W. 

"I have been going to Dr. Martinez since he opened his practice, about a year ago. This is a full service practice, from acupuncture , adjustments, wellness counseling to physical therapy . He has helped me significantly and has also taught me how my diet affects some of my pain. He listened to my concerns and helped me implement a nutrition and exercise plan to compliment my treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Martinez !!"


"I appreciated the understanding of the problem and maintenance plan Dr. Martinez gave me. I was looking for acupuncture to get some relief from pain in my right arm and shoulder. His treatments and caring approach are much appreciated. Thank You"


"Dr Martinez is excellent. He has helped me immensely have arthritis in my knee his treatment helped so much. I then started acupuncture and am feeling so much better not quite 100% yet. But we are working on getting there"


"I can not say enough good things about Tri Modern Health. In August 2015 I injured my hip while hiking. I spent six weeks icing, resting and taking ibuprofen with no results. I made an appointment with Martinez. After a detailed history and testing Dr Martinezcame up with a treatment plan specific to my injury, including manipulation, ultrasound, massage, acupuncture and physical therapy. After following through with his treatment plan I was able to resume my normal routine. Best of all I was able to participate in all the activities I had scheduled for my Alaskan hiking adventure. Now I am able to be the active person I want to be PAIN FREE!  Without Dr Martinez's expertise I am unsure if I would have been able to continue working and enjoying life to the fullest. I would highly encourage anyone who is unsure about using chiropractic services to contact Dr Martinez to arrange a consultation"
