About Sportmed Acupuncture
My name is Sergei Khitrykau , founder of SportMedAcupuncture clinic. In 2008 I finished the Acupuncture program of Montreal Rosemont college and became licensed acupuncturist .Since than I practice acupuncture in Montreal and suburbs.
I specialize in the treatment of all kind of pains: chronic, acute; neurological neuropathies, digestive or pulmonary disorders.
My practice is the integration of several Acupuncture technics. High end modern Acupuncture technics such as neuroacupuncture , Laser Acupuncture are mixed with classical Japanese Meridian and Dr Tong or Tan Acupuncture along with classical massage Tuina or Guasha technic.
The majority of my treatments are based on three principles.
The one thing I understood working with my patients, Acupuncture never ever should be painful or uncomfortable. In the clinic, only high quality, one single quality needles are used that do not cause any harmful sensations.
I you would like to experience my Acupuncture approach , I welcome you to take the appointment in one of the three locations in Montreal.
Thank you and see you soon.
