Larry Godwin


Larry was born in Kellogg, Idaho and has family currently residing in western Montana and northern Idaho.  Larry fought forest fires for the U.S. Forest Service for over a decade, leading Interagency Hotshot Crews and managing the first Helicopter Rappel Program in Oregon through its experimental phase.  Larry also spent time working for the Department of Interior, consulting on all aspects of human performance in hazardous work environments.

The desire to support individuals sustaining injuries to return to full performance led Larry to the field of Sports Acupuncture, which is utilized by many in professional sports to return to and maintain optimum performance after injury.   Larry opened Virginia Sports Acupuncture over 15 years ago, and supported athletes of numerous sports including triathlon, marathon, ultra-marathon, CrossFit, cycling, rowing, martial arts, professional football, and baseball.  Upon relocating to Montana, Larry has opened Montana Sports Acupuncture to provide support in Western Montana.

Larry utilizes 45 years of experience in personal training, sports nutrition, supplementation, and acupuncture to support individuals with acute and chronic injury to return to pain free performance, whether that is chasing a two year old or running a “personal best” in your next ultra marathon.

Larry is a Montana State licensed and Diplomat Acupuncturist certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Montana Sports Acupuncture uses and supplies several product brands in the office in support of client’s improving wellness and performance goals.
