Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is a well-designed healing modality that has been in practice for millennia. The wide spread and well documented history of this practice bears witness to it’s effectiveness. With regular treatments, even the most healthy person will experience increased energy levels as circulation is improved and the body is able to utilize most of the nutrients you consume. Weekly visits are ideal, but even going biweekly can help with maintaining health, improving stamina, boosting immunity, and getting better sleep. Applied to an athletic body, acupuncture can drastically speed recovery from sports injuries and increase the effectiveness of your workouts.
