Improving performance is a major concern for both amateur and professional athletes. Amidst the various ways to improve athletic performance, many consist of products banned by different sports associations or federations. More and more athletes are turning to alternative methods to improve their athletic performance. Among the approaches that have aroused serious interest in recent years is acupuncture.
Acupuncture is well known in the treatment of sports injuries. However, it can also be very useful for optimizing and increasing athletic performance. Specifically, acupuncture can play a role in recovery after a training or competition, in speeding up the healing of injuries, in the optimization of cardiovascular capacity and endurance, in the reduction of stress and anxiety before the competition and several other factors.
Here are some of the ways acupuncture can help you perform better:
Increase concentration and reduce stress
Support the immune system
Overtraining and overwork can negatively affect the immune system. Acupuncture can support the immune system and allow you to stay healthy and energetic.
Decrease muscle fatigue
Acupuncture can reduce muscle fatigue and aches during and after your training or other intense physical activity.
Accelerate and improve recovery after training
The recovery period after a training is of fundamental importance. It is during this period that the benefits of the training take place. Acupuncture can help shorten the recovery period to allow you to optimize your training.
Accelerate the healing of sports injuries
One of the most studied and documented actions of acupuncture is undoubtedly the treatment of muscular and joint injuries and pains. For the athlete and sport enthusiast, returning to his or her training regimen quickly is of paramount importance. Treating injuries effectively and quickly is also important to avoid missing competitions or events.
Why our approach can effectively help you perform better:
We use acupuncture, a recognized practice
Acupuncture is recognized by many health professionals as a therapy of choice for pain management and relief. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of pain and even the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes it as effective in treating several types of pain.
Our approach is 100% natural
We use a natural approach to manage pain, which does not depend on drugs or invasive procedures; therefore you will have no undesirable side effects or surgical risks to manage afterwards.
We combine the best of modern medicine and Chinese medicine
By combining modern anatomical and physiological knowledge with the theory and proven practices of traditional Chinese medicine, we can achieve significant results quickly.
We accelerate body’s natural healing process
The body has the ability to regulate and heal naturally. We facilitate this work by eliminating blockages that prevent the natural healing process from taking its course. The body is then able to secrete its own anti-pain and anti-inflammatory substances; our treatment just stimulates or restarts these natural mechanisms to allow you to recover from your pain.
