Acupuncture and the benefits in sport

Acupuncture is a treatment that generates vigor and energy repair without side effects. Its use in sport has had its first reports more than 6,000 years ago!


Acupuncture is being used to improve physical performance, toning and promoting muscle relaxation, both in athletes and workers and in the past was also used by warriors. These used special acupuncture points before long battles and fights, to increase the resistance of the fighters.


The aim of acupuncture is to heal the physical and mental body by organizing the energy channels that control organs and viscera in order to achieve the main objective of treating pathologies and preventing them!

The athletes increasingly use this technique and we can see it at the Olympic Games. For example, Michael Phelps appeared at the Olympic Games with suction cup marks on his body and, despite his older age, achieved spectacular results that year. In the world of sport, acupuncture creates conditions for the athlete to practice his activity, treating pain and inflammation. But it goes beyond the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, this ancient therapy improves energy and blood circulation in the affected area and, as it acts in a totalitarian way, it helps to recover mobility and treat the person as a whole.


Studies show that athletes who use acupuncture reach higher levels of performance, with little pain and reduced injuries, thus gaining greater physical and emotional resistance in their competitions. The treatment restores the energy flow, and is very effective and usually with rapid improvements. Both acupuncture and complementary techniques - moxibustion, wind therapy, bleeding, massage therapy, are part of ancient Chinese Traditional Medicine.


Have you ever thought about do a treatment to relieve pain and restore balance and internal energies in the body? You will certainly see amazing results!
