Acupuncture for Runners

Acupuncture for Runners

The Boston Marathon is less than 2 weeks away!

You’ve made it through months of winter training, through cold morning runs on icy roads.  With only a few weeks until Marathon Monday many runners are starting to feel the impact of arduous training over the past few months.  I know because I see them in my clinic. 

Whether you’re a qualifying entrant in the Boston Marathon or a casual runner, acupuncture can offer relief from nagging pain, accelerate recovery, and prevent injury.

Acupuncture During Pregnancy: Mom-to-Be's Best Friend

Acupuncture During Pregnancy: Mom-to-Be's Best Friend

As soon as they find our their pregnant many of my patients and friends ask “What can acupuncture do for me during pregnancy?”

Pregnancy and even preconception are such great opportunities to cultivate a healthy lifestyle in anticipation and preparation of the arrival of your new baby. 

To support their efforts and to promote optimal health for you and baby, acupuncture offers an effective and safe solution.  Most women will experience some undesirable symptoms associated with pregnancy, whether it be morning sickness, sciatica, or constipation, just to name a few.  My patients love knowing that they can find relief from their symptoms in a way that is not only effective, but safe for her and her baby.

“Does Acupuncture Work?”

Whether I’m at a cocktail party or conversing with a stranger on a plane, I hear this question all the time.  My answer is a resounding “Yes!” with over 3000 years of anecdotal evidence and over 30 years of rigorous scientific evidence to support it.   Still skeptical? Ask around! Chances are, if you ask anyone who has received acupuncture for any number of conditions, they have found it effective.  Once you’ve tried it, I’m confident you will become a believer too.  But the good news is you don’t even have to be a believer for it to work, because the secret to its effectiveness isn’t in the placebo effect, it’s in our physiology and anatomy! The body is the most sophisticated technology we will ever know, yet it is also the most under-appreciated and underutilized.
