Are you an athlete looking to optimize performance? Increase speed, stamina or recovery time? As an intense martial artist and cardio-kickboxing instructor in the past myself, I can relate AND I am super excited to share some evidence that Acupuncture can make a difference. I can also tell you anecdotally that my Iron Man competitors and Ultra Runner patients can attest to the validity of this research.
Specifically, researchers have discovered that acupuncture can stimulate the release of biochemicals that help prevent athletic fatigue due to intensive exercise. The study showed that electroacupuncture can affect the free radical metabolism process in athletes and increase antioxidant activity.
Researchers in the study came to the conclusion that electroacupuncture - a form of acupuncture - increases enzymes that have antioxidant properties and decreases the body’s biochemical response to stressors, resulting in a decrease in athletic fatigue.
These results are significant for any serious athlete or person who regularly exercises at an intense rate and is looking to improve performance and endurance. If you feel this issue applies to you or someone you know, contact an acupuncturist (like me??!!) to begin alternative treatment and improve your sport performance.
