Wellness and Performance

While many or our patients begin acupuncture treatment because of a particular health challenge, most stay because they get accustomed to having more energy, greater focus and a greater sense of ease. We know that Chinese medicine gives us increased resistance to illness, faster recovery from injury and accidents, and better sleep. What we also know is that Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine reduces local and systemic inflammation and increases blood flow to tissues giving you an edge on disease prevention, speeding athletic recovery and giving you noticeable improvements in mental and emotional stability.

Below, you will find posts we make that are related to Wellness and Performance. If you have a question that could help others, please ask us on Facebook or in the comments section of any Wellness and Performance related post. If you have a private question, please contact us.
