Research: Acupunctures effects on exaustive physical exercise

Good morning Ottawa!

Its your favorite registered acupuncturist here J.P. Brunelle!

As you may or may not know I am a passionate practitioner of martial arts and fitness.

I am always in search of new information related to Acupuncture and Traditional  Chinese Medicine to help both my training as well as the athletes I work on here at the clinic.

My latest find from Pubmed.org showcases research on the metabolic effects acupuncture has on the body when recovering from exhaustive physical exercise.

Researchers used NMR-based metabolomics analysis to observe how athletes recovered differently using acupuncture as apposed to just rest alone.

The analysis indicated that the metabolic recovery rate of the acupuncture treatment group was much faster than those only taking rest.

The researchers concluded that acupuncture is an effective fatigue relieving approach to help athletes recover quicker from workouts.

I have experienced this effect first hand as I regularly do self treatments during the week to recover from my routine of Muay Thai and strength training.

I highly recommend Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine for anyone who is serious about training and recovering to their fullest potential.

All the best in health,
