Having an active life is a great way to enjoy good health. We have been privileged to help many active individuals in two primary ways:
First: We work with many athletes from all sports to improve their performance. We have several tri-athletes as patients that have commented that the protocols we put them on during their training and during their races have been astounding. They say they don’t hit the wall, they recover more quickly, and their race times are better. Several athletes we have worked with previously suffered headaches, nausea and other symptoms after races, which no longer plague them.
The Second support is in sports injuries. Acupuncture in particular, has been shown to reduce healing time of fractures and sprain/strains. Chronic and acute pain is quite commonly remedied with acupuncture. We treat everything from a simple tendonitis, to chronic protracted pain, and also support post-operative healing.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine can help relieve inflammation, swelling, pain, and improve circulation. They can stimulate the healing mechanism, and strengthen damaged or healthy tissue.
The more rigorous the exercise, the more nutritional support is required. It is essential. Competing with a half empty tank (so to speak), is not only unwise, but dangerous. Many an athlete who was assumed to be in awesome shape dropped dead during an athletic event with no history of health issues that would have contributed to their demise.
There is much we can do to help you achieve your athletic potential. It is a race worth running!
Last year, after jogging an hour or so every day for a month, my left knee became so painful I couldn’t bend it or walk without limping and going faster than a snail’s pace. I saw a physical therapist who gave me exercises that helped but I was still in pain and limping for about 6 months after that. This year, I got smart. I’ve been doing 40 minutes a day and 4 miles an hour on the treadmill along with rigorous weight training and the same thing began happening again, only this time, I decided to go see Holly. After only 3 weeks of treatment, the pain has completely disappeared and I have been able to continue the treadmill and my training non-stop for two months! Before Holly, I had visions of being imprisoned forever in this fat “temple” in the sedentary position of a couch potato. Now I’m free to become the “real” me that’s waiting inside. Thanks and God Bless you Holly! - Yamini
