Whether you play on the weekends or professionally, being involved in sports can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and meet new friends. However, if you’re not taking proper precautions to take care of your body, you can also be setting yourself up for harm. The acupuncture and massage therapy experts at Green Street Massage in Jamaica Plain offer acupuncture for athletes that will keep you in the game longer.
Acupuncture is an age-old Chinese holistic treatment for injuries. During the procedure, needles will be placed at certain points on the body in conjunction with the symptoms the patient is presenting. While this may sound painful, in actuality, it can be quite beneficial, and can be used to promote the body’s natural healing properties.
The powerful healing characteristics of this process can benefit athletes in numerous ways including, but not limited to the following:
- Alleviates pain
- Promotes flexibility and range of motion
- Drastically accelerates the healing process
- Decreases bruising, swelling and inflammation
- Relaxes muscles and spasms
- Boosts the immune system
- Improves sleep, circulation, and range of motion
- Speeds recovery time
- Promotes awareness
Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with many other therapeutic techniques including sports massage and therapeutic massage, both of which are offered by Green Street Massage. Their skilled acupuncturists also offer a plethora of other natural remedies including reiki, hot stone massage, and yoga classes.
