Acupuncture Improves Endurance

Most people who know me understand my commitment to fitness and my constant desire to push my physical endurance to higher levels. While I've done research in the past and even wrote my Masters Thesis on Acupuncture for Athletes, I was happy to come across a recent article confirming that acupuncture can in fact improve athletic endurance and reduce fatigue. This recent study studied both swimming exhaustion times and demonstrated that the acupuncture group had liver mitochondrial-respiratory function with a significantly lower oxygen consumption rate than the normal control. The study details can be found here. So if you have an upcoming race, or fight, or contest that tests your endurance, feel free to give us a call Hidden Rhythm Acupuncture!
