Acupuncture has been used time and again to help athletes to relieve pain. But acupuncture and the accessory modalities associated with it can do so much more. Using acupuncture treatments can actually enhance an athlete’s performance and recovery from any sports-related injuries.
When an athlete is in training, he or she is constantly pushing themselves to be better: a better speed, a higher jump, a further distance, etc. An athlete’s body is put through constant stress. Muscles are pushed to their maximum and sometimes tiny microscopic tears form. If the athlete were able to rest properly, these micro-tears would self-heal. But, when an athlete is in training, the micro-tears don’t have time to heal properly. So the body becomes continuously fatigued, sometimes painful and the probability of serious injury increases. Acupuncture helps the body to heal, restores healing levels of energy or Qi (pronounced “chee”) and strengthens the body inside and out, thus accelerating the athlete’s recovery time.

What Our Patients Say
- ~ Darrent – Shrewsbury
"My wife and I went to see a specialist at the hospital because we have been unsuccessful in trying for a baby and we found out the problem was with me. I had a sperm count of around 3 million sperm per milliliter of semen, when 20 million or more is considered a normal count. At the same time I was receiving treatment from Daian Zou for a knee injury that meant I could barely run properly and I mentioned that we were having difficulty trying for a baby. Not only did Daian fix my knee so I can run for miles now, she prescribed a course of acupuncture, herbs and lifestyle advice that produced amazing results. Soon after starting treatment my sperm count went up to 5 million and now its well over the required 20 million which is enough for conception. "
