Taking Advil before exercise or going home to ice your knees after exercise may be a common practice but it should not be considered “normal” and in fact can cause other problems that you want to avoid!
I’m going to focus on ways to get rid of aches and pains and I’d like to show you some other choices that you can make that will alleviate the need for ibuprofen and help you to be more comfortable and overall in better health.
Chinese medicine has lots of wisdom about health and longevity and exercise. Learn simple ways to move your Qi and loosen up your muscles in your body. I will introduce techniques to help decrease pain and enhance blood flow to the soft tissues. Students can gain access to increased flexibility and range of motion which can help avoid future injuries.
As a licensed acupuncturist, I am passionate about helping people stay vital, active, and fully engaged in life. The focus of my continuing education is orthopedics and pain management. I regularly treat low back pain, arthritic knees, tennis elbow, rotator cuffs, as well as other injuries, aches, and pains. I would like to share my knowledge with you so that you can get back to doing the activities you love!
