Getting fit, staying fit, can be quite a challenge for most of us. Our bodies are designed to move through the use of muscle, bone and nervous system. But, when an injury occurs it can cause all sorts of issues. Swelling, pain and inflammation being the most common presenting symptoms. These can be treated not just effectively but quickly, thus reducing the length of time spent in recovery. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a muscle or bone injury, Acupuncture excels in this area. Handed down via the martial arts system, there is a comprehensive and impressive knowledge base that has been proven over eons. What’s beautiful about acupuncture is it’s all inclusive, so if you’re not healing correctly because you have for example diabetes or another compounding issue, that can be treated too. The icing on the cake though is the practice of acupuncture in prevention of injuries. It’s a win win!
2013 – 2015 ACI Ambassador: Scott Evans
We are delighted to announce that Scott Evans is our 2015 ACI Ambassador. We wish him the best of luck in his upcoming year. Scott talked to us about why he likes to use acupuncture while sitting there with needles in for a knee injury that is bothering him.
“I have been using Acupuncture for many years, mostly for my ankle problems a couple of years ago. I have always felt this was the best treatment to get me back on court as soon as possible.”
2011 – 2012 ACI Ambassador:Robert Heffernan
“For me, acupuncture as part of my care regime works as it has an enhancing, therapeutic and most importantly a preventative effect on my body. It helps to maintain my physical wellbeing, which allows for a good performance whilst supporting my sharpness of focus as well. Acupuncture also has the power to facilitate healing meaning that it can also harm if inappropriately used. There are a lot of poorly trained acupuncturists and I believe that is why it is essential to attend an experienced, registered acupuncturist from the Acupuncture Council of Ireland. Then you can have faith that their high standards and training can offer guidance towards the best results in care.”
