Acupuncture Video - Americans (& Canadians!) are turning to this age old treatment

As many of my patients can attest, acupuncture works for a number of conditions and the World Health Organization agrees. Check out this new video I found.

Steve Nash (NBA All-Star Point Guard) about how his Naturopathic Doctor Improved his health!

Almost everyone falls into the trap of getting into bad habits and for Steve Nash, Canada's own all-star point guard, it was his sugar habits. As a result, many other aspects of his health were affected, like his sleep.

Most professional athletes or people who do a lot of exercise can afford to indulge in junk food or other treats. In fact, some professional athletes have horrible diets, but because of the high level of calorie burning that they do, it doesn't show as much on their physiques. Although, that changes once they retire from their sport.

Take a look at Steve Nash's article in Men's Journal magazine and how his Naturopathic Doctor made a difference.

A fascinating look at anatomy & why movement and therapies like acupuncture are effective for stiffness or pain.

Often I tell patients who sit in front of the computer the whole day to take breaks....."go for a walk, do shoulder rolls, do some stretching". Why? Because we all tend to get stiff and over time pain results.

This is a great video looking at anatomy & why movement/activity and even therapies like acupuncture work so effectively to increase flexibility and range of motion.

Acupuncture helps to remove or breakdown the "fuzz" or the muscle knots that you have.
