Yes, it seems a bit strange doesn't it? Stick a needle here, here, here and here - and you will be able to run better??
Most of our ancient simian instincts would tell us, "HEEELLLLLLLLLLLL no!"
However, allow me to convince you to just consider an option - just yet, another option in your toolbox of treatment options for you to choose from if you happen have a couple of creaks, bumps, sprains or noisy joints that you'd like to investigate (hopefully with the help of your friendly neighbourhood acupunk!) in order to get you back on your feet and running (or swimming, cycling, gym-ing, monkey bar climbing, etc) again.

It hasn't been published on Darou Wellness but I wanted to post it here because I am really - no actu...

As a Registered Acupuncturist, one of the most common things I am asked is whether acupuncture can be used to assist somebody going through IVF. Yes it can! At Simple Cures, we understand that navigating through the process of IVF on its own can be complicated and confusing.
