Exercise induced injuries like tendons or bursae inflammation, joint pain, muscle pain, muscle strains, and neck pain can recover better when your body is optimally balanced. Intravenous vitamins and minerals, acupuncture, neural therapy, and Ayurvedic medicine can help restore the energy balance that your body needs to endure prolonged exercise.

  • Is a hard track workout causing you to hurt excessively?
  • Why is your neck hurting from a three hour bike ride now? It is not the first time you took that route…
  • Is fatigue causing you to have abnormal form during your workouts?

According to Chinese medicine, Qi (Chi) is the flow of energy that sustains life. If it is not well-balanced, then recovering from hard workouts will take longer, injuries will linger, and your body will be more prone to injuries. Ayurvedic medicine can also help balance the vital energy of the body by prescribing specific nutrition based on your body type: Vata, Pitta, or Kapha. Proper nutrition will provide you with the energy that you require to perform at the highest levels of competition.
