Acupuncturist for the NFL players

Kristen Sparrow • December 06, 2010

One of my patients brought me this article from the New York Times Sports Section. It’s about an acupuncturist who is devoted to 3 or 4 NFL teams and works 96 hours a week to keep them in good shape for their upcoming games. She uses a combination of a sort of massage and Japanese Style acupuncture, at times using as many as 130 needles. Tough guys!! But it’s great to see acupuncture becoming more and more mainstream.
