Tennis Star Endorses Acupuncture's Effectiveness
Great to see tennis superstar Novak Djokovic tweet a pic of his regular acupuncture treatments: "Chinese traditional medicine herbs on acupuncture needles. Not always pleasant but effective."
Here, a warming herb called moxa is burned on the needle tips to enhance the impact. Traditional Chinese medicine developed many types of therapies—including acupuncture, moxa, cupping, gua sha, and topical herbal ointments—to speed recovery and strengthen the practice of martial arts trainees. Modern athletes like Djokovic employ these ancient practices because they’re timelessly effective for enhancing healing and peak performance.
