“I just wanted to give you an update on the recent 26.2 mile Chevron Houston Marathon that I ran on January 15th. In the weeks prior to the marathon I had doubts that I would be able to participate due to a very tight IT band in my right leg. This made runs as short as 3 miles painful and I would have to stop and walk. I tried cutting back on the miles for 2 weeks with no improvement.
After the first acupuncture session I could tell a very noticeable improvement. 3 sessions later I had no pain whatsoever in my training runs. On January 15th I ran the marathon and experienced absolutely no pain or tightness in my knee for the entire race, mile 26 felt as good as mile 1! I ran the marathon non-stop and placed in the top 20% of the runners, across all age groups.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, about 100 needles and a few thousand years of Chinese medical research for allowing me to continue to participate in a sport that I love, long-distance running. And living it pain-free!”
