Acupuncture Proven to Boost Exercise Performance

A new meta-analysis in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine suggests that acupuncture applied proximally during a single bout of exercise can enhance exercise performance and/or expedite postexercise recovery. They list a number of points but PC6 and St36 seem to be the big winners in both helping in ability to exercise longer but also to recover faster. Maybe when they named Zu San Li (three more miles) they weren't kidding.
