Running Performance And Acupuncture With Jani White

The world is changing and one needs to be informed, to know the available options and to even try them out. Some may work for you while other may not, but exploring different therapies gives you the greatest chances to find the best that works for you, the one that will enhance your performance and enable you to reach your goals and beyond.

When we talk about a runner’s health we think of nutrition, strength and injury prevention. While all these are important, and I should know since I work with runners and injuries, there is a part of our bodies we seldom think about: the internal body, with its organs and hormones. This is part of a runner’s health as well and a very important one. This is one of the reasons I am talking to Jani today.

Jani is a highly experienced acupuncturist, she lectures internationally and nationally on her subjects.

We first talk about my personal experience with Jani’s treatment, when we worked on releasing tension and stress, feeling more grounded and calm.

She introduces us to acupuncture and then we talk about how it relates to runners and running performance. How it helps drive oxygenated blood to muscles for enhanced performance and faster recovery.

Acupuncture affects what is happening within your body at a neurobiological level. The majority of our neurobiological function is autonomic” (autonomic: cannot consciously control).

Acupuncture enhances and keys the autonomic system into its peak performance, streamlining your system into its peak ability, generating ultimate homeostasis” (homeostasis: the tendency towards a relatively stable equilibrium between all the systems).

She also briefly explains what meridian channels are and how each channel relates to an organ. We all know that, as runners and not only, it’s not enough to look after our quads and core, we need to take care of our organs as well. If the internal systems don’t function properly nothing else will.

We also talk about how your surrounding environment depletes your reserves and what you can do home, right now to protect your body.
