( - NEW YORK, NY -- June 4, 2014 - As the warm weather blankets the country, outdoor activity and exercise increases, such as running, cycling, and tennis.  After one of the coldest winters on record, people want to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather and exercising for better overall health, getting back in shape or losing extra winter weight.

The problem is that oftentimes, people overextend themselves and exercise too hard and, as a result, a sports injury occurs.  Dr. Anne Jeffres, director and founder of Jeffres Acupuncture Center in Manhattan says, "This time of year, I treat many patients with a myriad of activity-related injuries requiring pain management -- from strained muscles, to achy knees, hips and backs.  Acupuncture works extremely well and helps your body recover from an injury faster." 

Jeffres, a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, who has treated thousands of patients over the past 20 years, has extensive experience with pain-related sports ailments and  has also treated NFL players.   She advises "Weekend Warriors" to get back to exercising with caution.  "One's fitness level depends on getting regular exercise, but it is important to take into consideration how you approach an exercise program.   Pushing your limits and exercising too vigorously can result in an injury.  With any sport or leisure activity, it is best to start at a slower pace and then gradually build your endurance."  

Research studies show that acupuncture is effective in treating pain conditions. The most common sports injuries tends to be inflammation of tissues due to repetitive stress, such as tendonitis and bursitis,  Inflammation and the pain that accompanies it is very common for athletes - from activities like running, cycling, playing tennis and golfing.  Acupuncture and topical application of Chinese herbs can quickly reduce pain, swelling and inflammation of tendons in the knees, elbows, legs, shoulders and back.  Dr. Jeffres recommends, that with any sports injury, the earlier the treatment, the better. 

Patients receive treatment at Jeffres Acupuncture Center in a community-based service approach and is one of only a few in New York City to offer this. Treatments start at $40 per session for a high-quality and individualized service in a relaxing, common treatment space. 

Dr. Jeffres is passionate in her drive to understand the analytics of why this ancient tradition works and how acupuncture can best solve modern health challenges.  "I am on a never-ending journey of knowledge and research. I am grateful for the opportunity to use ancient techniques and natural healing to help people achieve optimal health and wellness," she explains. 


Dr. Anne Jeffres is an expert in Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.  She is Nationally Board Certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine (NCCAOM) and has been in practice for 20 years.  She currently works in breast cancer research at Columbia University, and frequently lectures on Chinese medicine at NY-area medical schools. She also uses her expertise in Chinese medicine to help create the national board exam in Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Jeffres Acupuncture Center supports clients on a natural path to health and wellness.  At the Center, ancient knowledge meets modern healing.  Most importantly, the center is affordable and community-based, so this life-changing therapeutic healing can be available to everyone.
