Well readers, this story is as much about listening to your wife as it is about the benefits of acupuncture for sports stars.

““My wife suggested that I try acupuncture and I was like, ‘Come on.’ But I was astonished.”
The morning after his first session in Providence, R.I., Hammel couldn’t believe how good he felt. Not only were his muscles relaxed, his energy level was redlining.
