"... Recently I heard that there is a company ELITE Muay Thai fitness is becoming a "box closing depression" plan, through Muay Thai to help friends suffering from depression, I highly recommend it to everyone! Muay Thai is not boxing but a moderate to severe Oxygen band exercise, and the instructors in the plan have undergone arduous training, plus a group of friends to go to school together, adding an important social element! "

"... Of course, the purpose of Muay Thai is not to train students to be fighters and go out to compete. The advantage is that during the practice... the soft tissues and joints of the students' body are stretched well, and the muscles Muscle strength and bone density have also increased. Aerobic exercise during boxing can also increase cardiorespiratory function, and long-term exercise has a more weight-loss effect. No mental health help has been counted. Many recent studies have shown that exercise has a very good effect on improving the mood and symptoms of mental patients. Many doctors will require emotional patients to increase their exercise to improve their condition. But the reality is that many modern people lack motivation and can’t afford to do sports. Now the center organizes this activity. A group of members meet to go "punching" together. Just like having fun after work, it can be social and can improve the body and mind and resist depression. As a psychiatrist, I have 100 likes of course for Long Chengfang’s new attempt!..."
