Italian soccer club Inter Milan has agreed to finalize a partnership with SHIN9, Inc., which runs acupuncture and moxibustion (traditional Chinese medicine therapy) and osteopathic clinics in Japan, to jointly work to develop a health care program, the two organizations announced on Friday in Tokyo.

The Serie A team has rich knowledge and experience in developing players' physicality while SHIN9 is a fast-growing company in Oriental medical care. The program, dubbed "Inter Academy Health," plans to offer effective training methods, combining the specialized areas of Inter and SHIN9.

Ultimately, the program isn't just intended for professional athletes, but for ordinary people and their daily health care.
