Acupuncture uses tiny needles to redirect the body's energy, which is a better use for needles than sewing yourself into a sleeping bag forever. Feel better with this Groupon.

Each acupuncture treatment lasts about 40–60 minutes and includes an assessment. A licensed acupuncturist uses very thin, disposable needles in an attempt to regulate the flow of bodily energy and stimulate innate healing mechanisms. The recommended frequency of treatments varies depending on individual conditions. Guest should wear comfortable clothing that can be raised to their elbows and knees. This Groupon includes the $5 administrative fee for new patients.

The team addresses a variety of conditions, ranging from digestive, respiratory, and musculoskeletal maladies to emotional concerns. During sessions, clients relax on a table or in a recliner behind a privacy screen in a softly lit, open room. This type of community setting allows friends or family members to receive services together and fosters a sense of collective healing. The caring crew also promotes better health with cupping treatments and herbal and nutritional supplements.
