Acupuncture needles are different from sewing needles, in that they are much tinier and can't be used to attach patches of fake fur to a T-shirt. Feel the difference with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options

- $39 for four 60-minute community-acupuncture sessions (a $95 value)
The first session includes a diagnostic consultation and costs $35; subsequent sessions cost $20 each. Community acupuncture is a more traditional practice than private sessions, and, as the name indicates, takes place in a group environment.
Community acupuncture sessions are held Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Healing Arts Institute
The staff at Healing Arts Institute instructs aspiring therapists in body work that aims to eliminate pain from the center of the body. Anatomy and physiology classes, classrooms with full-length mirrors, and more than 1,600 square feet of space help interns learn body mechanics. A vast understanding of the body’s inner workings help them as they move from classroom study to the school’s onsite spa, where clients can schedule massages with them or with the school’s experts. Student interns complete over 200 hours of training, and while beginning interns perform gentle Swedish-style massages, more advanced practitioners can quell injuries with their handiwork. Regardless of style, all of Healing Arts Institute’s clients depart from the massage clinic feeling more relaxed than a sloth traveling through a speed trap.
Healing Arts Institute also has a community-acupuncture clinic where a licensed acupuncturist, not a student, inserts needles into several clients at once. Clients lie back in recliners and rest while the needles go to work. Because the acupuncturist can treat multiple people at a time and no private treatment rooms are used, community acupuncture costs less than private acupuncture. It is also the type of acupuncture commonly used in Asia.
