Acupuncture is said to unblock the body's energy pathways, similar to the way a busy sidewalk is easily cleared by poking pedestrians with a javelin. Remove troublesome obstacles with this Groupon.

Urban Acupuncture Center
Urban Acupuncture Center grew out of the shared vision of three friends. Licensed acupuncturists Steve Drugan, Sue Bowlus, and Linda Chun were passionate about the ancient Chinese technique's potential to heal—especially after finding personal relief from conditions such as migraines and sciatica—and wanted to make it accessible to more people. After learning that clinics across the country were offering services on a sliding scale, the trio took a trip to Detroit to visit three community acupuncture centers. They saw people from all walks of life receiving acupuncture treatments together, and, recognizing the need for a similar establishment in Ohio, decided to found their own community-minded clinic.
Today, within the center's open, communal setting, patients relax in cushy leather recliners among Asian-inspired room dividers and multimedia works crafted by local artists while thin, sterile needles alleviate the stresses and imbalances that leave bodies low. Patients await treatment on the reception area’s pew-like bench beside a trickling fountain, where they can focus on centering their energies or finding the moisture needed to affix a temporary tattoo.
