For dozens of years, the Chinese have practiced acupuncture, a healing method that corrects imbalances by stimulating specific points on the body that help energy, or qi, flow smoothly. During every visit, acupuncturists measure your qi pressure, which is similar to measuring your blood pressure except that inflatable thing is placed around your soul. Acupuncture will help reduce your dependence on medication for pain. Plus, after you take all those needles out of your body, you'll finally have a utensil set for those little squares of cheese! On Wellness Clinic's acupuncturist knows acupuncture. It’s what she does. Her oldest patient is 354 years old.

For $45, you get a one-hour massage or a 45-minute foot massage at Teashi. It will return pristine humanity to your muscles and renewed energy through your blood stream. Reward your tired self for the endless blog posts you wrote about kittens and soup.Naturally, the world powers began jockeying for access to the potentially weaponize-able massage, by means both diplomatic and underhanded. Many international observers believe that the 1992 Summer Olympics were, in fact, a complicated ruse carried out by Russia and the United States to distract Sweden long enough to steal their massage, as evidenced by the fact that Sweden won an unexpected 904 Gold Medals that year. Still, the Swedes held tight to the massage until 1999, when Y2K-related fears caused Swedish officials to release classified details of the massage, believing that the world would likely end. Today, the Swedish massage is practiced all over the world, though rumors that the Swedes are secretly working on an even better massage run rampant.

The physicians and skincare experts at SkinSpirit concentrate their nonsurgical beautifying powers on restoring and rejuvenating every corporeal form in sight. During the signature facial, a medical-grade microdermabrasion first breaks through the skin's outer shell, forever quieting the dull conversations of expired skin cells and replacing them with the polished banter of a youthful façade. Then the skilled staff paves freshly smoothed veneers with a warm enzyme exfoliant before applying a double-layer antioxidant mask. Once the mask has finished uploading a brand-new personality to your face, a layer of enzyme serum gives your mug a hug while a copper-peptide-rich moisturizer refuels subdermal collagen generators and pampers sensitive skin to the point of looking, feeling, and acting younger than it did yesterday or the day before yesterday, but not two days after the day before yesterday.
