Wei Beyond Acupuncture calls upon ancient Chinese techniques to mend bodily ailments from the inside out. The center’s holistic therapies include acupuncture, Tui Na massage, and fire-cupping, all of which work to blast away qi-inhibiting roadblocks and stimulate circulation between estranged body parts. While acupuncture relies on sterile needles to balance bickering yins and yangs, massage applies five-fingered pressure to acupoints and cupping draws toxins out with vacuums and trails of radioactive cookie crumbs. Therapists also prescribe herbal medicines infused with plants and minerals and customize food-therapy eating regimens to help alleviate specific ailments.
Deer Island Country Club's 18-hole course is covered in course architect Joe Lee's fingerprints?or, more accurately, his finger-style bunkers. The renowned designer's signature sandtraps?known for their sinuous shapes that spread into multiple "fingers"?are showcased throughout the course, clutching the edges of fairways and greens, ready to ensnare golfers' misfires or speeding golf carts.
Sometimes, however, finding a sandtrap is a blessing in disguise, as many bunkers serve as a final collection area between dry land and the lakes and wetlands that come into play on nearly every hole. Though hazardous to golfers or caddies without life jackets, the wetlands sustain a bustling ecosystem that includes alligators, bobcats, and even a family of six bald eagles, which dwells in the pine trees that line the 18th hole.
