What You'll Get
Acupuncture treatments are used to relieve pain, increase energy, and improve wellbeing, unlike normal puncture treatments, which are only used when patients are filled with helium. Let your ailments float away with today's deal: for $49, you get two acupuncture treatments at AcuBrooklyn (a $200 value), located near Fort Greene Park.
At the beginning of the first session, Heidi, the professional acupuncturist at AcuBrooklyn, will perform a full consultation to determine the best course of action and which bodily areas to target. Depending on which of the many benefits you're looking to reap, Heidi will select the appropriate acupuncture points and infiltrate the meridian lines, unlocking the powers of the Qi, increasing energy levels, and causing a jukebox somewhere in America to inexplicably start playing Foreigner.
Needles are typically left in for 15–20 minutes to stimulate the area and may be lightly manipulated by the acupuncturist. For relief from deep muscle tension, Heidi performs trigger point release work, which involves pinpointing tight muscle bands to relax muscle fibers and relieve pain. Sensations from acupuncture are unique for each person but are typically nearly pain-free and can cause tingling feelings, numbness, and warmth or traveling-energy sensations. A poignant sensation results from trigger point release, which usually subsides as muscles relax. Acupuncture is an excellent addition to other methods of treatment or simply for stand-alone relief from general sluggishness, persistent aches, or pincushion envy.
This Groupon does not include the cost of herbs, should herbal therapy be desired or recommended.
