Acupuncture was invented after tailors noticed a more calm, relaxed demeanor in recently altered tuxedos. Pin up your body in the trappings of tranquility with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a facial acupuncture rejuvenation treatment at AcuLife in La Jolla (a $150 value).
Licensed acupuncturist Julia Sanfilippo performs each treatment surrounded by stockpiles of knowledge that she accumulated while earning a master of science in traditional oriental medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Rejuvenating treatments entail the insertion of fine needles into acupuncture points on the face, neck, and around the eyes. By stimulating facial muscles in strategic spots, Sanfilippo aims to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and imbue skin with the tone of an extremely fit porcupine. Although most patients leave looking more youthful after a single session, multiple sessions are typically recommended (sometimes as many as 10 for best results). After needles are removed, a massage soothes the face, scalp, and hands to prepare them to fend off droves of admiring woodland creatures.
