What You'll Get


Acupuncture needles are different from sewing needles, in that they are much tinier and can’t be used to attach patches of fake fur to a T-shirt. Feel the difference with this voucher.

Acupuncture can remedy pain, but understanding why can be a pain for those who are unfamiliar. Follow Groupon’s exploration of this ancient healing process to clarify any questions or concerns.

The Science of Acupuncture: Pinning Down the Source of Relief

Hair-thin needles are inserted in a line along the right arm, and in the depths of the large intestine energy is freed and digestion becomes easier. That’s the theory, anyway. Acupuncture has a 2,000-year lineage, but science is still grappling to understand how its effects are produced. Traditional Chinese acupuncture theory maps invisible channels for energy—known as chi—on the skin. Practitioners believe that these meridians link the body’s vital organs and that stimulating points along these meridians gets blocked chi flowing and restores balance to the entire system.

How does this ancient wisdom link up with modern knowledge of human anatomy? It’s hard to tell, but advanced imaging techniques offer tantalizing hints of how relief might be produced. Doppler ultrasounds have shown that blood flow increases where the needles are inserted. Thermal imaging has revealed that inflammation subsides during treatments, and neuroimaging studies suggest that acupuncture mutes the brain’s pain receptors and releases endorphins. Other doctors have noted that many of the hundreds of acupuncture points across the body correspond with nerve bundles and muscle trigger points, or that they follow major arteries. Whether by simple trial and error or by working from a grand theory of the natural world, ancient Chinese healers may have foreshadowed some of Western medicine’s insights millennia ago.
