What You'll Get
Accidentally discovered during the boozy revelry of a pin factory’s New Year's party, acupuncture has since developed into both a potent alternative medicine and popular celebrity Jeopardy category. Today’s Groupon gives you a pain-free way to stay pain-free: for $30, you get an acupuncture treatment and personal consultation at Clinic Amit (a $60 value). Clinic Amit is located in downtown St. Petersburg.
Acupuncture draws on the concept of qi, or the life force that flows through the body. It works by applying small, practically painless, single-use sterile filiform needles to specific acupuncture points on the meridians, which stimulate the qi flow to balance energy and overall wellness. Before your inner-body cleansing can be accomplished, a patient consultation is completed to determine individual ailments and create a comprehensive strategy for treatment. After your body’s yin and yang reunite, Eran Pupkin, AP, or Chris Flanagan, AP, will give one final assessment to determine whether any supplementary therapies are necessary, such as Chinese herbs, tui na (massage), cupping, moxibustion, or diet therapy.
According to the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization, acupuncture is an effective method for treating acute and chronic pain, and regular visits can contribute to superior health and incredible tooth-brushing skills with the non-dominant hand. Today’s Groupon will balance your qi while freaking out your needle-queasy friends, but it will also mean that your chronic finger-pain excuse to get out of Tuesday-night knitting club will no longer work. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
