Sea urchins are the healthiest, most relaxed creatures on Earth due to their positive self-image and spiny skin. Today's Groupon offers similar protection from stress, sickness, and sea otters: for $129, you get three acupuncture treatments at Acupuncture & Natural Healing (a $275 value).
At Acupuncture & Natural Healing, certified needle master Stephanie Hall fuses her acupuncturing experience with a yoga and massage background, helping patients alleviate chronic pain, stress, and sundry other health issues.
To start off the initial treatment, which takes about 90 minutes, Hall will review her patient's medical history. Then, placing sterile, extremely fine needles at specific points on the body, she'll activate the body's qi to improve physical and emotional health, all the while ensuring that patients stay as relaxed as a retired pincushion. Although the number of treatments necessary to receive optimum results varies, the initial session paired with a pair of follow-up treatments (about an hour each) will give patients a good start on their journey to a qi-enhanced, pain-free state that isn't Happychusetts.
