Acupuncture is said to unblock the body’s energy pathways, similar to the way a busy sidewalk is easily cleared by poking pedestrians with a javelin. Remove troublesome obstacles with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a 60-minute balancing acupuncture session at Acupuncture of Iowa (a $75 value).
Acupuncture of Iowa's certified practitioners draw on their varied backgrounds in ancient Chinese medicine and athletic training to alleviate a cornucopia of modern ailments, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and back pain. After a presession assessment pinpoints the best pin points for your physical complaint—be it tennis elbow or a migraine from Iowa City's new "everything's fine" siren—Laura strategically places tiny ultra-thin needles in precise locations on the body, which stimulate a natural internal healing process. The relaxing treatment corrects any kinks in the body's energy flow, and Chinese herbs and traditional medicines help speed up the healing. The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, and menstrual cramps.
