What You'll Get
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 $45, you get an acupuncture session at Alki Art & Wellness Institute (a $90 value).
Alki Art & Wellness Institute galvanizes overall well-being through holistic techniques designed to promote relaxation, weight loss, pain management, and lifestyle change. In this one-hour session, licensed acupuncturists Traver H. Boehm or Alexandra Carmel will first talk over patients’ needs and concerns to identify the potential sources of discomfort, anxiety, or chronic trapeze-artist inversion. Acupuncture stimulates the release of pain-reducing neurotransmitters and helps balance hormone levels. The ancient Chinese treatment’s fine needles, slipped into the skin near the surface, are nearly imperceptible, but will send a polite thank-you for the invitation to enter and improve the body’s flow of vital energy, or qi.
