Today's side deal can heal you through and through with an integrated, holistic discount. For $39, you'll get a consultation and acupuncture treatment at Ancient Arts Acupuncture ($100 value). Unstick your qi and release your hidden superpowers.
Ancient Chinese cartographers mapped a network of channels in the body through which energy, or qi, flows. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that the uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. Certified and licensed acupuncturist Tom Ingegno will gently tap into those channels to get your energy flowing and improve your body's ability to heal itself.
Even if you're squeamish about the needles, Tom will put you at ease with his gentle technique and comprehensive explanation of your treatment; in fact, he specializes in dealing with first-time patients, which is a testament to his gentle touch. Unlike hypodermic needles, acupuncture needles aren't hollow; instead, they are super fine, enabling them to pinch less. Though some patients report a tiny pinch or tingling sensation, many acupuncture patients find their treatment relaxing and invigorating. After a brief fifteen-minute consultation, your treatment is likely to last about an hour. Check out Ancient Arts Acupuncture's hours and call to schedule an appointment.
The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, and back pain. Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment, as it is known to boost the immune system—just in time for flu season and the cataclysmic pole shift predicted to occur in 2012.
- I have been seeing Tom for 3 years now and I can't recommend him enough. For years I've had struggles with insomnia and back pain and after being treated by Tom, I've been sleeping considerably better. – Google Mapper on 09/02/2010
- Tom was recommended to my wife and I initially to provide acupuncture treatments for our beloved dog Jack, an Akita. After the recommended treatments Jack showed dramatic signs of improvement. When I needed acupuncture myself, for the first time, I naturally decided on Tom. I felt improvement after each and every session I had. Tom is a very good listener, so he helps you to be comfortable. And his treatments are very effective. – Google Mapper on 12/17/2009
