What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Reno Raines: Renegade Acupuncturist
Today’s Groupon gets you $120 worth of acupuncture healing for $50 with Andreas Schwerte, O.M.D, L.Ac. Schwerte is an Oriental medical doctor whose treatments blend conventional Western medicine with Eastern traditional and natural medicine to unstick your qi and alleviate pain.
Schwerte has dedicated 15 years to honing his craft in Oriental medicine, and he's a teacher at the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Science in Oakland. This Groupon gets you a 90-minute visit, which includes an acupuncture exam and treatment. As a master acupuncturist, a master herbalist, and a curiously good listener, Schwerte first gets an understanding of your personal history before determining a diagnosis. He plots out a treatment plan and walks you through its benefits before you receive your acupuncture treatment.
Headaches, allergies, and back pain don't vacate through reasonable discussion or aggressive guilting. The Chinese mapped a network of channels through which energy, or qi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. Put your woes before the devotion of Schwerte, whose East-West hybrid attacks exterminate physical and emotional aguish.
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. Call ahead to make an appointment.

Reno Raines: Renegade Acupuncturist
The stunning popularity of acupuncture in modern America can be traced to a seminal cultural phenomenon: the hit 90s TV series Renegade. The first of many shows to bring the Eastern art of healing with needles into the mainstream, the series’ haunting intro continues to inspire idealistic young acupuncturists:
- Reno Raines. He was an acupuncturist, and good at his job. But he committed the ultimate sin, and testified against other acupuncturists gone bad, acupuncturists who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw performing acupuncture, a rogue acupuncturist, a Renegade.
Independently wealthy, Raines accepted only kindness and handwritten letters of thanks in exchange for his services. Riding alone on his motorcycle, Diana, Raines stopped in his rambles just long enough to thwart local corruption, do some acupuncture, and capture the heart of any woman foolish enough to fall for him. A movie featuring Reno Raines, rogue acupuncturist, is set to be released soon, tentatively titled The Acupuncturist Who Travels Around and Gets Into Adventures.
