In recent years, acupuncture has grown in popularity both as a potent alternative medicine and a celebrity Jeopardy category. Today’s Groupon gives you a pain-free way to stay pain-free: for $35, you get a one-hour session, including a consultation, at Ballston Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Arlington.
Dr. Vu Nguyen and Dr. Sam Masri are the leading men at the center. Both are certified acupuncturists who draw upon the power generated by their high fives for strength. Your visit starts with an initial consultation, where you can discuss your treatment goals for this ancient healing technique. After a comprehensive exam, your pinpointed relief begins. A master acupuncturist will use years of experience to seek and destroy ailments discussed in the earlier consultation, while improving overall wellness. The consolation and exam together take one hour.
Western medicine has long remained unable to explain why pincushions never get sick. With the growing popularity of acupuncture, the answer has become self-evident. The technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital part of healthcare in Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, and other countries. It works by applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and relieving impediments to good health. In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be effective treatment for a range of conditions including headaches, nausea, sprains, and allergies. Even if you already feel as fit as a pincushion, the process can de-stress, invigorate, and boost your overall health.
