Like the three branches of government, bodies, minds, and souls often find themselves in contentious disagreement over how much wine is too much wine in a voting booth. Reconcile triune tribunals with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two acupuncture treatments at Blue Lotus Acupuncture in Jacksonville Beach (up to a $150 value).
Blue Lotus Acupuncture's experienced, licensed practitioners, Patti Menefee and Chris Rohman, employ needles that are barely larger than a human hair to soothe anatomies in acupuncture sessions. During an initial consultation, skilled needle-wielders examine individual symptoms and health history to suss out a comprehensive course of treatment. Employing the principles of traditional Chinese medicine—a system of healing that, like poetry and the feigned enjoyment of poetry, dates back thousands of years—Blue Lotus’s practitioners finagle the flow of chi through energy meridians, alleviating ailments as varied as migraines, myopia, and sciatica. The careful placement of sterile, single-use needles helps to unblock chi pileups, restoring balance to the body’s energies and gently prodding its natural healing processes. Treatments generally run for up to 60 minutes, though clients should allot 90 minutes for the first appointment to ensure enough time for the initial consultation, examination, and ceremonial arm-wrestling match with the ghost of Kublai Khan.
Though Blue Lotus Acupuncture sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Blue Lotus Acupuncture
At Blue Lotus Acupuncture, practitioners Patti Menefee and Chris Rohman stem pain and discomfort by unblocking the body's energy pathways, or meridians. Grounding their practice in the tenets of ancient Chinese medicine, Patti and Chris free obstructions in chi through acupuncture, traditional Chinese herbs, moxibustion, and cupping. The center also offers tuina, a massage technique that integrates acupoints as well as shoni shin.
