Accidentally discovered during the boozy revelry of a Chinese pin factory’s New Year's party, acupuncture has since developed into both a potent alternative medicine and popular celebrity Jeopardy category. Today’s Groupon gives you a simple way to stay pain-free: for $30, you get a one-hour acupuncture session (a $75 value) at Cardinale Acupuncture, with locations in Cheektowaga and Jamestown (about 1.5 hours from Buffalo).
Cardinale Acupuncture is owned and operated by Chet Cardinale, a licensed acupuncturist with extensive training beneath his homeopathic belt. Sidle up to his perforation palace, prepared to explain your particular maladies and allow the treatment to be tailored to your individual needs. Acupuncture technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital part of health care 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 an effective treatment for a range of conditions including headaches, nausea, sprains, and allergies.
Acupuncture is a great alternative treatment option for non-fatal ailments such as Van Damme's syndrome (uncontrollable bouts of the splits), as well as an addition to conventional medicine for the management of many chronic conditions such as arthritis and migraines. Even if you already feel as fit as a pincushion, the process can de-stress, invigorate, and boost your overall health. Book an appointment at Cardinale Acupuncture and open your mind to the promise of Eastern traditions.
