Acupuncture is said to unblock the body’s energy pathways, similar to the way a busy sidewalk is easily cleared by poking pedestrians with a javelin. Remove troublesome obstacles with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a pretreatment consultation (a $55 value), hot-stone therapy (a $50 value), a natural infrared treatment (a $30 value), tui na (a $40 value), and acupuncture (a $75 value) at Chan Acupuncture Clinic in Thousand Oaks (a $250 total value).
Chan Acupuncture Clinic's father-daughter duo, Chan and Esther Kim, rely on ancient Chinese medicinal techniques to boost the body's health and help it heal from pain, stress, digestive issues, and addictions. After an initial consultation pinpoints the best pin points for each client's complaints—whether arthritis or a migraine caused by the city's enormous wind chime—the Kims stack backs with hot stones to open and increase the flow of chi energy throughout the body. Natural infrared heat lamps assist in this process. Once gridlocked energy has been unclogged, the clinic's crew massages meridians using the pressure and strokes of tui na. Finally, Chan and Esther strategically place tiny, ultra-thin needles in precise locations along the body, which stimulates a natural internal-healing process. 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.
Chan Acupuncture Clinic
The father-and-daughter team behind Chan Acupuncture Clinic adapt their holistic healing treatments to each client, relieving pains and stresses via time-tested techniques. Using traditional acupuncture and electro-acupuncture—which involves electrical pulses—they help restore the flow of energy throughout the body. Related techniques include cupping, acupressure, and gua sha—in which a rounded object is used to deliver short, brisk strokes to a specific meridian. Chan Acupuncture offers convenient, flexible scheduling as yet another means of reducing stress, and a fully stocked natural and raw herbal pharmacy to aid in quests for wellness.
