Like regularly practicing yoga or knitting a scarf for a voodoo doll, receiving acupuncture can be a great way to relax. Unwind from the daily grind with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two acupuncture treatments (up to a $95 value) at Costa Acupuncture.
Acupuncturists and herbalists Michael Costa, Carol Song, and Sun Cho sink teeny needles into tranquility seekers at Costa Acupuncture's community-centric healing haven. Each acupuncture session (a $25–$45 value/session and a $5 first-visit fee) begins with a consultation, which offers world-weary bodies a chance to call out grievances and answers to unasked trivia questions. Next, acupuncturists shallowly poke skin suits with thin, single-use spears for a nearly painless attack on aches, allergies, cravings, and stress. Clients relax in cozy recliners for the duration of their 40- to 60-minute sessions, including necessary time for rest and toe wiggling.
Costa Acupuncture's soothing community space allows for group treatments, collective healing, and a great chorus in surprise sing-alongs. Patients should make sure to wear comfy, loose-fitting threads that roll up to the elbows and knees for access to key energy points. Though frequent pelt pokes create the angriest bears, they can also help garner better results, so prodding professionals recommend weekly treatments.
At Costa Acupuncture, licensed acupuncturists and herbalists Michael Costa, Sun Cho, David Johnston, and Alison Doherty exercise their talents and experience to make holistic healing more attainable for the community at large. Founder Michael Costa has a master's degree in oriental medicine, and Cho is board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). The team addresses a variety of conditions, ranging from digestive, respiratory, and musculoskeletal maladies to emotional concerns. The caring crew also promotes better health with cupping treatments and herbal and nutritional supplements.
