Acupuncture needles are different than sewing needles, in that they are much tinier and can't be used to attach patches of fake fur to a T-shirt. Feel the difference with this Groupon.

During acupuncture sessions, patrons give a complete medical history, focusing on holistic health and the way stress impacts the body. Then they spend 15–20 minutes discussing their health issues with the acupuncturist. The acupuncturist conducts an examination of the pulse, abdomen, and tongue before delving into the acupuncture treatment. When needles hit the skin, they send a dull ache into the body. Clients may feel tingling throughout their musculature, depending on which energy channels are affected. After sessions, patrons often report feeling blissfully content as the effects of the therapy clear their minds and soothe the body.
Dancing Phoenix Wellness
For Sarah Wilde, therapy is both a passion and a pursuit. Her journey of healing began when she was a student at the Art Institute of Chicago and found her paintings to be a form of personal therapy. She splashed acrylics onto canvas and mixed them with bits of sand and leaves, creating swirling gases in the cosmos as a way of connecting her inner life with the outside world.
Once Sarah’s studies came to an end, she directed her passion into massage therapy to help people to achieve the same wellness she felt while painting. She explored a variety of Eastern medicine techniques, including acupuncture, reiki, and energy medicine treatments, and she founded Dancing Phoenix Wellness, named for a mythical bird that, according to a Chinese proverb, ushers in peace and tranquility when it dances and does the Worm. Patrons sip complimentary tea while they wait for treatments in a room bathed in the soft glow of tea lights and filled with the scent of eucalyptus and lavender aromatherapy oils.
