Acupuncture treatments are used to relieve pain, increase energy, and improve well-being, unlike normal puncture treatments, which are only used when patients are filled with helium. Let your ailments float away with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour acupuncture session at Desert Health Acupuncture Clinic (an $85 value).

Nationally certified acupuncturists Dr. Abbey Theroux and Dr. Erin Keetso help treat pain, hormonal imbalances, and a host of other maladies with holistic ancient Chinese acupuncture techniques. During a 15-minute initial consultation, a skilled pin guru gleans details of patients' health histories, helping them pick which pressure points and tattooed bull's-eyes to target during the treatment. Then patrons lie down on a comfortable table before Doctors tap hair-thin, disposable needles into the preselected points over the course of a few minutes. Clients may feel a localized dull ache or a series of warm tingling sensations as they nap or lie quietly for 30–45 minutes, allowing the needles time to invigorate their energy centers.

After 30¬–45 minutes, the pins are removed, and clients can resume everyday activities, such as jumping on waterbeds or chest bumping helium balloons. Desert Health recommends that clients eat an hour before treatment, and also asks that they wear clothing with easy access to the elbows and knees. It’s also common for clients to feel tired after a session, so energy-intensive errands and pro thumb-wrestling tournaments should be scheduled accordingly.

Dr. Nelson is a treasure! She was very patient with me and answered all of my questions about acupuncture since it was my first time trying it. She explained what she was doing and why and it really helped me understand the process and relax into it. I would recommend her services to everyone!
