Similar to old pennies, environmental toxins are ubiquitous, harmful if swallowed, and may contain trace amounts of Abraham Lincoln. Cleanse away the past with today’s Groupon to Dr. Tommy Ray Thompson, DC in West Chester. Choose from the following options:

With two medical degrees—botanical and naturopathic medicine— and 300 hours of acupuncture practice under his lab coat, Dr. Tommy Ray Thompson, DC takes down a slew of maladies and disorders using the holistic healing powers of detoxifying footbaths and acupuncture sessions. Guests can indulge in ancient acupuncture therapy, in which the steady-handed doc carefully places hair-thin needles along specific corporeal points or “channels.” Keen to the subtle pricks, these bodily highways transform into intravenous postmen, sending signals to internal organs via the body’s system of carrier pigeons. Each 20-minute session sends tidal waves of relaxation from head to toe while targeting chronic pain and stress.
Alternatively, low-level electrical currents twist and swirl through the warm and inviting waves of the ionic footbath, which beckons shoe-fillers to abscond from their sneakers or cross-country skis and submerge themselves in a pool of negatively charged ions. The wavelengths shimmy through the tub until absorbed by the soles and make their way through internal waterways to coax harmful toxins out of the body.
