Popping painkillers is a risky way to deal with headaches and stress, and no amount of allergy medication relieves symptoms when you're stuck in a fierce pollen-storm. While many know that acupuncture is used to treat chronic pain, it can also treat stress, mood disorders, and a host of other ailments. Because acupuncture promotes the body’s self-healing process, even your lethargy or grumpy disposition can turn around with acupuncture therapy. With today's Groupon to Eric Hartmann Acupuncture, $37 gets you a 60-minute acupuncture session (a $90 value)—find out what acupuncture could do for you.
It’s safe to call Eric Hartmann a master artisan of fine needles; he holds a master's from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, Maryland, and is a diplomat of acupuncture through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Not your mother's needlepoint, the classical five-element acupuncture that Eric practices is an approach to healing the core causes of symptoms and treating the whole person. Eric will talk with you about your unique situation and check your vital signs to diagnose you before using ultra-thin needles to activate your qi along strategic points. Eric will also practice direct moxibustion, a therapy that uses herbs to stimulate circulation through acupuncture points and keep you nice and toasty in those winter months.
In addition to being a master of needlecraft, Eric Hartmann is also a man of intrigue. If you like to make phone calls using your shoephone, you'll love visiting Eric's unassuming practice. Located in a charming renovated home in the bustling artist community of Capitol Hill, Eric's practice is marked not by a sign, but by a bright-red front door. Call ahead for the passcode to get into the house. Make yourself at home in the vibrant treatment room, decorated with warm yellows and red Eastern accents.

Reno Raines: Renegade Acupuncturist
The stunning popularity of acupuncture in modern America can be traced to a seminal cultural phenomenon: the hit ’90s TV series Renegade. The first of many shows to bring the Eastern art of healing with needles into the mainstream, the series’ haunting intro continues to inspire idealistic young acupuncturists:
- Reno Raines. He was an acupuncturist, and good at his job. But he committed the ultimate sin, and testified against other acupuncturists gone bad, acupuncturists who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw performing acupuncture, a rogue acupuncturist, a Renegade.
Independently wealthy, Raines accepted only kindness and handwritten letters of thanks in exchange for his services. Riding alone on his motorcycle, Diana, Raines stopped in his rambles just long enough to thwart local corruption, do some acupuncture, and capture the heart of any woman foolish enough to fall for him. A movie featuring Reno Raines, rogue acupuncturist, is set to be released soon, tentatively titled The Acupuncturist Who Travels Around and Gets Into Adventures.
