Sea urchins are the healthiest, most relaxed creatures on earth due to their positive self-image and spiny skin. Today's Groupon offers similar protection from stress, sickness, and sea otters. For $40, you get a 90-minute acupuncture session and consultation (a $105 value) at Four Winds Acupuncture, located downtown on 8th Street.
Before your treatment begins, you'll enjoy a 30-minute consultation (a $40 value) with Four Winds' owner and operator, Alexandra Rose. Rose earned her master’s of science in Oriental medicine from Samra University in California before going on to practice acupuncture at four hospitals in Beijing in 2006, where she further honed her needlework and knowledge of the human body. During your consultation, she’ll discuss with you your goals for treatment, medical history, any vitamins or supplements you’re taking, and any Lost theories you may have regarding the Man in Black. Rose will then use the information gathered during this consultation to tailor 60 minutes of acupuncture treatment (a $65 value) to your specific health needs. The needles used in acupuncture are hair-thin so that you'll hardly feel their insertion and are used in small quantities unless you've recently escaped from the Matrix. Many report finding the treatment incredibly relaxing.
Acupuncture can be ideal for treating a number of tricky maladies, especially if they’re not easily treated by Western medicine or if you’re sick of the constant consumption of pills in all shapes, sizes, and suppositories. The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, post-penguin depression, fat Elvis pelvis, and back pain. Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment, as it is known to boost the immune system. Rose specializes in treatments for pain management, weight loss, and quitting smoking, though you can discuss other complaints with her in detail during your consultation. Call ahead to schedule your appointment—or have it couriered via bonded city barbershop quartet.
