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 $32, you get a 90-minute acupuncture treatment at Fraser Acupuncture Centre (a $65 value).
Fraser Acupuncture Centre's certified staff restores balance to off-kilter bodies using traditional Chinese acupuncture techniques that date back more than 2,500 years. Over the course of 90 minutes, expert hands insert small, sterile, disposable needles into the skin to stimulate key points across the body's energy pathways, helping to bolster health and body function. With minimal discomfort, many conditions such as arthritis, allergies, and stress can begin to diminish as energy flows freely, like water from an overly emotional fire hydrant, and the body returns to a more balanced state. Clients can emerge from the sessions with stronger immune systems, less pain, and restored health and well-being. Erin Fraser, the centre's resident acupuncture practitioner, tackles chronic pain with a master's degree in Oriental medicine and membership to the Saskatchewan Acupuncture Association.
