Accidentally discovered during the boozy revelry of a Chinese pin factory’s New Year's party, acupuncture has since developed into both a potent alternative medicine and popular celebrity Jeopardy! category. Today’s Groupon gives you a pain-free way to stay pain-free: for $49, you get an initial acupuncture consultation and treatment, TDP lamp therapy, and a traditional Chinese massage at G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center, located in Beaverton and West Linn (a $195 value).
Specializing in the ancient traditions of Chinese medicine, G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center restores bodies to bucolic states of blissful balance. Clients meet with a knowledgeable acupuncturist during a consultation to determine the physical or spiritual targets for the soothing session. During the treatment, single-use, stainless-steel needles are inserted into specific areas of the body to stimulate the nervous system, improving energy flow, circulation, and physiological balance while attracting amorous porcupines with stylish spikiness. The needles' diameter is comparable to a human hair and insertion is relatively painless, with most patients reporting only a mild tingling sensation. In the 30-minute TDP lamp session, infrared light gently warms muscles in hopes of loosening stiff sinew to release the aches and pains knotted inside them. The 15-minute massage uses the traditional Chinese technique of Tunia—or pushing and grasping—to manipulate tired flesh, improving circulation and rubbing away the physical blocks that inhibit free movement with inconvenient tendon tollbooths. The invigorating, noninvasive treatments offered by this Groupon must be redeemed in a single session.
G & L Acupuncture and Wellness Center
The team of holistic healers at G & L Acupuncture and Wellness Center manipulates the body’s healing energies from the inside out with combinations of acupuncture, massage, and Chinese herbs. Disharmonious meridians wreaking havoc in the form of chronic pain, digestive issues, or headaches come into alignment with acupuncture or Tuina massage. Chinese herbs combine the benefits of plant-based medications with the joy of swallowing pills to maintain the therapeutic momentum of acupuncture and Tuina massage.
Although they adhere to the same philosophy of holistic healing, each member of the team brings their own unique skill set and experiences to the practice. Two acupuncturists with backgrounds working in a 500-bed Chinese hospital join together with an acupuncturist who trained in physical therapy and one who trained in applied physics.
