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 an acupuncture treatment with cupping and heating as well as an herbal consultation (a $120 total value) at Gao's Acupuncture & Herbal Therapy Center in Rockville.
Gao's stable of expert practitioners is experienced in the field of traditional chinese medicine and capable of uniting an individual's yin and yang to keep the body in balance. The roughly one-hour session features a trifecta of treatments. During acupuncture, tiny, painless, filiform needles are inserted into specific points of the body to help circulate the flow of Qi, known as the body's energy force. The wellness marathon continues with a heating treatment, which uses heat to help release pain and loosen squeaky hinges. A cupping treatment strategically places suction cups on your back to improve circulation, open up the lungs and chest, and even help digestive problems. Meanwhile, an herbal consultation will address specific needs and goals, and may include the practitioner prescribing a combination of herbs to create a preventive medicine plan.
Gao's Acupuncture & Herbal Therapy Center's all-natural approach uses an arsenal of ancient healing practices dating back 3,000 years to ensure a holistic approach. These acupuncture treatments may help ease asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual disorders, back pain, stress, and a surplus of other ailments. Treat yourself to a healthier self, and maybe your healthier self will return the favor with the healthiest of all self's selfs.

Using techniques that have been perfected over the past three millennia, licensed acupuncturists and traditional Chinese medicine practitioners Zhongliang and Yi Gao combat ailments with natural healing. Their treatments include massage, traditional acupuncture, and cupping, an alternative form of acupuncture that eschews needles for manually suctioned cups. They also recommend teas or powder-filled capsules from their herbal stores to help cleanse toxins and espresso beans from bodily systems.
