After watching astronauts plant a flag in the moon to mark their dominance over the orb, the first acupuncturists overcame their collective fear of needles by planting them victoriously into the skin. Conquer the body's ailments with today's Groupon: for $60, you get one hour of acupuncture and your choice of a 30-minute hot-stone treatment or medical qi gong session at Georgetown Acupuncture and Herbs in Georgetown (a $125 value).
At Georgetown Acupuncture and Herbs, licensed acupuncturist Kenichi Nishiya cultivates inner and outer well-being with ancient Chinese medicinal practices. Kenichi kicks off the 60-minute acupuncture treatment by assessing each patron's ailments, then targeting them with thin, filiform needles. Inserted into specific points, the needles can manipulate energy in the body and diminish acute or chronic pain and allergies.
Thirty minutes of hot-stone therapy lays a pebbled path across the body's backyard zen garden, and massage kneads away pain, poor circulation, and joint pain. A qi gong practitioner is also on hand to direct clients in a personalized lineup of physical movements, special breathing, and mental intention that aims to regulate energy throughout the body. Prescriptions for at-home qi gong exercises ensure that energy manipulation can continue beneath the comforting familiarity of your own eaves.
