Practitioners of holistic medicine heal patients with Eastern traditions, which include balancing energy flow and not eating socks filled with Legos. Leave Lego sock sausages on the plate with today's Groupon: for $30, you get your choice of restorative services—one acupuncture session (an $80 value), five tai chi classes (a $75 value), or five qigong classes (a $75 value)—at Golden Monkey Healing in Sherman Oaks.
Golden Monkey Healing's holistic specialists follow Chinese philosophies preaching that one's health and well-being is determined by his or her mental balance and attunement to the earth. During a single acupuncture session, a trained pin-planter will place needles along specific energy pathways, known as meridians, to unclog blocked energy faucets. Test muscle memory and integrate mind, body, and spirit in tai chi lessons, or improve energy flow in qigong.
- [His] vibe, energy and general demeanor is chill, soothing and certainly exactly what you want when you're about to get stuck with needles and/or suction-cupped to death. I felt more comfortable there in five minutes than I did at my other clinic. – Anne H., Yelp
- Very cool place with lots of good classes. – Jane S., Yelp
