Acupuncture can ease the aches and pains caused by working on your feet all day and spending all night in an alley full of rocks and garbage. Pick yourself up with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $35 for one acupuncture treatment (a $70 value)
- $64 for two acupuncture treatments and one session of cupping or gua sha (a $190 value)
The first acupuncture visit lasts about 90 minutes and includes a complete health consultation; the second visit lasts 45–60 minutes. The licensed acupuncturist can enhance one of the two visits with either cupping or gua sha. With cupping, the practitioner places heated glass cups on the back, where they apply gentle suction to skin, helping bolster circulation. Alternatively, during gua sha sessions, the practitioner pulls a smooth-edged instrument across lubricated skin, applying pressure to help address chronic pain.
Healing Hands Therapy Center
Aquarium maintenance might seem like a strange background for an expert in neuromuscular therapy and deep-tissue massage, but that's exactly how massage therapist Lynne Luckow got her start. She decided to change careers after reading about the health benefits of massage and went on to study anatomy, physiology, and medical massage at Aesthetics University. She opened Healing Hands Therapy Center in 1993 and continued her training with renowned professionals in the field of alternative medicine. Eventually, she grew her practice to the point where she was working 12 hours a day, six days a week, roughly the amount of time it takes to give a full-body massage to a really big whale. Luckow knew it was time to expand: the center is now home to eight highly trained massage therapists, who earned it nominations in CityVoter's Best Massage category in 2011.
In addition to performing massages, Luckow promotes physical and emotional healing with Ayurvedic counseling and meditation. She has further rounded out her team with licensed acupuncturist Brenda Sherman, who holds a Master of Science in acupuncture and oriental medicine.
