Unlike talking tin men, humans cannot improve their bodies’ functional efficiency with a can of oil or the revelatory wisdom of Frank Morgan. Follow a brickless road to better nutrition with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a nutritional and herbal consultation, acupuncture treatment, and shoulder and neck massage from Heather Lounsbury, L.Ac., in Santa Monica (a $230 value).
Heather Lounsbury, a health-care adviser to several stars and a guest speaker for numerous media outlets, provides nutritional and herbal consultations that draw from a multitude of Eastern and Western practices. Through advice and recommendations of herbal aids (available at a 40% discount), Lounsbury equips clients with the tools they need to optimize their bodies' immune systems, emotional health, and internal compasses. During subsequent acupuncture treatments, hair-thin needles gently penetrate the body’s bulwarks, popping free-radical-rich bubble wrap and stress-causing balloon animals in the system’s narrowest nooks. A 15-minute massage wraps up the approximately 1.5-hour journey, soothing tense muscles in the neck and shoulders.
