Accidentally discovered during the boozy revelry of a Chinese pin factory’s New Year's party, acupuncture has since developed into both a potent alternative medicine and popular celebrity Jeopardy! category. Today’s Groupon gives you a pain-free way to stay pain-free: for $40, you get a 90-minute acupuncture session at Jade Integrated Health (an $85 value).
Jade Integrated Health bolsters clients' physical and mental well-being with alternative healing therapies. Relieve a variety of ailments in 90 minutes of acupuncture, an ancient Chinese therapy that intends to even the flow of energy through the body by inserting thin medical pins into various pressure points. Customers might also notice a reduction in chronic pain, allergies, headaches, and inflated balloon collections after the session. Medical mavens at the World Health Organization recognize this almost painless procedure as an effective treatment for a number of physical conditions, including resolving emotional difficulties and kicking addictions. John Charlebois, a licensed pin wielder who holds a master of science in oriental medicine, conducts all acupuncture sessions with the tenderness of an overcooked green bean.
