What You'll Get
Jumpstart stagnant qi or manage chronic pain at Jing Acupuncture & Herbal Pharmacy. With today's Groupon, $40 gets you a consultation, exam, nutrition counseling, and acupuncture session (a $85 value). Acupuncture can treat or reduce symptoms of immune system disorders, allergies, anxiety, skin conditions, pain, digestive disorders, fatigue, butterfingers, diver's remorse, and more. Whether you want to dance at your sister's wedding on rollerskates, or rid yourself of anxiety related to accurate Mayan predictions, the services at Jing can help heal you.
Before treatment begins with the sound of a traditional acupuncture gong, you'll take a detailed intake questionnaire to assess your health and the best treatment plan before beginning your 60-minute session. Traditional Chinese medicine works by correcting imbalances in the body; acupuncture targets the channels through which your qi, or life-force, flows. If you're a bit squeamish about needles, bear in mind that you can fit 30 acupuncture needles into the average hypodermic needle. These tiny needles treat mental, emotional, and physical ailments.

Jing is a fairly new establishment, so there aren't many reviews yet. Check out some testimonials from Jing's site:
- I have had sinus problems and infections for as long as I can remember and was chronic user of OTC medications like Claritin and Zyrtec. I was truly amazed at the results! I began treatment on 07-07-09 and had seven weekly treatments plus herbal supplements since. The infection went away (without antibiotics) and I have been off Zyrtec for about 2 months and have have [sic] no significant reoccurrence. – Marsha S.
- Massage over the past weeks was beginning to help with pain that caused many sleepless nights. But your use of massage, acupuncture and electronic stimulation finally did the trick. Sleep without waking up due to lower back pain! – Ed C.
Reno Raines: Renegade Acupuncturist
The stunning popularity of acupuncture in modern America can be traced to a seminal cultural phenomenon: the hit 90s TV series Renegade. The first of many shows to bring the Eastern art of healing with needles into the mainstream, the series’ haunting intro continues to inspire idealistic young acupuncturists:
- Reno Raines. He was an acupuncturist, and good at his job. But he committed the ultimate sin, and testified against other acupuncturists gone bad, acupuncturists who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw performing acupuncture, a rogue acupuncturist, a Renegade.
Independently wealthy, Raines accepted only kindness and handwritten letters of thanks in exchange for his services. Riding alone on his motorcycle, Diana, Raines stopped in his rambles just long enough to thwart local corruption, do some acupuncture, and capture the heart of any woman foolish enough to fall for him. A movie featuring Reno Raines, rogue acupuncturist, is set to be released soon, tentatively titled The Acupuncturist Who Travels Around and Gets Into Adventures.
