What You'll Get
As of May 9, 2011: Due to staffing changes, Joy of Raphael is no longer able to offer the services in either option below. In place of these services, customers may receive an initial naturopathic appointment with an ionic foot bath or a package of four ionic foot baths.
Before acupuncture, people used needles to play billiards, but the practice became outdated when the balls kept deflating. Give needles a better name with today's Groupon to Joy of Raphael in Carmel. Choose between two options:
- For $60, you get one initial acupuncture session (a $125 value) and a far-infrared-sauna session (a $40 value) (a $165 total value).
- For $65, you get one initial acupuncture session (a $125 value) and an ionic foot bath (a $45 value) (a $170 total value).
Joy of Raphael battles patient pain and emotional stress, wielding a variety of holistic wellness treatments. Acupuncture traces its roots back to ancient China, much like bronze ritual vessels and cornucopias of wax fruit. After completing a survey of questions related to lifestyle habits, stress, and appetite, Dr. Harry Shao will perform a brief examination to determine health needs. During treatment, the doctor inserts 6–12 needles into the body, reversing the unhealthy effects of inserting 6–12 butterscotch blondies into the maw. Acupuncture, which regulates the vital human energy called qi, helps with issues such as asthma, stress, weight regulation, and arthritis. A session at the far infrared sauna allows infrared light to penetrate the skin and release toxins, making the body cleaner than a second-grade play. In 45 minutes (plus an additional 45 minutes for a private shower), pain, sickness, and up to 300 calories can evaporate into the ether (with up to 500 more calories burned throughout the day due to increased metobolism). The Aqua Chi ionic footbath calibrates the human body's fluids to their proper balance.
In addition to the choice of services, this Groupon is good for 35% off all detox supplements. Cleanse the body at Joy of Raphael and never again endure the discomfort of standing beneath an all-detergent waterfall.
