Sea urchins are the healthiest, most relaxed creatures on earth due to their positive self-image and spiny skin. Get similar protection from stress, sickness, and sea otters with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a 90-minute wellness survey from Kim Knight, M.Ac.O.M., L.Ac., which includes a health-history consultation and a full-body acupuncture session with a customized treatment (such as tuina, moxibustion, guasha, cupping, or Chinese herbal therapy) (up to a $200 total value).
The Chinese mapped a network of channels through which energy, or chi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that uneven flow of energy may cause disease and pain. Kim Knight is a highly experienced, educated, and licensed acupuncturist well versed in Chinese herbal medicine and the pathways to physical healing. Through a focus on open patient-practitioner communication, Kim tries to gain an understanding of people's health backgrounds, lifestyle habits, and diets in order to see what habits may be leading them down a road of pain.
With contextual understanding, she customizes an acupuncture session that includes either the gliding and kneading of soothing tuina massage, the gentle tissue manipulation of cupping to revitalize body and muscles and decrease chronic pain, or the warmth-bringing properties of moxibustion. She may also recommend guasha or Chinese herbal therapy as part of your treatment. Postprocedure, Kim will also send clients off with a full holistic report and personalized care plan.
The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture may be an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, and back pain. Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment, as it is believed to boost the immune system—just in time for the 2011 spring-fever season. A session with Kim may leave you feeling physically refreshed and mentally informed as to what adjustments you can make in your life to remain healthy.
Must schedule your appointment in advance. Chinese herbal therapy does not include the price of the herbs.
