Sea urchins are the healthiest, most relaxed creatures on Earth due to their positive self-image and spiny skin. Today's Groupon offers similar protection from stress, sickness, and sea otters: for $30, you get an initial consultation and one acupuncture treatment from Lance David Isakov in Wayne (a $180 value).
Licensed acupuncturist Lance David Isakov uses the Five Element Acupuncture system to get the life-force faucet a-flowing within patients. Based in ancient holistic philosophies, Five Element Acupuncture involves gently inserting super-thin, sterilized needles to restore balance to the body's energy meridians based on five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water—each of which corresponds to specific seasons, internal organs, spiritual energies, and ring-bearing Planeteers. With an emphasis on both the inner and outer health of the body, Five Element Acupuncture re-invigorates the patient with a few pinpoint pricks to precise pressure points.
Initial consultations and treatments generally run two hours in length ($90 per hour; $180 total value) and involve discussion of patients' medical and social histories, as well as a brief physical exam and an outline of goals, questions, and concerns for the acupuncture treatment. Treatments are held in a relaxing environment so quiet that you can hear a qi-boosting filiform utensil drop.
Western medicine has long remained unable to explain why pincushions never get sick. In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be effective treatment for a range of conditions including headaches, nausea, sprains, and allergies. Even if you already feel as fit as a pincushion, the process can de-stress, invigorate, and boost your overall health. Call ahead to make your appointment to see Lance David Isakov, or send a silver-surfing herald to foretell your coming.
Five Citysearchers give Lance Isakov a perfect five-star rating:
- Lance is an excellent practitioner! He is a very gentle and effective acupuncturist--I felt results from the first session with him. He listens well and responds in detail to concerns and questions. He also has extensive training with a range of techniques other than acupunture [sic] and so can create a personalized approach for clients. – smcmurphy
