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 $35, you get a 60-minute wellness session with Matthew Sanchez, DOM (a $100 value) that includes the following:
- Tui na massage treatment
- Acupuncture treatment
As a master-trained doctor of oriental medicine, Matthew Sanchez exacts ailment-targeting precision in acupuncture treatments in the Master Tung style and tui na massage techniques he learned in Beijing. With each individualized treatment session, Dr. Sanchez begins with a detailed assessment to evaluate patient health and design a treatment package as well tailored as a plaster suit. With Master Tung–style acupuncture, Dr. Sanchez uses precise needle insertion at points corresponding to affected areas to clear energetic pathways and deflate subdermal balloon animals. Tui na massage aims to naturally enhance health by kneading and massaging areas between the patient’s joints.
