Acupuncture is said to unblock the body’s energy pathways, similar to the way a busy sidewalk is easily cleared by poking pedestrians with a javelin. Remove troublesome obstacles with today’s Groupon at Michigan Acu Clinic in Ypsilanti. Choose between the following options:

At Michigan Acu Clinic, highly trained experts draw upon generations of holistic Chinese healing to pinch, poke, and knead away aches and ailments. Reflexology sees a therapist dexterously applying pressure to clients’ feet, striving to stimulate a system of reflex areas and reopen the rundown water slide hidden in the big toe of every human being. The treatment soothingly attempts to align one’s chi, also known as universal life energy, and improve overall health.
Alternatively, the acupuncture treatment begins with a 20-minute physical assessment, where a nationally certified acupuncturist with a minimum of 10 years of experience inspects tongues, palpates acupoints, and searches under top hats to evaluate outward signs of chi for diagnostic purposes. The acupuncturist then inserts about 10–15 sterile, razor-thin needles into precise points along the corpus during a 40-minute needling process that aims to restore and regulate the natural flow of energy throughout the body. Aside from lifting these meridian blockages, the gentle jab of an acupuncturist is believed to help correct myriad physical and emotional maladies, such as depression, fertility issues, and lackadaisical Hellraiser costumes.
