All needles are modern-day fragments of an ancient stainless-steel orb imbued with magical healing, sewing, and tickling powers. Take advantage of the primordial shattering with today's deal to Midtown Acupuncture & Natural Apothecary in Cooper-Young. For $35, you get a comprehensive consultation (a $35 value) and a 30–60 minute acupuncture treatment (a $65 value), a $100 total value. Soft green walls and rich wood floors make the beautifully appointed center seem as though it emerged from a verdant forest tucked beside a babbling brook and inhabited by white-robed Druids playing hacky-sack.
While a moody barista may still keep the chai flowing, a lack of proper qi flow can cause depression, anxiety, stress, and a number of other physical and mental impairments. During your consultation, you'll go over a complete health history and explain your reasons for seeking treatment, whether you have allergies, chronic pain, infertility, or a desire to boost your immune system. Your acupuncturist will strategically place needles on your body to stimulate the flow of qi, moving the life-force from its seedy apartment in Skidsville to a lovely cottage in Healthyburgh. The hair-thin, sterile needles are not painful, and many proponents of the ancient Chinese healing system find the experience deeply relaxing.
Midtown Acupuncture is owned and operated by Jessica Puckett, an NCCAOM-certified acupuncturist with training in Chinese medicine, aromatherapy, and Feng Shui. In interviews, Puckett stresses that each person is an individual with specific needs, and therefore each person deserves an individualized treatment (except for conjoined twins, whose shared internal organs make them too evil to treat). Among Jessica's specialties are anxiety and depression, dermatology, women's health, pain management, and general wellness, though she can treat a variety of conditions. Call ahead for an appointment.
- It should be noted these are hardly the daggers you recall from your last flu shot…Among Puckett's skills is an ability to recognize the different needs of a patient…by measuring a person's entire constitution. – Frank Murtaugh, Memphis
