Just like desert cacti, bodies bedecked with needles are much less likely to be bear-hugged by random strangers. Reap the benefits of prickliness with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a choice of two general therapeutic acupuncture treatments or two stress-reducing acupuncture sessions at Mind Body Spirit Wellness (up to a $275 value each).
Dr. Maiysha Clairborne helms Mind Body Spirit as a board-certified family physician boasting nearly a decade of experience. Each acupuncture treatment utilizes Eastern and alternative methods to provide a holistic approach to health and commences with a demystifying consultation. General therapeutic acupuncture treatments last 30–45 minutes. Clients soothe to tranquilizing ambient music while thin, sterile needles are skillfully applied to trigger focused sources of hormones and chemicals in the body, stimulating the body's ability to heal itself. Treatments can diminish the effects of ailments such as asthma, allergies, insomnia, headaches, cramps, and back pain, but patients have also turned to acupuncture for smoking cessation, weight loss, and preparation for jousting matches fought with minuscule lances.
Stress-reducing acupuncture channels energy flow to its proper course, unleashing endorphins to calm restless minds and soothe bodies tenser than the rubber-band stretch test. During the two tension-depleting sessions, the acupuncturist helps transform worrywarts into cool-headed humans, ready to shoulder daily duties with calmness and clarity.
