What You'll Get
Acupuncture treatments are used to relieve pain, increase energy, and improve well-being, unlike normal puncture treatments, which are only used when patients are filled with helium. Let ailments float away with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a one-hour acupuncture treatment and a 30-minute consultation at Pinecrest Wellness Center in Annandale (a $125 value).
Pinecrest Wellness Center's licensed acupuncturist Bill Reddy treats patients with a four-tiered approach that incorporates acupuncture, diet and supplementation, lifestyle analysis, and herbology. Sessions begin with a one-hour acupuncture treatment, during which sporadically placed needles lightly penetrate the skin to help alleviate pain and pressure. Patients also receive a 30-minute diagnostic consultation, the results of which Bill uses to make nutritional and supplemental recommendations, as well as suggestions for at-home exercises and stretches to curb painful symptoms resulting from playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey at the apex of a rocky hill.

About Pinecrest Wellness Center
Even if they both suffer from a sore back, no two patients are treated the same way at Pinecrest Wellness Center. Clinic director Dr. Ronald Weinstein sees every person as a fresh case, and strives not only to counteract symptoms, but to trace them back to their source in order to prevent them from returning. He and his team combine several disciplines—including chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and acupuncture from Bill Reddy—to reach this goal. A course of treatment might cover rehabilitative exercises, spinal adjustments, or even relaxing massages from Linda Lee, whose experience as an international massage therapist has led her to clients such as Lady Gaga and Gavin Rossdale. And, to ensure patients are really on the road to recovery, the staff also takes the time to discuss nutrition and suggest healthier habits, such as making s'mores with cardboard instead of graham crackers.
