What You'll Get
Naturally remedy health-related woes with today’s Groupon: for $35, you’ll get a 75-minute consultation and session at Point Acupuncture and Asian Medicine, a $70 value. Your initial session includes a plan-determining discussion and acupuncture treatment (which may involve a combo of cupping, moxibustion, and/or electric stimulation).
Hongji Lee Bessler and Kathy Carey, American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine alums, both hold licenses for Diplomat in Acupuncture and accreditation by National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The serene ambience (pastel-hued treatment walls, soothing lit votives, and airy space) adds an inviting, escapist touch to your expert treatments, like jumping out the window, gripping a passing cloud and never looking back.
Patients say sitting at a desk for eight hours a day at the desk-testing factory isn't the same after the amiable needle-wielders are through with you—pains vanish, stress decreases, fertility fertiles, and your guilt for ditching your prom date years ago disappears. A session also helps with nerve, muscle, and organ disorders, and fights fatigue and depression. The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, and back pain. Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment, as it is known to boost the immune system—just in time for flu season.

Reno Raines: Renegade Acupuncturist
The stunning popularity of acupuncture in modern America can be traced to a seminal cultural phenomenon: the hit 90s TV series Renegade. The first of many shows to bring the Eastern art of healing with needles into the mainstream, the series’ haunting intro continues to inspire idealistic young acupuncturists:
- Reno Raines. He was an acupuncturist, and good at his job. But he committed the ultimate sin, and testified against other acupuncturists gone bad, acupuncturists who tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw performing acupuncture, a rogue acupuncturist, a Renegade.
Independently wealthy, Raines accepted only kindness and handwritten letters of thanks in exchange for his services. Riding alone on his motorcycle, Diana, Raines stopped in his rambles just long enough to thwart local corruption, do some acupuncture, and capture the heart of any woman foolish enough to fall for him. A movie featuring Reno Raines, rogue acupuncturist, is set to be released soon, tentatively titled The Acupuncturist Who Travels Around and Gets Into Adventures.
