In the field of alternative medicine, acupuncture reigns supreme over alternative alternatives such as tightrope sleeping, interpretive clowning, and the swallowing of tiny anvils. Today’s Groupon to Prather Wellness Center will show you why. For new clients, $35 gets you a consultation, exam, and two 30-minute acupuncture sessions (a $235 value). Existing clients may redeem the Groupon toward three 30-minute acupuncture sessions (a $180 value).
Your initial appointment with Dr. Robert Prather and his associates begins with a consultation and discussion of your medical history and concerns, after which the doctor will conduct a physical evaluation to determine the most effective form of acupuncture. This might include EMI, or electro-meridian imaging, a technique that pulses a gentle electric current into specific pressure points in order to diagnose the body's energy flow. After discussing possible treatments, clients may opt for traditional needle acupuncture, laser acupuncture, or acupowder (a blend of all five acupuncture elements).
Western medicine has long been unable to explain why pincushions never get sick. Acupuncture helps us emulate the robust health of the pincushion by drawing on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body. By applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi gathers, acupuncture stimulates proper energy flow and relieves impediments to good health. This process has been shown to successfully treat ailments including chronic pain, headaches, asthma, allergies, and skin conditions, as well as relieving stress and improving overall health. Try acupuncture out for yourself with today's Groupon, and prove to your medieval doctor that there are alternatives to his usual prescription of leeches and mandrake roots.
This deal is not valid with insurance, and you must call in advance with your Groupon info to schedule your appointment. Prather Wellness Center is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 7 a.m.–11 a.m. and 1 p.m.–5 p.m., and Tuesdays 12 p.m.–5 p.m.

- I came to Dr. Prather, having been referred by a friend. He basically pealed [sic] me like an onion to find out the source of the problem, rather than just covering the symptoms….He cured me of a degenerative condition that had started to effect my whole body, not just my hands. – Rate MDs user on 4/13/09
- This is not a one-size fits all treatment program, the approach is personal and results are nothing short of extraordinary! – jennschindler, Kudzu
The Prather Practice

He helps to correct spinal imbalances and to treat sports injuries, headaches, and achy dorsal fins through chiropractic adjustments that might pair with massages in one of three dedicated spa rooms.
Also a licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Prather practices both traditional needle treatments and laser acupuncture, as well as microcurrent, meridian, and auricular therapy to stimulate healing through specific sites of the body. The signature Prather blood profile gifts patients with comprehensive information on all major organ systems through an extensive survey of more than 50 tests, and the wellness center's medical professionals also draw upon hair analysis, hormone testing, and radiographs to paint a picture of total body health.
