Despite the remarkable health benefits of acupuncture, far too many Americans associate needles with pain and ill-conceived spring break tattoos of Eleanor Roosevelt gone wild. Today's Groupon provides the same benefits with an alternate methodology: for $39, you get 90 minutes of needle-free acupressure Amma Therapy massage at Pulse Holistic Health (an $80 value) in the North End.
Amma Therapy is an energetic massage that combines deep-tissue massage techniques with the activation of specific acupressure points to revive and relax the body. As with acupuncture, Amma Massage Therapy disencumbers blockages of Qi, the life force that flows through every human body. And as with cereal bars, it makes it happen with well-trained hands rather than silverware. Each 90-minute session begins with a short diagnostic using Traditional Chinese Medicine methods so that Pulse Holistic Health can customize the treatment to your specific needs and concerns. Therapists might also recommend a regimen of Chinese herbs to help keep the Qi circulating through your body unhindered by tollbooths or Pac-Man ghosts.
Massage therapist Nathan Mandigo was trained as an Amma Massage Therapist at The Wellspring School for the Healing Arts and incorporates his knowledge of physics with his understanding of individual and universal Qi movement. He specializes in treating musculoskeletal issues, post-surgical recovery, and many forms of psycho-spiritual imbalances such as depression, general surliness, and an inability to parallel park. Dispel the pain of a long day catching cannonballs with your stomach with today's Groupon to Pulse Holistic Health.
