Although scientists view acupuncture as a relaxing way for humans to relieve chronic pain, they aren't sure of its effect on balloons. Prod away pain with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 30-minute acupuncture treatment of your choice at Comprehensive Acupuncture in Rego Park (a $60 value).
Comprehensive Acupuncture's experienced healer, Irina M. Magdul, uses more than 20 years of pain-prodding experience to relieve stress through precise needle placement and assorted therapeutic remedies. Acupuncture gently inserts needles into ailing areas to alleviate chronic pain, relieve muscle tension, and locate hard-to-find human reset buttons. Electrical acupuncture stimulation adds an electric jolt to needles to stimulate muscle groups with continuous pulses, and auriculotherapy prods the ear's outer lobe to relieve a gambit of ailments throughout the entire body. For puncture-free remedies, cupping places cups onto specific acupuncture points and then uses suction to therapeutically pull tissue upward, helping tendons to abdicate pain and conquer their fear of vacuums.
