Perfect health is more than just the bodily absence of disease-bunnies; it's the overall well-being of ones physical, psychological, and emotional biospheres. Today's Groupon will get these spheres in harmony with an integrated, holistic blend of acupuncture and massage at Renew Integrative Health Center for $39 (a $135 value). In case you are worried that your bones will escape and join the circus if your body relaxes too much, you can always split your acupuncture treatment and massage into two separate visits.
Renew Integrative Health Center’s team of Ph.D’s, M.D.’s, physical therapists, and specialists recommend that you start by alleviating your unique ailments with your acupuncture session. The Chinese mapped a network of channels through which energy, or qi, navigates the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net before well-connected politicians copyrighted the moniker, these channels revealed that an uneven flow of energy could cause disease and pain. Your initial acupuncture session will last about 30 minutes as your doctor determines an accurate diagnosis, gently inserts hair-thin sterilized needles into specific pressure points, and possibly supplements your treatment with a herbal prescription, nutrition counseling, or exercise recommendations. Your treatment will close with a soothing fifty-minute massage administered by expert Pacific Beach therapists.
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 the long-awaited bubonic plague 2: bubonic boogaloo. Combined with Renew’s muscle-loosening massage, your inner temple will feel like it’s had a new koi pond installed by master fountain architects.

Like a restaurant uniting different cuisines to find the best blends of flavor, Renew Integrative Health Center combines Western and alternative medicines to develop treatment plans for each patient that can meet all of their needs. Patients can choose the type of doctor that most closely reflects their own thoughts about health, and that doctor then collaborates with the rest of the Renew team. Together, they aim to help patients achieve and sustain optimal health, applying the diverse skill set they collectively possess: naturopathy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, physical therapy, counseling, massage, and more. Lifestyle change receives particular emphasis, taking the form of weight loss, anti-aging treatments, or getting patients to stop eating their stress balls.
