Acupuncture treatments are used to relieve pain, increase energy, and improve well-being, unlike normal puncture treatments, which are only used when patients are filled with helium. Let your ailments float away with today's Groupon: for $59, you get an initial exam and acupuncture treatment at Shin Wellness in Midtown (a $130 value).
Shin Wellness's certified acupuncturist Chad Bailey fuses his extensive knowledge of traditional oriental medicine with safe herbal injestibles and renewing holistic procedures to help alleviate chronic pain, digestive difficulties, headaches, allergies, stress, and many other ailments. After taking a thorough inventory of your corporeal condition and concerns, Bailey will gently insert a selection of small, thin needles into the corresponding acupuncture points, dispersing excess energy, bolstering weak energy, and silencing bossy, opinionated energy. The treatment lasts about an hour.
Discovered in China around 3,000 BC, acupuncture aims to invigorate the body's chi flow, which can be disrupted by work-induced stress and painful badminton injuries. The simple treatments at Shin Wellness accelerate chi flow to balance off-kilter meridians and unclog energy channels.
As an 11-year-old girl, Doctor of Chiropractic Wendy Gallego was diagnosed with scoliosis. The painful curvature of her spine immediately began to interfere with her life, forcing her to drop out of gymnastics and wear a back brace. After years of chronic discomfort, a college friend suggested that she visit a chiropractor, and she finally began to find relief from her symptoms. More importantly, she was inspired by her chiropractor's whole-body approach to wellness, which emphasized nutrition and lifestyle as well as treatment. This drove her to become a chiropractor herself while formulating the philosophy that "people should not be perceived as separately functioning parts, but rather as a complex structure of interdependent systems." By founding Shin Wellness, she sought to create a holistic health care center that addressed physical as well as mental health.
Embracing Western and Eastern treatment modalities, Dr. Gallego looks for instructors and therapists with more than technical proficiency and a photographic recollection of the periodic table. She claims that "there's a quality that comes with being a healer," and she looks for that passion in all her prospective employees, whether they will be performing massages, conducting hypnotherapy sessions, or leading Pilates classes.
