Accidentally discovered during the boozy revelry of a Chinese pin factory’s New Year's party, acupuncture has since developed into both a potent alternative medicine and popular celebrity Jeopardy! category. Today’s Groupon gives you a pain-free way to stay pain-free: for $35, you get a consultation, exam, and one acupuncture or acupressure session at Solaris Acupuncture in Devon (an $85 value).
Nancy R. Radice of Solaris Acupuncture prods away pain using sterile needles and potent pressure techniques. Radice begins each treatment with a review of each patient's medical history and current concerns, zeroing in on the potential sources of various ailments—chronic pain, stress, anxiety, clown hatred, etc. Then, relief seekers elect either an acupuncture treatment, enhanced by the use of sterile, single-use needles, or an acupressure session, designed to deconstruct energy flow blockages by hand. Both full-body treatments conclude with an optional 10-minute massage or cupping, both of which aid in delivering clients to a peaceful state unencumbered by recent off-train-track betting woes.
Radice cares for patients of all ages, including children and seniors; however, it should be noted that all clients must be able to make it up the stairs to her second-floor office.
While there are no reviews for Solaris Acupuncture yet, clients provide glowing online testimonials:
Nationally board-certified oriental-medicine specialist Nancy R. Radice believes that effective and natural healing can be achieved without scalpels, pills, or robotic nursing assistants. Drawing from ancient practices that date from more than 2,500 years ago, Nancy performs acupuncture and Chinese-medicine treatments to re-establish harmony in the body, stimulating key nerves under the skin with strategically placed needles during acupuncture and precise finger pressure in acupressure massages.
Through Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, or NAET, she also helps identify clients’ allergies, whether they spring from certain medicines, vegetables, grasses, or plants. After hunting down each allergy, she’ll draw from a range of disciplines—including acupuncture, energy balancing, chiropractic medicine, and nutritional studies—to treat allergies in the hopes of reducing or negating their sneeze-inducing effects.
