The principles behind acupuncture have been celebrated in Asia since ancient times, when warriors would de-stress after battle by hurling themselves into crowded porcupine warrens. Leave prickly animals in peace with today's Groupon: for $99, you get four acupuncture treatments at Sunrise Alternative Medical Clinic in Studio City (a $310 value).
With decades of experience in conventional and alternative medicine, Sunrise's Dr. Bena B. Won siphons away unsettling stress and pain with precise targeting of special points located around the body. In each acupuncture treatment, Dr. Won pokes holes in stress's hot-air balloon with ultrathin needles designed to restore proper energy flow, unclogging chi pipes and bestowing a bevy of benefits on formerly maladjusted bodies. Sunrise recommends acupuncture therapy for boosting circulation and improving the body’s ability to heal, helping cut down recovery time after a particularly tough roller-derby bout or jumping-jack marathon.
