Like stick-on tattoos or a blanket crocheted with narwhal tusks, acupuncture can be just as effective without needles. Give your health a non-piercing glance with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get two needleless acupuncture treatments, an exam with x-rays, and a relief treatment (a $380 value). Choose from the following practices:
- Alpha Family Chiropractors, located steps from the Armitage Brown Line stop in Chicago
- Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Naperville
- Advanced Pain Relief Specialists in Palatine
Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
