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 $29, you get a 90-minute acupuncture session with consultation (a $120 value) at Tigerlily Acupuncture and Chinese Herb Clinic, located on Dickson Drive.
Tigerlily Acupuncture and Chinese Herb Clinic is devoted to the ancient practice of acupuncture, a technique that draws on the ancient concept of qi, or the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital part of health care in Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, and other countries. Acupuncture works by applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and relieving impediments to good health. At the beginning of each initial 90-minute session, one of Tigerlily's certified acupuncturists evaluates each client's individual health needs, consults with the patient to determine treatment goals, and then punctures away their problems with the appropriate needle placements. Acupuncture's celebrated history and positive, healing message make it a perfect choice for bolstering traditional Western treatments for pain or for a horizon-broadening experience in holistic health.
Western medicine has long remained unable to explain why pincushions never get sick. With the growing popularity of acupuncture, the answer has become self-evident. In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be effective treatment for a range of conditions including headache, nausea, sprains, and allergies. Even if you already feel as fit as a pincushion, the process can de-stress, invigorate, and boost your overall health. Call to schedule an appointment.
