Without acupuncture, those seeking pain relief would wind up with the entire cast of The Muppet Show tattooed on their backs. Avoid embarrassing ink with today's Groupon: for $95, you get two acupuncture treatments (a $235 value) at Transformational Acupuncture in Dupont Circle.
Certified and experienced needle wielder Jeremy Riesenfeld strives to improve the physical, mental, and spiritual health of his patients by using holistic techniques. The ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture utilizes small and strategically placed needles to relieve pain in a relatively pain-free way. Sports injuries, gastrointestinal issues, depression, and general joint and muscle pain can all be relieved within four to six visits, helping the stressed and sore reach a state of relaxation, peace, tranquility, and non-hurtiness.
Groupon holders will get an initial 90-minute appointment plus a follow-up appointment that will last one hour. Located in bustling Dupont Circle, Transformational Acupuncture's office is as calming as a feng shui-ed butterfly sanctuary, and the comfortable treatment room puts patients at ease before Riesenfeld spends one-on-one time to properly diagnose and treat their specific ailments.
Fresh out of college, Jeremy Riesenfeld was experiencing poor digestion, chronic fatigue, and deepening depression. After enrolling in a work-study program at the holistic Heartwood Institute, however, he quickly found the tools he needed to turn his life around. Overhauling his diet and spiritual outlook based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, he found peace and health, eventually codifying the most useful practices into an eight-branch system that includes meditation, acupuncture, and feng shui. Now at the head of Transformational Acupuncture, Riesenfeld and his fellow acupuncturists help their patrons properly align their energy through acupuncture, herbal medicine, and advice to stop hanging out in particle colliders.
