Today's deal makes like a porcupine and protects you from predators with an array of tiny, stress-draining needles. For $35, you get a 90-minute acupuncture treatment and prior assessment (an $80 value) from licensed acupuncturist James Phillips at Turtle Dragon Health Services, located a few minutes north of UT Austin.
Well versed in the architecture of the spirit, Phillips uses hair-thin needles to unstop channels of internal energy and promote its proper flow throughout the body. Acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chronic illnesses that Western medicine has difficulty treating, such as allergies, digestive disorders, headaches, menstrual problems, acne, and depression. Moreover, it's highly individualized: before your session, Phillips will meet with you to discuss what ails you and to plot out the most efficient possible healing treatment. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
