What You'll Get
Acupuncture is said to unblock the body’s energy pathways, similar to the way a busy sidewalk is easily cleared by poking pedestrians with a javelin. Remove troublesome obstacles with today's Groupon to Virginia University of Oriental Medicine in Fairfax. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get one 60-minute acupuncture session (a $90 value).
- For $39, you get two 60-minute acupuncture sessions (a $180 value).
The licensed acupuncture therapists at Virginia University of Oriental Medicine draw on centuries-old holistic treatments to help remedy maladies from headaches to arthritis. During a 20-minute personalized consultation and Oriental physical examination, pin pushers interrogate the abdomen, tongue, and pulse to identify specific areas of pain, set a customized course of action, and diagnose previously unnoticed bellybutton tattoos. While clients recline, practitioners meticulously place hair-thin, sanitized needles across strategic points of the body, which takes about five minutes. Over the next 20–30 minutes, patients may feel a localized dull ache or a series of warm tingling sensations as the needles reinvigorate and reroute detoured energy centers. The treatment ends as the epidermal styluses are slowly removed, sending reenergized clients into the world to enjoy everyday activities, such as pogoing to the water park.
