Although some people prefer that their bodily energy be localized to a few digits to create foot flashlights or electrify thumb wrestling, others prefer to have it flow evenly throughout their limbs. Re-balance your personal current with today's Groupon for one of three wellness services at Whole Health Medical Center in Alexandria. Choose from the following services:
For $30, you get a nutrition class with counseling (a $60 value). During the one-hour session, sip on organic hot tea while learning about nutrition-plan creation from one of Whole Health's licensed nutritionists. Whether your alimentary goals include losing weight, treating a disease, or going cupcaketarian, this class arms its students with the tools to construct a balanced food-ingesting life by delivering knowledge about ideal calorie, macronutrient, and vitamin and mineral intake, as well as guidance on how to determine what will work best for you.
For $59, you get a Whole Health wellness package that consists of a one-hour massage with cupping or ETPS needle-free acupuncture (up to a $135 value). This offer gives you the choice of two soothing treatments, each without drugs or side effects. After a thorough and targeted massage, Whole Health's therapists rejuvenate your relaxed muscles with cupping. This technique uses heated glass cups placed in strategic positions on the client's back. As the cups cool, they draw skin upward, theoretically freeing congested energy to drive with ease on the unclogged freeways of the body. Alternatively, ETPS therapy is a hybrid therapy that combines the best of physical therapy, acupuncture, and many other treatments. Not everyone is a candidate for cupping and ETPS. Your therapist will let you know if this is not advised and can suggest another service.
For $69, you get one acupuncture session (up to a $180 value) in which Whole Health's acupuncturists unblock and rejuvenate the body's chi. Each session includes moxibustion, a traditional Chinese medicine that heats cones of mugwort herb in strategic locations on the body, said to boost circulation and expel cold or damp energy. Depending on the needs of the client, the session lasts from 15 to 30 minutes.
Whole Health Medical Center, one of the largest of its kind in the DC area, dedicates its therapies to its eponymous goal—whole-body treatments that use alternative approaches drawn from traditional Chinese medicine. Since no two people, like snowflakes or excuses for missing Little League games, are alike, each treatment is customized to the specific needs and goals of the patient, and each practitioner advises on continuing treatment and alternate options for every concern.
