Good health is more than just the absence of diseases such as post-penguin depression; it also involves the overall harmony of one's physical, psychological, and emotional biospheres. Today's Groupon can heal you through and through with an integrated, holistic discount to Yong Kang Chinese Medicine Clinic. For $39, you'll get a health consultation, diagnosis, and 45-minute acupuncture treatment (a $105 value). You can expect your total visit to last 90 minutes.
Whether you suffer from a chronic cough, a bad back, or a suspicion that your slow metabolism and uncontrollable high-fiving are somehow related, the fully licensed and friendly practitioners at Yong Kang Chinese Medicine will assess your situation, make a diagnosis, and design a treatment plan. Like detectives on a hunt for truant vital energies, they'll ask you in-depth questions about your health history and how you've been feeling before performing a brief physical exam.
After they've gathered enough information to determine where your body's natural healing energy needs a jump-start, they'll begin your 45-minute acupuncture treatment. The technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital part of healthcare in Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, and other countries. It works by applying ultra-thin, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and relieving impediments to good 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 headaches, 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.
Though there are no online reviews of Yong Kang Clinic, past patients offer enthusiastic testimonials on the website:
- I’ve always loved acupuncture, studied it some myself at one point, and treatment from Michael reminds me of my best experiences with traditional Oriental medicine in Japan and China. – A.H.
- I was in agony, misery, anguish, and in an all around bad place. Who knew that acupuncture would work? One session and I could move my neck, two sessions and I can move it even more. – E. Lee
- I wanted to let you know I am much improved since the treatment and medicine you gave me. By chance I stumbled into your clinic, and it was by far the best acupuncture treatment I have ever received. – M.C.
