Yoga&rsquo;s balancing poses rely strongly on the body&rsquo;s core to provide stability, and many poses also activate and target select areas like the abs, thighs, and, if you&rsquo;re trying inverted poses, the arms. Best of all, the moves are low-impact, so you build muscle without putting unnecessary pressure on the joints and ligaments. </span></p>\n<p><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Not sure which class is right for you?

But specific kickboxing moves are also great for targeting and toning problem areas. Roundhouse kicks, for example, work your abdominal muscles, and the punches and kicks do a great job of working your arms and legs. And punching bags and pads can always be added to create resistance and help you muscle up even more.</span></p>\n<p><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Read how </span></em><a href=\"/articles/10-top-martial-arts-styles\"><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">10 different martial-arts styles</span></em></a><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> kick butt.</span></em></p>\n<h2><a href=\"/local/climbing\">Climbing</a></h2>\n<p><a href=\"/local/climbing\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/4J7H1EMkfZ6PhJ9kqbeanqmSbXmp/indoor-climbing-wall_jpg-600x390\" alt=\"indoor climbing wall jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></a></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">If the traditional fitness class route isn&rsquo;t for you, consider heading to a rock climbing gym instead. Physically demanding, yet accessible even for beginners, rock climbing provides an excellent upper and lower body workout, and is a great way to get your pumping if you don&rsquo;t like to run or jump around. Moving from one climb hold to another also requires the climber to think carefully about their route, and flex their problem solving skills, building a strong mind to match your newly chiseled abs and forearms.</span></p>\n<p><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Check out our editor&rsquo;s </span></em><a href=\"/articles/five-tips-for-the-beginner-rock-climber-al\"><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">five tips for beginner rock climbers</span></em></a><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">.</span></em></p>\n<h2><a href=\"/local/zumba\">Zumba</a></h2>\n<p><a href=\"/local/zumba\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/gh4bAvKGsoPukhvpD7AAnyoXfn1/women-jumping-indoor-zumba-fitness-class_jpg-600x390\" alt=\"women jumping indoor zumba fitness class jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></a></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">True, you won&rsquo;t get a professional weight-lifters body in a Zumba class, but the weight-bearing moves in this Latin, hip-hop dance&ndash;inspired class will provide some light muscle toning and engage your core throughout the workout. </span><a href=\"/local/dance-classes\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Dance classes </span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">and dance-inspired workouts are also great for building bone density, which is particularly </span><a href=\"/articles/exercise-for-women-over-50\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">important for older women</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> or people with osteoporosis.</span></p>\n<h2><a href=\"/local/crossfit\">CrossFit</a></h2>\n<p><a href=\"/local/crossfit\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/amjXTFpV9gVFeJvGjE1bTHrFFDK/woman-on-rings-resistance-training-crossfit-fitness_jpg-600x390\" alt=\"woman on rings resistance training crossfit fitness jpg\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></a></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Ok, so CrossFit is not without its share of heavy lifting, but the strength-training exercises here are nothing like boring, bench-pressing variety.

I'm talking itchy watery eyes, 500 sneezes a minute, and a runny faucet of a nose, 24&ndash;7. After seeing how miserable I had been feeling, a friend who swears by </span><a href=\"/local/natural-medicine\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">alternative medicine</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> suggested I look into </span><a href=\"/local/acupuncture\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">acupuncture</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> treatments</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">. I almost immediately turned that idea down; there was no way I was going to voluntarily let someone stick me with a million needles. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">But then I was curious. I had never heard of </span><a href=\"/articles/acupuncture-for-allergies\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">acupuncture</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> treating allergies</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, but since antihistamines weren&rsquo;t really working for me, I decided that maybe it time to face my fears and give the </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">traditional Chinese medicine</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> route a shot. Below, I use my experience to answer some questions you might have about </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">acupuncture treatments</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">.</span></p>\n<h2>How does acupuncture work?</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">As outlined previously in an </span><a href=\"/articles/how-does-acupuncture-work-fq\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">article by the The Guide</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">, the treatment works by stimulating precise contact points that correlate to other areas of the body. This stimulation sends healing energy where it needs to go to clear blockages (such as the ones that cause allergies), and alleviate symptoms. </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">But even though I understood the basics of how acupuncture was supposed to work, I still needed some professional reassurance. My practitioner was awesome at calming my nerves and told me exactly what to expect. Before we began, he even did a little needling test to determine how sensitive my skin was and it turns out I wasn&rsquo;t very sensitive at all (halleluja!). </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Which leads me to the big question...</span></p>\n<h2>Does acupuncture hurt?</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Acupuncture needles</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> are sterilized and hair-thin. When my eyes were closed, I couldn&rsquo;t even really tell exactly where my practitioner was placing them&mdash;that's how virtually pain-free the process was. To to prevent any sudden movements from me, he told me where he was placing each needle before inserting them into my skin: on my forehead, nose, and cheek areas, and also down my arms and the back of my hands. Once he was done, he dimmed the lights, left the room and asked me to relax.</span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">It&rsquo;s important to note that although acupuncture doesn&rsquo;t hurt, it doesn&rsquo;t necessarily mean you won&rsquo;t feel anything. All I felt was a slight pencil-poke feeling with no discomfort at all. The treatment is different for everyone and sensations of pressure, warmth or even mild aching are all totally normal. More importantly, they mean that the therapy is working.</span></p>\n<p><a title=\"Try Acupuncture\" href=\"/local/acupuncture\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/7cDAdrwYs31mkNc7fnwNdECArGx/Acupuncture_Shop_jpg-600x100\" alt=\"Try Acupuncture\" width=\"600\" height=\"100\" /></a></p>\n<h2>Selfies are a bad idea.</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I knew I wasn&rsquo;t supposed to really move around so as to not disrupt the needles, but I couldn&rsquo;t help myself... I was dying to see what I looked like! So I carefully reached for my phone and snapped a quick selfie. Bad idea. I freaked out a little when I saw myself because I looked like something straight out of a horror film. Thankfully though, it looked a lot worse than it actually felt. I was so calm and at ease that I'm pretty sure I fell asleep at some point.</span></p>\n<h2>Does it actually work?</h2>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">As I lay there on my back with my eyes closed, listening to the soothing music, I could literally feel my sinuses clearing up. My nose slowly stopped dripping and I could actually breathe through it for the first time in days. I was amazed at how quickly </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">acupuncture</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> worked to relieve my symptoms! </span></p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">For me, the cherry on top was that the results from one treatment proved to be effective for the entire season. Since then, I make it a point to go once a year right at the beginning of spring so that I can actually stop and smell the roses. Of course results can vary per person, but my only regret is not trying </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">alternative therapies</span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> sooner.</span></p>","created_on":"2016-07-25T19:27:23.528Z","last_modified_on":"6.10.2017","last_modified_by":"","location":null,"author_name":"Anam Ather","author":{"first_name":"Anam","last_name":"Ather","permalink":"anam-ather","username":"aather","real_name":"Anam Ather","category":"294ea30b-dd37-49a1-9805-e9e6c7617902","secondary_categories":"294ea30b-dd37-49a1-9805-e9e6c7617902","blog_name":"Groupon Editors","blog_url":"www.groupon.com/guide","bio_info":"A big fan of hugs, gangster rap, and Nutella, Anam is a former prom princess turned blogger who compiles all of her beauty and fashion musings at <a href=\"http://thestylemenu.com/\">The Style Menu</a>.","locale":"en_US","last_modified_on":1454946410792,"last_modified_by":null,"id":"cba3f221-830d-4063-b5b8-bbde6cb0d7df","author_image":"https://img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/d1s2EZKymwmjvqVqQj4uSS/anam-headshot_jpeg-600x585"},"locale":"en_US","seo_title":"Getting Acupuncture Isn’t as Bad as it Looks","meta_description":"Eager to try acupuncture, but scared of needles?

Now imagine standing in a subzero <a href=\"http://www.groupon.com/browse?query=cryotherapy\">cryotherapy</a> chamber for that same length of time. Living without a DVR doesn't sound so bad, does it?</p>\n<p>But what is cryotherapy, exactly, and why would anyone put their body through that? To find out the answer, we interviewed Jim Karas, the owner of <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/biz/chicago/chicago-cryo-spa\">Chicago CryoSpa</a>, and Groupon beauty blogger Favin, who tried out cryotherapy at his facility. Here's what they had to say about the subzero wellness treatment:</p>\n<h2>What is cryotherapy?</h2>\n<p>Cryotherapy is like \"an ice pack on steroids,\" Jim says. That's why it's so popular with athletes and those who suffer from chronic pain&mdash;the intense cold is said to minimize inflammation from injuries and ease the recovery process. Best of all, you only have to spend a few minutes in the chamber, as opposed to the 6&ndash;10 minutes you might have to spend in a traditional ice bath to get similar results.</p>\n<h3 style=\"text-align: center;\">Cryotherapy is like \"an ice pack on steroids.\"</h3>\n<p class=\"align right\" style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>&ndash; Jim Karas, owner of Chicago CryoSpa</em></p>\n<h2>What does cryotherapy cost?</h2>\n<p>You would think that a treatment used by such high-profile athletes as LeBron James would be pricey, and you wouldn't be wrong. A single session typically costs between <strong>$60 and $100</strong>, and the cost depends on the market. In Chicago and LA, for instance, cryotherapy tends to be closer to $60 (it's $65 per session at Jim's place), whereas in New York, it tends to be closer to $100. However, a <a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/browse/?query=cryotherapy\">Groupon deal for cryotherapy</a> usually<strong> cuts the price in half</strong>, sometimes more.</p>\n<p>Another way to save on cryotherapy is to opt for a package of treatments or to get a monthly membership that offers special pricing for repeat visitors. But why would someone want to come back all the time?</p>\n<p>Favin, who suffers from a herniated disk, wanted to try the treatment to see if it would help ease her back pain. She felt so much better afterward that she committed to five consecutive days of cryotherapy the following week, despite the fact that she was \"scared\" at first and worried about becoming a Popsicle in the frozen chamber.</p>\n<p><a href=\"https://www.groupon.com/browse/?query=cryotherapy%20\"><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/3wNwbCK1xQ5vZUVVLZUCp2ciF68P/merchandising_what-is-cryotherapy_mwmills_jpg-600x66\" width=\"600\" height=\"66\" /></a></p>\n<h2>What happens during a cryo treatment, exactly?</h2>\n<ul>\n<li><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">Step 1:</strong> The client puts on the proper garments. Men wear close-fitting shorts. Women are either naked, like Favin, or wear shorts and a sports bra. Both men and women wear gloves and socks to protect their fingers and toes. They also wear a robe until it's time to get into the chamber and hand it over to the supervising staff member.</li>\n<li><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">Step 2: </strong>Under the staffer's watchful eye, the client steps inside a cylindrical chamber about as tall as their shoulders, leaving their head and neck exposed. After disrobing, their body is bathed in liquid nitrogen or refrigerated cold air, with temperatures dipping to -250 degrees Fahrenheit.</li>\n<li><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">Step 3:</strong> The client remains in the cold for 2&ndash;4 minutes, depending on how experienced they are with the therapy. Favin stayed in for two minutes. Those short durations keep the body's core temperature at a normal level even while skin-surface temperature drops by dozens of degrees.</li>\n</ul>\n<h2>Our cryotherapy video can show you what to expect:</h2>\n<p><iframe src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/Aji1GJKr8p8\" width=\"560\" height=\"315\" frameborder=\"0\"></iframe></p>\n<h2>What does it feel like?</h2>\n<p>Really cold. As the temperature plunged throughout the two-minute session, Favin's technician tried to distract her, telling Favin to watch the flat-screen TV or spy on passersby on the street outside. Favin says it was hard for her to focus on anything but the cold, but as soon as she stepped out of the chamber, she felt \"instant relief.\"</p>\n<p>\"My skin was covered in giant goosebumps, but they faded as soon as I jumped on a stationary bike. The pedaling helped blood to flow back into my limbs, and warmed me up within a minute or so,\" she explains.</p>\n<p>As soon as she got warm, she felt a rush of energy from the adrenaline coursing through her body (Jim says that rush of energy is common). More importantly? Favin noticed that her back didn't hurt quite as much.</p>\n<p>\"At the end of that week, I drove to Cincinnati to visit family. Sitting in a car for that long would typically set my back on fire, but I felt great the entire weekend, even when I was chasing my cousin's baby around.\"</p>\n<h3 style=\"text-align: center;\">\"At the end of that week, I drove to Cincinnati to visit family. Sitting in a car for that long would typically set my back on fire, but I felt great the entire weekend ...\"</h3>\n<p class=\"align right\" style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>&ndash; Groupon beauty blogger Favin, after trying cryotherapy</em></p>\n<h2>So how does cryotherapy work?</h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/2F4SZKRpBgGnsnmYVCZxFdMEqNis/inline-one__6__jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p>Although cold therapy has been used for ages by athletes recovering from injuries and overworked muscles, there hasn't been a ton of research on it. But here's what proponents say cryotherapy does:</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">It reduces</strong><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\"> skin temperature.</strong> The cryo chamber causes a significant drop in surface body temperature, which may cause the brain to think that you're in distress. The brain responds to cold by sending blood to the core and away from the extremities. Once you step out of the chamber, oxygenated blood is redistributed to the extremities.</li>\n<li><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">It constricts blood vessels</strong>. Vasoconstriction limits blood flow to the cold-affected areas (in this case, most of your body), which helps reduce inflammation.</li>\n<li><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">It has </strong><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">a p</strong><strong style=\"background-color: initial;\">sychological effect</strong>. Jim says that many clients report feeling energized and euphoric after a session. The release of endorphins and adrenaline may help elevate your mood, researchers suggest, but there's not a lot of evidence to say so conclusively.</li>\n</ul>\n<h2>What does it treat?</h2>\n<p>Again, not a lot of research has been done on whole-body cryotherapy, and the FDA has not approved it as a medical treatment. But proponents say it helps with <strong>musculoskeletal pain</strong> by <strong>reducing inflammation and p</strong><strong>ossibly</strong><strong> triggering cell </strong><strong>repair</strong>. And localized cryotherapy, applied to the head via hand-operated tool, may <strong>relieve h</strong><strong>eadaches</strong>. A lot of their information comes from anecdotal evidence of pain relief.</p>\n<h2>What if you want to try cryotherapy for weight loss?</h2>\n<p>Some proponents say that when the body sends blood rushing to your core during those two minutes in the chamber, that increases your body heat and, subsequently, your metabolism. However, again, there's really no evidence to support that right now. Still, the treatment does have plenty of celebrity fans.</p>\n<h2>Who can't get cryotherapy?</h2>\n<p><img src=\"//img.grouponcdn.com/seocms/d1cPK6Qa24za3Sp8w9zMehvijp1/inline-two__7__jpg-600x390\" width=\"600\" height=\"390\" /></p>\n<p>According to Jim, people with larger builds may not be able to use certain equipment because skin cannot touch the interior walls. (Think of the famous tongue-to-pole scene in A Christmas Story.) And he says it is not recommended for those with severe high blood pressure and heart problems.</p>\n<h2>Cryotherapy Reviews</h2>\n<p>Here's what some of our Groupon customers have to say about their subzero experiences:</p>\n<p><em><em>\"Epic! CryoSpa was amazing. In and out in less than 10 mins. Since it's a dry cold you do not get that frozen feeling like a polar-plunge jump. Definitely will do this again.
