Some turn to the needle to imprint poetry down their torsos. You prefer a little more reason to your rhyme.
Such as complexion perfection, courtesy of Gabrielle Applebaum, acupuncturist at ecofriendly Juju Spa & Organics.
The many-lettered practitioner (she holds a degree from Harvard Divinity School in addition to her Chinese medical accreditations) addresses superficial concerns with holistic remedies. Her facial rejuvenation treatment is essentially a face-lift without chemicals, lasers, or knives.
After light prep work (herbal supplements, intake forms) and a comprehensive Q&A and exam, Applebaum works her teeny needles to stimulate qi and quash fine lines, under-eye bags, and dull skin.
Results are visible after just a couple of rounds, but the blissed-out sensation will hit you right away.
And have you speaking in tongues.
