What with all this ballyhooing over health care, would you like to test drive some alternative medicinal practices? Take, for example, the prickly art of acupuncture, the popular practice of inserting tiny needles into points on your body to relieve pain or promote therapeutic processes. As luck would have it, Community Acupuncture of Marin is offering free treatment for newbies in Tuesdays. "New patients receive the first treatment at our clinic for free when scheduled on a Tuesday. Returning patients who schedule to bring a new patient in with them will also receive their treatment free. Appointments required, mention the promo please." Visit Healing Arts of Marin for more details.
