Summertime means family vacations, and few places offer as much family fun as your classic amusement park. When it comes to amusement parks, a few big names come to mind, but many of us would rather avoid the high prices and long lines found at the home of a certain mouse. Luckily, there are countless amusement parks all across this great nation! Consider some of these for your family’s vacation destination: CEDAR POINT, SANDUSKY, OHIO Found on every thrill-seeker’s to-do list, Cedar Point has been dubbed the “roller coaster capital of the world.” Cedar Point is home to 17 current and former world record-holding roller coasters, including the Valravn, the world’s tallest, fastest, and longest dive coaster. Even if roller coasters aren’t your thing, guests can enjoy other thrill rides, family rides, attractions, and several kid sections throughout the park. KNOEBELS, ELYSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA Knoebels is the park for families on a budget, offering free parking and admittance — guests just pay for any food or rides they enjoy during their stay. While everyone else is busy scrambling for the “latest and greatest,” Knoebels prides itself on nostalgia, with bumper cars, wooden coasters, and a classic carousel among an array of other attractions.

Energy, called “qi,” flows along specific pathways, called meridians, throughout the body. If the flow of energy gets blocked, like water behind a dam, the disruption can lead to pain, lack of function, or illness.

The most common method used to stimulate acupoints involves inserting fine, sterile needles into the skin.

Acupuncture is a successful way to treat a multitude of conditions, including headaches, frozen shoulder, low back pain, TMJ syndrome, numbness and tingling in limbs, acid reflux, sinus infections, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, stress, hypertension, anxiety, and PTSD. Acupuncture can also be a helpful addition to addiction therapy and smoking cessation. For your acupuncture treatment, you’ll lay comfortably on a treatment table while we insert sterile, thin needles into various acupoints on your body. Most people feel minimal to no discomfort as the needles are gently placed. After 15 to 30 minutes, the needles are removed. Most people feel relaxed during and after treatment. Acupuncture therapy is great for treating common ailments, like headaches, or the symptoms of more serious disorders, like Parkinson’s disease.
