Acupuncture as an end in itself

Continuing on the theme of using acupuncture in a general kind of way....There was a great piece in the New York Times not long ago about happiness. New studies of consumption and happiness show, for instance, that people are happier when they spend money on experience instead of material objects. Also, current research suggests that, unlike consumption of material goods, spending on leisure and services typically strengthens social bonds, which in turn helps amplify happiness.

This totally made me think about what we do here at South Austin Community Acupuncture...and what if more people just used acupuncture as an end in itself?
