Valentine’s Day Fundraiser: Abby’s House

This month we would like to show some love to a very important local organization, Abby’s House. Abby’s House provides shelter, affordable housing, food, and education for women and children. As a non-profit organization, their work is dependent upon grants and community donations.

On Tuesday, February 14 and Wednesday February 15, DTE will be donating 20% of all of our cash or check* payments for treatments to Abby’s House. We will also have a donation jar out for the entire week, so please feel free to give generously!

*If you have a pre-paid treatment card and would like to donate to Abby’s House, please pay in cash that day, or add a donation to the jar.

Herb of the Month: Bupleurum Shu Gan Teapills

Bupleurum Shu Gan Teapills are great for physical and emotional tension, in both men and women. They can help to relieve stress, relax tight muscles, and stop muscle spasms. They can also be useful for slow digestion and stomach pain.

For the month of February, Bupleurum Shu Gan Teapills are 20% off, just $10.20 with tax.

2 for 1 special: 2 dates

Introduce a New Patient to acupuncture on Friday January 13 or Friday January 20, and get both treatments for just $20 total! This is a great way to help a loved one get a jump start on their resolutions.

To receive the deal, you must bring in a friend who has never been to DTE before. Feel free to bring two different friends on the two days!

5 for $85

We are once again running our 5 for $85 special. For a *very* limited time, we are offering 5 acupuncture treatments for just $85, when you purchase a 5-treatment card in advance. Since this is such a good deal, there is a limit of two cards per person and you must come to the office to buy them.

When you come in, make sure we know that you want to buy a 5-treatment card. You must pay in full, in advance, in cash or check. There is no expiration date to the cards once you have bought them.

You may also buy 5 for $85 cards as gifts, with a limit of 2 per gift recipient. Let us know if you are buying the card as a holiday gift, and we will include one of our full-color gift certificates to give out with the card.

We will only be selling the cards from December 6-17, so make sure you get into the office before the time runs out!

If you miss this window, remember that you can buy 10-treatment cards all year, in the office or online, for $195 (a $5 discount).

November Special: Food Drive!

For the week of November 8-12 we will be running a food drive to benefit the Worcester County Food Bank.

Bring in a non-perishable food item and get a $15 treatment. This special only runs for a week, but you can get multiple discounted treatments that week whenever you bring in food to donate.

Thank you for your support!
