New Chinese acupressure and reflexology shop opens near 14th and Monroe

If you're looking for some reflexology or acupressure, there's an option in the area now. My friend sent me a flyer she got on the street the other day advertising Serenity Health & Wellness at 3421 14th Street NW, between Monroe and Newton. They're open 10am-10pm Monday through Saturday and 11am-8pm on Sundays.

For those not familiar, acupressure is similar to acupuncture, the form of traditional Chinese medicine where needles are inserted into certain parts of the body to relieve ailments. However, in the case of acupressure, there aren't needles, just pressure form the hands or other items.

Reflexology is similar, but uses pressure on the feet and hands for a supposedly similar effect.

Anyone try either? How did it go?
