Acupuncture can be used to treat acute and chronic problems as well as provide preventative medical treatment. By eliminating congestion and activating circulation of Qi, (pronounced: chee) Acupuncture disrupts patterns of illness. Qi is the vital energy which flows through a system of channels called meridians and regulates the bodily functions. Qi essentially refers to all of the body’s physiological and metabolic processes.
The meridians are the transmission lines among the various parts of the body, making the organism a unified whole. When Qi and Blood stagnate, the processes of elimination and regeneration deteriorate, and this constitutes the underlying basis for many forms of illness. Acupuncture helps encourage homeostasis in the body by regulating and restoring a harmonious, energetic balance.
Acupuncture has been clinically proven to:
- Regulate hormones
- Improve circulation
- Alleviate pain
- Strengthen immunity against disease
- Speed recovery time from injury and surgical procedures
- Promote relaxation and the body’s “rest and digest” functions (parasympathetic activity)
- Ease emotional tension

Acupuncturist techniques that may be incorporated into session:
Trigger Point Acupuncture
A massage technique that alleviates pain through isolated pressure and release of specific trigger points on the body. Treatments provide relaxation and significant relief from chronic pain.
Electroacupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current (microcurrent) is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. This is particularly good for treating pain, reducing swelling and inflammation. Microcurrent can be used to improve athletic performance, reduce recovery time following injuries and heal muscle and nerve impairments.
Discovered in a 4th century ancient Chinese medicinal handbook, one of the earliest recorded reports on cupping therapy illustrates the practice of using a cup to draw up the skin as a treatment for headaches, dizziness and abdominal pain. Early practitioners used animal horns placed on specific meridian points of the body to provide relief and healing. Today, Indu Wellness cupping therapy is administered by certified specialist that involves careful application of cups to the affected area of the body that loosen obstructions, draw toxins and balance the flow of ‘qi’ , – our vital life energy.
Herbal Medicine is the world’s most ancient form of dietary supplementation. Formulas are prescribed after careful assessment and diagnosis to address the underlying condition. Like vitamins or food supplements, they can boost vitality and maintain health. Herbal formulas are used as a preventative to the imbalances leading to illness and disease. Herbal formulas can complement or provide an effective alternative to pharmaceutical drugs.
