Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture has been practiced for over 2,000 years and is used by millions of people worldwide every year. Acupuncture has greatly helped clients with chronic and acute pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, headaches, fatigue, general wellness and a host of other concerns. This nourishing, soothing and generally painless form of medicine produces immediate & lasting benefits.
Acupuncture and it’s related modalities are well suited to work side by side with physician directed care & diagnosis. Commonly used techniques at Indigo include:
Dr. Tan’s Balance Method
A complex, yet fast and incredibly effective technique wherein pain and disease in all parts of the body is treated through points on the hands, arms and legs.
Cupping and Manual Therapy
While acupuncture tends to be the main modality used in each treatment, 90 minute treatments are not complete without cupping, therapeutic massage or other bodywork for relaxation, detoxification, pain relief, sports recovery and general health. Cupping has become increasingly popular among professional athletes to increase performance and decrease recovery time.
Stand-alone cupping treatments are effective and available.
