With more than 20 years' experience, Prather Wellness Center boosts bodily health with comprehensive holistic therapies and homeopathic disciplines. Dr. Robert Prather helps to correct spinal imbalances and to treat sports injuries, headaches, and achy dorsal fins through chiropractic adjustments, and the center's licensed massage therapists soothe sinews in one of three dedicated spa rooms.
A certified acupuncturist, Dr. Prather practices both traditional needle treatments and laser acupuncture, as well as microcurrent, meridian, and auricular therapy to stimulate healing through specific sites of the body. The signature Prather blood profile gifts patients with comprehensive information on all major organ systems through an extensive survey of more than 50 tests, and the medical professionals also draw upon hair analysis, hormone testing, and radiographs to paint a picture of total body health. Doctors can use results to inform future treatment recommendations, or to provide nutrition counseling to keep golgi apparatuses smiling.
Spirit Soul and Body Holistic Family Wellness Center's leader—massage therapist and licensed aesthetician Rhonda Holt—draws from more than 25 years of experience to cultivate overall wellness during natural healing services. Aromatherapeutic scents and soft music fill a massage room, where couples can lie side-by-side as reiki and therapeutic massages create muscles that are laid-back enough to don Hawaiian shirts for their parole hearings. To beautify skin, aestheticians can wax off unwanted hair, apply makeup, and coat visages in custom facials that fight acne and target signs of aging. Along with peels and ionic footbaths, detoxifying treatments also include an infrared-sauna session that prompts the release of unhealthy toxins and candy bars stored beneath skin's surface.
Acupuncture of Indiana’s staff is small but mighty. As the center's name implies, the 12-person staff employs Classical Five-Element Acupuncture and facial-rejuvenation acupuncture, with each member Nationally Board Certified, Indiana-licensed, and all clinical staff has a background in western medicine. However, the staff's alternative-medicine treatments also include craniosacral therapy, reiki, and qi gong.
The experienced practitioners at Indy Downtown Community Acupuncture meld traditional Eastern techniques with those of other wellness-oriented schools, administering acupuncture to clients in a soothing communal treatment room. At their first visit, patients chart their history and desired results and then step into the shared area's scape of cozy reclining chairs free of bitey geckos. Friends and family can undergo treatments together, offering moral support and tender glances throughout the group acupuncture session. During the treatment, an acupuncturist attends to each physique by targeting the client's chosen zones with hair-thin, sterile needles, which can stimulate the affected body part to rebalance corporal energies and resurrect moments from a past life as a spiny puffer fish. Acupuncture can imbue strained bodies with a variety of benefits including improved sleeping habits, enhanced joint mobility, and reduced stress.

The adept acupuncturists of East West Acupuncture dispense their needlecraft as a means of allaying a variety of bodily maladies. The session begins with a consultation that determines each guest's specific needs and problem areas that require treatment. A skilled professional then inserts a series of thin, sterilized needles into the skin over the course of an hour, freeing the body's energy flows and helping it better cope with allergies, fatigue, and migraines caused by head-on collisions with bucking rams. The chi doctors also offer a number of other traditional therapies, including massage, acupressure, and herbal remedies, though these treatments are not included in today's Groupon.
