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.
