In the field of alternative medicine, acupuncture reigns supreme over alternative alternatives such as tightrope sleeping, interpretive clowning, and the swallowing of tiny anvils. Experience one of the top alternatives with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a consultation, exam, and two 30-minute acupuncture sessions at Prather Wellness Center (a $275 value).
The initial appointment with Dr. Robert Prather and his associates begins with a consultation and discussion of your medical history and concerns, after which the doctor will conduct a physical evaluation to determine the most effective form of acupuncture. This might include EMI, or electro-meridian imaging, a technique that pulses a gentle electric current into specific pressure points in order to diagnose the body's energy flow. After discussing possible treatments using spoken words or evocative mimery, clients may opt for traditional needle acupuncture, laser acupuncture, or acupowder (a blend of all five acupuncture elements). Collectively, the various forms of acupuncture are used to treat ailments including chronic pain, headaches, asthma, allergies, and skin conditions, making it a versatile solution to a huge array of bodily botherations as well as the suspected root of pincushions' puzzlingly robust health.
The Prather Practice
Voted the best acupucture facility in Indianapolis by the users of CityVoter and calling upon 20 years' experience, Doctor of Chiropractic Robert Prather boosts bodily health with comprehensive holistic therapies and homeopathic disciplines. He helps to correct spinal imbalances and to treat sports injuries, headaches, and achy dorsal fins through chiropractic adjustments that might pair with massages in one of three dedicated spa rooms.
Also a licensed 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 wellness center's medical professionals also draw upon hair analysis, hormone testing, and radiographs to paint a picture of total body health.
