First Day of Spring

Today is the first day of Spring!

Spring is the season of the Wood element. In Oriental Medicine, the Wood element corresponds to the Liver & Gallbladder. People with a Wood constitution are Type A overachievers who seek control. Their body shape is long & lean, like a tree. Daily exercise & fresh air are absolutely required by Wood types! They are driven pioneers who take initiative & thrive on action. When Wood-types sense a loss of control or life isn’t going their way, they become even more controlling and easily frustrated. When they become unbalanced, they often suffer from migraines, tension headaches, indigestion, tight achy muscles, alternating constipation/diarrhea, mood swings, and irritability. Common vices include alcohol & coffee.

Luckily, Oriental Medicine can bring an overacting Wood element back into balance with the other 4 elements (Fire-Earth-Metal-Water) and alleviate symptoms.

By the way, your custom AcuGraph report will measure the energy in your meridians to determine your primary 5 element constitutional type! Contact Michelle to schedule an appointment today!

5 Cool Tools to Experience at Indigo Healing Acupuncture


Are you skeptical about whether acupuncture works? Have you ever wanted proof that it helps your body heal itself? Then you’ll love how I use AcuGraph to chart your acupuncture meridians and track your progression to wellness.

You don’t have to believe in acupuncture for it to work, but it never hurts to have scientific proof to share with family and friends!


Want to try acupuncture, but don’t like needles? Then I bet you’ll love needle-less acupuncture with powerful lasers! Lasers haven’t been around for 2,000+ years like the rest of Oriental Medicine, but they’re here now and produce amazing results for pain relief and wellness. Laser acupuncture is safe, painless, and effective! Kids love them too!

​Intention Candles

Aloha Elixir intention candles are made with love in Hawaii. They are lightly scented and infused with lots of crystals and good vibes. Set your intention, light one up, and watch the magic unfold in your life within minutes. You’ll see these in my clinic, exuding positive vibes for healing, harmony, new opportunities for success, and even counteracting mercury retrogrades.

Next time I see you, be sure to ask me how lighting one Aloha Elixir intention candle last summer changed my life within days.

​Aroma AcuPoint Therapy

The right oil on the right point at the right time can truly be a life-changing experience. Did you know that one fingertip of a specific oil on a specific point on your ear can clear worries from your mind within seconds and leave you feeling carefree all day? Once you learn about it, you can even do it at home!

Fire Cupping

Professional athletes love fire cupping for its ability to maximize muscle recovery and optimize their performance. Celebrities, billionaires, and your favorite Grandma love it too, because it’s awesome! The telltale circles may leave you looking like you lost a fight with an octopus for a few days, but it relieves muscle tension, improves circulation in your body’s tissues and muscles, and feels just as good as (or even better than) a massage.

Which one of these tools do you look forward to experiencing at your next appointment?
