Scientific studies reveal evidence that acupuncture, a complex system of diagnosis and treatment that views the person as a whole being, can ease pain and treat a wide range of ailments.

Acupuncture involves placing hair-thin needles in various pressure points (called acupoints) throughout the body. Such stimulation is believed to promote the body’s natural healing capabilities and enhance function. Acupuncture can be used to relieve pain, anxiety, stress, chronic fatigue, insomnia, infertility and more.

Additionally, acupuncture is currently being used for smoking cessation, alcohol and drug addiction, facial rejuvenation, weight loss and post-traumatic stress.

Acupuncture is offered at Franciscan St. Francis Health. Licensed acupuncturist Rebecca Flack is now seeing both men and women at the Women’s Health/Massage Therapy department at Franciscan St. Francis Health – Indianapolis, 5255 E. Stop 11 Road, Suite 430.

What to expect at an acupuncturist

Your first visit will begin with an in-depth assessment of your condition and an initial treatment by your acupuncturist. This visit typically last approximately 90 minutes. Follow-up sessions are normally 60 minutes in length.

During the assessment, the acupuncturist will ask you about your treatment needs, lifestyle and personal behavior. Although treatment will focus on your chief complaint, Chinese medicine considers the whole person in order to develop the most appropriate course of treatment.

During treatment we will help you relax with aromatherapy and soothing music.
