ED to Offer Acupuncture

From the Valley News:

St. Francis Regional Medical Center now offers acupuncture services to emergency room patients as a natural way to heal pain and anxiety and reduce the need for pain medication.

The Shakopee hospital’s emergency department is among the first in the nation offering acupuncture to patients.

The service — provided to patients for free thanks to the Saints Healthcare Funds — is available to all ER patients experiencing anything from a minor migraine to significant trauma. More than 30,000 patients visit St. Francis’ emergency room each year.
