Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are new forms of treatment for many people. I hope you will find answers here to your questions about acupuncture, herbal medicine, my office and my experience.
Some of the problems commonly treat are listed on the Conditions Treated section of this site. If you have a problem that is not listed, phone my office. I would be happy to discuss whether or not I think I could help you.
There are many studies & clinical trials on the effectiveness of acupuncture for different health issues. Some of these are listed on the Recent Studies page of my website. Links to the National Institute of Health's Center on Alternative and Complementary Medicine, as well as other sources of information can be found on the Resources page.

My office is conveniently located near downtown Walnut Creek and Las Lomas High School in the well known Ridgecrest Medical Building at 1844 San Miguel Drive, Suite 203. After work and school appointments are available for your convenience.
I stock a full pharmacy of Traditional Chinese Herbs so patients do not need to go any where else to get their herbal formulas. Not only is this more convenient for patients, but it also ensures freshness and quality of the formulas made.
I'm available by phone to answer your questions and schedule your appointments. You can reach me at 925 933 4848 or email me at francine @ francineball .com. I promise a prompt personal response.
"Francine has been my acupuncturist for over 19 years. She has successfully treated me for a number of health issues ranging from fertility issues to allergies, colds and the flu. I can honestly say that I don't think my three sons would be here without her help carrying my preganancies to term.
Francine specializes in women's health issues, but is also amazing in curing a wide range of ailments ranging from back pain to flus and colds. My husband and oldest son have also been treated by Francine with great results." L.H. 2009
I have been practicing for many years and seen thousands of patients. Many of my patients have difficult, complex and multiple health problems. Chinese Medicine is frequently the last treatment of choice for a patient, but even so, can still be effective.
If you think you have tried "everything", don't give up. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine could help you!
