David Youran, L.Ac.

Director & Founder

David began his career in his hometown of St. Louis after attending the University of Pennsylvania. Under the patient guidance and expert instruction of Dr. Thomas Duckworth, David completed a strict Japanese-style four year apprenticeship in acupuncture and Oriental medicine. David established his practice in St. Louis in 2004 and the following year he and his wife moved to Indianapolis. He was the first acupuncturist in Indiana to specialize exclusively in natural reproductive healthcare, and Indiana Reproductive Acupuncture remains the only such practice in the state.

In 2008, in conjunction with Midwest Fertility Specialists, David co-authored a study on acupuncture and IVF, which was presented at the annual conference of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). He is board certified through NCCAOM and is licensed through the state of Indiana. He is a member of ASRM, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, the American Pregnancy Association, and the Indiana Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

David brings a deep personal interest to his practice. He was adopted from Bogota, Colombia, after his parents struggled with infertility. In 1984 his sister, Michelle, was the first baby conceived through IVF in Missouri. David lives in Zionsville with his wife and two children.
