Dr. Rapkin, who has appeared on programs such as 60 Minutes, keeps patients on the path to wellness through treatments at Vitality Health & Wellness Center of WI. There, the team boosts health with a variety of services, assisting weight loss with HCG treatments, fortifying immune systems with vitamin B12 injections, flushing out built-up hazards during detox regimens, and breaking bad habits through addiction and pain management treatments. Acupuncture sessions dispel lingering pain and symptoms throughout the body, busting insomnia, depression, and gastrointestinal disorders while simultaneously regulating blood pressure and balancing hormones. Dr. Rapkin also blends the ancient arts with modern technology; noninvasive light beams take the place of needles during laser therapy, stimulating the body’s own innate healing abilities, reducing pain, and increasing circulation.

During 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions, she keeps lines of communication open, adjusting and modifying techniques to locate muscle knots and stay well within clients' pain threshold.
