Acupuncture at Coborn Healing Center

At the Coborn Cancer Center, we have found that acupuncture can ease some of common side effects of cancer treatment. It’s safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care. We know when you’re going through cancer treatment and recovery, life can be challenging. Physical healing is just one aspect of the experience. With acupuncture, we want to help you feel whole, strong and resilient.

Acupuncture uses fine, sterile needles to support your body’s natural ability to rebalance and heal. It can help cancer patients with:

  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Difficult sleep
  • Dry mouth
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty coping
  • Peripheral neuropathy

Do you offer shared acupuncture appointments at Coborn Healing Center?

Shared appointments allow you to experience the proven benefits of acupuncture at a reduced cost. The treatment focus will be on promoting physical, mental and emotional wellness rather than individual medical concerns. For these appointments, we will insert acupuncture needles into various points on the outer ear, scalp, lower legs or hands for approximately 25-30 minutes to create a therapeutic effect. You will sit in a recliner and remain fully clothed. You are welcome to wear an eye mask for relaxation.

Shared acupuncture is available to all cancer patients at CentraCare, regardless of the stage of treatment. The reduced cost of $20 per treatment is available due to generous donations from community members to CentraCare Foundation. To schedule, call 320-229-5100.
