Acupressure is often called acupuncture without the needles.

Similar to acupuncture, acupressure has been used in China for thousands of years to promote wellness and treat disease. Western practitioners often say these techniques work because they reduce muscle tension, improve circulation or release endorphins, all of which are natural pain relievers.

During an acupressure session, you will lie on a soft table. Our practitioners will apply gentle pressure to specific points on your body through use of their fingers, palms, elbows or special devices.

A acupressure session typically lasts about one hour. You may need several sessions for the best results. Acupressure is great alternative for children or for people who don’t like needles.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
