Acupuncture is part of an ancient medical system called traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture moves Qi (pronounced “chee”). Qi is energy that moves through your body along channels. When you are healthy, Qi moves freely. When you are in pain, sick or emotionally upset, the Qi can become stuck. Acupuncture unlocks this stuck Qi and can support your body’s ability to heal. As a way to support survivorship, participants will receive general information on acupuncture, be able to ask questions, and may also receive a sample of needling from the acupuncturist. The acupuncturists at Allina Health are certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and are licensed by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.

This class is FREE to patients with cancer and their caregivers. Registration is required. Please call 763-236-5607 allinahealth.org/cancer
