This ancient form of Chinese medicine is available to inpatients at St. Luke’s Wood River with a referral from your physician. Once the referral is made, the acupuncturist on-call will come to St. Luke’s to provide treatment within 24 hours. The acupuncturist will bill you directly for this service.

Healing Touch

Healing touch is an energy-based approach to health and healing. Practitioners use their hands above or on your body, using a gentle touch, with the intent of affecting your body’s energy fields to restore harmony and balance and promote self healing.

Healing touch is offered free of charge to St. Luke’s inpatients and their family members. It’s also available at the St. Luke’s Rehabilitation clinic in Ketchum for $60 per session.

Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy uses postures, breathing, and meditation to treat health issues and promote an optimum state of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. It can decrease pain, improve mobility, and assist you in reaching your wellness goals, both during and after your hospital stay.

If you’re in the hospital, please ask your physician for a referral. After you leave the hospital, we welcome you to attend our community yoga class.


Meditation is a mental discipline by which one attempts to get beyond the reflexive, "thinking" mind into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness. People of different religions or no religion practice meditation. It can help you reduce stress, focus on the present, and increase positive thoughts and emotions.

We welcome you to join us for group meditation in the St. Luke’s Chapel every Tuesday from 12:15-1 p.m.
