Care During Cancer Treatment

Receiving a cancer diagnosis and going through the prescribed treatments is a deeply stressful experience on every level.  It is a time when Chinese medicine has a lot to offer in term of help and support. Acupuncture treatments are not focused on treating the cancer specifically, rather they are designed to address and clear any side effects that arise during the course of cancer treatments. Nutrition and stress management techniques are integrated into the treatment strategies as well.  The tenets of Chinese Medicine recognize that a holistic approach makes the most sense when managing the effects of the cancer treatments. Patients report feeling calmer and stronger after their acupuncture sessions and find that they are more able to withstand the side effects of their cancer protocols.
