Cancer Care

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, you might be feeling powerless, but it’s important to remain hopeful. If cancer is detected early, in many cases, treatments can eliminate the cancer, or slow it from spreading. In addition to standard medical therapies, you have options available with Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been used for thousands of years to treat various symptoms and conditions. Acupuncture can help to naturally support your mind and body as you are treated for cancer through standard medical treatment.

Common Treatments for Cancer

Best Acupuncture’s Approach to Cancer Care

During the initial exam, in addition to checking your pulse and tongue, we also discuss your health record, lifestyle and goals. Once we’ve put together a health plan, our acupuncturists work to treat the imbalances in the body’s vital energy, or Qi, by inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points on the body. Acupuncture has few side effects, and is a great way to safely complement conventional cancer treatments. After treatment, most leave feeling more relaxed, centered, and filled with more energy, feeling more supported within their bodies.

Acupuncture Can Help to Reduce
