Acupuncture has been incorporated in cancer care at major cancer centers in the US including Memorial Sloan Kettering in NY and Queen's Cancer Center in Hawaii. I am certified to treat Acupuncture for Cancer Patients by Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Acupuncture gently treats the effects of chemotherapy, radiation therapy & surgery
* Pain, fatigue
* Nausea, vomiting
* Dry mouth, headache
* Stress, anxiety
* Depression, insomnia
* Digestive issues
* Hot flashes (avoid anti-depressants)
Acupuncture in the three phases of healing:
Phase I: Acupuncture manages side effects during chemo and radiation
Phase II: Acupuncture balances the nervous system reducing pain and other issues that arise post-treatment
Phase III: Regular acupuncture sessions minimize stress and inflammation, boosting the immune system and energy to keep cancer at bay.
When is the best time to get acupuncture?
* Acupuncture the day before, the morning of, and the day after chemo or radiation therapy effectively prevents and manages side effects.
* Once-twice weekly acupuncture leading up to and following cancer therapy manages post-treatment symptoms and boosts overall health.
