Are you looking for acupuncture to accompany your cancer treatment or do you know anybody who could benefit from this valuable adjunct to the orthodox regime?
Acupuncture can help in many ways starting with the emotional toll of being told you have cancer to help your recovery after your operation, the many side-effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy and afterwards on the road to recovery and even dealing with the sometimes severe side-effects of medication to be taken after the above mentioned procedures.
It does not mean you will not experience side-effects but it has been shown that acupuncture can reduce symptoms, the frequency and severity of them.
Speaking from my own experience, I had a lot of acupuncture treatments from my colleague Nicky during my cancer treatments, which I found extremely beneficial. Quite honestly, I don’t know how I would have coped without it.
This gave us both the opportunity to gain a lot of experience in treating the severe and debilitating side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
We also did a lot of research on the subject and now feel able to offer help to other people going through the same experience.
Acupuncture can be beneficial for nausea and vomiting, pain, chemo brain, loss of appetite, fatigue and weakness, insomnia, neuropathy, hot flushes, digestive problems, mouth sores, stress, anxiety, fearfulness, depression, a boost to the immune system and helping to increase the white blood cell count.
