Cancer Care - Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that has been practiced for over 3,000 years. TCM views disease as the result of an imbalance or blockage in the body’s natural energy flow, called Qi (pronounced "chi"). 

Such imbalances can manifest in physical, emotional, and stress-related disorders. In our practice we use acupuncture as a way to unblock or influence Qi and help it flow back into balance. 

Acupuncture is performed by placing very thin needles into the skin at certain points (or acupoints) and leaving them there for a short time. This is done to influence the energy flow and trigger physiological effects. For most people, the effect often instills a sense of peace and tranquility.

In the context of cancer care, TCM and acupuncture can support and relieve various health side effects  due to the nature of the disease or due to cancer treatment-related side-effects. The objective of TCM and acupuncture treatments for cancer patients is to improve quality of life  and optimize the outcome of conventional cancer treatments.
