Since I joined the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing and Virginia Piper Cancer Institute teams in 2010, I have been privileged to work with a great group of health care professionals to help those with cancer who are going through chemotherapy and radiation.
Acupuncture is very successful in providing relief to those suffering from the side effects of chemotherapy, such as nausea, vomiting, fatigue and pain. Another benefit of acupuncture is it can help balance out emotions and lift spirits. When I offer acupuncture, I also like to provide helpful information about diet and lifestyle modification, and acupressure points for nausea and pain. Here is a great article on how acupuncture can help with cancer.
