There are a wide array of cancer treatment options available today, and the popularity of acupuncture for cancer patients is growing among practitioners of Western medicine. Whether they are being treated for breast, ovarian, lung, prostate, bladder, liver, colon, throat, brain or any other kind of cancer, our patients find the holistic services we provide to be a valuable complement to traditional treatments.
Cancer treatment often leaves patients weak, tired, nauseous, and emotionally spent. Acupuncture cancer treatments are beneficial to patients undergoing bladder cancer treatment, liver cancer treatment and other types of cancer as it is effective for supporting the immune system and managing pain, neuropathy, fatigue, depression and anxiety, insomnia, nausea, loss of appetite and other gastrointestinal side effects patients often experience during treatment.
If you have searched for alternative cancer treatment centers it is important to know that “alternative” and “integrative” are not the same. Alternative medicine is used in place of mainstream medical care, while integrative medicine is complementary medicine that supports patients receiving mainstream medical care.
Cancer Care – Complementary Therapies for Healing and Well-being
Many of the top cancer treatment centers including Sloan Kettering and MD Anderson have incorporated integrative medicine into their services for patients. Integrative medicine combines conventional medicine with complementary therapies designed to treat cancer while giving patients additional support for the physical and emotional side effects, helping to heal and nurture the whole person.
Acupuncture is a holistic medicine used in breast cancer treatment, colon cancer treatment, and all other cancers. Oncology massage is another therapy we often use to reduce pain related to cancer treatment along with depression, fatigue, nausea, stress, and other symptoms to improve quality of life.
When undergoing throat cancer treatment or brain cancer treatment patients often find it difficult to cope; performing the simplest tasks can seem overwhelming. The right cancer care will help you manage physical and emotional symptoms, increase self-awareness, and have a more positive outlook for your life now and for the future.
