Holistic Therapy Options in Austin
For patients in Austin and nearby cities, The Cancer Wellness Center provides acupuncture and other integrative therapies for breast cancer to complement traditional treatment, making the journey a bit easier and less stressful. Our practitioners know how devastating it can be to receive a diagnosis of breast cancer; we are compassionate, caring, and dedicated to helping you feel better physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Acupuncture for Breast Cancer
More and more patients and physicians are turning to acupuncture for all types of cancer, including breast cancer. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that is effective for reducing numerous side effects, improving blood flow, reducing or eliminating pain, inflammation, and supporting the immune system.
Breast cancer patients often undergo surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and/or other medical treatments in their fight against this disease. Some of the negative side effects you may experience include pain, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, loss of appetite, hot flashes, and peripheral neuropathy. Understandably, many patients suffer from depression and/or anxiety. Acupuncture is beneficial for all of these side effects and more, helping to reduce stress, promote better sleep, and releasing the body’s “feel good” hormones, endorphins, which contribute to pain reduction and promote a sense of well-being.
Integrative Care for Breast Cancer Patients
In addition to acupuncture for breast cancer, we provide other services tailored to our patients’ individual needs. These include:
Whether before, during, or after cancer treatment, oncology massage therapy helps patients from diagnosis to recovery and beyond, providing a respite from the discomfort, pain, and emotional issues you endure throughout the journey. Massage is a physical touch that not only helps you heal in ways you cannot imagine, it just feels good.
Meditation instruction and survivorship workshops are other services we provide to support spiritual and emotional strength and healing. Meditation enhances awareness and mindfulness, giving you the clarity of mind and mental strength to cope with the ups and downs you encounter along the way. Ultimately, we work personally with you to create a plan of treatment tailored to your unique needs in order to help you enjoy a greater sense of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
There are countless people in Austin, Round Rock and surrounding cities battling this cancer; we want you to know that integrative care can make a huge difference in not only how you feel, but your outlook on life.
