How Can Acupuncture Help Treat Cancer?
Clinical trials involving acupuncture and its effects on cancer patients have been performed at the largest and most prestigious cancer centers including M.D. Anderson and Sloan Kettering in the U.S., as well as other prominent centers around the globe.
According to the National Cancer Institute: “Acupuncture may cause physical responses to nerve cells, the pituitary gland, and parts of the brain. These responses can cause the body to release proteins, hormones, and brain chemicals that control a number of body functions. It is proposed that, in this way, acupuncture affects blood pressure and body temperature, boosts immune system activity, and causes the body’s natural painkillers, such as endorphins, to be released.”
Specifically, acupuncture has been known to benefit patients and individuals in recovery with:
Digestive side effects (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, loss of appetite)
For patients looking for a safe, effective, and natural treatment of cancer and Western medicine’s side-effects, acupuncture can be an invaluable addition to your health regimen. For example, patients who are currently undergoing chemotherapy often find acupuncture to be helpful in alleviating the side effects of the treatment. If you are considering incorporating acupuncture and massage into your treatment regimen, make sure to select a clinic that has years of experience helping people just like you and choose a team who is committed to giving you the best experience possible.

We understand what you are going through, and all of our services are tailored to ease your pain and help you along your journey of recovery.

This specialized form of massage is a gentle, non-invasive technique that helps pull lymphatic fluid through the channels, enhancing the release of toxins associated with lymphedema.

“When Texas Oncology mentioned acupuncture, I was very open to it in spite of not knowing much about it. I was just desperate for any kind of emotional and/or physical help I could get. I was surprised when I first met with you that you spent so much time talking with me about my condition, my concerns, and how you thought you could help. I appreciated that as I got further into treatment and my symptoms changed and grew worse you were able to modify treatment to meet my newest needs. I am a true believer that acupuncture can make a huge difference for chemo patients.”–JB
