The Cancer Wellness Center
At The Cancer Wellness Center in Austin we help women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer feel better while promoting healing in a way that is natural and virtually non-invasive. Receiving a diagnosis or recurrence can be devastating, both physically and emotionally. Our goal is to help you become stronger in every sense so that you can experience a better quality of life and fight your battle with everything that is within you.
While we provide ovarian cancer treatment that includes massage, meditation therapy, and other components of Eastern medicine, we strongly recommend acupuncture for ovarian cancer for a number of reasons. Acupuncture helps you manage pain, reduces fatigue, and promotes better sleep while supporting a stronger, healthier immune system. It also works to relieve peripheral neuropathy, nausea, loss of appetite, and other gastrointestinal side effects which many who undergo chemotherapy or other ovarian cancer treatment often experience. Many women are understandably depressed and anxious when undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. Acupuncture also addresses depression, anxiety, and relieves stress.
Symptoms of Ovarian Cance
Some of the most common symptoms of ovarian cancer include fatigue, lack of energy, indigestion, abdominal bloating, appetite changes, changes in bowel movements, constipation, urinary frequency/urgency, and changes in menstruation. Lower back or pelvis pressure is also common.
Oncology massage is often a welcome, relaxing retreat for women who are affected by radiation, cancer treatment medications, or who have had surgery and suffer from related pain. Your body and mind may be under an enormous amount of stress and pain when going through ovarian cancer treatment. This specialized type of massage is tailored to the unique needs of each patient, and provides many benefits including improved sleep, reduced stress and anxiety, reduced pain, and the ability to better tolerate the negative side effects of treatment. When you have ovarian cancer it is important to take time for yourself in a way that is calming and meditative.
Our ovarian cancer treatment is part of your “total” approach to wellness and healing, often used in conjunction with traditional Western medicine treatment. Any type of cancer can leave you feeling fatigued, depressed, in pain, and in some instances, hopeless. Acupuncture for ovarian cancer along with massage, meditation, rest, proper nutrition, and other therapies can not only help you overcome this devastating illness, but help you feel better physically, emotionally, and spiritually along the journey.
We invite women in Austin and surrounding areas to learn more about ovarian cancer treatment and how acupuncture and other services we offer can work in unison with whatever type of treatment you are currently receiving.
