The therapeutic effects of acupuncture are becoming increasingly tested and proven in many different areas of health and disease and this includes supportive cancer care. Many progressive cancer treatment centers are now offering acupuncture to bring comfort and relief to patients really who need it. Acupuncture may also be sought through a private practice, such as ours, Life Long Acupuncture in Arvada, CO.
The common symptoms that have been associated with the fight against cancer and the battle through chemo and radiation include but are not limited to; headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, pain, constipation, anxiety, lowered immunity and depression. These are all conditions that have had great success in treatment with acupuncture.
Acupuncture works by supporting the body to heal. Specific acupuncture points are chosen to address specific concerns for healing in each individual person. Because acupuncture is a natural healing method, it does not pose contra-indications to traditional cancer therapies. Patients who choose to receive acupuncture to support their health and address the side effects of traditional cancer therapies, often experience much needed relief.
