Acupuncture for Cancer Support
Whilst conventional cancer services are widely available there is an increasing number of patients drawn to complementary therapies to help in the management of the side effects of treatment.
Modern research into acupuncture has found it to be effective in relieving the nausea and vomiting of chemotherapy treatment, the tiredness associated with chemotherapy and also some of the pain which can occur with cancer. It can also be effective in the treatment of hormone therapy-induced hot sweats. As well as helping to reduce these symptoms, patients report both an improvement in their general well-being and the benefit of having on-going support that the acupuncture treatment provides.
