Since I deal with many cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, as well as surgery, and my position as Clinical Supervisor for Emperor’s College Acupuncture externs at the Roy and Patricia Disney Cancer Center in Burbank, as well as in my own Pasadena private practice, I am often asked, what can Acupuncture do for cancer patients?
My response is typically we can promote a sense of well being and quality of life, boost the immunity system, and treat naturally the signs and symptoms of those undergoing conventional treatment and their side effects, including:
Back Pain and Sciatica
Ear Pain and Ringing
Eczema and other Skin Problems or rashes
Nausea and Vomiting
Numbness and Neuropathy
PAIN of all types
The advantage is huge – offering patients to empower themselves in their treatment, treating side effects without additional drugs, and overall, giving them a better quality of life.
