In 2011 I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio and started working as an acupuncturist for another acupuncturist on maternity leave. She specialized in acupuncture in the support of cancer therapy…because she had lost her mother to cancer. To fulfill my role as her temporary replacement, I completed a course created by the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for acupuncturists working with cancer patients. In appreciation of her, and to keep it going, I’m dedicating the first month in a series of promotions to those in cancer therapy or remission – come in this month for acupuncture to support your cancer therapy and receive your first acupuncture session for free.
There are those who would be surprised to hear that acupuncture can be an aide if you are dealing with cancer, and yet Memorial Sloan Kettering and the National Cancer Institute both show it to be effective in the treatment of side-effects, supporting the overall treatment program. Linked below are three articles discussing the research supporting the use of acupuncture in conjunction with cancer treatment. According to the National Cancer Institute, acupuncture supports the immune system, relieves cancer-related pain, and alleviates nausea and vomiting – reducing the need for additional medications for those side-effects. Memorial Sloan Kettering discusses acupuncture with certain types of cancer, such as head & neck, breast, and leukemia. Check out the links to find out more.
