Cancer Care

Gold Ribbon

No matter where you are at on your cancer journey- acupuncture can help!

What we can help with...

  • Nausea and Vomiting: Research suggests that stimulating certain acupoints can help alleviate nausea and vomiting, common side effects of chemotherapy.

  • Pain Management

    • Endorphin Release: Acupuncture may trigger the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers, helping cancer patients manage pain resulting from surgery or other treatments.

  • Fatigue:

  • Chemo-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN):

  • Stress and Anxiety

    • Relaxation and Stress Reduction: Acupuncture sessions can induce a state of relaxation, potentially helping cancer patients cope with stress and anxiety associated with their diagnosis and treatment.

  • Improved Sleep

    • Regulation of Sleep Patterns: Cancer patients undergoing treatment may experience disrupted sleep. Acupuncture may contribute to better sleep quality by influencing the release of neurotransmitters and promoting relaxation.

  • Reduced Inflammation

    • Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Acupuncture has been associated with anti-inflammatory effects, which could be beneficial in managing inflammation resulting from cancer treatments.

  • Improved Quality of Life

    •  Acupuncture takes a holistic approach to health, addressing not only physical symptoms but also emotional and mental well-being. This comprehensive approach may contribute to an improved overall quality of life for cancer patients.

Our team, at ACNC, has extensive and additional certifications and training in addressing the needs and concerns of cancer patients- you can check out our credentials, HERE.
