Overcoming and healing from Cancer is a challenging journey. Therefore Self-Care is an important part of this healing journey. More and more people are using acupuncture as part of their cancer care because of the results it brings. Most of my clients say that the Chemotherapy and Radiation treatment part of the journey is almost the easier part of the journey. They are busy with their treatment plan and know and prepare for the fact that they will be tired after treatment for a few days. But there is an end in sight, which helps them get through it and stay strong.
It is after the treatment that my clients report being the most difficult part of the journey. They are left depleted , exhausted , unmotivated and with low mood. They expected to feel so much better once treatment finished but instead the opposite is true. This is where Acupuncture helps to turn things around and treat the after effects of the chemotherapy, radiation , and the emotional rollercoaster the patient has just been on.
Acupuncture helps with the physical side effects of the treatment such as , nausea, tiredness, hot flushes, while also treating the emotional and mental side of things such as depression, anxiety, low mood, motivation, clarity of mind. It helps you to restore and rebalance and to get your life back on track. Acupuncture is also beneficial for you to use during your Cancer Treatment and is safe to use along with standard care.
