A cancer diagnosis brings a witch’s brew of aftereffects caused by chemotherapy, radiation and surgery: pain, anxiety, fatigue, nausea, insomnia, diarrhea or constipation, and shortness of breath.
At 5 Point Acupuncture, our cancer patients experience documented relief from their worst symptoms and side effects. Our needle technique sets off physical responses in nerve cells, the pituitary gland, and parts of the brain, releasing hormones, regulating blood pressure, boosting the immune system, and releasing endorphins. In conjunction with more traditional treatment, acupuncture has helped our patients effectively reduce symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, and oftentimes, vanquish the disease.
Treating cancer provides deep and necessary insights into the greatest complexities—and remaining mysteries—of the human body. We do it as much as possible, and have helped dozens of patients extend their lives, improve the quality of their daily routine, and even hit the five-year remission mark.
