Treatment FOR CANCER patients and survivors

The integration of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine and their clinical effects have been widely evaluated. Studies have shown that using a combination of both traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine has resulted in better outcomes versus using only one of them.  Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical modality, which plays an important role in pain management, functional improvement, overall wellness and prevention.

Acupuncture is currently being utilized in the treatment of cancer patients for pain management, fatigue, hot flashes, reduction of post-operative and chemotherapy-induced side effects and to increase Saliva production in patients suffering from xerostomia (dry mouth) which is commonly experienced by cancer patients following radiation of the head and neck regions. Acupuncture also alleviated joint pain and stiffness, reduced stress and improved overall physical and mental well-being in patients. Acupuncture is generally safe, painless and well tolerated by patients. It is noted that particular conditions require continuous treatments in order to achieve long-term effect.
