Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. By stimulating these points, acupuncture can help to promote healing.
There is a growing body of scientific research that supports the benefits of acupuncture. Studies have shown that acupuncture can be effective for treating a variety of conditions, including:
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common side effect of cancer treatment that can cause numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet. It can also make it difficult to walk, dress, and perform other daily activities.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine treatment that has been shown to be effective in relieving the symptoms of CIPN.
Cancer treatments can cause a variety of other side effects that also need to be addressed. More and more research is showing acupuncture as a viable option for additional pain management for those receiving chemotherapy or surgery and for the common side effects those treatments can bring. These side effects can include neuropathy, dry mouth, constipation, anxiety, and nausea.
