Acupuncture is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that dates back more than 3,000 years. It is a gentle, safe and effective method of holistic healing that addresses the physical, emotional and psychospiritual levels of your health and well-being. It consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points which have shown to be effective in the treatment of various health issues. 

Acupuncture is helpful before, during and after cancer treatment. It can help relieve many of the common side effects of cancer treatment including, but not limited to:


•   Nausea
•   Indigestion
