At Acupuncture Associates of Castle Rock, we are proud to offer acupuncture as a treatment option for those patients diagnosed with cancer. Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has proven effective against symptoms of nausea, dry mouth, insomnia, loss of appetite, fatigue, vomiting, immune suppression, pain, and mood swings commonly associated with cancer.
Practiced for thousands of years, this evidence-based treatment method involves placing fine, thin needles into certain points of the body to stimulate nerve cells and restore balance to the body. This stimulation causes the body to release neurotransmitters beneficial to pain relief and feelings of wellness.
Treatment can be performed with manual stimulation, electrical stimulation, or heat stimulation. During your consultation, we will discuss which option is right for you.
It is important to note that we do not claim that acupuncture should be a primary form of treatment for patients diagnosed with cancer. Instead, we believe that acupuncture can be a valuable and effective supplemental treatment option that assists in pain and symptom management.
