How Acupuncture Can Be Beneficial for Cancer Patients in Fortitude Valley

Acupuncture is a unique and innovative natural therapy method that can be used to treat a range of different illnesses and conditions. From fatigue to headaches and migraines, acupuncture has shown success in offering relief to patients suffering from all manner of maladies. By inserting needles into the body at specific points, a qualified acupuncturist can manipulate the balance of hormones and energies throughout the body, thereby offering pain relief and improvement of health.

At Acupuncture and Natural Therapies on Ann Street, we practice acupuncture in Fortitude Valley. We treat a variety of patients and explore the many applications and benefits of acupuncture. However, recently, we have begun focusing particularly on acupuncture therapy for cancer patients.

For patients fighting cancer, the benefits of acupuncture can be particularly pronounced. After surgeries, acupuncture can relieve pain or ease local tissue swelling—both of which can mitigate some of the need for prescription medications. In addition to these advantages—and the connected benefit of eliminating some of the side effects of treatment drugs—acupuncture can help to reduce nausea and vomiting, symptoms traditionally associated with chemotherapy. Acupuncture can also contribute to preventing fatigue, depression, sleeping problems and other issues that sometimes plague cancer patients.

Of course, acupuncture won’t cure cancer outright. However, it can drastically improve the quality of life for cancer patients, particularly those who are going through chemotherapy.
