Acupuncture, derived from ancient Chinese medicine involves the placement of sterile disposable needles at selected points on the body for therapeutic purposes.
This therapy has been found to be helpful for dealing with some of the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its treatments e.g. pain, restrictions in movement, nausea and vomiting, shortness of breath, hot flushes, dry mouth, fatigue, anxiety and stress.
My dry mouth and numbness down my right side has greatly improved from I started with Action Cancer therapies. I am eating better and have put on weight the last few weeks. I have also had a more positive outlook and I feel my attitude has changed with an increase in energy levels. I am also sleeping better and I am a lot more positive. It’s like a dark cloud has been lifted and I can see the sun shining again. Thankyou
It helped to reduce pain symptoms which had been ongoing since chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
I was having acupuncture during the same time as my radiotherapy. This was very useful for dealing with stress and anxiety. I really looked forward to my sessions and [therapist] was lovely throughout. She is very professional while still very caring, friendly and chatty. I felt very cared for during this time. It is a brilliant service, everyone was very friendly and welcoming and i would highly recommend it to anyone!
The acupuncture sessions provided by AC have been invaluable to me. I experienced nerve pain during treatment and was prescribed medication. Due to acupuncture I was able to reduce the tablets.
