Acupuncture for Cancer


A number of cancer centers in the US., including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NY, and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houtson are integrating acupuncture in to cancer care.  According to Randomized Clinical Trials, acupuncture is effective therapy for addressing the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy such as:


  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Lack of appetite

  • Neuropathies (eg. Numbness, tingling, and burning  sensations)

  • Fatigue

  • Hot flashes

  • Dry mouth

  • Dyspnea (difficulty breathing)

  • Insomnia

  • Cancer-related pain.


A typical treatment for a cancer patient usually takes around 20 to 30 minutes long and using light needle stimulation and with thinner needle gauges for patient comfort.
