Acupuncture and Cancer


In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cancer is caused by the blood becoming stagnation within the body. It is not flowing through the meridians providing the internal organs with the nourishment that those organs need to flourish within the body. 

The most common types of Cancer are Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer. Other cancers include Lung Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer. 

An Acupuncture treatment which includes the insertion of needles at specific points within the body. Once the needles are inserted into the body, there is a release of hormones that relax the person and the pain is reduced as well as the person will feel very relaxed. When the body is relaxed the healing process begins. Also, herbs are very helpful for cancer patients.
