• Cancer Care

    Jennifer Moody, LAc specializes in Cancer Care including Acupuncture, herbs and nutritional support while you are going through conventional treatment.

    Cancer touches the lives of almost every person in some form or another.

     

    A cancer diagnosis is life-changing, but acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be a powerful addition to your treatment plan.

     

    Chinese medicine is an integral adjunct method for treatment of patients with cancer, and has been in use in China for over 2000 years. Combining Eastern medical therapies with Western cancer treatments creates a more balanced approach to your care.

     

    Acupuncture treatment can help:
     

    • Alleviate chemotherapy-related nausea
    • Relieve side-effects from radiation
    • Increase appetite and improve digestion
    • Treat constipation or diarrhea
    • Treat neuropathy and body pain
    • Treat insomnia
    • Relieve emotional stress
    • Post -surgery pain and weakness 
    • Treat Flushing symptoms resulting from chemotherapy or carcinoid syndrome

     
    Chinese herbal formulas along with Qigong can help improve the immune system, relieve stress and increase overall well-being, and can be an important part of your treatment plan.
     
    Jennifer can assist her patients as they go through their course of treatment, whether it be surgical, radiation or chemotherapy. She welcomes anyone in all stages of their cancer experience, from those dealing with a new diagnosis, to patients who have been survivors for many years.
