Cancer Care

  • Chemotherapy side-effects
  • Fatigue
  • Dry mouth
  • Breathlessness
  • Cancer-related pain

Acupuncture has been proven to alleviate the after-effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer.

Pain is one of the most common, burdensome, and feared symptoms experienced by cancer patients. Common sources of cancer pain can include cancer itself, such as in bone metastasis, soft-tissue infiltration, or nerve compression. The therapies used to treat cancer, individually or in combinations, create a myriad of symptoms. Chemotherapy can cause nausea, dry mouth, breathlessness, fatigue, and musculoskeletal pain. Radiation brings on fatigue, jaw soreness, dry mouth as well, and nausea along with difficulty swallowing.

For many survivors, pain may become a long-term result of cancer treatment. Neuropathy can manifest as long-lasting pain in some patients, as well as inhibited sense of smell, and persistent joint pain.

Acupuncture helps to relieve the multiple symptoms caused by chemotherapy and radiation and ease the pain of any surgeries. In addition to pain relief, cancer patients have said that acupuncture helps them feel relaxed and improves their feeling of well-being.


What Our Patients Say

“I went to Oleg for back pain and stress/anxiety relief. I was skeptical of Acupuncture first but now i am a true believer. Oleg is very patient, knowledgeable and professional. I have tried many different therapies, excercices, without success. After several sessions I felt much better, my pain went down to a minimum and i felt energetic and healthy again. What i also liked is that Oleg has a background in massage therapy, so I was able to get best of both worlds during our therapy sessions. I have recommended Nature Med Acupuncture to all my family and friends.

Zhanna Kushniarova

“Oleg is amazing. I have had three sessions with him and the pain in my leg has subsided greatly. At my first visit Oleg was very thorough in his explanation of the acupuncture process and what I could expect. After the first session I had immediate improvement with the pain. The treatments have also helped tremendously with my anxiety. I am continuing acupuncture treatments not only for pain but also for the overall benefits. I highly recommend Oleg.
