Acupuncture can help to reduce side effects from treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation. Side effects from treatments can include fatigue, nausea, pain, and anxiety. Acupuncture can help to reduce these side effects by increasing the flow of energy and blood to areas that are experiencing pain or other side effects. Additionally, acupuncture can help to reduce anxiety by stimulating endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that produce feelings of well-being.
Acupuncture also helps to improve your quality of life during treatment. Acupuncture can help you feel more energized and less fatigued, which can allow you to continue to engage in the activities that are important to you. Acupuncture can also improve your sleep quality, allowing you to get the rest that your body needs during treatment.
