Support for Cancer Patients

Acupuncture can provide support for cancer patients during and after their conventional treatment. It helps to alleviate many of the symptoms.

Jo is an experienced Traditional Acupuncturist with specialist skills and training in cancer support. Used alongside your cancer treatment, acupuncture can safely and effectively help relieve the side effects you may experience including;
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Lethargy
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Hot Flushes
  • Dry Mouth
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Pain

Acupuncture can be used to help you manage your symptoms, whatever form of cancer you have. It complements your medical treatment and enhances healing whilst promoting a sense of well-being. It should be noted that it is not a curative treatment.

Jo has undertaken training in oncology acupuncture with the world renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NY. She currently treats oncology patients at The Spire Montiefiore Hospital, Hove and at her private practise in Brighton and Hove.

Recommended treatment plan

You can start your acupuncture sessions at anytime, before, during or after your hospital treatment. If you are able to start before your therapy you will get the chance to experience the benefits separately to the effects of your medicine.

If your first treatment is during your therapy this is absolutely fine and will not detract from the benefits. Treatment does tend to be cumulative so, if possible, weekly sessions are recommended. It's not always possible to follow the recommended treatment plan, for many reasons, it is better to whatever you can manage. Home visits can be arranged.

Individual treatment plans will be put together at your first session. Please note that Chemotherapy patients are advised to have acupuncture either the day before or of their treatment.

If you would like to find out more about how acupuncture can support you or to book an appointment please call Jo on 01273 251575. Free 15 minute consultations are available.
