Your treatment Plan
Your 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.
If you have completed your active treatment and are now experiencing side effects from hormone therapy or from previous treatment acupuncture can still be beneficial.
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.
