Why Acupuncture Is a Good Supplement to Cancer Treatment, Manhattan, New York

If you are currently undergoing cancer treatment, acupuncture is an effective complement to the regimen. Whether you are experiencing nausea, fatigue, neck pain, back pain, or other problems, this unique therapy helps you manage the side effects, making it easier to function. Cindy E Levitz, Lic. Acupuncturist, PLLC, has been assisting her New York City area patients with this holistic approach as they deal with the disease and recover from western medical treatments. She explains how individuals benefit from it during this difficult time.

Pain Management & Reduced Side Effects

acupunctureChemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries can all cause side effects, pain, and difficulty returning to optimal health. Acupuncture works to reestablish the energy balance within the system by enhancing the flow in the body. This stream of energy or vital life force, called Qi, runs through pathways called meridians and is essential for the system’s basic functions. When blocked, pain and other problems increase. On the other hand, by establishing better circulation in the system, patients mitigate stress, pain, and other discomforts.

White Blood Cell Count & The Immune System

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are known to reduce the white blood cells, which directly affects your ability to heal. As a cancer patient, it’s vital to maintain your strength as you battle the disease. Acupuncture works to restore optimal functioning levels, improving the immune system and making a recovery easier and faster.

If you or a loved one are currently receiving chemotherapy, radiation, or another form of cancer treatment, the benefits of this eastern medicine can help to manage your overall pain, improve immune system functioning, and assist you in recovery. Conveniently located in the Flatiron, Chelsea neighborhood, Cindy E. Levitz, L.Ac. of Acupuncture and Health will assess your needs in a calming and rejuvenating setting. Call to make your appointment today at (212) 924-8034, or visit her website for more information about her and the customized care options.
