Chronic/severe medical conditions
Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, cancer treatment…some medical conditions require ongoing conventional medical care, and may never completely disappear. But community acupuncture can help. We find that regular acupuncture can minimize flare-ups, ease exhaustion, and treat co-factors like depression. Acupuncture can also help to alleviate drug side-effects, like nausea from chemotherapy or digestive upset from pain medication.
We recommend: Frequency will depend on your health condition; some folks come in just when they start to experience flare-ups, every month or so; others come in up to three times a week to maintain energy and get deep rest during chemo treatment or with severe health conditions. Often people will come and go as their symptoms come and go.
