Acupuncture and the Cancer Patient
Traditional Chinese Medicine in Eugene, Oregon

Acupuncture safely and effectively:

  • decreases the nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy
  • manages cancer-related pain
  • increases immune function and white blood cell count to treat neutropenia
  • relieves fatigue
  • relieves feelings of weakness
  • decreases the severity of hot flashes
  • relieves dry mouth symptoms (xerostomia) induced by radiation therapy
  • increases energy and feelings of wellbeing

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of symptoms and conditions associated with cancer and the side effects of cancer treatments.

In recent years a number of cancer centers in the United States including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston have successfully integrated acupuncture into cancer care.  In 2006, I attended the advanced training program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for the use of acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment method for patients as they undergo treatment for cancer.

Acupuncture addresses all aspects of a patient’s being, by helping to calm anxiety and easing fear, while at the same time, supporting and strengthening the physical body.

Few things in life are as frightening and as disruptive as a diagnosis of cancer. As your practitioner, it is my goal to support you and to provide you with empowering therapy that will help you stay strong from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.

I look forward to being a part of your health and wellness team.

Acupunture for Cancer Support
In a day of less-than-satisfying health care and service, Heidi’s refreshing personality and focused individual attention are a rare and welcome find. I began seeing Heidi in Denver after an extreme health issue nearly took my life. I had been referred to several highly trained physicians with decades of experience who then referred me to the Mayo clinic. While all of this medical testing and expertise were both very necessary, they yielded no results and no diagnosis. As preventive medicine is my best option, I started seeing Heidi at her Castle Rock clinic. I now drive 4 hours over the pass to Grand Junction for treatments because I am not willing to let go of the level of service Heidi provides. She cares for her clients and takes her professional obligations to the fullest extent. Clients who choose Heidi will be better for it.
