Cancer Care

Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be used to support cancer care by reducing the side effects of cancer treatments, improving overall health and wellbeing, and supporting the immune system.

At What’s Good, we understand that cancer is a complex disease that can have a devastating impact on a person’s life. We believe that an integrative approach that combines the best of Western and Chinese medicine can provide the most effective and holistic approach to cancer treatment and care.

Chinese medicine views cancer as a manifestation of imbalances in the body’s internal environment. Our experienced practitioners conduct a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation that includes a detailed health history, physical examination, and observation of various signs and symptoms. We use this information to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses the underlying imbalances and supports the body’s natural healing processes.

Our treatment approach includes acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, dietary changes, and lifestyle modifications to improve overall quality of life and support the patient’s immune system. Our goal is to not only reduce symptoms and side effects, but also to enhance the effectiveness of conventional cancer treatments.
