Breast Cancer and Acupuncture

For a women faced with the trauma and stress of a breast cancer diagnosis, the worse part of her ordeal is often treatment associated side effects.

In a new study, acupuncture has been shown to relieve pain, nausea and anxiety during the postoperative recovery period following breast surgery. It can also help the women better cope with other symptoms she may be experiencing.

Acupuncture is a safe, effective and non-pharmaceutical approach with negligible side effects. These reassuring research results have led many physicians to turn to an acupuncturist to provide comfort for their patients.

Women often prefer to limit the medications they are subjecting their body to in order to maximize self-care during this already difficult time. Acupuncture helps fill that need without introducing additional problems.

Donna Lynne Strong Brott LAc, is a Traditional Chinese Acupuncturist licensed in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. She practices at several locations in the greater Cincinnati area. For more information, call 513-324-0955, email or visit
