The term “acupuncture” describes a family of procedures involving the stimulation of points on the body using a variety of techniques-such as sound waves, tiny electrical charges, and/or very thin needles.

Acupuncture, a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, originated more than 2,000 years ago.

Acupuncture is being used in the care of cancer patients to help alleviate pain, fatigue, hot flashes and dry mouth after radiation as well as post-operative chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting.
