Can Acupuncture help in the Advanced Stages of Cancer?
Acupuncture, it turns out, works very well in practice. From Chinese medical theory, pain comes from obstruction of the meridians that slows down the circulation. Furthermore, the poor circulation causes the stagnation of liver Qi that results in anxiety and depression in symptoms. Acupuncture has a reputation for not only relieving pain but also calming down nerves by improving circulation.
For the purpose of living without pain, acupuncture plays a key role in pain control and management. The treatment does not have any side effects and can be performed in most health conditions.
