The majority of comprehensive cancer centers incorporate acupuncture into their oncology care. Oncology acupuncture uses research-based point protocols and treatment frequency/duration as the foundation for developing a plan of care. The base protocols are modified based on the individual patient's diagnosis and unique needs, making each treatment highly personalized. Therefore, it is imperative that your practitioner has advanced oncology acupuncture training.
