SCIENTISTS in Manchester are seeing if acupuncture could help beat the draining symptoms of breast cancer treatment.Previous studies have already suggested the ancient Chinese art, which uses pins inserted at points around the body, may relieve the nausea caused by chemotherapy and even some sorts of pain. And it is estimated that as many as 60 per cent of cancer patients already use some form of complementary therapy alongside more traditional treatments.
The source of this information is from the Manchester evening news. When I read that over half the countrys cancer sufferers are using acupuncture as a way of releaving pain, though there are many people that are not given this oportunity. I hope that when this study shows that acupunture is affective then more peole can feel the benefits of this tremendous therapy.
