Acupuncture and Cancer: Acupuncture and Moxibustion are potent tools that complement conventional cancer therapy. These include surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.  Furthermore, while undergoing such therapies, acupuncture and moxibustion can improve treatment toleration and sometimes prevent side effects.
