What we provide

Pain Management

Living with cancer often comes with various types of pain, including discomfort in the neck, spine, shoulders, elbows, knees, and hips. At Huatuo TCM Cancer Care Specialty Clinic, our experienced TCM practitioners are skilled in providing effective pain management using TCM modalities such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and TCM therapeutic massage. By addressing the underlying imbalances in the body, we aim to reduce pain, improve mobility, and enhance your overall quality of life.

Mental Health Care

Cancer can take a toll on mental health, and at Huatuo TCM Cancer Care Specialty Clinic, we recognize the importance of addressing emotional well-being. Our TCM approach integrates acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to help manage the emotional challenges that may arise during your cancer journey. Whether you’re dealing with fatigue, fear, anger, stress, anxiety, or depression, our compassionate team is here to provide effective treatment to help you maintain a positive mindset and emotional balance.

Radiotherapy/Chemotherapy Side Effects Management

For patients undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide valuable support in managing the side effects associated with these treatments. Our skilled TCM practitioners are trained to address common side effects such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, constipation, pain, mental fatigue, anxiety and depression, insomnia, dry mouth, mouth sores, weakened immune system, and chemo brain (cancer-related cognitive impairment or cognitive dysfunction). Through the use of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and dietary therapy, we aim to minimize the impact of these side effects, enhance your comfort, and improve your overall well-being.

Complementary Treatment

TCM offers an alternative treatment option for patients who are seeking complementary therapies alongside conventional cancer treatments. While TCM does not replace conventional treatments such as surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy, it can be used as a supportive therapy to enhance treatment outcomes and overall well-being. Our experienced TCM practitioners will work collaboratively with your oncologist to develop a personalized treatment plan that integrates TCM modalities to support your body’s healing process, strengthen your immune system, and improve your overall health.
