I have used acupuncture this past year to help manage pain and hot flashes. I did not see any effect in helping with the pain/neuropathy in my legs but i did have tremendous relief with my hot flashes. I highly recommend it. Our cancer center offers it at a reduced rate and does the acupuncture as a small group. The provider works on hands and feet. They do it in a small group so that it can be offered at a reduced cost. We were given headphones to listen to calming music and you would have never known there were three other people in the room.
I am hoping to try another round in the next few weeks for overall stress reduction and to get my energy moving in a positive way. I will let you all know how it goes. I will also see if I can find any literature to support it .
