New Program: Free Community Acupuncture in 2020 at Life with Cancer in partnership with Inova Well

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the Society for Integrative Oncology (SIO)* endorse acupuncture as a complementary therapy in the treatment of pain and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. The value of acupuncture has not yet been established for dry mouth, fatigue, neuropathy and hot flashes, but limited studies have shown some possible patient benefit. *NCCN and SIO conduct and evaluate innovative research to ensure evidence-based practice focused on improving the quality of life for cancer patients.

Six sessions are free of charge for patients in treatment or experiencing significant treatment side effects. For all others, there is a $75 fee for the first session and $50 fee for each additional session.
