“... acupuncture can also add to the patients’ sense of wellbeing and decrease the malaise associated with any chronic disease, especially cancer.”
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 17, 2017
Serasana wellness studio has launched an innovative free program to provide cancer patients with acupuncture treatments to reduce the debilitating side effects that are commonly experienced during chemotherapy and radiation during the treatment for cancer.
“I wanted to do something to improve the quality of life for patients while they are fighting cancer,” said Patti McCormick, Founder and CEO of Serasana and licensed acupuncturist. “Acupuncture can help with pain, fatigue, nausea, anxiety, depression and the many other symptoms that are common when patients are undergoing treatments. It boosts their drive.”
McCormick lost both parents to cancer at a young age so has seen first-hand how depleting the treatments can be. She has been practicing for 23 years and has a team of acupuncturists at Serasana excited about this program. On the company’s decision to provide this service, McCormick said, “My parents’ struggle with cancer is what brought me to the field of acupuncture so long ago. Creating a community of hope and healing by safely providing time-tested therapies is the Serasana mission statement. And to take our passion and give it with love to this community is so rewarding.”
“Acupuncture is utilized in managing the side effects of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and hormonal therapies, reducing pain and inflammation, improving sleep, supporting normal digestive function and reducing stress and improving the quality of life of cancer patients,” said Eugene Mak MD, board certified oncologist. He added, “Acupuncture can also add to the patients’ sense of wellbeing and decrease the malaise associated with any chronic disease, especially cancer.”
Serasana is located in Davenport Village in Northwest Austin and offers the fusion of ancient wellness practices, specializing in rejuvenation through stress and pain management by blending acupuncture, yoga, massage, healing tea and remedies.
