Acupuncture for Alopecia and Chemo

Our experienced Practioners of Chinese Medicine specialise in treating people with Alopecia and those undergoing chemotherapy treatment as well as a large range of other health conditions.

Our Practitioners currently treat many people with varying degrees of hair loss including Lexie who after experiencing complete hair loss from Alopecia has regrown her hair.

Tammy first met her client Lexie when she was 9 years old and requiring a wig when her Alopecia had caused Lexie complete hair loss. After three years without hair, Lexie’s hair began growing back after using experienced Chinese Medicine.

Specialised Chinese Medicine available from our Alopecia Resource Centre includes Acupuncture and Herbal medicine specifically targeting the strengthening of the immune system.

Lexie's treatment resulted in full hair growth in approximately 18 months. She now has occasional maintenance treatment.

We see many other patients with less severe hair loss also.

Hair loss is often triggered by stress and or trauma, auto-immune disorders, rapid and extreme weight loss, gut health issues and even sleep problems.

Our practitioners compassionately research the functioning of your whole self and then accordingly treat you holistically with the understanding and knowledge that hairloss cannot be treated in isolation to the rest of your system.

Acupuncture for Chemo Patients

Acupuncture for Chemo Patients

Our clients who are undergoing chemo treatment see our Chinese Medicine Practitioners for relief from chemotherapy.

According to Cancer Research UK:

"Acupuncture is used to treat pain and some other symptoms of cancer and the side effects of treatment. "

"One of the main reasons people with cancer have acupuncture is to relieve sickness caused by chemotherapy or other cancer drugs.

"People are often referred because they have pain or other symptoms such as:

  • tiredness and weakness (fatigue)
  • a dry mouth
  • breathlessness
  • hot flushes due to anti cancer treatments

Some people also say that acupuncture helps them feel relaxed and improves their feeling of wellbeing." 

Consult your oncologist to see if acupuncture could be the right treatment for you.
