A reputable acupuncture doctor was recommended to me by co-workers who either used her services themselves or for their families.
After my first round of carboplatin/taxol I had nausea and severe stomach pain so I had to take multiple medications. Acupuncture helped me to the point that after my second round of chemo I did not use any medications, only sea-bands on my wrists (just in case)!
The doctor's name is Yi Ping Hu, she specializes in cancer patients support, she sees patients in Bethesda, MD three days a week and in and Washington DC two days a week. Also, she accepts my insurance UHC/PPO.
My next chemo is March 15, will post the updated info after that.
Hope this will be helpful for people who live in DC Metro area.
I'm glad you found an acupuncturist. It can be so beneficial!
