Offered through the Cancer Support Community, San Francisco Bay Area, please join them for an examination of how Chinese medicine may benefit you and your loved ones during treatment for cancer.
Chinese medicine treats the whole person rather than the disease, focusing on cultivating a balanced life. In cancer care, Chinese medicine uses natural means to reduce chemotherapy induced nausea, decrease pain, support immune function and enhance quality of life. Self-care tools will be discussed.
The instructor, Kari Knapstad, MTCM, is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She earned a Masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MTCM) from the Five Branches University in Santa Cruz, California with a certificate in Integrative Sports Medicine.
