Breast cancer support
The Netherlands rank fourth in the world when it comes to the highest rate of women diagnosed with breastcancer. In 2017, 17.000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time, which is a rate of one out of seven, making it the most common type of cancer in the Netherlands.
The diagnosis of Breast cancer is often an enormous shock, in which you may find yourself in a rollercoaster of treatments: chemo, radiation, surgery and often years of hormone therapy afterwards. Chinese medicine can promote your body’s own healing abilities while you are receiving cancer treatment. Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for many of the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and hormonal therapy, as for example nausea, fatigue, moodswings, menopausal complaints, peripheral neuropathy, etc
We use Chinese medicine to support your health and boost your immune system so that you can find your inner balance again and regain control over your body.
Martine has personally experienced the impact which breast cancer can have, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 34. Out of necessity she started looking for ways to regain her energy and rebalance her body. So she researched different treatment modalities that traditional Chinese medicine has to offer to (post-) breast cancer patients. Over the past years she has helped many breast cancer patients with acupuncture, herbs and nutritional advice.
