Yelp Review 10/30/13

I love the Osher Center! I have regular visits with my oncologist here and he helps me to understand my health from both the western view and an ayruvedic perspective. It’s been hugely helpful in learning to understand my body’s process of dealing with illness. They also offer many other very very useful tools for healing the whole person from access to psychologists for understanding the emotional under lying issues and energy and body work to balance the more subtle energies. Having cancer is not fun but having someplace like The Osher Center to help you get through it all is about the best thing I could imagine. Thanks to everyone there.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

The goal of TCM cancer care is to mitigate side effects of conventional cancer treatments, guide you through some of the physical and emotional changes you might experience and integrate your care. Your TCM cancer treatments may include acupuncture, direction on the use of traditional Chinese herbs and supplements, as well as lifestyle changes to enhance the quality of your life.
