Acupuncture for Prostate Cancer

Acupuncture is one of a range of natural therapies that are used to treat illness and disease, including prostate cancer.  This is part of a growing trend that has seen many natural therapies practised alongside, and complementing, conventional medical treatments.

What is the Prostate Gland?

The prostate gland is part of the male reproductive organs, and is situated between the penis and bladder, surrounding the urethra.  It is responsible for producing the fluid that is excreted as semen together with the sperm – which it is designed to protect and nourish.  Cancer of the prostate gland is one of the most common forms of the disease in men, and together with an enlarged prostate is associated with ageing in men.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an element of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points in the skin.  Treatment is aimed at targeting the points in the body where the energy or Qi is blocked, and are determined by TCM tradition.

Acupuncture for Prostate Cancer

TCM considers deficiencies in the kidney to be the root cause of problems associated with the prostate gland.  Regular acupuncture treatments are utilised to stimulate the energy and improve the circulation in the prostate.  In cases where the cancer has established itself and spread to adjacent organs acupuncture is also an effective form of pain relief.  Other recommendations may involve stress-relief techniques such as regular exercise and massage.

Ensure you advise your doctor if you are considering using acupuncture to complement your treatment.

Accupuncture, Acupunture or Accupunture common misspelling

Note that “Acupuncture” is often misspelt as accupuncture, acupunture or accupunture, that is with either too many c’s or not enough c’s. I would love to be able to clear up this very common spelling mistake, and set the record straight.

Ac·u·punc·ture – pronounced ak-yoo-puhngk-cher; Origin: 1675–85; < Latin acū with a needle (ablative of acus  needle) or acu- (as combining form of acus ) + puncture.
