Acupuncture can be a very helpful complementary therapy during all stages of cancer care.

With Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center, Molly has studied pathophysiology, mainstream treatment, and the management of side effects associated with breast, colorectal, lung, and prostate cancer, as well as lymphoma, leukemia, and other cancer diagnoses.

Molly’s studies pay particular attention to the physical and psychological issues that cancer patients face, herb-drug interactions, nutrition and physical activity, the importance of acupuncture in research and clinical trials, the science of acupuncture, and relevant legal and safety issues.
