After receiving lifesaving neurotoxic chemotherapy, many people develop a painful condition called chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, or CIPN. Research conducted at MSK has demonstrated acupuncture can help reduce pain and other symptoms that commonly occur with CIPN.
In this online workshop, you will hear from Dr. Ting Bao, Director of Integrative Breast Oncology at MSK and lead investigator on these studies. She will discuss the research and rationale behind acupuncture for CIPN. You will also learn ways to relieve CIPN symptoms at home using acupressure and self-massage from two MSK acupuncturists.
This workshop is open to people who have been treated for cancer and their caregivers. It is designed for people who have been diagnosed with CIPN and people receiving chemotherapy that may cause CIPN.
