ARC Cancer Support

ARC Cancer Support has now added acupuncture to its many therapeutic services for people either suffering from cancer, or those supporting people with cancer. Dr Vincent Carroll, MD and Acupuncturist tells us what ARC does, and why. Some of our leading hospitals recommend this service for those enduring such a journey, and our acupuncturists volunteer their time and expertise to help.

It’s an enjoyable short video that certainly piques an interest, but more importantly, how acupuncture is now being recognised as a valuable addition in the toolkit of cancer treatments.
