Acupuncture treatment is a complementary therapy recognized for its ability to relieve cancer symptoms or the side effects of treatment.
 
Acupuncture treatment consists of implanting small, sterile, single-use needles into specific sites of the skin. The acupuncturist adapts each intervention to the client's condition at the time of the consultation (type of cancer, treatments, etc.).

The benefits

  • Reducing nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, particularly in breast cancer cases;
  • Reducing stress, anxiety, depressive symptoms and fatigue;
  • Improving overall quality of life.

The painting workshop enables a person with cancer to explore a new way to express his or her emotions. Painting is a diversion which, without tiring the body, entirely absorbs the spirit. The goal is to have fun and to set aside other concerns for a time. Creativity is one key that allows access to a greater inner personal space. It is one way to enter into ourselves in a relaxed manner.

IYou do not need artistic talent or experience. You need only let yourself be guided by the volunteer leading the workshop to explore through colour and form.
