Following a breast cancer diagnosis in 2011, I started chemotherapy treatments at a local “state of the art” cancer research facility.  Early into my treatment I recognized that supportive health care is not a part of traditional cancer treatment.  With my body under assault from chemo, I knew I had to do something to balance the harsh effects. I began acupuncture therapy with Elie on a regular basis. After acupuncture treatments I consistently noticed a dramatic decrease in muscle pain, nausea, fatigue, and the neurotoxicity of chemo.  Elie’s clinical expertise as well as her caring and supportive ways were incredibly helpful to me.
