Acupuncture, massage, mindfulness, and yoga may help you manage early stage breast cancer symptoms and treatment side effects.

Surgery is the main treatment for early stage breast cancer. Options like chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, or a combination of these treatments are also often added. 

Complementary therapies like acupuncture, massage, and yoga won’t cure breast cancer. But when used alongside standard treatments, they may ease symptoms such as pain, anxiety, and fatigue or treatment-related side effects like fatigue or nausea.
