Effect of Fatigue Three-Needle acupuncture therapy in a pati
Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is a persistent, subjective sense of tiredness or exhaustion experienced by cancer patients. Acupuncture is a safe and feasible optional method for adjunctive treatment for CRF. However, the therapeutic effect of the Fatigue Three-Needle acupuncture therapy in patients with CRF has not been well-investigated.

A 53-year-old woman had been experiencing fatigue since the radical resection of sigmoid colon cancer 2 years ago, for which she underwent traditional Chinese medicine treatment. After some review, she was diagnosed with CRF. Although she underwent traditional Chinese medicine treatment, she continued experiencing fatigue symptoms.

When she visited the hospital, she was treated with the Fatigue Three-Needle for 3 sessions a week, 30 minutes per session. After 4 weeks of treatment, the patient felt refreshed and relieved from the fatigue.
