Integrative Cancer Care. Here’s How I’ll Support You in Your Cancer Journey.

Mun-Yee Chik

For those recently diagnosed with cancer or undergoing treatment it can be stressful, scary, and lonely.

Your medical doctors are doing a brilliant job of fighting your cancer. They’re shrinking tumors, removing lesions, directing radiation, and dosing chemotherapy.

But your cancer journey encompasses far more than that.  

You are more than your cancer.

Who’s looking after you?

That’s where integrative cancer care comes in.

Integrative cancer care is a comprehensive approach to cancer care. Integrative care treats more than just your physical cancer. It supports your emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

It supports all of you, not just your disease.

How does MyOnco Thrive’s cancer care help me

MyOnco Thrive's cancer care is patient-centered, evidence-informed care.  I aim to optimise your health, quality of life, and clinical outcomes. I’ll empower you to become an active participant in your care, before, during, and beyond treatment.  

Integrative care is not alternative, but rather complementary to your medical care. I work alongside you and your medical team so that you get the best of both worlds.

I focus on areas of you that your medical team doesn’t. These include your mind-body connection, cancer-fighting diet and nutrition, restorative sleep, supplements and herbs, complementary medicines, sexuality and fertility, financial toxicity, and overall well-being.

Oncology acupuncture (Brisbane)

Did you know that acupuncture may help with some side effects of cancer treatment?  

The NSW Cancer Council advises that acupuncture may help to relieve some cancer pain, muscle, and joint pain, peripheral neuropathy (tingling in hands and feet which can happen during chemotherapy treatment), cancer-related nausea and vomiting, hot flushes, and fatigue. It may also help with anxiety and sleep disturbances.

If you live in Brisbane, then you’re in luck. I provide oncology acupuncture sessions (AcuThrive) from my Bayside studio in Brisbane. If you’re based elsewhere, and you’d like to try oncology acupuncture, I can help you find an integrative practitioner near you.

Workshops & Webinars  

I run regular workshops and webinars for people living with cancer, their loved ones, and carers.

These workshops cover how integrative cancer care can support you through your cancer journey, treatment options, advice, tips for reducing your cancer risk, and much more.  

The workshops and webinars are run entirely online. You can attend live or watch the replay. No need to worry about fitting it between medical appointments, getting dressed to leave the house, or finding transport.  

I want to help you as much as I can, in a way that makes it as easy as possible for you.

To reserve your free place at my upcoming webinar on acupressure, register here.  

Acupressure can be used to treat some cancer symptoms and treatment side effects plus you can do it yourself, whenever and wherever you like.

Many find some relief from anxiety, nausea, pain, and fatigue through using acupressure.  

I’d love to teach you how you could too.

You don’t have to do this alone

Person-centered service throughout cancer and recovery  

Every person is different, and every cancer is different. I provide individualised care and a treatment plan tailored only to you, increasing the possibility of better health outcomes.

I honestly care about every individual I work with and I do everything in my power to provide the highest quality care possible. I do this by:

● Talking to you, understanding your needs, your situation, and your condition. I treat you as a whole. I don’t just treat your cancer.

● Respecting your wishes, values, priorities, and boundaries. I want you to be involved in the decision-making. I want you to feel comfortable, confident, and empowered through your treatment.

● Offering different program options and treatment modalities to make sure you get exactly what you need, in a way that suits you.
