​​​​Dr. Chu specializes in Integrative Oncology. Her experience includes years of work at the Princess Margaret Hospital (Renowned Oncology Hospital in Canada) under Dr. Ian Tannock. Then studied Integrative Oncology Acupuncture under Dr. Ron Puhky (InspireHealth Integrative Cancer Center) where she learned the use of Classical Five Elements Acupuncture to benefit patients with cancer. 


Classical Five Elements Acupuncture focuses on the root cause of disease. This particular style of Acupuncture is a treatment that aids in correcting the energy imbalances that cancer has on the body. It also can stimulate the immune system to help you better defend yourself against foreign cells.


​She also uses Acupuncture to manage the following side effects from cancer treatments: Dry Mouth, Hot Flashes, Fatigue, Neuropathy, Erectile Dysfunction (from prostate surgery). 


Since Dr. Chu is a board certified MD who is also board certified in Integrative Medicine, she is qualified to integrate your western and holistic health care. She can advise on lifestyle changes and supplements to maximize cancer prevention and keeping you healthy!
