Sheryl Crow

Cheryl Crow

In fact, it was my surgical oncologist who recommended I check out the Tao of Wellness, where I supported my treatment with acupuncture as well as herbal teas. The idea is to fortify the immune system. I say why not?”

Cheryl Crow was diagnosed in 2006 with breast cancer. Luckily, it was caught early. But she wanted to make sure that treatment was going to work. She completed 7 weeks of radiation in combination with acupuncture and herbal teas.



Elle Macpherson

Acupuncture. She receives acupuncture treatments regularly and even sees a Chinese Medicine doctor who uses herbs to maintain good health.   


Katy Perry

“I get a lot of the ideas when I’m resting — either when I’m meditating or getting some kind of work done on my back, like physical therapy or acupuncture. That’s where I get my best ideas, maybe because I’m balancing my body.” 

Katy Perry not only uses acupuncture to help with getting the creative juices flowing, but she also complains of knee pain. She stated in an interview that her knees are giving out on her. To combat this, she receives acupuncture treatments 2-3 times a week.
