When faced with a diagnosis of cancer, there are many decisions to be made regarding treatment protocols. For the patients of Six Fishes, our treatments are an effective compliment to your cancer therapies. We use acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas and supplements and massage to provide an integrated approach to support you during and after treatment. We use safe, research-based protocols to help improve blood counts, strengthen immunity and alleviate nausea. While not a substitute for cancer treatment, our approach protects against the toxic effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Six Fishes Founder, Cara Frank, has been treating people with cancer for over 30 years and her experience has led her to create two proprietary formulas, Beyond Chemo and Beyond Radiation, to help manage the side effects of cancer treatment.


  • Nausea from chemotherapy
  • Minimize scarring and burns from radiation
  • Mouth sores and mucusitis
  • Dry mouth from radiation
  • Low white blood cells
  • Fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Low platelets
  • Joint pain caused by aromatase inhibitors
  • Elevated liver enzymes
  • Hot flashes from Estrogen antagonists, such as Tamoxifen

Cara Frank is my ‘go to’ for Chinese herbal medicine. She has thirty years experience treating patients with acupuncture and herbs. Cara created the herbal medicine program at Won institute and is a current faculty member. She really knows her stuff! Her company, China Herb is right on the premises so my herbs are fresh and of the highest quality. Her knowledge of herbs is top notch. Booking appointments is easy and can be done online, front desk staff is very friendly, and even though it’s in the city, parking is not that bad! Want a trusted practitioner for Chinese herbs? Go see Cara!
