In brief: Couldn't hurt...

While there is no scientific evidence to suggest "energy therapy" can help with appetite stimulation for those receiving chemotherapy, it wouldn't interfere with your treatment.
I am a little wary of people making money off of unproven therapies in such a vulnerable patient population, though. Caveat emptor...

In brief: Yes

Effectiveness depends on the individual, the practitioner, and the type of energy work.
