Complementary Therapies

When you access our Day service, you are invited to enjoy one of a range of complementary therapies we offer.

Complementary therapies work alongside other treatments, and promote a sense of wellbeing that many patients say can make coping with the anxieties and uncertainty of their illness a little easier to bear. We are often told that they can also help improve sleep and ease aches and pains.

Our volunteer complementary therapists are all volunteers, and are qualified practitioners and work alongside our patient care teams. The treatments most commonly used are aromatherapy, a gentle massage using essential oils, and reflexology, a specialised form of massage which applies gentle pressure to points on your hands and feet.

Treatments are available to patients attending Day Hospice and as out-patient appointments for both patients and carers.
