Caring for you

Complementary therapy

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

Treatments are available to both patients, carers and those who are bereaved.
