What is Complementary Therapy?

Complementary therapies are derived from therapies used by the Ancient Egyptians, North American Indians and Chinese. Complementary therapies can be used alongside conventional medicine. Complementary therapists adopt a holistic approach by looking at the ‘whole person’ in order to promote physical and psychological health.

Who is Complementary Therapy for?

Complementary Therapy sessions are usually offered in four to six week sessions and are available to both patients and carers.

Our therapists adapt treatments to suit individual needs, taking into account a patient’s medical history. Therapies can help to

  • ease the side effects of medical treatments
  • boost the immune system
  • ease stress
  • calm the nerves

Patients and carers benefit from being given time to rest and relax the mind and body. This in turn leads to in increased sense of wellbeing.

What is available?

There is a range of treatments available. We will discuss your needs with you to decide what therapy would be most beneficial for you.
