Complimentary Therapies Update (17th March 2021)
We are pleased to announce that our Complimentary Therapies are once again running at the hospice as of Monday 17th May 2021.
Due to the current guidelines on the spread of Covid-19 our clinics will be running at a limited capacity. Our therapists will be in contact with all of our Vitality Centre patients as soon as possible to discuss individual needs.
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.
