Complementary Therapies

Some people find it helpful to try complementary therapies, to help them feel better while they’re having cancer treatment or whilst in recovery. These non-invasive therapies can help patients cope with the symptoms of disease and its treatment, aid relaxation, and reduce tension and anxiety.

These supportive therapies are used in conjunction with anti-cancer treatment, and are in no way promoted as alternative treatments to conventional medicine.

These treatments may also be beneficial for the family and friends who live with and care for someone with cancer.

For your first visit, please book an ‘Initial Consultation’ session, where the therapist will be able to discuss your medical history and the treatments available.

The ‘Initial Consultation’ session lasts 90 minutes and includes a 60-minute therapy session.
