Complementary treatments may positively help a range of problems. This might include breathing difficulties, pain & discomfort, anxiety, loss of confidence and insomnia.

Complementary Therapy Sessions
In our Spring Centre we offer both our patients and carers a series of weekly/fortnightly appointments. These therapeutic hands on touch therapy sessions are on a one to one basis with a specialist therapist, we endeavour to keep you with the same therapist for each appointment.
These therapies are designed to aid relaxation and ease tensions both emotional and physical, they can also help to manage anxiety levels, improve mood, emotional wellbeing, assist with sleep problems, fatigue and energy levels.
We will discuss which therapy might help you most and will talk with you about the benefits of each treatment matching you to a specialist therapist and on a day and time that works for you.
Our therapists are volunteers, specifically trained in their therapy, fully insured and managed by our Complementary Therapy Coordinator. Here what some of our patients and carers have had to say…
"Thank you for all the important tiny details that made the difference for mum; the delicate pillowcases, the delicious food, the massages and reflexology, the time you gave to all of us, listening to our concerns, feelings and problems, the time you gave to mum". Daughter of patient
“Your Colour & Style lady had a lovely warm manner. When you have so much taken away from you and energy wise you are just struggling to get by having something to focus on was so beneficial. The session became a real catalyst to open up the group to talk about their hair loss, each person sharing their experiences in a really supportive fashion. The open conversations that took place were remarkable, considering the attendees didn’t know one another. I feel the workshop could work equally well for both patients on a curative or palliative pathway.” Workshop attendee
