Complementary therapies

Work alongside conventional medical treatments.  They promote feelings of relaxation, wellbeing and can also help with emotional and physical symptoms.  All our therapies are gentle, safe and are adapted for use in pallative care.

 

Massage

Is gentle manipulation of the body's soft tissue (usually the feet and hands) using specific techniques.
