Our Complementary Therapies

Our Complementary Therapies Team

We have one qualified complementary therapist at the Hospice, supported by a range of volunteers. We are extremely lucky to have volunteer therapists who each hold the relevant qualification for their area of practice and give their time freely for the benefit of Hospice patients collectively. This enables the Hospice to offer a varied range of complementary therapies to patients and their loved ones.

How Complementary Therapies Help

The therapies are designed to complement conventional medical treatment and are carried out in a warm, comfortable and quiet environment.

Therapies are designed to:

  • Help patients feel good about themselves
  • Relax and ease stress
  • Help patients cope with symptoms

Our Treatments

The treatments available include:

  • Aromatherapy Massage
  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Facials
  • Reflexology
  • Reiki

Basic aromatherapy oils are used, if appropriate, and under consultation with the medical staff. We have a dedicated complimentary therapy room for treatments.
