Our Complementary Therapies

Our Complementary Therapies Team

We have two qualified complementary therapists at the Hospice. We are also extremely lucky to have several volunteer therapists who each hold the relevant qualification for their area of practice and give their time freely for the benefit of the Hospice patients collectively. This enables the Hospice to offer a varied range of complementary therapies to patients.

How Complementary Therapies Help

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

We primarily help patients to:

  • Relax and ease stress
  • Feel good about themselves
  • Cope with symptoms

Our Treatments

The treatments available are:

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

Treatments are offered daily, subject to availability and qualification of the therapists on duty.

Basic aromatherapy oils are used, if appropriate, and under consultation with the medical staff. All treatments are carried out in the therapy room or in the In-Patient Unit.

Hairdressing, manicures and pedicures are also offered if desired, subject to availability.

Please note: These services are currently suspended due to Covid-19.
