Our Complementary Therapies

Various complementary therapies, including massage, hypnotherapy, reflexology, acupuncture, reiki, Indian head massage and aromatherapy are available to our patients and their carers. You can either have your complementary therapy at the hospice Drop-in Clinics, or at home during the week. All the therapies are free of charge and you don't need a GP referral.

      Please call our Nursing Team on: 01665 606515 if you would like to have one of these treatments, so that an appointment can be made for you.                                       

"The icing on the cake at the Hospice was the therapies on offer, from foot massages and yoga to nail painting. From the first visit it was my husband Dave who was prompting me each week to make sure I had the morning off work to go with him- his weekly trips became a highlight and something which he looked forward to immensely. For me they were equally welcoming.”  Connie

    Our complementary therapies are provided by qualified volunteers and benefit patients and carers greatly. If you’re qualified in one of the therapies, we’d love to hear from you. You’ll need to be a member of the relevant professional body for your therapy and also have professional insurance, but we’ll make sure you have a thorough induction.
