Cancer Therapies

FROM AUGUST 15TH 2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ONLY A LIMITED NUMBER OF TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE. PLEASE VISIT OUR COVID-19 PAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

Massage and reflexology (especially lymph drainage reflexology) are now some of the most popular modalities of complementary therapies amongst cancer patients. Reasons most cited are stress reduction (71%), pain management (66%), cancer patient support (57%), and palliative care (41%), amongst others.
 
Evidence of ongoing massage and reflexology (inpatient and subsequently outpatient) treatments indicate that the benefits are cumulative, with outpatient improvements exceeding inpatient symptom scores, even from a high baseline. Studies have consistently demonstrated the potential of massage and reflexology to improve mood and quality of life.
 
Based on evidence of 14 clinical trials, massage in particular can alleviate a wide range of symptoms, including pain, nausea, anxiety, depression, anger, stress and fatigue. Even over the short-term massage contributes to improved psychological wellbeing (in particular reduced anxiety) and in some cases reduced severity of physical symptoms.
 
In addition to the following treatments, we also offer Women’s Cancer Therapy –  a specialist holistic programme for women diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer to meet them where they are at on their cancer journey and give them the support, healing and care they need.
 
Prior to a treatment or programme, Angela will carry out a full assessment to adapt the treatment/s according to the particular type and stage of cancer and your individual needs. This will ensure that you get the maximum benefit from any session.
