Women’s Cancer Therapy
Helping you navigate the cancer journey with improved well-being and recovery
Getting a cancer diagnosis (breast or gynaecological cancer) can fill your head with a million questions. It’s a scary trip into the unknown. Suddenly your life has been thrown upside down and the chaos that ensues can leave you feeling cast adrift in a turbulent sea of uncertainty, stress and anxiety.
Navigating the journey from diagnosis to treatment, its side-effects and beyond, including post-surgery care, can be daunting, painful, and extremely exhausting.
This programme has been specially put together in recognition of the needs of someone like yourself. It combines an adapted version of foot reflexology with reflexology lymph drainage to help you better cope with the challenges of this journey, to bring you to a sense of calm and empowerment. The ultimate aim is to improve the quality of your life and move you forwards to a new normal.
The programme will help:
- reduce pain and swelling
- manage stress, worry and anxiety
- improve sleep
- alleviate stress headaches
- diminish fatigue
- reduce irritability
- create a better self-image
- give you more confidence and hope
- create a positive focus.
A key part of recovery is being able to switch off and to permit and stimulate the body to self-heal and renew.
A full assessment will be made at the beginning of the programme to determine how the treatments need to be modified in line with the type of cancer and which stage you are at to ensure you get the best outcome.
