If you or a loved one is affected by cancer, it’s important to make time for yourself. We offer a range of complementary therapies and can provide diet and exercise advice.
Complementary therapies can play a role in reducing stress as well as helping people feel more positive and in control. They can help you to relax, as well as offering relief from symptoms such as pain, insomnia, nausea and fatigue. Our free services include aromatherapy massage, reflexology, Reiki and craniosacral therapy. Every patient and carer/family member is entitled to at least six sessions within any year.

The complementary therapies helped me get through my medical treatment. I look forward to them so much. It is a great treat and a distraction and I leave feeling more relaxed, less anxious and with a greater sense of wellbeing.
Lifestyle and healthy eating
Everyone can benefit from healthy eating and regular activity. We can help you achieve manageable goals which suit your lifestyle and can put you in touch with the right people to talk to about making the changes.
Our resources include recipe books and cancer-specific nutritional information. Many people with cancer look to make changes to how they eat. There is a lot of inaccurate and unhelpful information available, but we can help find an approach which is right for you.
Regular physical activity can make you feel better in many ways, whether you are used to exercise or not. Physical activity can vary from walking and gardening to fitness classes at the gym. There are many benefits for your physical and emotional wellbeing, and we can help you find what suits you.
