We know that complementary therapies and well-being treatments can help promote relaxation and reduce tension, alleviating feelings of anxiety and helping promote sleep.
It’s a really important way to help people who are facing all the stress that serious illness brings.
We appreciate being able to offer these treatments to our patients in Day Hospice and the In-Patient Unit through a team of volunteer Therapists.
“I was offered a holistic treatment that would relax me, and I chose Reiki. This was indeed very relaxing, and it also helped me lose some fluid which was wonderful as one of my symptoms is fluid retention. “ Judith, Day Hospice Patient
