IMPROVING PATIENT WELFARE
It’s easy to dismiss complementary therapies as “pampering”, but we have seen the difference they can make in our patients’ lives by helping to relieve stress, anxiety and pain, and as such we take them very seriously!
There are many other benefits of receiving complementary therapies like massage and reflexology: they provide a much-needed period of relaxation, can aid in pain relief, and can also help to improve circulation in those with limited movement. Many patients find that they build great relationships with volunteers during these sessions, and enjoy the emotional support that close contact and conversation can offer.
Alongside our complementary Therapists, we have our trained volunteers who are on hand to offer a therapeutic touch of hands and feet to patients.
