Complementary therapies

Complementary therapies are offered (as appropriate) to children, young people and family members, both in the hospice and the family home.

We offer a range of therapies delivered by trained and accredited therapists.

What are the benefits of complementary therapies?

Complementary therapies can help improve both physical and emotional health in children and family members by:

  • Alleviating symptoms such as pain, nausea, anxiety, depression and fatigue
  • Relaxing the mind and body
  • Relieving tension and stress
  • Enhancing general well being

Where can you access complementary therapies?

  • To children and families when staying at or visiting the hospice
  • To family members during a visit to the hospice
  • To children and family members in their homes as part of Acorns Outreach service

Each hospice has a dedicated complementary therapies room with specialist equipment designed to provide a safe and relaxing environment.
