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 by:

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