We offer free holistic therapy to anyone who has been referred to our hospice. For palliative care patients, holistic therapy is almost always used in partnership with conventional Western medicine.

Holistic therapy can be very helpful in dealing with pain management. For cancer patients, it can help with some of the side effects of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery, helping you to relax and let go of emotion, stress and anxiety.

Our patients often tell us how much more comfortable and positive they feel after a session. Therapies may help you to cope with pain or other distressing symptoms and help you get a good night’s sleep.

Using our holistic therapy service

All of our staff and volunteers are fully qualified, insured and have many years experience offering therapies to support those with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, so you can rest assured you’re in safe and capable hands. Before we begin any course of holistic therapy, we’ll make a detailed assessment of your needs to make sure the treatments are safe and beneficial.

“As a cancer patient I attend the hospice for holistic therapy on a weekly basis and as a result the darker days are enlightened by the love and care I receive from the Sisters, Brothers and Volunteers.”
Winnie – Day hospice patient
