We fund the post so all complementary therapies to patients - as well as their relatives or carers, staff members and volunteers - are provided free of charge.
But first of all, let us explain a bit more about complementary therapies, how they work and how they help.
Complementary and conventional
Complementary therapies are a range of therapeutic methods which encourage health and wellbeing when used alongside conventional medicine. The benefits of receiving such therapies are that they can:
- promote relaxation
- reduce stress and anxiety
- ease muscular tension or discomfort
Having a therapy session offers individuals the chance to switch off and take time away from stressful situations and thoughts.
