In Support of The Moving Forward Initiative
Complementary Health Care for Cancer Patients
Last year I was asked by Cardiff Metropolitan University to do a presentation for Breast Cancer Care to discuss Complementary Healthcare and its place for people living with the diagnosis of cancer or those coming out the other side.
With the clinics close proximity to Velindre Cancer Centre, I felt it made sense to be a part of The Moving Forward initiative. For the presentation, I decided to discuss the benefits of aromatherapy and their role to assist with relaxation. It was during the presentation that I realised there was much more we could do as a Wellbeing Centre to provide support.
As our practitioners are qualified to degree level, with myself and others within the team achieving a BSc (Hons) in Complementary Healthcare with Practitioners Status, I decided to explore how we could help further. I was made aware through the continuing presentations that the treatment of cancer came with many side effects, not least the devastating effects of the treatments to both skin and nails. Whether that be burns from radiology or dry skin from the chemotherapy.
Within The Cancer Care Programme we now offer bespoke treatments, adapting each treatment accordingly to each and everyone’s individual needs. Treatments can include Aromatherapy Massage, Back Neck & Shoulder Massage, Clinical Reflexology and Head & Scalp Massage.
We are proud to be able to provide a bespoke cancer care treatment programme and support our clients through treatment to recovery. For further information on how we can help, click here. Or call me to discuss your treatment options further.
