Natural Therapies to support

Cancer Patients

Offering support, confidentiality and an individual approach to cancer care. Complementary Therapies, during such a challenging time, can help immensely with the emotional, physical and mental effects of a cancer diagnosis.

 

Each treatment offered will be bespoke, after an initial free consultation, together we will choose a therapy or a mixture of therapies that will be most beneficial for you.

My experience in working with people with cancer began in 2014 when I was employed on the Cancer Unit in Poole hospital as a Complementary Therapist.  During my time working in the Cancer Unit, I gave reflexology and aromatherapy to patients at all stages; when they were undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy, after surgery and when they were experiencing side effects to the oncology treatments or medication.  I also provided complementary health treatments to patients in Forest Holme hospice.

I have attended courses and gained qualifications in Aromatherapy and Cancer, Massage and Cancer, Reflexology and Cancer and Homeopathy and Cancer.

How Can Complementary Therapies Help?

Homeopathy and cancer

Homeopathy is a gentle, safe and effective complementary medicine, which makes it ideal to take to help with the side effect of cancer and cancert treatments. 

Homeopathic treatments may be beneficial in reducing the effects of the following: -

  • Nausea and sickness, often a side effect of chemotherapy

  • Peripheral neuropathy

  • Exhaustion and tiredness

  • Depression, anxiety and stress

  • Radiation burns

  • Pain

  • Digestive problems

  • Healing after operations

Aromatherapy and Cancer

Essential oils and carrier oils contain naturally theraputic properties for the mind, body and soul.  A bespoke blend of carefully selected oils will be chosen for you to help your healing journey.  I have had many positive responses to Aromatherapy treatments with cancer patients and I find the essential oils especially help in the following circumstances: -

  • Anxiety, stress, depression, distress and worry

  • Insomnia

  • Radiation burns

  • Pain

  • Mouth ulcers and sore mouth

  • Brain fog

  • Odema and swelling

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
