Complementary Therapy is a term used to describe practices that are not part of a standard medical suite of treatments. Complementary therapies can be used with and alongside standard medical treatments and their aim is to focus on the whole person and not simply the disease.
For some people, complementary therapies can help them cope with the physical side effects of treatment which might include sickness, pain and tiredness as well as the emotional impact that a cancer diagnosis may have. Complementary therapies can also give people a sense that they are taking some control over their illness and doing something proactively towards their own care.
Manx Cancer Help offers a range of free complementary therapies by appointment and all our practitioners are fully qualified however, it is important to check with your GP or care co-ordinator before engaging in any form or complementary therapy but we will discuss this with you prior to any treatment.
