“The £7,500 you sent us was used to fund complimentary therapies which almost everyone who comes to our centre wants to have.
The range includes aromatherapy, reflexology, Indian head massage, yoga, and Tai Chi.
Not only are these pleasant but they help people relax and sleep better. The unpleasant side effects some cancer treatments can be modified by these therapies, acupuncture (which is not pleasant but effective) is particular good for reducing nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy. The other issue about providing these therapies is that compliance with treatment is greatly improved; people do not dread their treatment so much or more importantly accept it and see it through”.
