CANCER AND Palliative Care
Reflexology is used widely in cancer care, especially for relaxation, stress relief and wellbeing. A reflexology treatment can be adapted and integrated with conventional medical care to help support the individual needs of the client.
Research has shown that cancer patients who receive reflexology, show significant improvements in their physical and emotional symptoms.
Reflexology may help:
- reduce nausea and vomiting
- increase energy levels
- improve quality of life
- improve the quality of sleep
- help to improve mood and frame of mind
- help alleviate pain and anxiety
Home, hospital or hospice visits available on request. Treatment times can be adapted to suit your needs. Treatments can take place in your bed or wherever you feel most comfortable. Whilst treatments are generally on the feet, hand reflexology can be used as an alternative if preferred.
