Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is a safe, effective therapy that can be used at any time throughout treatment to minimise side-effects, and after treatment to support recovery. It works with the major systems of the body making it a great choice for many disorders. The needles are extremely fine, causing little to no discomfort.
Auricular Medicine/Medical Acupuncture
Auricular Medicine is helpful for mental wellbeing, improving physical and emotional resilience and in central pain control. Photobiomodulation (PBM) acupuncture regulates the brain to body information pathways and delivers low frequency laser light to body to support healing. This ground-breaking modality emits no heat or radiation, is non-invasive, painless and generally free from side-effects.
Oncology Massage is a nurturing treatment taking into consideration the physical changes that occur in the body during and after cancer treatment. The therapist will tailor your treatment to your requirements, inducing a deep state of relaxation or assisting with muscular pain.
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing, non-invasive holistic natural therapy which uses light pressure and massage techniques to stimulate reflex and meridian points in the feet, hands and ears, believed to correspond to all the systems and organs of the body.
Guided Meditation assists to bring stillness so when we experience the unexpected or unwanted, we may choose to navigate them differently. By allowing yourself to be guided step by step through a session, you can find clarity and presence within yourself and within your day-to-day life.
Counselling provides emotional support to the individual diagnosed or loved one when needed, during treatment or after treatment is finished. If you or a loved one is dealing with a cancer diagnosis or serious illness, speaking openly about your fears and worries in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment can offer a huge amount of relief.
OsteopathyOsteopathy is ideally suited to address the side effects which may develop during breast cancer treatment. These include scarring, cording, seroma, adhesions, and fibrous tissue changes. In other words, the lumps, bumps, ridges, stiffness, and puffiness which can remain after treatment. Gentle osteopathic manual techniques work to unwind and soften these tissues.
