Complementary therapies are not an alternative to conventional medical treatments; they work alongside them to promote feelings of relaxation and wellbeing. They can also help with emotional and physical symptoms.

They may also help to

  • reduce stress and tension
  • ease aches and pains
  • help lift mood and reduce anxiety and
  • help improve sleep

At Mountbatten, we offer a number of therapies, including:

  • Massage
  • Reflexology
  • Relaxation

All of our complementary therapists have a background in healthcare and are experienced in palliative care. They are registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, and have appropriate professional membership and insurance. All our therapies are adapted for use with people experiencing illness, and are gentle and safe.

Please ask a member of staff involved in your care if you would like to be referred for complementary therapy. A member of the team will then contact you and arrange an appointment.
