Complementary therapies are work alongside conventional medical treatments to promote feelings of relaxation and wellbeing. They can also help with emotional and physical symptoms.

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

  • Massage
  • Reflexology
  • Relaxation

We rely on the generosity of our volunteers to support our Complementary Therapists to provide these treatments, and to meet the increasing demand for these services.

If you would like to volunteer in our Complementary Therapies team please pop in to the John Cheverton Centre for a chat, or register your interest online above. You can also call our Voluntary Services Team by phone (01983) 217322.
