A sense of Touch Therapy Treatments

 

At Finding Me – Living Well Despite Cancer we use Complementary Therapies in addition to standard cancer treatment and after treatment.

 

Touch is vital.

 

This approach is called integrative medicine, and many people use complementary therapies to:

 

  • Reduce the side effects of cancer treatment

  • Improve physical and emotional well-being

  • Relax and cope with stress

  • Relieve pain, fatigue, anxiety, and depression

  • Improve their recovery from cancer

Talk with your health care team before adding any therapies to your standard treatment. They can help you safely combine the therapies that are right for you.

 

Types of complementary therapies include:

  • Aromatherapy touch therapy

  • Jennifer Young Sleep Ritual

  • Ziggie Bergman Facial Reflexology

  • Skincare and touch therapy facials and Jennifer Young Facials

  • Reflexology

  • Reiki

  • Gentle Indian Head Massage

  • Manicure*

  • Pedicure*

  • Make up*

*Coming soon

Our therapists have trained with the registered charity Amethyst Trust who have developed a new approach to treating clients living with cancer, through the creation of a specialist training course. The course is one of the first to be accepted by a leading insurance provider, has been approved by the industry standard Habia and endorsed by Penny Brohn UK.

 

Debbie Gribben has also trained at Mount Vernon Hospital, and is on their accredited therapists list. Our therapists have trained with Keith Hunt MBE from the complementary therapy service at the Royal Free Hospital. Several of our therapists have volunteered at the MacMillan Suite within Lister Hospital and The Garden House Hospice, Letchworth.

Debbie is trained in the Jennifer Young ‘Sleep Ritual’.  This healing therapy starts with a foot soak in camomile magnesium salts, whilst having a relaxing mini facial using Jennifer Young Natural and Organic products.  Then enjoy a light touch body massage including the scalp, using Jennifer Young’s indulgent night treatment oil with frankincense, lavender, ylang ylang, and geranium to send you into a meditative calm, and restful sleep. This sleep ritual is perfect for those going through cancer treatments and beyond.

 

All our therapists are oncology trained and will also be trained within Finding Me – Living Well Despite Cancer.

 

It is a wonderful experience to be able to make a small difference to how a person is feeling; touch is vital for people before cancer treatments, during cancer treatments and beyond, for their health and well-being and touch therapy is a proven way to receive these benefits.
