What we do

cancer wellbeingOur therapies are delivered by qualified complementary therapists who kindly volunteer their time and without them we would not be able to offer this fantastic service which is based on the ground floor of the Linda McCartney Centre at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

  • Indian head massage
  • Mindfulness
  • Reflexology
  • Reiki

Our Cancer Volunteer Coordinator will discuss your requirements with you and provide information on the complementary therapies available. The therapist will carry out a consultation on the first session and a course of treatments will be booked. All treatments are delivered in a welcoming, safe and relaxing environment and may last up to an hour

The complementary therapies can help to minimise the stress, anxiety and side effects from treatment. The therapists can also help you with tips to improve your general health and wellbeing.
