A cancer diagnosis, at any stage in life, comes as a huge blow; and brings with it a wide range of emotions to deal with even before the physical treatment begins.Heightened levels of stress, anxiety, pain, nausea and worry can affect both the patient and their family, friends and carers. While modern medicine can help to relieve some of these symptoms, research into the benefits of integrated care are leading many people to look at other avenues to help along their journey.
There is no scientific evidence to support the use of reflexology as a treatment for cancer. However it can help to alleviate aches and pains as well as reduce stress, anxiety, and aid relaxation.
Benefits Reflexology can bring to cancer patients:
Restores feeling of balance and calm
Here at Coast Reflexology I endeavour to provide you with a safe, calming space where you can relax and simply switch off. Having been part of both my Dad and a close friends cancer support, I understand that everyones journey is different. I respect the fact that although you may have cancer you shouldn't be defined by it.
Depending on your needs I offer appointments at my treatment room, in the comfort of your own home or in a hospice/hospital setting.
