Cancer Care Sessions

Comfort Touch Therapies include gentle unobtrusive, mindfully adapted  massage, aromatherapy and  reflexology which are safe, provide substantial comfort and relaxation at all stages of your journey,  no matter where you are in your chemotherapy or radiation programme. In additional I often include “HEARTS” and the  “M” Technique in my sessions, depending on a persons preference on the day.

You will have an individual consultation and as with all sessions complete Confidentiality is assured at all times. I can offer you  this service at my home or yours, at hospital or hospice which ever is most comfortable for you.

Initially I trained with Christine Clinton on a Programme developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, New York which  has been found to help reduce the levels of anxiety in patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy. To ensure the highest  standard of care for you and to work safely,   I have taken additional extensive training in Aromatherapy and Reflexology both for both Cancer Care and Pallliative Care at the Milford Hospice, St Francis Hospice and  with Essential Oil Resource Consultants, Provence.  I also trained at Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services where I worked  as a Professional Volunteer Complementary Therapist for 20 months and then at St Francis Hospice.

Essential oils aromas of  Neroli, Lavender, Frankincense, Sweet Orange, Rose, Mint Bergamot  to name but a few can be included in sessions  if you wish.   All essential oils and carriers will not contain ingredients, textures or fragrances which can prove irritating to those with already compromised skin or health.
