Complementary Therapies

We offer a number of Therapies including Aromatherapy, Massage, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Spiritual Healing, Acupressure and Biolaser, Lympathic Drainage massage, Hypnotherapy, Hypno Massage, Hydrotherm massage, Hopi Ear Candling, Arts Counselling and Meditation and Visualisation.

Complementary Therapies are offered to our patients for well being, relaxation and management of distressing symptoms and we will discuss with the patient the best therapy for them.

There are three staff therapists and 21 volunteers offering therapies to patients for Day Hospice sessions in Farnham, at the Beacon Centre in Guildford, as well as carer clinics and community visits. We also run an Out-Patient clinic twice a week and also offer therapies to patients in their own homes and in nursing homes. Our carers clinic is held weekly and is for carers of patients on the In-Patient unit and see other carers by appointment. In addition, to this we offer workshops in making blended products for home use, such as aromasticks for anxiety/ nausea/breathlessness and using therapies for relaxation. We also offer bereaved carers emotional support with Complementary Therapies.

We produce information leaflets on a range of topics to inform and support. This is our Complementary Therapies leaflet, which you may like to print out. Our full range of leaflets can be found on our resources page.
