Patient therapies

Move, breathe, relax and be more comfortable: making the most of your everyday life.

Because your independence and quality of life are important

It is important to us that you learn to live well with your illness or condition. 

Our therapies team can help you with managing your pain and symptoms,  helping you gain more independence in your daily life. 

Ways we can help


Adjusting to living with an illness or condition that can't be cured, often brings unexpected physical challenges. Our physios are here to help you keep your independence for as long as possible.

We can help with a range of symptoms through group and individual sessions, as well as one to one visits at the Hospice and virtually.

Occupational Therapy

Your occupational therapist can help you enjoy the things you used to and discover something new.

Practical help is often the first requirement and by advising you on how to make small adaptations to your home or providing specialist equipment, your independence and quality of life may improve.

Complementary therapy

Alongside your current medication or treatments, complementary therapies can help control symptoms and put you in a more peaceful frame of mind when dealing with day-to-day life.

Our therapies available are aromatherapy, massage, reflexology, mindfulness or Reiki, following an assessment with the Complementary Therapy team.

How therapies help people like Ria.

Ria was 23 when she was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. With the support of our therapies team, Ria was able to find relaxation and live well at the end of her life. 

Her sister, Kaz, says, "Ria loved the creative therapy sessions and painted a bird box which we still have hanging in our garden. She found it really relaxing and it calmed her mind. They also made up some lovely aromatherapy creams of her favourite scents, we used them to massage her hands which gave her some essential moments of relaxation."
