What is complementary therapy?

It’s a form of support that ‘complements’ or works alongside your medical care. Our complementary therapies can help reduce pain, feelings of depression and sickness, breathlessness, tiredness and poor appetite. They can also be used as part of symptom control and may reduce the side effects from medical treatment. If you’re feeling stressed and anxious, complementary therapy can support you, and many people tell us they have a better night's sleep after a treatment.
