Complementary Therapies

We believe that wellbeing is a big part of good health. Many people find complementary therapies very beneficial and help to manage their symptoms.

As with all treatments, the benefits vary from person to person so try them and see what they can do for you. As well as treating individual symptoms, complementary therapies help lower stress which may be a trigger for relapses and therefore is an important part of managing MS.

More About Complementary Therapies

Acupuncture – Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese treatment of using very fine needles at key points to “balance” the body. Acupuncture is a safe therapy that many find beneficial and very relaxing. Don’t worry, it is not painful. You will feel a little pinch on the skin when the needle is inserted before a dull ache for a few moments which will stop when the needle is removed. 

Massage – Massage Therapy is an incredibly popular therapy offered at the Centre. A relaxing and soothing experience, it improves circulation and relaxes tense muscles. It is an excellent way to relax and restore a sense of wellbeing and balance. On your first visit you will have a consultation with our massage therapist and a personalised treatment plan will be created to suit your needs. 

Reiki – Reiki is a treatment from Japan that uses life force to bring balance to your body. During this relaxing treatment, you either sit or lie down as our therapist lays her hands on or just above you to channel energy. You stay fully clothed and it is suitable for everyone.
