Complementary Therapy Service Update - March 2024

At the present time, due to pressures and demand within the service the team are unable to accept new referrals. Once this situation eases an update will be provided and also placed on our website.

We know that this can be a much valued service for many people and would like to thank you for your understanding and patience.

East Lancashire Hospice offers a range of Complementary Therapies to support physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing.  Complementary Therapy helps with symptom management, promotes relaxation, relieves stress and anxiety and improves coping abilities when living with a palliative illness.

The Complementary Therapy Service is designed to support the needs of each individual through a tailor made treatment plan. During your sessions you may receive a combination of treatments based on your needs including massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, reiki and M Technique.  This service is offered to both out-patients, in-patients and their family/carers.

Our therapists are professional and regulated practitioners, with nationally recognised qualifications. You can contact us directly or through your hospital doctor, GP, district nurse, specialist nurse or any other health or social care provider involved in your care.
