Treat Yourself

For those who would like to support Alice House, why not come and access our Complementary Therapy service, providing you with something for YOU and supporting your local hospice at the same time.

The Complementary Therapy service is open to all. Anyone who feels they can benefit can access it and funds raised go towards patient care at Alice House.

Complementary therapy treatments are great for promoting relaxation, reducing stress and tension in the mind and body and uplifting mood. Other benefits of complementary therapy include:

  • An increased sense of wellbeing
  • Boost to the immune system
  • Aiding pain relief
  • Improving sleep patterns and/or quality of sleep
  • Relieving specific symptoms eg. muscle aches, constipation etc
  • Boosting circulation
  • Improving skin condition
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Calming the mind and restoring focus

At Alice House the treatments we offer include massage, aromatherapy, reflexology and some beauty treatments (see full treatment list below). All treatments are tailored to the individual and subject to a thorough consultation.

Treatments take place in our therapy room at Alice House Holistic Wellbeing Centre or from the comfort of your own home.

Complementary Therapy is also available to Alice House patients so our therapists are highly trained and experienced in working with people with complex health needs. Treatments are used to complement conventional medicine and not as an alternative. Our therapists work alongside hospice doctors and nurses to ensure treatments will be safe for the individual and not interfere with any medications.

Appointments are available Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 9am and 5pm.
