Made for Life

While traditional cancer treatment is chemotherapy, immunotherapy and/or radiotherapy, complementary therapies also play a vital role in curing or helping people live with cancer.

Many of the cancer charities offer complementary therapies to cancer patients, such as Breast Cancer Haven, Maggies and the Dimbleby Cancer Centre.  I've been fortunate to try shiatsu massage (not really my thing) and reflexology (absolutely up my street).  What I've missed though is a good massage.  Due to my bone cancer, I'm no longer able to have regular massages in case they damage my spine.

Thankfully the Made for Life Foundation organises days filled with complementary treatments, organic makeovers, nutritional advice, art therapy, meditation and relaxation techniques along with time for sharing and hugs.  Unfortunately for me, these days are in Cornwall. However, all is not lost.  The Nuffield has worked in partnership with Made for Life Foundation and offers Relax and Restore beauty therapies for those living with cancer.  Made for Life also have a list of spas that have been trained in Cancer Touch Therapy on their website and I'm looking forward to spending a day at The Granary Spa in Kent.
