My Cancer My Choices provides complementary therapies, from specialist therapists, to people living with cancer in Berkshire and beyond.
Complementary therapies aim to help people feel better during their cancer journey. In addition to encouraging relaxation, evidence shows that complementary therapies may also reduce the side effects of cancer treatment.
Our therapists, who are experts in their field, offer one to one acupuncture, massage and reflexology appointments. We also offer group courses in Mindfulness, Yoga and Tai Chi. Since the pandemic we have adapted our service to offer treatments and courses both virtually and face to face in NHS and private clinics.
We believe everyone with cancer should have access, from diagnosis, to complementary therapies that enhance their wellbeing and keep them in control of their journey
However, it’s not always possible for people with cancer to access complementary therapies. Juggling appointments can be problematic. They may not feel up to it and not all venues or therapists are able to offer treatments to people with cancer.
Our team is vetted to volunteer in the NHS, has satisfied government DBS checks, is approved by Occupational Health and has undergone NHS Cancer Patient pathway training. They are all volunteers, giving their time and expertise for free.
This amazing team of therapists supported by a team of vlolunteer Meeter Greeters enables us to offer 2 free 1-hour sessions to anyone in Berkshire:
• Just diagnosed with cancer
• Undergoing active treatment
• Within 6 months of finishing treatment
Our therapists are trained to know which treatments are safe and appropriate to work alongside conventional treatment. People can book up to 4 additional sessions for a donation they can afford.
