Complementary therapies are treatments or practices, which are used in conjunction with conventional mainstream medicine, to support overall care. Supporting mainstream medical treatments, complementary therapies may improve your quality of life, feelings of well-being, aid relaxation, reduce tension and anxiety and generally cope with the experience of having a brain tumour.
Hillingdon Brain Tumour Group includes these therapies if requested into our post op and recovery packages. This extends to the immediate carers too. All therapies add a sense of calmness and wellbeing that is so important in a recovery plan.
We have first-hand experience of our treatments and have used the companies for over 8 years. We use the therapies in all ways from pre op, post op and even terminal. When others have given up we keep trying and know from experience that it can provide a much fuller life.
