Supporting the

Neuroendocrine Cancer Community

Complementary and Alternative Medicines

Mar 25, 2021

This week is National Complementary Therapy Week. It is an event about Complementary Therapies & the work & services offered by complementary therapists, Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council – CNHC.
 
Complementary therapies in cancer are considered as those “which are used alongside conventional cancer treatments” to support those living with cancer – including; 
  • Acupuncture
  • Aromatherapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Massage
  • Music Therapy
  • Reflexology
  • Reiki
  • Shiatsu
  • Tai Chi
  • Yoga

This is not an exhaustive or complete list of the complementary therapies that may help someone diagnosed and living with cancer – but we hope it provides an overview of the more common complementary techniques and treatments available.
