Circle of Comfort is a registered Scottish charity which offers reflexology, massage or aromatherapy treatments to people in Fife and Perthshire who are living with the side effects of cancer, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease. Clients are given their treatments in the comfort of their own home free of charge, by one of our fully qualified therapists.
In 2005 charity founder Roseann Haig started her journey as a complementary therapist for people with a life shortening diagnosis.
After completing her BSc in Complementary Therapies from Napier University and setting up her own business, she responded to a call-out from the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy for volunteers to deliver complementary treatments to patients.
Roseann began working with terminally ill cancer patients in the hospice at Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline. At that time this was quite a new approach to working with hospice patients for the NHS.
After one of her treatments Roseann asked Pamela how she felt. She replied by saying it gave her “comfort”.
The charity was launched in November 2007 and was named Circle of Comfort in memory of the “COMFORT” that Pamela had told Roseann she felt after her therapy treatments.
Today Circle of Comfort is managed by a voluntary Executive Committee of Trustees of which Roseann is the Chairperson.
We strive to keep our administration cost to a minimum and pride ourselves that a large percentage of money raised through fundraising goes directly towards the care of Clients.
Our motto is, “Giving our Time for You”. We are passionate about the services we provide and take every opportunity to raise awareness of our charity so more people can benefit of our therapy treatments.
We are a registered Scottish charity which offers reflexology, massage or aromatherapy treatments to people in Fife and Perthshire who are living with the side effects of cancer, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease
