Circle of Comfort will usually provide four free complementary therapy treatments to people living with cancer, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.
We offer reflexology, massage or aromatherapy treatments and will discuss with each client which particular treatment is most suited to their needs and wishes.
What happens when someone contacts Circle of Comfort?
Anyone can contact Circle of Comfort to ask about receiving our complementary therapy treatments and welcome referrals from healthcare professionals.
Whoever contacts the charity will speak to our charity`s Coordinator who will ascertain the particular health issues of the client, explain the therapies that Circle of Comfort offers, and discuss the therapy most suited to that person’s needs.
Our Coordinator will then contact one of our fully qualified therapists and our therapist will contact the client directly to arrange an appointment for treatment which will usually be delivered in the comfort of the client’s home or in hospital.
At the appointment the therapist will get fuller details of the person’s medical history as this will be important for how the therapy treatments proceed.
We ask clients to complete a simple evaluation form after their final treatments. This feedback is extremely important both in terms of clients’ experience of the benefits they feel from treatments and also their experience with their therapist.
We now include six self-report ratings on pain, relaxation, appetite and so on, and the results from completed forms suggest that our therapies are resulting in considerable perceived improvement in relaxation and energy levels and for some, a notable improvement in their self confidence and pain relief.
