It is a proud moment for The Mulberry Centre!
We are delighted to share that the Macmillan Service Team of the Year Award has been awarded to the Complementary Therapy Team at The Mulberry Centre in 2020.
This team is made up of approximately 26 therapists who volunteer their time in order to offer relaxation therapies to clients of The Mulberry Centre.
Complementary therapies work effectively alongside medical interventions; they do this by reducing stress and anxiety and enabling people to cope better with illness and pain control, they can also help by relieving some of the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its treatment.
This excellent work tailoring support for individuals at their time of need could not be done if it wasn’t for the commitment, hard-work and dedication of the complementary therapy team.
These therapies make a huge difference to the health and well-being of clients as evidenced by the amazing feedback we receive at the end of their therapy sessions.
Here are some quotes from our wonderful clients:
“I think the treatments are exceptional & a great help to get your equilibrium back. How wonderful are the therapist to give their time.”
“Words cannot express how valuable I have found my sessions I always looked forward to them greatly. I felt so relaxed afterwards but more than this, more positive & hopeful”
“I have looked forward to every session & felt so much better after everyone. Thank you so much for being able to help people like this when they are at their lowest. You are all incredible. Thank you”
