Gentle Approach to Cancer Association
Profile:

The support centres at the Gentle Approach to Cancer Association, offer a holistic approach to the treatment of cancer. They believe that the whole person must be taken into account if recovery from disease is to be accomplished. The support they offer is complementary to orthodox treatment of cancer and is not an alternative, as pioneered in Britain by the Bristol Cancer Help Centre. Patients can learn about and experience a range of complementary therapies and they also provide advice and counselling for cancer patients and their families.
