Complementary therapies is the term given to a collection of approaches which may be used to support you during and after cancer treatment. They may be used for self-help and wellbeing. Such therapies include acupuncture, aromatherapy massage, healing, herbal medicine, homeopathy and reflexology. Complementary therapies are not cures for cancer, but they can play an important role in helping people to come to terms with their cancer and their treatment. Many of the self-help approaches offer relaxation and focusing techniques while other therapies can provide symptomatic relief and may promote feelings of increased wellbeing.
