Cancer Treatments

Kay has spent over 20 years working with Cancer patients.  Kay has experience providing treatments for side effects of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy.  Medication can cause a lot of side effects.  Common complaints such as nausea and vomiting can be greatly reduced. Acupuncture can provide a state of relaxation and aid sleep, benefiting patients going through these very difficult treatments.  Kay will always try to offer home visits if it is possible, but patients are welcome to come to the clinic.  Kay has received patients during various stages of treatments. Some outcomes seem hopeless yet patients can be helped, please call Kay for a chat.  Having treatment to reduce side effects, cannot only give some comfort to patients but also offer comfort for your family and loved ones as patients can often be made more relaxed and comfortable.
