In June 2008, Helen Young, reflexology and massage therapist, was appointed by the charity. The position is fully funded by Friends of ANCHOR and provides a free professional service for all patients at the ANCHOR unit.
Helen has over fifteen years’ experience in this field and offers therapeutic reflexology and massage sessions adapted specifically for each patient’s needs and administered either at their bedside on the wards or whilst they are receiving treatment at the ANCHOR unit clinics.
The feedback so far has been extremely positive with patients reporting a great sense of calmness and wellbeing after receiving a treatment from Helen which has made them feel less stressed and more relaxed.
Patients wishing to book an appointment with Helen or requiring more information should ask an ANCHOR unit staff member.
