LINC is very grateful to Mandy Owen who gives up her time one afternoon a week to administer reflexology to the patients, and staff, on Rendcomb Ward side rooms. This has been welcomed by the patients who find it very beneficial – especially the men!
Reflexology has been shown to be of benefit in stress relief and in helping muscle spasm as well as many other things. Being cooped up in a small room, in isolation for several weeks, whilst receiving intensive chemotherapy is very stressful. Sitting in one position for a long time can cause muscle spasm – this is where reflexology can be of help.
Thank you Mandy for your support – it is greatly appreciated.
