  • Online Support For You

    July 13, 2020

    Annette Lucas is an Acupuncturist, Shiatsu Practitioner and Massage Therapist at Cavendish Cancer Care.

    Introduced in March 2020, Annette has adapted the face-to-face work usually offered at Cavendish Cancer Care to provide online body-based therapies. People who have been affected by cancer have accessed online support for feelings of anxiety, and to combat the experiences of low mood, physical discomfort and the fear of impending tests, scans and results.

    In this short video clip, Annette describes body-based therapies and how they can help you. You can watch this short video by clicking play below:

    Annette says so much can be gained from online support; feeling more grounded, more connected and building resources to face the numerous challenges associated with having a cancer diagnosis for either yourself or someone close. It can involve gentle acupressure, self massage, stretching, breath work, grounding techniques and movement.

    Most importantly, this is a safe space to explore what is is right for you.

    Here is some of the feedback we have received over the last few months:

    “Found the therapy to be both practical and supportive.”

    “In a much better place emotionally.”

    “The counselling was very helpful – it provided a chance to talk openly about fears and hopes… I learnt techniques to help me manage my emotions and time to process my thoughts.”

    “The therapist was professional and informative.”

    “My wellbeing was very much supported by the therapists’ expertise, skill and care, and I feel much calmer.”

    “Amazing care. I couldn’t have wished for more.”
