Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

pro­vide some­thing very dif­fer­ent but equally as im­por­tant in sup­port­ing my well­be­ing – com­ple­men­tary ther­apy.

“I used to feel very up­tight and jit­tery and couldn’t sleep or re­lax lead­ing up to and af­ter a ses­sion of chemo­ther­apy.

“Now when I need to come in for treat­ment, know­ing I am also go­ing to see Wendy or one of her col­leagues makes all the dif­fer­ence, and re­ceiv­ing reiki while hav­ing my chemo­ther­apy has re­lieved all of th­ese symp­toms.

“It really is very pow­er­ful and ef­fec­tive.”

The com­ple­men­tary ther­apy for adult pa­tients with can­cer has been avail­able on the Eden ward for the past three years.

Ms Dines said: “I can’t thank Al­lan and Paulette enough for this su­per mas­sage chair.

“It will be an in­valu­able as­set to the ser­vice and of great ben­e­fit to many of our pa­tients.

“We pro­vide a range of com­ple­men­tary ther­a­pies in­clud­ing aro­mather­apy, re­flex­ol­ogy, mas­sage and reiki, which is what Al­lan finds so ben­e­fi­cial.

“Af­ter re­ceiv­ing ther­apy, pa­tients of­ten com­ment that many of the side ef­fects they ex­pe­ri­ence with can­cer and its treat­ment, such as anx­i­ety, fatigue and pain are re­lieved.

“Al­lan is one of a kind. As well as fundrais­ing for us, he has fundraised and do­nated to a num­ber of other char­i­ties, which is an in­di­ca­tion of his de­ter­mi­na­tion to help oth­ers where he can and his pos­i­tive at­ti­tude to live ev­ery day the best he can.

“We can’t thank him and his wife Paulette enough.”
