One-to-one Therapies

ARC offers a range of complementary therapies free of charge on a one-to-one basis.


Acupuncture helps to correct imbalances in the body’s natural energy and life force and can help alleviate the side-effects of cancer treatment.

Manual lymph drainage

Manual lymph drainage is a specialised, gentle type of massage that helps drain the lymph and is an important part of lymphodema treatment.


Reflexology involves certain pressure points in the feet being massaged to improve symptom control and to produce a state of deep inner relaxation.

Bio-energy healing

Bio-energy healing is a non-invasive therapy that works to clear imbalances through the body's energy fields.


Metamorphosis uses gentle touch and enables the letting-go of unconscious tension.
