The Harmony Therapy Trust provides a host of holistic treatments for people with a range of conditions.
Based at the Sheppey Healthy Living Centre, off Royal Road, Sheerness, the charity provides a host of complimentary therapies. It’s designed for sufferers of life-altering illnesses such as cancer and Parkinson’s Disease after a referral from their health service provider. Therapies include reflexology, Indian head massage, reiki, acupressure, hypnotherapy and counselling.
Financial trustee Rita Couzins said: “This is a charity that as far as we know is the only one in the county offering support to people at various stages of their life-altering illnesses and,palliative care, for those wishing to remain in their homes.”
Since it was set up five years ago, the trust has more than 40 therapists at its disposal. A number of patients continue therapies long after the charity has completed its funding.
Feedback enables customers to give their opinion on the treatment received.
Mrs Couzins said: “Since starting with only a few helpers and enthusiastic therapists, we’ve been able to offer therapies to more than 400 people and there are more than 100 at various stages of therapy.
“We continue organising and monitoring a training school to allow therapists to provide first-class therapies.
“Funding from Lloyds Bank Community Fund has enabled us to offer therapy to the carers, as they often struggle financially as well as emotionally with caring for their loved ones.”
