Cicely on Treating Pain

Overview of treatment

Partnership in relief

Spiritual care


Complementary therapies

Find the right doctor


So far as complimentary therapies are concerned, we think that probably diversion is almost the best pain killer of the lot, as well as encouraging patients to do things with their families to relate to their families and often, of course, it's healing of relationships that has an enormous amount to do with how a patient faces what is happening. But, we are also concerned with a whole area of creativity, so we have a painting, we have an artist who works with the group but we have an art therapist who works on an individual basis with people with special need. We have a potter and so there is a creative morning with clay and so on, weaving, tapestry, patchwork, a whole variety of things go on.
