Do Macmillan offer a reflexology service to treat severe neuropathy or can you recommend someone in Cardiff.  

Many Thanks

    Hi  

    Thank you for reaching out to Macmillan. 

    May I ask, are you enquiring for yourself?  I am wondering how you (or the patient) are feeling?  I can’t imagine how difficult managing neuropathy must be:  perhaps you may like to tell us a little more about how you (or the patient) are coping day to day? 

    Regarding your query about Reflexology, whilst Macmillan doesn’t have a service, I am able to point you towards organisations where you may find options. 

    Sometimes a good place to start is your local cancer centre.  They have the benefit of local knowledge, and while Reflexology isn’t mentioned on the websites below, a call to them may uncover a local service that they have experience referring to.

    Another good place to explore is Cancer Research UK.  The link below has some great information regarding reflexology, and, as you scroll down the page you will see The Association of Reflexologists option to search for a therapist in your area.
