CLAN Cancer Support has introduced new relaxation classes to the free support services it provides in Banchory. The classes will initially run for six Friday sessions from April 29 to July 8 within its newly opened centre in Scott Skinner Square.
Taking place fortnightly from 12.30 to 1.30pm, the classes will be run by experienced complementary therapist Michele Leil and are open to anyone affected by cancer. Tips and advice on how to use relaxation and visualisation techniques at home to help reduce stress, anxiety and relieve tension will also be provided.
Michele said: “Relaxation classes have proved hugely popular at our other centres in the north-east and we are pleased to be extending this service to our new centre in Banchory. Learning self-help techniques to help cope with the stress of a cancer diagnosis or treatment can have a big impact on wellbeing and promote better sleep.
“The classes are informal and are followed by refreshments and a chance for a chat. I would urge anyone who thinks they may benefit to get in touch. Places are limited so we would encourage people to get in touch soon and book a place.
Based in Aberdeen, CLAN covers the whole of north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland, offering a number of free services by appointment from its Banchory base for anyone affected by cancer, including one-to-one support, counselling, access to its specialist children and families’ service, complementary therapies and wellbeing activities.
CLAN is open in Banchory every Thursday from 10 am to 4pm for complementary therapies, information and support, no appointment necessary, and Fridays by prior appointment only.
