There are a number of different complementary therapies| that may help people cope with fatigue.
Complementary therapies include:
These therapies may have to be paid for but they are sometimes available on the NHS, or you may be able to get them through a cancer support group|.
Some doctors have been reluctant for their patients to use complementary therapies mainly because they have not been properly tested in clinical trials. But many people who use these therapies find that they are relaxing and help improve their general well-being. They can also help a person feel more in control of their health and of what’s happening to them.
We have more information on complementary therapies| which you may find helpful.
