When choosing a complementary therapy, it can help to think about:
- what you would like to do
- how it may benefit you
- any safety issues
- how much it costs.
You can read more by choosing a therapy in the Find a therapy section. There are a number of other organisations that can give you information on complementary therapies.
If you’d like to know what other people have found helpful, you can contact a local cancer support group. Or if you have internet access, you can join an online community. Support groups and online communities make it possible for people affected by cancer to give and get support. People can share their experiences of all aspects of their treatment, including complementary therapies. You can join our online community at macmillan.org.uk/community and find a support group near you at macmillan.org.uk/supportgroups
You can also read interviews with people who have tried complementary therapies at www.healthtalkonline.org.
