The Lavender Touch help to fund a completely confidential service to help people – and their loved ones and carers – who are finding the side effects of cancer and its treatment difficult. 

We fund therapeutic treatments, including massages, reflexology, and aromatherapy, provided by a pool of qualified therapists. Our services are tailored to suit each patient’s needs and developed with the assistance of your NHS Borders health professional, encompassing a holistic approach to aid recovery. 

If you and your healthcare professionals feel you could benefit from our services, they can submit a referral to our Therapies Coordinator. 

Our Products

Made with natural ingredients and developed by clinical aromatherapists.

We worked closely with people living with cancer to develop a range of blends that were most helpful for their symptoms.

Our complementary therapy products have been specially designed to help you or a loved one relieve the side effects of cancer and its treatment.
