Christmas came early for the Trinity Holistic Centre when colleagues from Sainsbury’s handed over £1,800.

Therapy pioneer gives new Teesside service his seal of approval

Posted on in Hospitals, Research

A pioneer of complementary therapy in the NHS is visiting Middlesbrough to celebrate the 10th anniversary of a unique centre. For 20 years Keith Hunt has run a massage therapy service at the Royal Free Hospital in London. Starting initially with cancer patients, the service now provides 21,000 bedside massages a year throughout the hospital – giving a welcome treat to patients aged from five to 101. Keith, who earlier this year received an MBE for his services to complementary therapy, will visit the holistic cancer care centre at The James Cook University Hospital on Wednesday 11 December to demonstrate the massage technique that will soon be on offer to patients in Middlesbrough.
