Health professionals

Thanks to the addition of a wonderful team of new volunteers, Cancer Council WA has recently expanded access to our complementary therapy services and opened a new Wellbeing Centre at our Great Southern Hub in Albany.

The complementary therapy services available in Albany include Reflexology, Massage, Reiki, and Healing Touch, and are available for guests staying out our Great Southern Hub as well as those impacted by cancer in the local community.

If you’re looking to book yourself in for our complementary therapies, or are looking for more information, please call our Great Southern Hub on 08 6389 7853.

About complementary therapy

Complementary therapies are used in conjunction with conventional medical treatments and are increasingly considered an important part of supportive care, that helps people address a wide range of challenges beyond medical treatment or cancer. They aim to improve general wellbeing, quality of life and can help people to cope with the side effects of cancer.

About our Great Southern Hub

Our Great Southern Hub has a strong home-like, non-clinical environment with gardens, plenty of light and space that provides a warm and welcoming space. The premises offers tranquil, calm and peaceful surroundings for people going through challenging times.

Accommodation is currently offered to anyone in WA, Australia or internationally, who would like to spend time with, and support loved ones who are currently an inpatient under palliative care at the Albany Community Hospice or Albany Community Hospital.

A holiday break program is also so available to support West Australians affected by advanced cancer by providing a one-off short break away at minimal cost.
