A Path to Wellbeing
“I feel cared for and supported, with an increased confidence to deal with my health challenges”
If you are living with an illness or coping with bereavement, there are a range of wellbeing activities and courses to help your journey easier to manage and enable you to find a life path that’s right for you.
For more information about any of our well-being activities telephone 01590 677198 or speak to us in the Hub.
Mindfulness can help you become more aware of your emotions and thoughts, and learn useful techniques to reduce stress. Learning mindfulness helps to focus your thoughts, feelings and sensations in the present moment rather than dwelling in the past or imagining the future.
For more details please contact Paula Noyce on 01590 613021.
“I’ve found a sense of calm and belonging”
Aromatherapy massage, Reflexology and Reiki are gentle non-invasive treatments which complement traditional medical treatments and help to improve emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing.

Please note: Oakhaven patients and carers DO NOT pay for treatments and should contact either their Clinical Nurse Specialist or Sally Woods on the above telephone number for information on how to access this service.
