Listed below are a number of resources which have all been either created or recommended by our teams as suitable for our patients, their families and carers, as well as our staff and volunteers.
We demonstrate some chair based exercises you can complete at home. Participation is at one's own risk. If you have any pain or feel unwell stop exercising immediately and seek medical advice.
In this video we'll lead you in a guided relaxation technique. Please refer to our anxiety management leaflet for advice regarding preparing to relax.
You could try these techniques at home, or in the office, either on your own or with the aid of someone you live with. Most of these techniques can be performed with your hands. Others may require items such as a tennis ball, foam roller or a trigger point massager. St Helena's complementary therapist, Jenni Homewood, recommends the following techniques, as advised by Dr Oliver at Back Intelligence.

When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. For more information about Gift Aid, please visit www.gov.ukClose
