The MS Therapy Centre is a registered charity. For many people with MS and other conditions such as sports injuries, leg ulcers, strokes, cancer etc, treatments such as Oxygen Therapy, Physiotherapy, Osteopathy and Massage are not available nor affordable on the NHS. The Centre bridges this gap and offers these facilities and services. The Centre is entirely self-funded and we rely on donations. We welcome people of all ages who have MS or other conditions. Once you are a member (there is a small voluntary annual subscription), you have access to all the facilities at the centre and can book as many therapy sessions as you require up to a six week period.
Oxygen Therapy. Oxygen Treatment is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment that has been used to treat the symptoms of MS and other conditions such as sports injuries, leg ulcers, strokes and following cancer therapies for many years. The treatment involves breathing pure oxygen at pressure in a special chamber. The chamber at the Centre can accommodate 6 people and is fully tested, maintained and insured.
