MORE volunteer complimentary therapists willing to give up a few hours for Cancer Council WA’s clients and families are needed.

The council is looking for people with a Certificate IV in massage and those working in reflexology.

Benefits for people having complimentary therapy include being more relaxed, reduced pain and a reduction in anxiety.

Reiki therapist Brenda Kirkeberg, who has been volunteering with the Cancer Council Midland for about three years, said it was rewarding.

“Helping people is my passion,” she said.

Carer Coral Henwood said Reiki relaxed her and she found it to be like meditation.

The council runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 3/42 Victoria Street, Midland.

Those interested or who would like more information can call 9274 4848.
