‘I was lucky enough to receive an Oncology Face Massage from Gazelli House South Kensington and just wanted to say a big thank you.
I have just finished 5 weeks of Chemotherapy & Radiotherapy. I now have an 8 week wait before the next step of my treatment which is surgery & then possibly more chemotherapy so this could not have come at a better time.
From the moment I entered Gazelli House I was made to feel very welcome the therapist talked to me about my concerns & worries and then I had the massage. It was the most relaxing thing I have ever had - I almost forgot my illness.
Afterwards the therapist made me a cup of rose tea & chatted to me about ways to relax & cope with my anxiety. I would definitely return should I get the opportunity.’
