We are a small self-funded charity founded in 1985, by a small group of people with M.S (Multiple Sclerosis) hoping to provide support, self-help & non-drug complementary & alternative therapies to others with M.S &, later, also to those with other Neurological conditions.
In 2002, after a number of years fundraising, we moved to a new purpose built building, providing more internal space and parking – which is our current location.
Our Centre is based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, & we welcome people with a diverse range of medical conditions – although we do specialise in M.S. We also welcome carers & anyone just interested in feeling their best. All are welcome!
Our therapies range from Aramatherapy & Indian Head massage through to Hot Stone massage, Reflexology & Shiatsu (to mention just a few). We also offer Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) & general support to those in the Huntingdon, Peterborough, & Cambridge areas.
In addition, the Centre has a gym & offers a range of exercise and movement classes – all at subsidised prices (subject to membership) - as are all of our therapies. There is a cafe onsite - serving a delicious selection of light meals & other refreshments.
We also run & organise a number of social events, throughout the year, for our members to enjoy.
The centre is run by a small team of staff and volunteers, who are overseen by a board of Trustees.
Our employees and volunteers understand that when you are diagnosed with a long-term illness, self-help & care becomes an integral way of life. The term ‘self-help’, in terms of our Centre, means activities & treatments that can help to keep you, both, mentally & physically fit; whilst also aiming to help you maintain a better quality of everyday living.
We believe that, “self-help is our way of action”, & we aim to provide support & services to those wishing to help themselves.
Our charity functions independently, but is also part of a network of 50+ independent National M.S Therapy Centres throughout the UK.
The M.S Society provides further M.S self-help advice, information & support to those with M.S.
