Warming Shoulder Wrap
Fatigue is a common side effect of radiotherapy treatment. This comforting microwaveable shoulder wrap is designed to gently mould to the contours of the shoulders and help take away the stresses of the day. When warmed in the microwave, the wrap produces therapeutic heat to ease tension, aches and pains around the neck and shoulder area. Can also be used as a cooling compress. The shoulder wrap contains unfragranced silica bead packs which contain no chemicals and last longer than generic wheat packs. Shoulder Wrap is 35cm x 1.5cm x 25cm.
Boswellia Joint Pain Balm - 100ml
Radiotherapy treatment can sometimes make the joints and muscles in the area being treated feel stiff, swollen and uncomfortable. Boswellia balm is a soothing natural cream specifically designed to target muscle and joint soreness. Based on wonderfully rich boswellia incense, this balm encourages flexible and pain free joints whilst providing a calming fragrance. Medosan boswellia balm is manufactured in Swiss laboratories and is inspired by an ancient recipe from Buddhist monks. Containing valuable extracts of boswellia serrata incense from India, the balm has been clinically proven to reduce joint swelling and pain as well as increasing suppleness.

Vermints - Peppermint - 40g
Patients may feel nauseous during radiotherapy treatment. Mint is well known for easing nausea and we’ve specifically chosen Vermints because they have ditched all the gross, health-harming, chemically-modified stuff that you usually find in mints and made super tasty mints from nature and nature only. VerMints are USDA Organic, Gluten-Free, non-GMO, Nut-Free and Kosher. 40g tin.
A cancer diagnosis is stressful. From the moment you open the spacemask self-heating, sleep mask, you will be temptingly invited on a journey of relaxation. Spacemasks make a great, indulgent treat for anyone facing the stress of a cancer diagnosis. Cruelty free and vegan. Single Mask.
