Who are we?
They will have experienced the same mix of emotions you are feeling and undoubtedly wanted answers to many of the same questions you have. So the first thing you will find at the Kent MS Therapy Centre is a group of people who understand what you are going through.
We have Members of all ages and with wide-ranging experience of the condition, but who have found the Centre helpful in navigating their way through.
What do we offer?
The Centre was established to offer therapies to people with MS that complement your treatment, help manage symptom and to live a fuller live. Over the years we have expanded the range of therapies on offer and we encourage Members to try different options to work out which work best for you.
Physiotherapy, aquatherapy, oxygen therapy and massage, as well as counselling and nutrition. Whether it’s about improving your movement or wellbeing, managing pain or helping with relaxation and sleep, there is bound to be something that will appeal to you.
What’s the first step?
You can come along to visit the Centre with no obligation. When the Centre is fully open you can take a tour, meet the staff, and maybe stop for a cuppa with other Members using the social area. While Covid restrictions are in place we can’t offer the same social experience of course, but we hope very much that we will be able to very soon.
You can phone or email the Centre to book an assessment with our Support Manager, Karen Middlemiss, to discuss which of the therapies on offer might help you most. Assessments are currently taking place by video or phone.
How much does it cost?
As a charity we aim to make the services affordable to benefit as many people as possible. There is a small annual membership fee that gives you complete access to the Centre. A voluntary contribution is requested towards the cost of services, with additional help available for members experiencing hardship. Find out how to become a Member here.
