Lisa Behzadi is a qualified Microsystems Acupuncturist & a specialist in NADA & Battlefield Acupuncture. Treatments given to people after a breast cancer diagnosis can cause hot flushes ranging from uncomfortable to debilitating. Studies have shown the benefits of the NADA protocol (developed at the Lincoln Memorial Hospital in New York) for cancer patients for reducing the side effects of treatment, hot flushes, anxiety/stress, trauma/PTSD & aiding sleep & relaxation.
As well as seeing visitors for 1-2-1 appointments, Lisa will also be introducing twice weekly drop in community NADA acupuncture group sessions at Future Dreams House. For any enquiries please email Lisa@futuredreams.org.ukBook an Acupuncture session

Emilie Charlesworth – Massage can help reduce anxiety and improve sleep, and specialist skincare can alleviate some of the side effects of breast cancer treatment. Join Emilie for a 1-2-1 oncology massage to see how it could be beneficial to you following a diagnosis. Oncology massage refers to a specific kind of massage technique that is suitable for those living with cancer or receiving cancer treatment. It is adapted to suit the individual, and Emilie will tailor the massage depending on the specific, changing needs of each client. This may be because a client is undergoing chemotherapy, is recovering from surgery, has reduced mobility or can only sit or lie comfortably in certain positions or for brief periods of time.Book an Oncology Massage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Practitioner Sharon has been a Lymphatic Drainage Practitioner since 2012. She worked as a Cancer Complementary Therapist at The Harley Street Cancer Centre and was part of a team responsible for setting up a service dedicated to educating and assisting patients in understanding and caring for their Lymphoedema. Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a specific type of massage which aids the movement of Lymph around the body. The movement of Lymph can be impeded by cancer, cancer treatment and post recovery physiological effects, causing swelling and pain in areas of the body. The massage is very gentle and works to improve the natural flow of Lymph and decrease swelling and pain. Self Lymphatic Drainage is also taught and is extremely beneficial for the ongoing health of the Lymphatic System.Book a Lymphatic Drainage Appointment

Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone. Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House. We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help.
