Crisis UK is looking for qualified complementary therapists to help its homeless guests relax and unwind this Christmas.
A charity committed to ending homelessness, Crisis runs a series of centres each Christmas where homeless people are offered meals, activities, crafts and complementary therapies.
Crisis is seeking a devoted team of volunteers to provide body massage, shiatsu, Indian head massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, reiki, craniosacral therapy, EFT and acupressure treatments between 24 and 29 December. If you think you can give up a day (or more) across the Christmas period, you could be making a real difference to people experiencing homelessness.
Homelessness is a stressful, lonely and often traumatic experience, with 44% diagnosed with a mental health condition. In addition, people experiencing homelessness are twice as likely to experience physical ill health than the general population. Therefore, having access to therapies at Christmas can really make a difference to people experiencing homelessness.
