Welcome to Cork ARC Cancer Support House at 29 Friar Street in Youghal.
From our centre in Youghal, Cork ARC Cancer Support House offer a range of psychological supports for cancer patients and their families living in the communities of East Cork and West Waterford.
All of our services are available free of charge, and people affected by cancer are warmly welcomed to the centre on Wednesdays between 10.00am and 4.00pm. We encourage cancer patients and their families to reach out to our team for support.
The drop in centre is the focus of the house, where every Wednesday, visitors are welcome to call in without an appointment, and speak to a trained volunteer listener. Support is also be available by telephone, on 024 91654. Our range of supports and therapies are designed to complement the medical model and aim to alleviate the stress associated with a cancer diagnosis.
There are many valuable benefits from touch therapies. Research shows that massage during cancer can relieve pain, fatigue and nausea as well as increase relaxation, quality of sleep, range of movement and positively affect scar tissue.
Reflexology is one of the most popular therapies that people use to alleviate the stress associated with cancer. Reflexology can help you relax and improve your mood and wellbeing.
We offer a relaxation class for those affected by cancer with very gentle yoga movements and breath awareness which aim to enhance relaxation and help manage the stress of a cancer diagnosis.
