Testemonial of Joanne Brown ,Member and Cancer Patient.
I was diagnosed with a cancerous Brain Tumour in 2008 for which I had surgery followed by 6 weeks of Radiotherapy. I then went into Remission until 2012 when I had a recurrence and had to undergo further surgery followed by 9 months of chemotherapy. This time I went into remission until 2015 when my scan showed signs that cancerous cells may be trying to wake up again so I went straight back on the chemotherapy. By this time, I had met and married my now husband Mark. As soon as he found out what was happening ,he started to research different supplements and alternative therapies which could possibly help in my fight against cancer! One such therapy was Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBOT.
Mark discovered that cancer thrives in low Oxygen environments so if I was to receive this treatment, not only would it assist in killing the cancer cells but it would also help me to recover between treatments! We discussed this with my oncologist who agreed it wouldn’t do me any harm. Mark, eventually found the MS Therapy Centre at Trafford, who agreed to let me have my treatments there.
Mark and I have always tried to do a walk everyday, about 2 miles, weather dependent. I found that prior to the HBOT treatment I struggled up the hill about half way around, however ,after approx 20 sessions I found that I could get all the way around without slowing down at all and I can now power walk my way around.
Not only that ,I find the staff and clients at the MS Therapy Centre to be such inspirational ,friendly people which makes the whole experience a pleasure.

I have been using Trafford MS Centre for Oxygen treatment for 10 years and to be honest I wasn’t sure the Oxygen was helping until I missed it for 3 weeks in which time I became drained and tired. After going back on the Oxygen I was back to normal and felt great. The fatigue disappeared which was terrible for me at the time. I have learned more information about MS by going to the centre than I ever got from doctors ie treatments etc. The centre has people from all walks of life ,all religions ,all really good people. The Oxygen really helps but meeting other people with MS is just as helpful.
I highly recommend Trafford Park MS Therapy Centre.

Testemonial of Rob Taylor who suffers from Autism and Aspergers Syndrome.
Rob was recommended by a private clinic in Halifax to undergo 50 sessions of Oxygen treatment. After 50 sessions he returned to Halifax for further checkups where it was found that his Central Nervous System had greatly improved. His bloods had improved. His circulation has greatly improved and his arteries have also greatly improved. He has been advised to undergo a further 20 sessions of treatment and then return to Halifax for further tests.

I am a lady over 50 married with grown up children. I suffer from Opsoclonus Myoclonus , a rare neurological condition. This condition hospitalised me for 8 months , in which time I was in an awake coma, unable to open my eyes. When discharged , after some months Trafford Carers advised me to consider the Oxygen treatment at the Therapy Centre, which I did with some trepidation. My doctor had to be consulted and she had no objections.
The management at the centre suggested several visits close together to start with and then to top up every so often as an individual needs. I followed this routine and immediately beneficial effects were experienced. My bladder control improved from me waking six or seven times in the night to now getting up once a night.
Because of the Oxygen I feel more relaxed, stronger and more energetic. My general condition has also improved, the shaking that was so severe has reduced dramatically. My balance has improved but I still need a walking stick. However before Oxygen treatment I had to use a wheelchair for any distance.
These improvements were outweighed by the social interaction and support of other centre users who I socialise with over a cup of tea. Usually someone there is experiencing a similar situation to me and can offer advice. I have also participated in other activities in the centre including Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi. My husband operates the chambers as a volunteer. I attend the centre twice a week to a pressure of thirty three feet in the chambers.
