To minimise the risk of infection, the Trust has temporarily suspended face-to-face therapy, but is now offering free telephone support via The Arran Ear - 01770 649 505 - with welcome support from Foundation Scotland.
Mary Davies was well known on Arran, as a healer, hypnotherapist, artist and writer. Always keen for people to benefit from holistic therapy, she left instructions for her estate to be used to provide such therapy for those in need.
Since her death in 2012 her Trustees have been engaged with this charity. Suitably qualified Arran therapists are funded to provide a series of treatments to those identified by the island’s medical professionals as in need of feel-good therapy. Free appointments will be prioritised by the Trust according to need and consistent with its resources. Top priority is given to those caring for loved ones as it is felt that, due to their selfless devotion to their dependants, they often overlook their own needs.
The therapies offered are both complimentary and complementary; they are not a substitute for medical intervention when this is required.
Funding for the provision of therapies comes in part from the rental of Mary's house in Brodick. Last year the Trust was selected by our local Co-op as a recipient of its Community Fund. Charitable donations are always welcome, enabling therapy to be offered to more people.
