The LJMC also stocks a range of relaxation CDs to buy or borrow. Our own CD - Relaxation - is also available to purchase.  

Do I have to pay for the classes?

All LJMC services are offered free of charge to NHS patients under the care of an oncologist based at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. 

The relaxation classes at the LJMC are funded by voluntary donations. Any contributions towards the cost of the service are therefore always gratefully received. 

Private patients having treatment at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre may also be eligible to use our services. Please call the Helpline for details.


The most effective way of managing stress and anxiety is to make time for yourself and practise calming exercises regularly. Download our leaflet for exercises you can practise at home.
