ABOUT US

ABOUT US

The Grampian Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre is one of more than 60 centres across the country aiming to improve the quality of life of people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Our centre opened in 1983 to provide oxygen therapy for people with MS and other conditions in the north east of Scotland and our services have expanded to offer reflexology, physiotherapy and massage to our clients. We treat other conditions, including fibromyalgia, cancer, burns and sports injuries.

We also provide advice and support to all who attend the centre, their families and carers in a friendly and welcoming environment.

The centre does not receive government funding and is entirely dependent on donations for its survival.

Our History

Fundraising started early in 1983 to buy the equipment needed to provide this service locally in Aberdeen and, in November 1983, we opened our existing premises in Dyce. Gradually, the addition of more therapy space and available funding has allowed us to employ three staff and provide a range of other therapies to help people with MS and other conditions including Long Covid to cope. Current running costs are about £95,000 a year, which is all raised voluntarily from members, the public and the generosity of local businesses.

STAFF & THERAPISTS

Our incredible staff, therapists, and volunteers play an integral role in providing the exceptional care and support we offer.

Without their dedication, compassion, and expertise, we would not be able to make a positive difference.
