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 and therapists

We currently employ three staff – Eileen, our centre manager, Julie, our assistant manager and Linda, our physiotherapist. In addition, we also have Paula who provides regular sessions of reflexology.

Governance and trustees

The therapy centre is run by a company limited by guarantee, which has a small elected group of trustees. It is also a charity registered in Scotland (SC007647) and a member of the MS National Therapy Centres, which provides standards for the way we conduct service delivery to our clients.


Membership currently costs £15 per annum and is open to anyone who wishes to join


We have opportunities available if you wish to help us by providing assistance to our fundraising committee, helping out with administration or becoming a chamber operator. If you wish to help us, please contact us for further information.
