The Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre Lothian (MSTC) is a locally-based independent registered charity, set up in 1984 by a group of people living with MS, their families and friends. Since then we have been providing practical and beneficial information, support services and therapies at our Swanfield Centre, in Edinburgh.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40, but it can affect younger and older people too. Roughly three times as many women have MS as men.
We offer access to a wide choice of support, allowing our clients the opportunity to self-manage their symptoms.
Our therapies include:
- Oxygen therapy (formerly known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy)
and other complementary services.
The self-management options available at the centre are complemented by input from our professional staff team who can provide informed advice on the benefits of each of the therapies on offer.
We also offer the benefits of oxygen therapy (here in Leith) to people living with a range of long-term health conditions. These include: Fibromyalgia, Diabetic Ulcers, Lyme Disease, Pancreatitis, Injury/Wounds (speeds healing, and reduces scars and infections), Rheumatoid Arthritis (acute), Scleroderma, Peptic Ulcer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Parkinson's Disease, Autism, Stroke.
We are members of The MS Society and a member of MS National Therapy Centres.
