Our Facilities. Supporting people living with Multiple Sclerosis in Surrey.
The Samson Centre for MS provides practical and emotional support for people who are living with Multiple Sclerosis in Surrey and surrounding areas. This page describes our facilities.
(available Mon-Friday 9am – 4.30pm )
Each member is assessed by one of our Physiotherapists who determines an appropriate course of treatment.
Group physio sessions are held in the main hall. Find out more about “The Dr Donald Dean Physiotherapists at the Samson Centre”
- Baric Oxygen Therapy
(Takes place on Mon 9am – 3pm, Tues 10.30am – 3pm, Wed 10.30am – 4.30pm, Wed 5pm – 8pm, Thurs 9am – 3pm and Fri 9am – 5.15pm)
We have an Oxygen Therapy Room and members can use our two barometric chambers to breathe in pressurised pure oxygen, thereby getting ten times the normal level of oxygen. Although it is not a cure for MS, oxygen therapy can improve the quality of life for many MS sufferers. Many of our people who use this facility find that it relieves some of their MS symptoms. This room is run entirely by trained volunteers.
If you are willing to be trained up as a Lead Operator or Second Operator, please contact the office.
Equipment The Centre boasts a number of physio aids, all of which can be used by Samson Centre for MS members under the supervision of the physiotherapists and gym staff:
Motomed cycles There are three Motomed™ exercise cycles, which are used to tone up leg muscles; one of them also allows arm muscles to be exercised.
- Standing frames
Thanks to the generosity of the Rotary Club of Guildford and Farnham Lions, we have 3 standing frames which give wheelchair users the opportunity to stand upright.
Our Gym Boasts an impressive array of weights, machines, rowing machines, treadmills and exercise cycles along with barbells and exercise balls.
