More treatment rooms and an aqua therapy pool are planned
More than 150 people with multiple sclerosis (MS) in Cornwall have registered with a new treatment centre since it opened eight weeks ago.
The Cornwall Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre at Hewaswater offers support and treatment for patients and families.
The MS Society said about 1,000 people in the county had the degenerative disease, which affects balance, vision and can cause bouts of paralysis.
The centre is trying to raise £100,000 to open more treatment rooms.
It has taken more than five years to complete the £2m "Merlin Project".
The centre offers physiotherapy, homeopathy, acupuncture, reflexology and counselling.
It also has a fully-equipped gym and a hyperbaric chamber which delivers high doses of oxygen to help relieve symptoms.
Plans for the second phase include three more therapy rooms, a meeting room and an aqua therapy pool.
