Treatment Focus: Nurture and Support

Following many years of development with Wellness for Cancer™, a non-profit educational foundation, we’ve developed an extensive training programme and collection of nurturing face and body rituals for those experiencing various degrees and stages of cancer.

Sue Harmsworth, our Founder and CEO says,

“The whole programme has been carefully developed around the philosophy of nurturing, soothing and relaxing at a time of varying degrees of stress and anxiety, not incorporating any aggressive products or procedures. It’s also based on the understanding that each individual will have different symptoms, degrees and stages of cancer, and that each cancer will manifest differently in each person.”

A gentle and supportive programme, Nurture and Support allows those living with cancer the opportunity to have the same ESPA experience as their friends or family in a safe and caring environment.

Beginning with a personal consultation, the gentle rituals are carefully designed to help relax and support at a time needed the most, ultimately helping to aid the reduction of stress and anxiety while promoting inner calm.

All experiences begin with guided breath-work and visualisation to steady the breathing along with crystals, where appropriate, to create a state of deep calm.

Offered at our Gleneagles (Scotland), Grayshott (Surrey) and Corinthia (London) spas, rituals include:
