Grayshott Spa has kindly donated a number of post-cancer treatment stays (“Nurture & Support Stays”) to Tackle for our members. We would like to allocate one of these 4-day stays to each region. Each stay is for one of our members, accompanied if they wish by their wife, partner or friend.

The Nurture and Support stay is a gentle and supportive 4 night programme of treatments specially designed for post cancer ‘patients’ offering treatments to relax, nourish their body and strengthen their immune system. It includes healthy spa cuisine, therapeutic spa treatments and general health advice.

Each recipient of a complementary stay will receive a pre arrival consultation by phone from one of Grayshott’s Health Consultants to discuss their treatment history and to enable their stay to be tailored to their specific needs.

  • The ‘N&S’ stays cannot be sold without Grayshott’s permission or used in conjunction with any other offer.

The Programme

Devised by Elaine Williams Grayshott’s Director of Natural Therapies, with inclusive treatments created exclusively for Grayshott by Susan Harmsworth founder of ESPA using only products that work in harmony, and do not conflict with conventional medicine.

 “Over the years we have treated numerous individuals with cancer and worked with many related health organisations. 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 is 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.” 
Sue Harmsworth ESPA Founder

“We have developed this stay as so often people with, and post, cancer are unnecessarily turned away from Spas for no reason when they can benefit from nurturing treatments and enjoy relaxing time-out from their day to day lives. Which is why we worked with ESPA, who are renowned for their holistic treatments and natural products, to develop a range of treatments for our Nurture & Support Programme.”Elaine Williams, Director of Natural Therapies

Pre arrival

Prior to staying at Grayshott, patients receive a pre arrival consultation by phone, from one of our Health Consultants, to discuss their treatment history and to enable their stay to be tailored to their specific needs.

Nutritional Evaluation

Diet can affect our health and well-being in both the short and long-term. The right diet can enable you to achieve a desirable weight, an optimum nutritional status and help protect against illness in the future.

Professional advice will be provided and an eating plan and subsequent protocol, where required, will be provided.
