The treatments and activities we offer are intended to treat you not to treat cancer. We hope they will help you relax and replenish your body; explore and express your emotions in a supportive, understanding environment; and soothe and focus your mind. Our aim is to help you to rebuild your physical, emotional and mental well-being so that you will be better placed to recover your health and remain healthy.

I feel like I was cared for and supported throughout my week and the therapies have helped me regain some confidence and strength to move on with my recovery.  Pam

Working with specially trained and experienced therapists and teachers we offer a variety of complementary treatments, classes and talks including:

  • various types of massage
  • reflexology
  • energy healing techniques
  • Emotional Freedom Technique
  • yoga
  • meditation
  • visualisation

I really adored the treatments – truly wonderful. I felt very safe with your knowledgeable and professional therapists.  Zoe

To encourage you to feel you are a part of Puyssentut and not simply a visitor, we also welcome your participation in light tasks around the house, such as picking fruit and vegetables,  helping to prepare meals, and tending the garden.  We hope that your involvement in such tasks will help give you a sense of belonging, offer something different to focus on which can bring peace to your mind, help to gently strengthen your body and show you new ideas and techniques you can use at home.
