Puyssentut welcomes any one who has or is recovering from cancer. It does not matter whether you have cancer for the first time, whether cancer has recurred, or whether you have been in remission for years, we have something to offer.
“The therapists’ commitment, the treatments, the fantastic food, the inspiring atmosphere: it all works together in a marvellous concept that definitely works.” Bernhard
While we fully acknowledge the importance and effectiveness of standard medical treatments for cancer, we believe you can benefit enormously from some extra tender loving care and from being seen for yourself rather than as a patient. We hope that by supporting you in ways that complement traditional medical care we can help you to improve the effectiveness of your treatment and minimise the time spent in hospital; support you while you find your feet again after the treatment is over; and offer tools to help prevent the recurrence of cancer and live a fulfilled life.
Our Restore and Revitalise retreats offer you a relaxing and restful environment; delicious, nutritious food that helps to detoxify you, boost your immune system and aid recovery; and a daily programme of yoga, complementary treatments, talks, and meditation to help bring body, mind and emotions into balance.
“As the week progressed, you could see how people changed as the tensions and anxieties with which they had arrived began to melt away.” Jane
At the end of your stay we hope you will leave feeling in better physical, emotional and mental health; more relaxed, confident and focussed; inspired about your life and clear about your priorities; and equipped with tools to live a healthy, stress free life.
"For the past year I have been defined by my cancer diagnosis. I was either overwhelmed by it or trying to block it out. Now I accept it as being just one aspect of 'me' and something I can look at differently. I can be 'me' again and I can see a future that I can take control back over. I can start living again." Sue
