Cancer recovery retreats
Having a serious illness can take its toll on mind and body, and our need to rest and replenish is often never greater. If you’ve had a cancer diagnosis and been through treatment, you need a sanctuary where you can pamper yourself and rebuild yourself after chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery or other treatment. The cancer recovery retreats we’ve reviewed in this section are nurturing and caring, and you’ll be in an environment where you can reconnect with yourself and regain your energy and focus, post cancer. Whether you head to south-west France, the Greek Peloponnese, leafy Somerset in the UK or a haven in Thailand, you’ll be in the excellent hands of our caring practitioners, some of whom have suffered cancer themselves. Imagine going on retreat and spending restful days, doing yoga and meditation, having some counselling about your trauma, and enjoying detoxifying, nourishing meals. You might choose to go on guided walks to re-connect with nature, or try some new therapies, like Emotional Freedom Technique or reflexology, to set you up for the next stage of your life. Your cancer might have been a wake-up call, you could consider some life coaching, or look at nutrition classes to teach you how to keep your immune system as healthy as possible.
