“On leaving, I truly felt transformed and calmer” recent guest

Stays offer a holistic approach to each guest’s well-being, health and fitness. During their stay, guests have access to our Health Consultants and team of in-house professionals, including Natural Therapists, Physiotherapists, Nutritionists and Fitness experts.

The Programme has been 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

Pre arrival

Prior to staying at Grayshott, guests receive a pre arrival consultation by phone, from one of our Health Consultants, to discuss their treatment history.

“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
