Gentle recovery from cancer treatment
From diagnosis to recovery, the cancer journey is quite a roller coaster. We help people who are already in remission from cancer to reinvigorate themselves to embrace the challenges of everyday life. An ensana health spa stay is designed to relax the senses and calm the mind. And this in turn boosts the immune system, which can speed recovery from anti-cancer treatments.
Our drinking cures provide naturally carbonated mineral water, or you can take a dry bath in carbon dioxide. Alternatively, carbon dioxide can be blown over the vulnerable parts of the body to:
- improve blood flow through the tiniest capillaries
- stimulate metabolism
- heal radiation scars
- boost immunity and resistance to infections.
At ensana we support our guests with a gentle programme of deliciously healthy meals, natural therapies, fresh air and social events. To rebuild your muscular strength and cardiovascular stamina, our physiotherapists prescribe gentle activities such as Nordic walking and aqua gymnastics.
All cancers are suitable for an ensana health spa stay, including: breast cancer, chronic leukaemia, multiple myeloma, lymphoma. But you must have been in stable remission for at least six months.
