SEDGEMOOR residents affected by breast cancer are invited to take part in retreats designed to aid recovery.

Personal trainer and sports massage therapist, Sam Ford, is running holistic retreats in France, Sweden and the UK for when people’s treatments have finished.

The Nourish and Flourish retreats include classes from a team of yoga teachers and Nordic walking with qualified instructor, Sam.

Sam, 38, said: “I believe lifestyle factors may contribute to cancer. The retreats are set up with this in mind and are for people affected by breast cancer - after their surgical, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments have finished. The programme aims to help people put their lives back on track.”

The retreats cater for a maximum of six people, including the partners, friends or family of those affected by cancer.

They will run in springtime and autumn. For more information, visit or call 07977518558. Alternatively, email
