Muscle Massage

I’m a massage, yoga & pilates junkie
and think that holiday, especially where one exerts oneself physically,
deserves a bit of pampering … Here are my (and my insiders) top picks from
super services I tried.

Chilali Massage:
We loved the wonderful in-Chalet service from
American entrepreneur Penney Megginson who very clearly runs a top-notch
service. Fantastic. Deep tissue talent. They specialize in: sports massage,
Swedish massage, hot stone massage, Indian head massage, Thai massage, pilates
& yoga classes and even host summer hikes!  penney@chilalimassage.com

The Verbier Touch:
Brigitta Fairhall of is probably best known in hotel & chalet visits. I was
treated at The Lodge by this group who clearly source talented
practitioners. brigitta@theverbiertouch.com

Body Focus:
Rumor has it newcomer Leah Fullwood, an excellent massage therapist, is gaining
popularity … hotel and chalet visits of course. leah@bodyfocus.ch

Spa Valmont, Chalet d’Adrien:
Insider Celine Donin de Rosiere highly
recommends these, but states, “If you are after a good massage you should
go to Massage Michellod, a hippy basement … shabby but the best massage in
town by far.”

Nevai Hotel Spa:
I’m told by Insider Noah Silberscmidt that this spa has some good massage
therapists as well. It  opens onto a terrace where you are wrapped in warm
blankets while sipping warm tea contemplating life … (personally I found the
space unimpressive). www.nevai.ch
