My name is Iona. I am Scottish and been living in Chamonix France for 10 years. I operate my own massage business here in Chamonix. I have been a Therapist for 23 years. I am a passionate therapist and i really love my work. I worked with the Scottish Rugby Team as the team massage therapist for several years. I also have worked with other pro rugby players. My business in Chamonix keeps growing each year and I still get great satisfaction from my work and seeing the benefits of massage. My clients are a mixture of local clients, tourists & pro skiers. Chamonix is a very outdoor active place of different activities, Sking, Hiking, Rock Climbing and biking so I work alongside clients that are involved in these activities. I myself also active in these Sports. I love seeing the benefits of massage to my clients and helping them recover from injuries. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience and have learnt alot about body function and i still keep learning. I have worked alongside some of the best Physios in Scotland and this has given me valuable experience. I get great satisfaction from helping people feel better whether it’s from a muscular problem, stress, tiredness or mental illness. The general effects of Massage on a persons wellbeing is incredible and the power that massage can help your body and mind. Massage is a wonderful art and i am grateful for the gift of being a therapist and i just love and enjoy my work. I look forward to competing in my first massage competition and meet other therapist and have another good experience for my massage career.
