As anyone who knows me will tell you, me and my husband love skiing and we were lucky enough to buy an apartment in Val Thorens 14 years ago – so we are frequent visitors.
One of the people I visit to soothe my aching legs is Donna Bennett, who runs the spa in lovely Hotel Tango and proudly offers the best massage in town.
Last year Donna gave me a fantastic massage, and also used her skills as a holistic therapist to help me cope with my grief about losing our lovely cat, Levi, after 20 years.
Donna and the Tango Hotel also took part in the very first market testing of TreatNOW last season, for which we are very grateful. We hope to launch there later in the season.
Donna offers Massage and holistic treatments in a small, but perfectly formed Spa, with views over the village and surrounding mountains.
- Why did you become a therapist?
- Why Val Thorens? And how long have you been coming back?
I had friends here and wanted to learn French. My first season was 2005.
I am very aware of the ‘mind body spirit’ connection and I work from my heart.
- What do you do in the summer?
I live in Ibiza.
- What’s your biggest challenge in 2015?
Don’t feel the need to have one.
- What’s your hidden talent?
I offer a treatment called Phe, which is amazing!!!! It balances meridians, brain hemispheres, chakras and reorganises the cells of your body to help heal whatever your higher self feels is most important. Find out more about Phe.
(P.S. I happen to know that Donna is also an amazing snowboarder!)
- What your proudest business achievement in 2014?
The great feedback and the reputation of Tango Spa.
