“She fixes me up every time getting into key areas affected by my training such as my calves and ITB. Even after a couple of weeks I still find the benefits and can get back into my training at high intensity. I have even used her for easier relaxing massages when my body feels like it. If you need any treatment from Reiki to massage to deep tissue Hattie rocks!

Without the massage I have no doubt I would have numerous injuries. I haven’t been majorly injured since I have being seeing Hattie.”

“I train for ironman distance triathlon which means training up to 25 hours per week in swimming, cycling & running.  And between work & training I don’t get much time for recovery between sessions. This all leads to a massive lactic acid build up in my muscles & my performance noticeably starts to drop off.  Sports massage really helps & speeds up my recovery.  But, there is a big difference between a good & bad massage & I think that Hattie has magic hands, elbows & arms.  Her massage gets in really deep & releases the tension. She really zeros in on the problem areas which after immediately feel better and looser. After 24hrs I feel like I have a new set of legs and my performance bounces back! ”

“Whenever I’m away on an active holiday I make sure I organise a deep tissue massage or two to work out the knots and strains from the combo of day to day life and the season’s climbing/hiking/skiing. My last trip to Chamonix was no exception with respect to looking for a good massage but it was radically different with respect to the massages I found.

Hattie is by far the best deep tissue masseuse I have ever encountered. I have had hundreds of massages around the world and nothing I have experienced before comes close. After my first session with Hattie I could feel a release of strain that I had carried for years relating back to old canoe-surfing and climbing injuries. I was so impressed that in my 9 days in Chamonix I booked in for 10 hours of massage. Hattie is just that good! Even though I had spent three harrowing days climbing up and down Mt Blanc after the sessions with Hattie I came home feeling 5 years younger with an amazing relaxed, limber and fluid feel all over.

Further to her technical ability, Hattie was also a font of knowledge on the activities and hotspots of the local area and generally a great person to chat with through the sessions.
I literally can’t recommend Hattie enough. Whether you suffer from an old nagging injury that needs working out or you want a deep, stress banishing massage, Hattie delivers. Chamonix is renowned for climbing, hiking, biking and snow sports but now it’s well worth a visit just for a PureFix massage.”

Laurence Harding – Lawyer

“I have been getting weekly sports massage treatment with Hattie for the last four years whilst I have been competing in triathlons and cycling time trials.

Regular sports massage has allowed me to maintain a very heavy training and racing schedule and Hattie is very good at identifying and dealing with potential injury problems before they arise.

Hattie has many years experience and is the best massage therapist I have come across in years of training. She is also great fun and interesting to talk to!”

“Training for Ironman takes a toll on my body. I believe my weekly massage with Hattie allows me to continue to train injury free. Over time Hattie has come to know all the niggles and aches and pains I have from high mileage running and cycling and Hattie is an expert at massaging out the tightness.”

Penny Comins – Journalist for Cycling Weekly

“Receiving massage is key to my training.  By having my niggles massaged out and week on week maintenance I don’t get any injuries that many other athletes suffer from.  The physical release means I can train harder and more effectively the following week, gaining more from each training session.  Not only does massage help my body repair itself and become stronger, it gives my mind a rest and helps to re-set me mentally through the relaxation. I have been seeing Hattie for therapy for three years now and am very impressed with her professional approach to me, as a client.  She is always furthering her technique and her knowledge through readings and courses’, transpiring into a more accurate and targeted massage.”

Hattie is a remarkably gifted masseuse, who is very attuned to the unique issues in each body and who also has the skill to release long-term constriction and tightness. After only one massage I’m am completely free of chronic pain behind my left shoulder blade and my left knee is the best it’s been in a month! My knee was so bad I thought I needed surgery, but I only needed Hattie’s magically penetrating bodywork. Kate, Austin, TX

“I called Hattie after an ultra-trail (110 km) and she saved my body ! Efficient and agreeable massage at home. Just perfect. Moreover Hattie, who I know as a student (I am her French teacher) is a lovely and very serious person. She also treats a friend who has significant physical problems and he says he has never had such good massages.”

Corrine Champigny – Yoga Teacher and Retreat Leader USA

“I booked Hattie for two Yoga Retreats that I held in Chamonix as she came very highly recommended. I had a total of 24 people that would need massages over a period of several weeks. Having a massage back ground myself I wanted to make sure my yoga students were well taken care of by a great therapist. I tried Hattie first before my students arrived and I was so thrilled with the work she did on me that I was able to keep her busy non-stop during both of my retreats with my enthusiastic referral. Hattie is not only an excellent therapist but also has a wide range of expertise in many types of therapies. I look forward to booking her again next year to once again work on my Yoga Retreats in Chamonix.”

Simon Tuffen – Managing Director, Norwich, UK

I first had a treatment from Hattie during a week’s snowboarding in Chamonix last winter. She did such a great job that I made sure I kept a note of her number for any future visits to Chamonix.

This season I came back for a grueling backcountry snowboarding week – quite a shock to my normally office-bound legs! After the first 3 days I was suffering from super-tight IT bands in both my thighs. I had a massage from Hattie in the middle of the week, which really helped ease my legs and get the most out of my snowboarding during the 2nd half of the week. I then had another massage to wind down at the end of my trip.

I’ve had a lot of deep tissue massages in various parts of the world and Hattie is as good as any therapist I have found. She seems to have an instinctive knowledge of where she needs to work and her excellent technique quickly eases very stiff muscles.

Hattie is a very keen snowboarder, skier and cyclist, so she is very knowledgeable about the physical demands most of her clients will encounter, and her enthusiastic personality adds to the quality of her treatments.

I would highly recommend a treatment from Hattie to anyone in need of a remedial massage or simply deep relaxation.

“Lovely to meet you and thank you for such a great massage. One of the best I have had over the course of many years. I will certainly be happy to recommend your services not only to guests at my Chalet but also to other friends in the Cham valley.”
