Clinic

We bring everything we need to create a clinic in your chalet. Treatment couch, towels, tape and massage oil  but most importanty experience and knowledge. Between us we have 50 years of experience so you know you will be in good hands.

 

physiotherapy

If you have a niggle in your back or pain in your knee our experts are here to help. From biomechanical assessments to your musculoskeletal diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan. Not just in the Alps but we will help arrange for you to see a consultant, if required when you return to the UK. 

massage

To aid muscle recovery by increasing blood flow, flushing toxins from the muscles and decreasing soreness. Ideally have your massage every day to delay that onset of soreness but if you only have time for one massage make it mid week.

exercise

We have created a couple of classes based on a bit of yoga, pilates, tai chi and just some plain good stretches to get you on the mountain and stay on the mountain.  Once you are in resort you can choose from a early rise wake up class or post ski stretch. My preference is after skiing....

enjoy your holiday


We are here to ensure you make the most out of every single day of your well deserved skiing holiday, because you are worth it.

We are here to make sure you enjoy your skiing holiday, every single day. We believe that prevention is the best way to ensure that you can ski more, hurt less.

Preperation is key, the muscles that you use when you are skiing are used in different forms of exercise but not usually every day thus the loading increases and this is why you start to get some muscle soreness by the 2nd-3rd day. So before you get to resort email us to get a 6 week programme of exercises to help you get ski fit straight to your inbox.

Recovery is the next most important element of any skiing holiday. Using the chalet steam room or jacuzzi is always useful and ensuring you have some stretches that you can do in the evening will also help. The best thing you can do though is to book some massages to help the muscles recover by improving the muscles circulation.

 

Unfortunately all the preparation in the world doesn't mean  you won't have a fall or accident on the mountain.

Our team of Physiotherapists and Osteopaths have have a wealth of knowledge and experience. We will come to your chalet and do a few tests to check what the problem is and then explain it in detail to ensure you understand your injury, know exactly what you need to do and be confident with the information and treatment.  If you can ski away you will and if you can't, Kate will telephone a top consultant in the UK and arrange an appointment for you.

If you have already seen someone and would just like to ask a couple of questions or if you need a recommendation on specific injury or advise on what to do and which consultant to see when you get back to the UK then please call us and we will endeavour to answer any questions.

Kate Henry

 

Kate has owned and operated PhysioVal for the last 6 years. She prides herself on having the best Physio Team in the Alps. The mastermind behind the Physioval ethos "ski more, hurt less", she is well known in resort as the "go to person" if a last minute massage or an injury assessment is needed. Somehow she waves a magic wand and an expert Physio from Team PhysioVal appears. She gives a mean deep tissue massage too !!

Mark Bender

 

Mark has been skiing in Val d'Isere for 22 years. He has the title of just about the oldest Seasonnaire in resort, but that experience leads to a yoda-like wisdom. His opinion is sought by select Specialist Surgeons all over the world. Mark is part of Team PhysioVal as well as Team Murray so he is kept pretty busy! His recovery massage is legendary. It keeps Andy on the court and can keep you on the slopes. 

 

Natalie Sullivan

 

Natalie skis like a pro, but when she boards it flows from her soul. She is an experienced chartered physiotherapist who spends her summers in busy London sports injury clinics and winter seasons riding from New Zealand too America and for the last 4 seasons, in Val d'Isere. She knows snow sport injuries and what it takes to get you enjoying every day in resort. Natalie can make your body feel rejuvenated to let you ski more and hurt less
