Spas & Massage in Chamonix
Sooth away the aches and pains of a long day on the mountain with a relaxing massage or some time in the nearest spa.
A long hard day on the hill can leave your body in need of some TLC, even more so if you've taken a tumble or have existing aches and pains.
We work with a number of local massage therapists in summer and winter, who offer either relaxation massages, deep tissue massage, relaxing aromatherapy or a more in-depth sports massage from a qualified physiotherapist.
Many of Chamonix’s luxury hotels have their own spa, swimming pool, sauna or hammam, where you can enjoy a relaxing swim or an indulgent wellbeing or spa treatment. You may find that some of the hotels offer a brunch & spa package or you might need to book at least one spa treatment to be able to use the rest of their facilities.
Chamonix now has its own ‘thermal’ spa at the QC Therme Chamonix Mont Blanc. It will offer visitors waterfalls that will apparently make you think of being in a rainforest, whirlpools and hydrojets, all heated to between 34 and 36 degrees Celcius (93-96 degrees F). There’s also a salt room, saunas, steam baths, sensory tubs, relaxation rooms and an olfactory space where you can stimulate your sense of smell with a choice of perfumes and scents. They will also be offering massages, which you can choose to enjoy as a couple or on your own.
Not far from Chamonix, in St Gervais and over in Courmayeur Italy (just on the other side of the Mont Blanc Tunnel) you’ll find two different thermal baths and spas. The Thermes de St Gervais are housed in a traditional 17th century building that has been extensively renovated in recent years to provide guests with all the latest facilities. A 3 hour session in the spa includes multi-sensory rooms, saunas, outdoor pools, hydrotherapy massages and a solarium.
Pré Saint Didier spa in Courmayeur outdoor pools with stunning mountain views, treatment rooms inside a classic Italian villa, sensory chambers, hot/cold plunge baths, healthy buffet with freshly squeezed fruit juices. Included in the entry fee is the buffet; an array of fruit, vegetables, cereals, bread and yoghurt with herbal teas and fresh fruit juices.
