If you don’t always return from ski trips revitalised –but tired out and muscle-aching – we have a cure to keep you going till your next ski fix.
The Gentlemen’s Tonic salon in Mayfair will massage away any aching calfs or quads then set you up for the day with a shave, haircut then have a new you floating down nearby Bond Street feeling like a million dollars.
We tested the de-luxe male clinic after a really hectic two-week tour of French Alps, followed by a week in Austria’s tough Arlberg and then took a long drive to ski Arosa in Switzerland before returning to London absolutely muscle heavy and really tired out.
We remembered Gentlemen’s Tonic because owner Olivier Bonnefoy had impressed our readers a few years back by giving advice on how to shave properly.
And this time it was our editors who were impressed with Olivier’s Mayfair salon, and his well-trained staff. And the massage worked miracles on our really tight muscles.
So we know where to visit after this month’s ski marathon – to Tahoe in California, then back to France and finally Austria again. www.gentlemenstonic.com
Good ski Guide has started a tour of salons offering both pre-ski massage and after-ski recovery and can well recommend Gentlemen’s tonic and also the very-busy Lomax in Fulham Road, where we joined lots of keenie young and beautiful things working out and ended off with a well-earned massage, www.lomaxpt.com
