OUR TEAM OF EXPERTS
A NEW APPROACH
RHIAN EVANS - CREATOR AND SPA DIRECTOR
As a Contemporary dancer, turned fitness trainer, yoga and Pilates teacher, Rhian Evans attaches great importance on the body, its movements and its functions. Having lived in the mountains for many years, in 2007 Rhian began offering treatments and massages, attracting a clientele of skiers and non-skiers interested in finding pleasure outside of skiing.
Her expertise and empathy delight her guests, whom she follows all over the world, at home or during trips (USA, Turkey, Switzerland, England, Balearics...). Over the years, she has enriched her technique and devoted herself to the research and development of new practices, surrounding herself with a team of experienced practitioners and therapists.
Antares Wellness is the result of all these efforts and the expression of her vision of well-being; a balance between the constraints of modern life and the dreams and aspirations that are alive in each of us.

PATRICIA CHOFFEL - USING NATURAL TREATMENTS INSPIRED BY THE MOUNTAIN
Originally from Méribel, Patricia Choffel has a particular attachment to the mountains and the forest where, as a child, she spent most of her time. During her younger years, she travelled between London, Paris, Nice and Monaco, experiencing the pangs of urban life, overactivity and stress, until the breaking point in March 2014. From then on, she undertook a two-year journey to explore the lakes and wild rivers of Europe, allowing time to reconnect with nature and herself. Settling in the Chartreuse region of France, Patricia was introduced to ancient ethnobotany and classical European herbology. She began a long process of research and development to reintegrate the ancestral knowledge of wild plants and their virtues into our modern lives. She is also inspired by indigenous medicine and healing from all over the world, from the tribes of the Americas to Japanese energy healing. From spring onwards, she travels through the Alps, particularly in the Vanoise and Meribel mountain ranges, to gather the wild plants that will enable her to make her oils. Her powerful and 100% natural oils are rich in curative properties, and are used in many of Antares Wellness' treatments.

WIMHOF MASTER AKA JIM HOF | SOUND HEALING | REIKI
"Working in the fire and rescue service was my dream job and after making the difficult decision to leave after 12 years after injuring my spine in a car accident. The doctors said that I would need an operation to remove some of my spine which would manage the pain. The injury was affecting my life and somedays I couldn’t walk – this is where my journey started in looking for alternative ways to heal.
I started regular yoga classes and very soon I regained strength, mobility and reduced pain. It was actually in the yoga studio that I saw a leaflet for Reiki and became very curious in how I could tap into my own healing potential. Collectively it has taken my own healing ability and what I can offer to a whole new level which in fact has recently helped me fight cancer for the 2nd time. Understanding Cancer triggers, how to prevent, slow down, and potentially cure with lifestyle and alternative healing methods has become a big area of interest for me and Natalie - we continue to research, experience and explore ways to help ourselves and others live at optimal health in this modern world.
And guess what… I no longer need the spinal operation!"
"I have a diploma in traditional Chinese medicine since 1997, I have made 3 stays in China to improve my knowledge. I have a diploma in traditional Thai massage, at the Wat Pho temple in Bangkok, and I also practice the Dr Bach method and its famous flowers. I worked for 15 seasons in a 4 star hotel in Courchevel, then I went to Italy for 5 years to join Dr Chenot's team in the 5 star "Palace" in Merano. Since 2017 I have been using a machine based on the "Oberon-Metatron" method invented by Soviet engineers at the time of the space conquest. This device is based on quantum physics, we make a vibratory analysis of each organ and each tissue, in order to find and correct energetic imbalances. It is a tool for prevention! And a perfect complement to Chinese medicine, which speaks of the yin-yang balance, both physiological and emotional."
