Sarah Sissons
Sarah Sissons was originally an Occupational therapist and Counsellor then moved to France in 1990 when she set up her company Mountain-Equilibre. Since that time Sarah has trained as a sports therapist, reflexologist and Pilates teacher and uses the varied skills she has learnt over the years to work with clients using holistic treatments.

Sarah qualified as a pilates teacher in 2004, completing her initial training with ‘Body control pilates’. She then trained with the ‘Pilates Institute’ in Switzerland, to enable her to become more fluent in French pilates terminology so she could provide better training for her French clients. Since this time Sarah continues to add to her portfolio of course work and qualifications.

In her spare time, Sarah is a keen skier and telemarker in the winter months. During the summer she loves to cycle and walk and has gained a wide knowledge of the area. She is also involved with lots of local events and is well known and respected throughout the community.

Après avoir suivi la formation et obtenu le diplôme d’ergothérapeute, Sarah a travaillé dans plusieurs hôpitaux de Londres et de ses alentours, en tant que spécialiste des soins psychiatriques. C’est donc tout naturellement que son intérêt pour le bien-être personnel l’a conduite à étendre ses compétences en se formant à un certain nombre de thérapies complémentaires.

Ainsi, après avoir déménagé dans les Alpes françaises il y a 19 ans, Sarah s’est constituée une liste de connaissances thérapeutiques incluant la réflexologie, les massages et la méthode Pilate. Tout en continuant à développer sa formation professionnelle et ses compétences, Sarah propose aujourd’hui ses services à Val d’Isère, à Ste Foy et à Bourg Saint Maurice.
