The Best Massages to Soothe Sore Ski Muscles
Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage allows you to relax and ease localized pain and tension. It’s highly effective at releasing knots and adhesions that are causing pain, tightness, or limited range of motion. Using firm pressure, various muscle-release techniques, and slow strokes to reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue, your therapist can adjust the deep pressure applied to your comfort level.
We can also incorporate sports therapy treatments tailored to your lower back, legs, and feet.
Your therapist will use a combination of techniques to help ease pain, improve flexibility, and prevent injury.
A classic Swedish massage is a great follow up to a long day on the slopes. This soothing and gentle massage uses long, flowing strokes and kneading massage techniques to release tension and promote relaxation in addition to increasing circulation. It’s perfect for skiers who are feeling overall soreness and want to unwind. Best of all, a Swedish massage can help speed up recovery time and reduce the risk of injury.
Hot Stone Massage
For a truly luxurious experience, try a hot stone massage which can work wonders for sore ski muscles, as the heat helps to increase blood flow and reduce tension. Warm, ocean-tumbled stones are placed on specific areas of the body to help warm up and relax the muscles. Your therapist will then apply manual pressure and massage your body for deep relaxation while also providing an exceptional healing experience.
All of our massages can also be enhanced with additional specialized therapies. These include:
- Altitude Therapy to relieve altitude discomfort by providing oxygen supplements that give the body what it needs to recover during your time in the mountains.
- Sore Muscle Therapy targets bruising, swelling, and discomfort by releasing tension and pain from ski-sore muscles and stiff joints.
