Feet & Calves Massage – improves circulation, relives tension and fatigue from aching calves, feet and ankles getting you ready for another exciting day on skis.

Hot Stone Massage uses special smooth, heated stones – basalt volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat. The heat is deeply relaxing and helps tight muscles release.

Swedish Massage (classic massage) relieves muscle tension and pain, decreases stress, increases blood circulation as well as mental and physical relaxation.

Remedial Massage is a holistic treatment and involves the use of massage and a wide range of diagnostic techniques to treat a condition. Remedial massage can be helpful in treating specific areas of muscle tension caused by stress or injury. The therapy also helps to get the blood flowing to injured tissues to speed up the repair process. Remedial massage can also be used for relaxation and general well-being.

Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries.
