Take a sports massage and improve ski performance

Posted 2nd March 2018

SB Ski’s massage therapy service offers excellent sports and therapeutic massage treatments

The benefits of sports massage therapies are well documented as performance aids. What professional sportsperson doesn’t use deep tissue massage as part of a regular training routine. However this doesn’t mean you need to be a top athlete to benefit.

Steph, SB Ski’s well-qualified resident sports therapist at the Hotel Chalet d’Antoine offers a range of sports massages, including pre-ski, deep-tissue and clinical sports massage. These vital treatments can help to prevent injury, alleviate pain, treat certain injuries, or bring relief to tired muscles. Alternatively more relaxing and therapeutic massage treatments are available – great for mind, body and soul.

A recent article on the benefits of massage (Massage Therapy UK) provides lots of useful information. In it, Sian Brice, GB and Olympic tri-athlete, rates sports massage as being a major key to success in achieving her goals.

Many athletes, on all levels, now use massage therapies because they increase joint mobility, circulation and strength. As a result this supports training and ups performance levels.

“Our massage service is very popular with guests – and our own professional instructor team who need to maintain full fitness,” says SB Ski’s Simon Butler. “Many of our guests lead busy and sometimes more sedentary lifestyles. Consequently they ask a lot of their bodies on a ski holiday. Therefore the massage therapies we offer really help our guests to get the most from their precious time on snow.”

Bookings can be made in the resort. Or please pre-book through the UK Office to avoid disappointment.
