Make the most of our mountain's magic with an "in cabin" full body massage from one of our Licensed Massage Therapists. An hour of massage will leave you relaxed but energized and ready to enjoy your vacation. If both you and your partner choose a massage, our massage therapists can do them simultaneously or sequentially in the same visit. A full body massage is a wonderful way to begin your stay — and to end it.

The basic goal of massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and to increase health and well-being. There are many health benefits to receiving massage therapy on a regular basis — Massage therapy:
  • Relieves stress
  • Encourages relaxation
  • Improves circulation
  • Improves posture
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Helps manage pain
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Improves flexibility
  • Improves breathing
  • Relieves tension headaches
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Decreases depression

Touch is a very important part of human contact. It helps us feel connected and loved by those around us. Both Full Body and Chair Massage applies touch through stroking and kneading of parts of the body to aid circulation and relax the muscles.

There are many forms of massage, with Swedish Massage, developed in Stockholm more than two centuries ago, being the most common and best-known form practiced today. The goal of Swedish Massage is to relax the entire body by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. All StoneWind’s Massage Therapists are trained in Swedish Massage, but in addition to that common form our Message Therapists are also trained in a wide range of therapeutic forms of bodywork including CranioSacral Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Integrated Neuromuscular Massage, and Reiki. Individually or in combination these modalities are very effective in relieving persistent tension and pain in the back, arms, legs, and muscles, as well as providing relief from headaches and jaw pain. So be sure to ask your therapist which of the available modalities would be most beneficial to you.

CranioSacral Massage

CranioSacral Massage is a gentle but therapeutic form of massage that focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. Cranial sacral therapy is applied very gently and subtly so as to restore the natural position of the bones thus decreasing stress from chronic or recent injuries and providing relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (the inflammation of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull) as well as other conditions

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage, similar to Swedish massage, is a specific type of massage therapy that concentrates on applying deeper, firmer pressure to focus on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). By using deep finger pressure and slow firm strokes, deep tissue massage is used to treat a variety of physical ailments including chronic muscle tension. Deep-tissue massage is recommended by many doctors as a treatment option for various medical conditions including scar tissue, nerve pain, and hypertension. The downside: it can be painful during the process.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures in pain sensitive areas of the body. These restrictions and pressures usually do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) thus creating painful conditions that are difficult to impossible to diagnose with the usual methods. MFR involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the damaged Myofascial connective tissue to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles so as to reduce or remove these otherwise difficult and painful conditions.

Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy

Integrated Neuromuscular therapy is also called trigger point myotherapy. The American Academy of Pain Management recognizes this form of massage therapy as an effective treatment for back pain caused by soft tissue injury such as muscle strain. Neuromuscular therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on areas of muscle spasm. The massage therapy pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles, or elbow. Once applied to a muscle spasm, the pressure remains steady for ten to thirty seconds, long enough to allow the spasm dynamics to release.

Reiki

Reiki is a hands-on energy healing modality emerging from the oriental understanding of the role of “qi/chi” (Japanese “ki”) in the maintenance and restoration of health. Reiki originated in Japan in 1924 and was brought to the US in 1936. Since its introduction to the west in 1936 it has spread all over the world with several million practitioners in the US alone. While technically not a massage therapy (there is no tissue manipulation and treatments are done with the client fully clothed), Reiki is a hands-on energy modality that is frequently done in conjunction with all forms of massage therapy. Reiki reduces stress, enduces relaxation, and promotes healing, health, and well being in all who receive it. As a healing modality Reiki is now used and/or recommended in as many as 800 hospitals in the US plus many more world wide.
