5 Reasons to Book a Massage during a Ski Holiday

Massage is an excellent solution to aches and pains created on Morzine’s ski slopes. Whether you are a beginner, annual skier or seasoned pro, skiing is one of the best ways to enjoy winter. It’s now just under 50 days until the lifts open here in the Portes du Soleil and we are definitely getting excited for winter!

After a day on the mountain it’s not uncommon to get back to your More Mountain afternoon tea with tired legs – especially on those epic powder days!! I’m Martha, Martha Perry Massage Therapy I’ve been in the mountains since 2013 and know all too well the strains and pains you can get from mountain sports. As a mountain lover, I understand how frustrating an injury can be, especially on those blue sky days!

Often, ignoring small problems can lead to bigger issues. There’s a quote that says ‘Listen to your body when it whispers and you won’t hear it scream’. This resonates strongly with winter mountain sports and is a motto we should definitely live by! Skiing and snowboarding uses muscles that you might not use in day-to-day life. Massage can help these muscles recover, meaning you’re back on the slopes faster. An apres-ski massage is an essential and your body will definitely thank you for it!
