Sports massage/massage therapy/deep tissue massage is a safe and effective way of working into the muscles and soft tissues. Hands on therapy either with oil on the skin or dry through clothing. Massage therapy uses a mix of techniques working methodically into the muscles and is wonderfully relaxing and very effective as pain relief. It can aid recovery and is great for injury prevention and maintenance to help you feel good for your job, your sport, during pregnancy or just for relaxation. Our therapists are trained in different techniques so no two sessions will be exactly the same. We don't really do 'set routines' here at Mountain Massage Co. We would much rather ask you what you want from the treatment and work accordingly. Hazel Clark, Louis Mackay and James Clark are trained in Sports Massage & Massage Therapy. See our Therapist section for more details.
