Anew Massage At Grand Targhee Resort

Welcome to Anew Massage, located at Grand Targhee Resort in Alta, Wyoming. Anew Massage specializes in Sports and Therapeutic Massage, while providing a full range of modalities for everyone from those simply in need of relaxation, to the most extreme athletes, or clients with injuries and health conditions. The key to an outstanding massage is a great practitioner and a quality assessment, which all begins with listening to the client and tailoring the massage to their needs.  At Anew Massage, the goal is to not only relax the body and relieve the symptoms, but to also eliminate the cause.

Massage has great benefits both before and after skiing. Having a pre-ski massage reduces stress, improves circulation, and increases muscle and tendon elasticity, all of which can help to enhance performance on the mountain and reduce chance of injury. After a full day of skiing or riding, massage helps to relieve soreness by ridding the muscles of lactic acid buildup. In addition, for those who have sustained an injury, massage can help to promote a quick recovery and have you feeling renewed for your next day on the hill.

Modalities & Rates
The following are the modalities that we offer and the benefits that they can provide.

Neuromuscular Therapy:
The utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system. In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction.

Neuromuscular Therapy will be used to address five elements that cause pain: Ischemia, Trigger Points, Nerve Compression or Entrapment, Postural Distortion, Biomechanical Dysfunction

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) and Strengthening:
Aaron L. Matte’s method of muscle and fascia release is founded on the concept of controlling the body’s stretch reflexes. The A.I.S. method myofascial release technique uses active movement of the muscle on the opposite side of the muscle being stretched. Using an 3-4 second repeated stretch has proven to be the key in avoiding contraction of the muscles and connective tissue is being stretched.

Sports Massage:
Whether it is a day on the slopes, hiking in the mountains or competing in another sport. Sports massage can range from a combination of pre/post event massages, maintenance massage and or rehabilitation massage. It can reduce the chance of injury, through proper stretching and event preparation, and through deep tissue massage; improve range of motion and muscle flexibility, resulting in improved power and performance; shorten recovery time between workouts; maximize the supply of nutrients and oxygen through increased blood flow; enhance elimination of metabolic by-products of exercise.

Orthopedic Injury and Rehabilitation:
The part of sports massage that focuses on targeting the underlying cause of your pain and treat the effects of your injury. By using muscular testing it helps identify tendentious, sprains, strains and tears. Along with deep cross fiber friction, it may involve a form of a rehabilitation program.

Deep Tissue Massage:
A type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

Therapeutic Massage:
An intuitive and integrative massage drawing from a range of techniques - the perfect choice for a full body massage. Techniques include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release. This massage is very relaxing, helps relieve pain, is deep and specific where needed.

Swedish Massage:
This uses five basic movements to increase circulation and remove toxins from the muscles. Always working towards the heart, the massage incorporates these techniques into a flowing massage session that leaves the client physically and emotionally relaxed.

Hot Stone:
A specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones to massage the muscles. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps increase the circulation to speed up the recovery of sore muscles.


Works with the soft-tissue muscular system to change the nervous system to treat the cause of the problem. Muscles are treated together to clear the entire peripheral nervous system pathway. By focusing on the nervous system while working on the muscular system it alleviates pain, restores movement and function and improves posture.

Structural Muscular Balancing:
The three corrective techniques most often used in Structural Muscular Balancing are position release, directional massage, and deep pressure. The aim of SMB is to release tension in the structural muscles and reset the neuromuscular reflexes that perpetuate tension, spasms and the associated pain.
