September 19, 2017,
Hawaii, Lanai, U.S.A.

Situated on Lanai’s southern coast, the AAA Five Diamond Four Seasons Resort Lanai offers a gateway to an unspoiled, exotic paradise.  Guests can explore the 90,000-acre (36,000 hectares) island with a range of land, ocean and air activities, many managed by Four Seasons, such as horseback riding, snorkel sails, clay shooting, tennis, golf and much more.  A new series at the Resort’s Hawanawana Spa features a variety of sports-tailored massages to ensure guests can play well and live well while on their very own Hawaiian adventure.

Sports massage targets and relieves the most repetitive patterns of stress and strain in well-played bodies and helps to prevent injury, prepare the body for peak performance and speed recovery. Shaw Cote, Spa Director at Hawanawana Spa explains, “Our therapists were given intensive, specialised training in a variety of sports massage modalities that are known to enhance recovery and deliver effective relief.  We particularly focus on easing inflammation, improving blood flow and reducing muscle tightness, so our guests can complement their enjoyment taking advantage of our diverse activities with nurturing care to enhance their stay.”

Choose one of the new sports massages to maximise an active lifestyle or to elevate play at the golf course, tennis court, or out on the trails.

Sports Massage Series

  • Lanakila Sports Massage is an ideal, customisable massage for staying active. It is a treatment for all-over muscle relief, blending active and passive stretching with massage.  Whether snorkeling or diving in the ocean, mountain biking on red dirt roads, hiking to panoramic vistas of neighbour islands or simply partaking in an array of activities on the island, the Lanakila (meaning "victory" in Hawaiian) Sports Massage will provide overall relief for joints and muscles while therapists can target specific areas identified by guests.
  • Bounce-Back Sports Massage provides recovery for tennis players by focusing on muscles and joints impacted while playing on the courts.  Key areas of the body include feet, legs, hips, back, arms and shoulders. The Resort’s Tennis Garden features two outdoor Plexipave cushion courts and one Har-Tru green clay court and an array of clinics and programs for guests.
  • Back-in-the-Swing Sport Massage focuses on areas that golfers stress frequently such as the feet, legs, hips, back, torso, shoulders and hands.  The Signature Jack Nicklaus Manele Golf Course affords ocean views on every hole while they five-tee concept challenges novices and experienced golfers alike. Recognised for its playability, many guests will return back to the greens for a completely different experience the following day.
  • Back-in-the-Saddle Sports Massage is perfect for post-horseback rides. Many new or occasional riders often encounter soreness in their thighs, hips and along the back and spine, especially after loping or cantering.  The Ranch at Koele is the jumping off point to explore wooded valleys and trails of an extraordinary upland terrain, home to axis deer, mouflon sheep and turkey. As groups have a maximum of four riders, guests can enjoy more challenging rides based on their abilities for a unique and rewarding excursion.

All Sports Series Massages are available in the following increments: 60 minutes for USD 225; 75 minutes for USD 280; and 90 minutes for USD 335.  Treatments include the use of Yoga Balm, a pharmaceutical balm that made from essential, organic oils to reduce joint and muscle inflammation, improve blood flow and elevate mood.
