Sol Day Spa puts a premium on hassle-free relaxation, allowing clients to book appointments online for massage, waxing, aromatherapy, and a whole host of facial services. In private treatment rooms, the spa?s aestheticians can take the time to analyze skin and perform meticulous skincare services to address problems including acne, fine lines, and sensitivity. Deep cleansing with extractions purifies the skin, and add-ons can address clients? skincare issues. The vitamin C serum heals sensitive or sun-damaged skin, and a lightening treatment fades hyperpigmentation and scars from old blemishes or freckle duels.
Specialty massage types relax bodies with hot stones, deep pressure, or gentle kneading designed to relieve the pain and discomfort of expectant mothers.
Though their backgrounds may differ, Green Leaf Massage Center's certified therapists share a passion for improving their clients? health and wellness through massage. The owner sets a sterling example for her staff to follow, routinely attending continuing-education classes to bolster her therapy skills.
Inside private treatment rooms, the therapists rely on 100% organic lotions to bolster the effectiveness of sports, hot-stone, relaxation, therapeutic, and deep-tissue massages. Aromatherapy add-ons further awaken the senses with the comforting scents of tangerine, lemongrass, sandalwood, and homemade fried chicken.
Stationed beside plush massage tables at Essential Bodyworks’ Arvada and Westminster locations, licensed therapists run their nimble fingers across backs, shoulders, and limbs as they perform a litany of massage services. Their therapeutic playbook features standbys such as flowing Swedish and firm deep-tissue strokes alongside more exotic modalities such as hot-stone massage and raindrop therapy. The therapists’ concern for holistic well-being doesn’t stop at joints and muscles; during allergy treatments, they apply river rocks and hot towels to the upper body to clear sinuses before dipping feet into a bubbly bath of cough syrup.:m]]
Healing Touch Massage Therapy founder Lori Garcia certainly sees the relaxing benefits of her trade. She finds that massage can act as a stress combatant that prevents the onset of disease, or simply, as she puts it, as "a positive ripple effect" that resounds throughout her clients' personal and professional lives. Her private rooms—warm, low-lit spaces with comfortable massage beds and lullaby karaoke—most definitely contribute to the spa's restful vibe.
But Lori is also an advocate of the more acute applications of massage, as she specializes in medical and therapeutic treatment. Upon receiving her certification, she pursued advanced training in 11 different techniques, including oncology massage, reflexology, and applied kinesiology. To that end, she performs 16 types of body treatments at Healing Touch, which range from neuromuscular and trigger-point therapy to hot-stone massage and raindrop technique. She has recently expanded into detoxifying therapies as well (including ionic footbaths and far-infrared body wraps), and will soon be introducing aesthetic services.
The massage therapists, acupuncturists, and reflexologists at A Touch for Wellness administer a roster of treatments designed to address mind, body, and soul. They offer customized facials, for example, to help reveal a softer, more youthful complexion, as well as advanced skincare therapies that yield more dramatic benefits. These include bio-electric rejuvenating treatments, which use microcurrents to tone and lift the muscles in the face, and quantum healing treatments, which use plasma and ionized oxygen to pare down acne and rosacea and increase collagen and elastin. Massage therapists, meanwhile, lift the spirits and shoo away tension with customized bodywork treatments like LaStone or deep-tissue therapy, and can also add indulgent extras like a milk and honey foot scrub, sugar foot scrub, or foot wrap made of delicious bacon.
The Thin Spa's staff has a two-pronged approach to enhancing their clients' lives. First, they help them reduce fat and tighten skin with ultrasonic cavitation and radio-frequency treatments, which are more high-tech than building a thinner-looking robot clone. Alternatively, clients relax under a range of soothing massages, including Swedish and more in-depth myofascial-release modalities.
