Ali and Garrett may in some regards be total opposites of each other—she owns 75 pairs of high heels, while he longs to only wear the same jeans and T-shirt—but their different views come together when capturing weddings and other special moments. And their clients must agree, as they've been nominated for a 2013 Best of The Knot award.
They use Colorado's natural beauty to their full advantage when shooting photos, showcasing a couple canoodling together in a rowboat on an empty lake while an immense forest of evergreens stands in the background, or letting natural light stream between newlyweds, framing their faces.
Tanya Hauck is a licensed massage therapist, master Reiki practitioner, and certified Reiki master teacher. At Therapeutic Healing Massage, Tanya strives to provide each client with healing treatments tailored to meet their needs, which she assesses in two ways. The first is by conducting an initial interview to gain insight into her clients’ histories, needs, and goals. Tanya specializes in intuitive massage, an approach that entails reading musculature and posture in order to discover the roots of discomfort and figure out which funny bone is stealing jokes. Tanya offers Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, and hot stone massages. Hydrating and detoxifying body wraps are also available, as are spa packages inspired by the earthly elements: earth, wind, water, and firemen.
Refresh Skin Care's name isn't a coincidence. That's because the beauty haven infuses skin with high-quality products from Tao Skin Care and Botanical Science, both of which harness soothing ingredients from the earth to refresh the skin. During services such as facials and microdermabrasions, skin is cleansed, exfoliated, and gently high-fived with nontoxic herbal extracts. And the spa doesn't just refresh skin. It also enhances with waxing, eyelash extensions, and eyelash tinting.
At Therapeutic Hands Massage and Bodywork, licensed massage therapist Summer Mahana views the body as a single, unified entity. This perspective defines her approach to massages: for her, if one part hurts, it all hurts. That’s why she incorporates strokes from nine types of massages and applies them across the entire body. This approach promotes the deeper mind-body connections sought in Eastern techniques while observing Western medicine’s emphasis on blood circulation and wearing a cowboy hat during massages.
After graduating from the Nevada School of Massage Therapy, Jessica Allen’s hands became certified in massage therapy. They now spend their days traversing client’s backs, arms, and legs in search of gnarled muscles and achy areas. They form gentle stokes during Swedish massages and grasp hot basalt stones to help jump-start relaxation. Jessica’s hands also fill themselves with brown sugar or sea salt scrubs to exfoliate skin or decorate cookies in between appointments.
