Guided by a licensed medical director, the team of certified laser technicians at Hellenic Laser Spa helps men and women refine their complexions with an array of skin services. Harnessing noninvasive light waves from diode, yag, and alexandrite lasers, team members prune unwanted body hair, even out pigmentation, alleviate acne, and blast toenail fungus. Radio frequency, infrared light, CO2 fractional, and Botox and Juvéderm injections iron out facial wrinkles that lead to sagging skin, crow's-feet, and being mistaken for a painting of an ancestor. The facility also boasts a team of massage therapists ready to smudge away stress with soothing kneads during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
Elevations Therapeutic Massage's two NCBTMB-certified male massage therapists soothe tense muscles with Swedish and hot-stone massages. Inside the studio’s private treatment rooms, tranquilizing music and the scents of aromatherapy oils drift over trickling fountains, comfy massage beds, and candles lit by the joyous tears of sensitive fireflies. To supplement their massage work, the therapists offer several add-on services including warm bamboo-fusion techniques, deep-tissue kneads, invigorating aromatherapy oils, and massage cupping to stimulate circulation.

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.
With more than 30 years of combined experience that includes work done with doctors, chiropractors, and insurance companies, Sherry and John Larkin have more insight into massage therapy than the staff at some day spas. They, along with the rest of their licensed crew at Colorado Injury Care, use this perspective to customize each session, addressing clients’ health histories, massage goals, and number of times they’ve walked into a wrecking ball. In doing so, they approach massage therapy as a preventative treatment rather than a luxury, aiming to avoid injury and promote relaxed minds.
