Nestled in the scenic foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Bella Vi reinvigorates wearied extremities and faces via skillful aestheticians armed with aromatic organic skincare products.During the Pure Results facial, epidermis experts thoroughly cleanse visages before applying a rehydrating mask to slake thirsty pores and leave facial facades feeling fresh and healthy. The therapeutic process ends with a relaxing upper-body massage for necks, scalps, and shoulder parrots, as well as a limb-limbering massage for arms and hands. A skin-polishing treatment then further smooths facial features, and a hand and foot exfoliation removes extremities' rough edges before quenching their thirst with a healthy dose of moisturizer.
As children, we often fantasize about opening a business with our best friend. As adults, we rarely follow through with our childhood dreams. But there are always exceptions. Amanda Dani Hernandez and Brittany Ann McMullen, friends since elementary school, made their joint spa-owning dream come true. After both attended beauty school, the ladies polished their skills while working together at a spa in Breckenridge. A few years later, they decided to combine their talents and launch Colorado Mountain Day Spa in their hometown.
Before officially opening their spa's doors in 2011, Amanda and Brittany carefully designed the space with a unified mountain theme. Each of the four treatment rooms embodies the essence of one season, and the Garden of the Gods–themed bathroom features floral accents and iconic red rocks. While enjoying luxurious spa services such as facials, massages, and body wraps, clients also relish soothing spa sounds ranging from flowing rivers to birds politely requesting that worms come to the table for dinner.
The friendly technicians at Serenity Springs Day Spa and Salon wield the latest in beauty brands while showcasing their expansive skills in hair, skin, nail, and massage services. Aestheticians rejuvenate visages with Dermalogica facials, glo therapeutics chemical peels, and diamond-tip microdermabrasions, which gently peel away layers of aging skin and crude messages graffitied by Father Time. Hairstylists at the Loreal Professional studio tame rebellious manes with Mythic Oil deep conditioning treatments and transform current coifs with So Cap hair extensions. Those looking for a day of indulgence can partake in any of Serenity Springs Day Spa and Salon's five spa packages, each designed to evoke a sense of calm while luring out one's inner beauty.
In the comforts of a quaint and relaxing atmosphere, the spa professionals at Muse Spa & Wellness pamper bodies from head to toe. Massage therapists soothe sore muscles through various modalities, including deep-tissue, Swedish, and neuromuscular massage. Skin treatments such as anti-aging facials and chemical peels rejuvenate tired complexions, and total-body treatments range from waxing services and airbrush tanning to paraffin body wraps designed to draw out toxins and moisturize skin until it glistens like a brand-new wheel of gouda.
During the spa mani-pedi, Ofelia’s Salon & Spa’s crack squad of nail technicians sculpt unruly talons and corral wild cuticles in a flurry of precision clips and buffs. A callus softener accosts rough, flaky patches before a file sloughs off extraneous skin cells. Extremities then bathe in a salt scrub before slipping into a moisture mask that sinks into the skin and rinses clean, leaving hands and feet as velvety soft as a throw pillow made from Barry White’s voice. Meanwhile, a skilled aesthetician massages legs and feet from the knee down, untying tendon knots and relaxing tense muscles. A base coat and two layers of the patron’s choice of polish set up nails for colorful struts through the yellow pages.
The staff of Colorado Wellness Spa strives to make their guests feel, quite literally, at home. Their intimate spa, characterized by a warm colors, oriental rugs, and antique wood and leather furniture, is located inside a converted 1891 Victorian home. In a lounge separated by French doors, visitors relax with complimentary snacks and mugs of organic blended teas. On a furnished outdoor patio, they recline on lounge chairs and take dips into a hot tub. The spa's staff members also provide robes, towels, and sandals upon request to induce the calming sensations of falling asleep in a laundry hamper.
The spa's wealth of fruit and herb-inspired treatments put guests even more at ease. Licensed therapists perform nine types of massage such as custom, deep-tissue, and hot stone, along with a signature sagebrush aromatherapy massage, which blends traditional Eastern and Native American healing techniques. Using aromatic essential oils and holistic skin-care products, therapists also drape clients in green tea herbal body wraps, massage their skin with facials, and dip their feet into copper bowls during orange-coconut pedicures. Though small, many of the spa's rooms are designed for side-by-side services such as massages, body treatments, facials, and mani-pedis.
