To secure its position as the best massage clinic of 2010, Massage Specialist presented Boulder Weekly with a suite of services that went beyond the basics. The clinic's therapists practice more than 10 massage styles including classic modalities (e.g., Swedish, deep tissue, and sports) as well as uncommon therapies (e.g., manual lymphatic drainage, infant massage, and shiatsu). Most treatments incorporate the clinic's signature water-dispersible oils and lotions that do not stain clothing but may dissolve witches. They prep for appointments by draping treatment beds with fresh, clean linens, and educating guests on therapies that suit their personal ailments. Aside from massage therapy, the clinic offers spinal adjustments, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and herbal consultations.
My clients are all whom desire a higher state of health & well-being; athletes from the beginner to professional level, chronic pain sufferers, and those seeking their highest health potential. I take appointments on Mon, Tues, Fri, & 2 Saturdays a month. If you are serious about your health, make your appointment today!

In addition to their advanced training in orthopedic massage, Lightbody’s therapists employ the eco-friendly powers of organic, hypoallergenic, and paraben-free products, including massage oils, lotions, and creams snatched from Mother Nature’s bathroom cabinet.
Within the bright orange walls of Veranda Sun, 18 tanning beds and custom airbrush stations ensure all bodies that enter the award-winning establishment leave sporting a rich, coppery hue.

For a more private tanning experience, the Mystic Tan booth requires only the push of a button to cover physiques in a choice of three shades. Flanking the front desk's sun-inspired mirror and array of leafy plants, a brigade of indoor tanning products, such as California Tan, Designer Skin, and Australian Gold, lines glass shelves to help clients achieve a coveted hue.
