Symmetry Therapeutic Massage Spa sprang from the dream of two friends and fellow massage therapists who sought to demonstrate that massage could be used to better physical health. They started small, with a one-room office behind a Pilates studio. Soon, however, they found themselves juggling more appointments than they could handle. Just two years later, they moved into a sprawling new sports-partnered studio, creating a new source of relief for athletes whose massages previously consisted of lying in the middle of the turf during a game.
Today, Symmetry's founding pair leads 30 other licensed therapists, each with her own unique background and specialty. These practitioners treat clients with more than a dozen massage modalities, including neuromuscular massage, which relies on static pressure to relieve area-specific pain, and Thai Yoga. Services such as soothing steam therapy and invigorating dry body-brushing augment the offerings.
During the studio's semi-private workshops, including couples' workshops, the therapists teach clients how to perform their massage techniques at home. This allows clients to connect with their partners during couples massages whenever they have some private time at home or a long wait in a grocery-store line together.
Cashmere Salon and Day Spa refers to its clients as the Cashmere family, a fitting pseudonym both because of the facility's welcoming atmosphere and because the beauty haven is arguably large enough to actually be a second home. From within a spacious interior, staff members perform almost every traditional beautifying service known to the industry. In addition to a selection of essential hair, nail, and skin services, the seemingly unending menu includes specialized treatments such as extensions, keratin treatments, brow tinting, and individual lash extensions, as well as more long-term fixes such as laser hair removal and nonsurgical face-lifts. The spa even offers injectables such as Dysport, Botox, and Juvéderm for those who want to turn back the hands of time instead of trying to slow them down with a secret handshake.
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.
Derma Home's expert aestheticians pamper faces roughened by harsh winter winds and nurse them back to optimal human-husk health. The spring facial ($80) preps visages for their vernal debut, kicking off with a liquid-enzyme solution that immediately evicts dead skin cells from their dermal dens. A second, pineapple-cream enzyme, goes to work polishing and smoothing the newly purged pores, while a third enzyme uses the potent powers of multiple fruits and veggies to administer a healthy dose of antioxidants, converting the face into the most beauteous of ambrosia salads.
New Face & Figures Day Spa helps clients achieve their personal beauty goals, ushering the less appealing characteristics of nature to the door. With a solid foundation in science and medicine, the med spa presents guests with a menu full of innovative treatments, as well as massages and tanning solutions. Their DaVinci Laser Teeth Whitening system, for example, uses an LED-activated gel to make people feel better about their smiles without having to draw pretty flowers on every individual tooth, and Botox and Juv?derm injections temporarily turn back the hands of time by softening the appearance of crow's feet and frown lines.
Many of New Face & Figures' other services center around supporting those who are on a mission to lose weight. Clients can participate in a holistic weight-loss program, try the PowerPlate Total Body Vibration, or get a jump-start with fat burner injections.
Elements Massage Southglenn's staff is always in motion?last year alone they performed more than 3,800 treatments. The center's popularity is thanks in part to a system of matching clients to practitioners based on each person's unique needs and each therapist's specialties. Sessions are customized even further by a four-level pressure system, which ranges from a light, relaxing 1 to a deep 4 that incorporates trigger-point techniques. Not only do Elements' therapists perform treatments in the spa, they also come to workplaces to perform chair massages on stressed employees or desk chairs weary from seating so many important CEOs.
