Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
Credentialed massage therapists and aestheticians at Refresh Skin Care & Laser imbue massage, facial, and tanning services with aromatherapy and botanical skincare products. Lavender-scented body scrubs and hydrating algae body masks leave skin as soft and supple as a newborn pillow, and custom chemical peels deeply exfoliate epidermises. In addition, advanced light-based techniques may be applied to whiten teeth and manage unwanted hair without organizing razors into unwieldy bureaucracies. Laser technicians also help fight the aging process with services such as laser hair removal and photofacials.
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.
Members of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals organization, the staff at Pure Peace Massage provide relief from pain and stress. They're schooled in many types of massage, including Swedish, prenatal, and reflexology, and make it a priority to listen to each client's complaints and preferences before beginning a session.
While rocks serve many purposes—eco-friendly paperweight, climbing wall, letter opener—you probably never thought they could help alleviate your chronic back pain. In fact, memories of the rocky bedding on your last camping trip suggest that stones may have contributed to the problem in the first place. Change your perspective on pebbles with today’s Groupon, which gets you a hot-stone massage at Elements Therapeutic Massage for $55—that's half off the $110 value.
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.
