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.
Scents of lavender, peppermint, and wild orange infuse each visit to Natural Therapeutics, an alternative wellness center that tames tension with a soothing blend of massage strokes and doTerra essential oils.

The studio’s signature service is the AromaTouch integrative massage, during which the therapist applies essential oils to the body’s energy pathways, calling upon their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help to calm the nervous system and detoxify the body. The center also stocks the full line of doTerra products, allowing clients to carry the therapeutic-grade essences home with them for proud display in their own home oil cellar.
