One of the things that inspired Jennifer Pejo to become an athletic trainer was the vague medical advice she received after her own sports injuries when she was growing up. She wanted to help others recover more quickly through treatment and rehabilitation and teach them about the healing process along the way.
Over the course of her career, Jennifer has worked with professional and Olympic athletes, discovering that massage therapy provided both healing and pain relief. Today, Jennifer runs Wild Orchid Event Production, LLC, where she calms muscles with a variety of modalities including Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage. You can also opt for hot stone treatments and reflexology, which taps into the body's internal connections through points in the feet to reduce the effects of aches and pains.
The staff at Spa Petite works towards relaxation and aesthetic goals with, among other assets, a degree from the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy, training with essential oils, and decades of reiki experience. Smooth stones soak up warmth, ready to slip across backs during hot-stone massages, and Sherri Duchene prepares batches of imported French wax to remove unwanted hair. While working in the spa, she also draws upon knowledge of supplements, herbs, and aromatherapy to create her own creams and oils free of artificial ingredients, which can irritate skin. Neuromuscular massages and reiki treatments work to stimulate the body's natural healing processes, unlike schoolyard bullies, who target the body’s natural ability to hit itself.
Developed in the early 1920s by Japanese spiritualist Mikao Usui, reiki is a healing art that holds roots in Buddhist practices but is in no way limited to practitioners of a specific religion. Aesthetician Laura Keller embraces the technique?s ancient roots while embracing the treatment?s use of modern technology. Keller?s service menu includes reiki healing and chakra cleansing, and also lists modern facial treatments that take advantage of high-end products from San?tas, Dermalogica, and Image Skincare. At the higher end of her scientific-treatment spectrum, Keller utilizes the Beautiful Image 900 to lend facial regions a smooth, even complexion.
