Located within the Goldminer's Daughter Ski Resort, the aestheticians at Goldminer's Daughter Spa provide relief from winter's moisture-sapping dry air. They use organic ingredients in their facials, and plenty of plant-based compounds in their body treatments as well, such as their blueberry detoxifying wrap. Should a trip down the slopes incur any muscle soreness, they also have therapists on-hand to relieve pain and tension with four modalities of massage.
As the husband-and-wife team behind Breathe Massage & Bodywork, Randy and Nina draw on two decades of combined massage experience to heal their clients with traditional and energy-focused techniques. Since they have worked in spas as well as chiropractic offices, their treatments tend to be both physically beneficial and as relaxing as a warm bath in chicken noodle soup. Among their specialty modalities, trigger-point therapy applies alternating pressures to relieve tension, and deep-tissue massage draws out toxins with firm strokes and friction. To experience a more holistic approach, clients can try cranial-sacral therapy or a reiki session; both alternative techniques work to calm the nerves and put the mind at peace.
Bernice Andersen, master aesthetician and owner of Beaux Skin and Wellness at Sleepy Ridge, oversees a team of experience technicians dedicated to beautifying their clients. The studio?s menu of services includes PureSculpt face and body treatments, Ice Facials with organic clay, and TruShape body-contouring treatments and age-fighting dermal fillers. Warm wax banishes unwanted fuzz from faces, bikini areas, and self-conscious peaches, whereas lash extensions add temporary length and flutter to eyelids. They also provide a 1, 3, or 5 day complete wellness retreat, which includes infrared body detoxifying wraps, fresh organic juice, a personal training session and post well care packs for optimum performance.
At A Tree Of Life Massage, licensed massage therapists blend an extensive menu of techniques into custom experiences to extinguish client-specific aches and pains. Therapists draw upon classic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques for every session, combining long strokes and gentle kneading to improve a client's circulation, or focusing pressure on key points along the physique to erode internal toxin buildup. Threads of less mainstream modes also weave into relaxation sessions; therapists can harmonize discordant zones in the body by stimulating reflex points in the feet, or can wake up tired tendons with heated basalt stones and a quadruple shot of espresso. Clients can unwind alone in plush, minimalist rooms, or share their hearts and massage areas with a significant other during a romantic couples session, complete with aromatherapy.
All too often, a massage studio can feel like a revolving door operation, shuffling clients in and out as quickly as possible. Not at Earth Angels Massage & Bodywork. Licensed massage therapist Erika Martin begins each session with an in-depth consultation to discuss medical history and sideline tension at its source. She then blends such techniques as Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to promote relaxation and stimulate the immune system. Therapeutic hot stones are also available.
