Sesen Skin Body Wellness takes its name from the ancient Egyptian word for lotus flower?a symbol recognized throughout that culture for its relation to rebirth and beauty. Thousands of years later, the wellness center works to keep this meaning alive by combining a holistic methodology with med-spa-quality equipment. Recognized for its facials by both CBS Local and CityVoter, Founder Stacy Webb's integrated approach has resulted in an impressive service menu that boasts seven chemical peels, six facials, and a full lineup of waxing treatments.
Meanwhile, licensed massage therapist, Jodi Alston, who has also been nationally certified for the past 8 years, performs customized massages tailored to clients' needs. She combines a range of modalities that include Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques. She blends gentle, flowing strokes with targeted deep pressure, aiming to leave clients feeling less pain and more relaxed and balanced.
Twelve years of hands-on spa experience were enough to teach Gregg Gonzales a valuable lesson about his clients: no two are the same. He takes this lesson to heart at Dos Manos Massage Studio, where he draws on his intuition and massage know-how to craft massages that cater to all manner of aches and ailments. Stationed within six private treatment rooms, Gregg and his team of licensed massage therapists integrate modalities such as deep tissue and reflexology; the exact combination of techniques used always depends on their clients’ input. During each massage, the team of therapists welcomes clients to plug their own iPod into a dock beside the heated massage table and slip away to the self-recorded sounds of waves crashing or pigeons being tickled. Complimentary refreshments and a calming relaxation room erase any traces of tension that remain after the session.
When it comes to helping a client make positive adjustments, Changes of Cherry Creek doesn't restrict itself to just one methodology. For more than three decades, the spa has mixed science with holistic care in a manner that puts technology and human understanding on the same team.
On one end of the spa's spectrum, the hands of massage therapists and nail technicians caress achy muscles and embellish fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures. On the other end, the spa turns to computers, or at least experts who can speak in convincing robot voices. That willingness to utilize modern tools leads to the use of toning machines to make skin look younger, as well as lasers to zap away tufts of unwanted hair. The modernity even carries over to the decor—polished chrome coats the chairs, counters, and tables in the lobby.
Guided by a licensed medical director, the team of certified laser technicians at Hellenic Laser Spa helps men and women refine their complexions with an array of skin services. Harnessing noninvasive light waves from diode, yag, and alexandrite lasers, team members prune unwanted body hair, even out pigmentation, alleviate acne, and blast toenail fungus. Radio frequency, infrared light, CO2 fractional, and Botox and Juv?derm injections iron out facial wrinkles that lead to sagging skin, crow's-feet, and being mistaken for a painting of an ancestor. The facility also boasts a team of massage therapists ready to smudge away stress with soothing kneads during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
A massage therapist with a decade of experience in the field, Sean Galaviz soothes clients' sore muscles with massage in several modalities, specializing in deep tissue, trigger point, Swedish, and relaxation massage. Inside Headwaves Salon, these sessions can be enhanced with hot stones and scalp massages for a sweet escape from everyday stress.
