Right off the 16th Street Mall downtown, Sarah's Bodywork Bar is the brainchild of licensed massage therapist Sarah. Specializing in completely custom massages, she believes that regular massage appointments can help reduce stress, relieve chronic pain, and keep clients relaxed and healthy. Whether it's in her downtown studio location or at a client's home, Sarah uses her knowledge of different massage modalities to help soothe aching backs, necks, and shoulders.
At Soma Bodywork, no two massages are the same. Sure, the licensed therapists offer the standard variety of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, but they tailor these techniques to address each client's individual needs. They even look a bit outside the box to pepper their menu with traditional Eastern therapies such as shiatsu and acupressure. As if the sheer number of options weren't enough to bring you back to the downtown studio for more, certain massages are accompanied by warm cookies that can be eaten or placed along the back to soothe tension.
At Salon Foushee and Spa, the multitalented team pampers and transforms clients from head to toe with hair products by Paul Mitchell and skin products by Dermalogica. Customers consult hair designers for a new look. Within the color bar, stylists create traditional hues or highlights that are as modern as the gray- and silver-themed decor. Black-and-white armless chairs set the stage for spa treatments in a separate area designed for total relaxation. Aestheticians analyze complexions inside each skincare suite, and nail artists soothe hands and feet with fragrant moisturizers and heated neck wraps.
When she sees an imbalance in the body, Ginette Slaiher looks through more than one lens. She's a licensed massage therapist, acupuncturist, and has a background in personal training—careers that all come into play at Acussage Wellness. Ginette's primary goal is to restore the body to a balanced, healthy state, and her approach varies according to each client. She might combine massage modalities such as Swedish or deep tissue with a prescription of Chinese herbs, or conduct an acupuncture session to redirect the client's flow of energy. Her more obscure treatments include cupping, moxibustion, and auricular medicine, which stimulates pressure points on the ears to target health concerns elsewhere. These services strive to combat ailments from chronic pain and migraines, to allergies, sinus issues, and coping with stress. Additionally, Ginette practices structural therapy, a school of bodywork that corrects posture and skeletal misalignments.
Spotlights jut from the black ceiling like a constellation of stars, casting a glow on smooth parquet floors, exposed brick, and walls the color of saffron. This is the setting for Luminous by Christi. Though Christi specializes in cuts and colorings with products from Pureology and Redken, clients may also request a keratin straightening treatment or solicit a nail tech for a long-lasting CND Shellac mani-pedi.
The stylists and technicians at Zo Salon & Floatation's downtown Denver salon work hard to make people look and feel their best.
