Like signatures and golf swings, skin types are unique to each individual, which is why the specialists at Colorado Massage Therapy and Skin Care begin each facial treatment with a skin analysis to determine individual needs. After examining pores and gently removing week-old milk moustaches, the aestheticians select masks and treatments designed by Sanitas—a company committed to cleansing and nourishing skin without the use of parabens or unnatural preservatives. In addition to brightening skin and unburdening pores, the specialists perform specialty massages to address even deeper issues. Their knowledge of Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, and trigger-point modalities allows them to help relieve tension and heal injuries.
Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
Lavender Medical & Beauty Spa is a comprehensive nexus of beauty and well-being where facials, massage, and injectables meet nail- and haircare. Spray tanning and teeth whitening ensure that no cosmetic stone is left unturned, and specialty services introduce bodies to ancient, oft unheard-of treatments, such as a Russian banya—a detoxifying, herb-infused sauna designed to open the pores and their mail while ridding bodies of excess salt and lactic acid. Sound-therapy pedicure chairs use a vibrational flow of music to massage backs and lull tired tendons to sleep as whirlpools maintained according to strict hygiene policies swaddle and soften hard-working feet.
Spend some quality time not talking to your sweetie with the Be My Valentine special, which includes a couple's massage, bottle of wine, and complimentary rose ($199) in Beau Visage's handsome and spacious couple's massage room. Facial fans can try out a Fountain of Youth hydrating facial ($125) or an Under the Sea Facial ($125) with seaweed, cultivated from France's Bethany Coast, that contains 1,000 times more vitamins and minerals than anything grown in soil. Those looking to infiltrate high school to write the exposé that will seal their journalistic futures can peel away layers of dead face skin with a glycolic peel ($50) or a medical-grade peel ($120–$160). If you're more in the mood for a massage, a 90-minute European hot-stone therapy session ($120) will increase your relaxation and improve your blood flow with the penetrating heat of smooth basalt rocks. You can also cocoon yourself with a Slender Quest Body Wrap ($95) and emerge a firm, toned, sexy butterfly. Dudes, meanwhile, can enjoy being King for a Day (one of the Valentine's Day specials) with a gentlemen's facial and a sandalwood aromatherapy massage ($129). Beau Visage also offers airbrush tanning, microdermabrasion, men's body services, photorejuvenation, and more.

As an added touch, every massage includes complimentary aromatherapy, a short hot-stone session, and removal of any back-clinging scorpions for no charge.
