The honey papaya scrub envelopes the entire body in a renewing exfoliasperience that neatly boots dead and lazy skin cells from suddenly relaxed persons, allowing true silkiness to shine through unmitigated. After rinsing off in 13-nozzle rain shower rife with seasonal aromas, clients receive a hydrating coat of moisturizer before a pampering massage of the head, neck, shoulders, and back by an experienced massage therapist who secretes shea butter from his or her hands.
The Mindful Body’s staff of trained massage therapists and yoga teachers exhibit expertise in holistic practices, such as Ayurvedic medicine, yoga practice, massage, and hydrotherapy. This is the basis of the wide range of bodywork and lifestyle-education sessions offered at the center. Eight types of massage, including Zen shiatsu, deep tissue, and prenatal, can be enhanced with organic essential oils from Rebecca’s Herbal Apothecary. Nutritional counseling sessions give clients custom menus in line with Ayurvedic principles. In keeping with the spirit of inclusivity, the center is equipped with ample wheelchair accessibility and free parking.
Self-described "girly tomboy" and rock climber Michelle Hale designs and sells jewelry, apparel, and flasks at her studio, where clients bask in a sprawling array of spa and salon services. Tinsel and feathers embellish tresses, smile gems ornament teeth, permanent makeup adds everlasting style, and extensions make lash lines lush. While administering microdermabrasion and facial-peel treatments, technicians relegate dullness to textbooks about 18th-century quill models, and waxing services rid follicles of undesired fuzz. Michelle demonstrates her passion for creating a ubiquitously pleasant customer experience by taking her time with each guest, distinguishing The Beauty Spot’s staff from shopping-mall Santas.
When asked what the name of their spa means, the owners of Cairde Wellness, Inc. point to their Irish ancestry and kindly reply that Cairde (pronounced cor-deh) is the Gaelic word for friends. It’s a fitting name, as the spa’s staff is known for greeting even strangers with a welcoming smile before leading them through an array of soothing services. While prone patrons drift into a rejuvenating slumber, therapists mend stresses and injuries with craniosacral, reflexology, deep-tissue, and Swedish techniques. They also unclog waxy ears with candling treatments and purge bodily toxins with ionic footbaths. Cairde opens the doors to its soothing oasis Tuesday–Friday from 10 a.m. to close, with Saturday appointments available by calling in advance or tattooing intentions on another client's back.
Stationed beside plush massage tables at Essential Bodyworks’ Arvada and Westminster locations, licensed therapists run their nimble fingers across backs, shoulders, and limbs as they perform a litany of massage services. Their therapeutic playbook features standbys such as flowing Swedish and firm deep-tissue strokes alongside more exotic modalities such as hot-stone massage and raindrop therapy. The therapists’ concern for holistic well-being doesn’t stop at joints and muscles; during allergy treatments, they apply river rocks and hot towels to the upper body to clear sinuses before dipping feet into a bubbly bath of cough syrup.:m]]
