If the body is an orchestra made up of many systems performing together harmoniously, then the staffers at BoulderBodyworks strive to be conductors who ensure each instrument section plays its part the best of its ability. Fueled by this total-body approach, the team aims to help clients achieve natural homeostatic balance through exercise, massage therapy, and neuromuscular science. Working as a network, they combine their many certifications and experiences—be it 30 years working as a Pilates instructor or receiving an education from the Hendrickson Method Institute—to help clients treat their whole being. They host small-group Pilates classes, which can potentially aid in injury recovery and chronic pain management as well as physical fitness, and received Best Pilates Studio from the Boulder Weekly's Best of Boulder 2010 and 2011. Boulder Bodyworks also features yoga classes, banishes tension with eight distinct types of massage, helps bodies recuperate with physical therapy, and summons better postures with the Franklin Method, an approach to training that seeks to correct slouches spawned from working at a desk all day or training to become an Olympian leap-frogger.
We offer deep relaxing massage for tight muscles and stress management. We also offer treatment for clients with chronic pain. We don't offer massage to under 18's unless for a specific acute or chronic condition. A detailed induction process is required for these type of treatments.
Drawing on recent research into brain activity, The Healing Brain's neurofeedback technology monitors brain waves and sends signals to the brain to help it reorganize itself so it can operate more efficiently. Patients are hooked up to sensors, which help detect faulty brain-wave activity as patients look at calming images and listen to soothing music or the sweet whispers of a chatty seashell. By correcting faulty brain-wave activity, the treatment attempts to combat symptoms of dysfunction, addressing such things as mental clarity, emotional control, and anger issues. Suitable for adults and children, the one-hour sessions help patients achieve peak performance and wring the most potential out of their noggins.
"I have candles burning, I have beautiful music playing–it's actually quite remarkable how relaxed a person gets," says Michele Hambach, CHT, describing the atmosphere in her colon-hydrotherapy treatment room at The Boulder Center for Vibrant Health. Warm neck wraps and abdominal massages add to the sense-soothing nature of Michele's colonic sessions, while upgrades such as a hot-towel massage renders more relaxation than cuddling with a terry cloth TV.
In an effort to make colorectal cancer screening a less melancholy experience, Michele offers a pre-colonoscopy treatment that takes the place of swigging a gallon of NuLytely solution and spending the day on the commode.
Led by anti-aging specialist Dr. James Howton, the team at Restore Health Center favors a whole-body apprach to wellness. Instead of simply chasing symptoms with medicine, they approach health challenges in a systematic manner, identifying and addressing underlying issues through treatment plans customized for each patient. Their treatments range from traditional medical interventions to healing modalities including medical weight loss, customized nutritional supplementation, and detoxification. The center also offers bio-identical hormone restoration; in fact, Restore Health Center is one of holistic health advocate Suzanne Somers' recommended clinics in Colorado.
In addition to treating aging insides, Restore Health Center also keeps outsides looking sharp with aesthetic services including Botox, dermal fillers and laser procedures. The clinic's team also reshapes bodies with innovative treatments such as CoolSculpting – a procedure that kills fat cells with the power of targeted cold – and Exilis skin tightening.
The pinup girl coyly lounging in Vogue Laser Clinic’s logo captures the playful attitude of the staff here. They work to create a fun and welcoming environment for women and men alike—a place where anyone can come in and improve their look. Many of their aesthetic treatments—be it hair removal, tattoo removal, or spider-vein removal—are performed with a laser, but the team also specializes in good old-fashioned spa services, such as facials, massages, and waxing below the bloomers. In an effort to spread beauty and confidence throughout the community, Vogue Laser Clinic doles out free wigs to women going through chemotherapy or suffering from other forms of medical hair loss.
