Though Amy Granger and Kathryn Brooks are trained in different areas of holistic healthcare—Amy is a colon hydrotherapist and Kathryn is a reiki master and iridologist—they share a common goal: to support the body’s natural healing processes. At Love and Light Holistic Health Services, they team up to achieve this goal with a number of alternative treatments.
Amy draws on her vast knowledge to flush out toxins lodged in the intestinal tract during colon hydrotherapy treatments. To ensure a comfortable experience, she incorporates relaxing aromatherapy into each hour-long session, and may call on acupressure and energy work as necessary. For another dose of detoxification, guests can sit back and enjoy ionic foot baths. These soothing treatments use electrically charged water to release toxins through the feet, so you’ll never have to ruin another radio by taking it into the bathtub with you.
Look and Feel Good Super Spa—a full-service day spa—lives up to its name with relaxing nail, massage, and skincare services that rejuvenate bodies and minds. Nail techs keep hands and feet chip-free for up to two weeks with CND Shellac, or hydrate digits with nourishing almond oil during traditional mani-pedis. More than 10 massage modalities call on hot towels and stones to help loosen tight muscles, as essential oils infused with the scent of cedarwood, wild thyme, or eucalyptus instill a sense of calm. The staff also dolls up faces with permanent-makeup applications and uses wax to subtract unwanted hairs and solve tricky arithmetic tattoos.
A graduate of the Boulder College of Massage Therapy, Daniele Pimenta-Revord customizes bodywork for clients using a blend of Eastern and traditional massage techniques. Clients can indulge in Swedish and deep-tissue styles or take advantage of Daniele's in-depth study of neuromuscular therapy, Thai massage, and shiatsu. Daniele works one-on-one with individuals suffering from repetitive-motion injuries, such as athletes, musicians, and dashboard hula dancers.
When diet and exercise prove no match for out-of-control curves, Dr. Greg Denzel and his staff want you to know you still have options. Across two locations, including the pristine and cottage-like Windsor office and a Lafayette office, the staff streamlines silhouettes with varying degrees of invasiveness, from hormone-replacement therapy to SmartLipo to SuperSculpt. They also beautify mugs with dermal fillers, and usher in relaxation with massage therapy and the whooshing sound of knotted kinks fleeing the scene.
Aesthetician and owner of Skin(ology) Kimberly Shook relies only on paraben- and preservative-free products to care for her clients’ skin. These products can stimulate new skin cells and nourish existing tissue to help refresh faces during such services as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, facials, and back facials. Shook also improves skin’s appearance by waxing unwanted hair and tinting eyelashes and brows to make facial features stand out more and neck bolts stand out less.
The first things that come to the average adult’s mind when thinking of fun children’s activities are most likely ball pits, bounce houses, video games, and singing animatronic animals. The staffers at Flutter: A Day Spa & Salon for Kids, however, conjure an entirely different list—they think of massages, facials, hair styling sessions, and makeovers. These trained spa professionals customize grown-up beauty services such as these to suit the needs of a younger generation, giving 12–15 year-old boys and girls a unique and fun way to enjoy an afternoon or birthday party.
Tucked inside Salon Republic, the team uses 100% organic ingredients to perform safe nail, skin, and body treatments. A dessert-inspired pedicure refreshes little toes with a fizz soak and foot mask, and a teen facial designed for 12-15 year-old clients aims to control acne with deep cleansings, extractions, and stern threats of detention. The staff can also adorn youngsters with mineral makeup, temporary tattoos, and a range of hairstyles that includes everything from up-dos to mohawks.
