Three Graces Spa offers spa services that center around wellness and beauty, including body bronzing, waxing, massage therapy, and skincare. In the Helios body-bronzing studio, airbrush technicians use UV-free South Seas spray-tanning solutions to deliver color in just a few minutes. A few steps away in the spa’s private rooms, licensed massage therapists untie double knots in the muscles with deep-tissue, Swedish, and aromatherapy massages. Finally, there's the All About Your Face aesthetics lounge, where expert beautifiers dole out custom facials and skincare services.
No two treatments performed at NoCo Massage are the same. Every time someone lays down on the table, the massage therapist hones in on the specific muscles that are vexing that client. The therapist kicks off the pampering by chatting with guests and drawing up a customized kneading plan that draws on a wide range of modalities. Swedish techniques dole out gentle all-over pressure with long, flowing strokes. At the other end of the pressure spectrum, deep-tissue massage and shiatsu burrow down into muscle structures in localized areas to root out knots and pieces of swallowed chewing gum. To amp up the endorphins, NoCo kicks in a helping of hot basalt stones or essential oils at no extra charge.
To secure its position as the best massage clinic of 2010, Massage Specialist presented Boulder Weekly with a suite of services that went beyond the basics. The clinic's therapists practice more than 10 massage styles including classic modalities (e.g., Swedish, deep tissue, and sports) as well as uncommon therapies (e.g., manual lymphatic drainage, infant massage, and shiatsu). Most treatments incorporate the clinic's signature water-dispersible oils and lotions that do not stain clothing but may dissolve witches. They prep for appointments by draping treatment beds with fresh, clean linens, and educating guests on therapies that suit their personal ailments. Aside from massage therapy, the clinic offers spinal adjustments, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and herbal consultations.
Allied Healthcare Services' chiropractors, nutritionists, and soft-tissue and yoga therapists pool their talents to alleviate patients' ailments and bolster their health without resorting to invasive treatments. A chiropractic duo, Joshua Vickers and Adam Helie rehabilitate spines with hands-on realignment techniques and thorough back-health evaluations before releasing them back into the wild. Certified as a yoga therapist through the Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and Ayurveda, Carolyn Midland aids clients in easing their mental stresses and loosening their muscles through stretches and poses. Greg Gillette helps patients improve their energy and health with nourishment counseling services designed to meet individual needs.
Discover Health & Wellness's staff of chiropractors and massage therapists is dedicated to boosting clients’ overall well-being by building relationships and facilitating education. Initial consultations and noninvasive tests help discover undetected nerve damage or vertebrae playing musical chairs, allowing doctors to adjust spines and therapists to massage muscles with technical precision. The doctors themselves can vouch for the efficacy of chiropractic care. As a young man, Doctor of Chiropractic Cameron Hall worked on ski patrol. As he explains in his bio video, skiing for 10 hours a day took a hard-hitting toll on his back and knees, and nearly laid him low. Happily, a chiropractor on staff set his spine straight, saving him from a life bereft of his favorite hobbies, including rock climbing and river rafting. The experience inspired him to become a chiropractor.
