Kiddie Mia's Family Fun Center entertains children of all ages in two joy-filled facilities. High ceilings loom jealously above the bright blue floors where games twinkle happily. One building houses the center's coin-operated arcade, which rewards youngsters with tickets that, unlike an armored piñata, actually yield prizes. Alongside the redemption games, families can quell appetites with pizzas, burgers, and a spaghetti buffet, all awaiting charged up maws at the onsite snack bar. In the adjacent all-you-can-play game room, dozens of kiddie rides occupy young children, who can scamper between Disney-themed attractions such as Mickey's truck and Barney's tractor as parents shout parallel-parking instructions from nearby red and blue picnic tables. Older kids can blast computerized foes on a number of arcade games or coordinate hands and eyes with turns at basketball hoops or air-hockey tables.
Tucked within the tree-dappled slopes of the Rocky Mountains and located about an hour from four world-class ski-resorts, Eagle Lodge & Suites offers placid accommodations for powder-surfers. Each hospitable suite squeezes out stressors with rejuvenating beds and welcoming living areas. Ramblers can stock up on ski fuel or construct pancake snowboards with the lodge's complimentary hot breakfast buffet, or stretch-out muscles for an upcoming arm-wrestling tournament against local antelope with a morning pass through the on-site Eagle Athletic Club, which supplies lodgers with weight, cardio, and resistance equipment, a sauna, and a 50-foot lap pool. Though not included with the Groupon, excursionists looking to explore the surrounding hills can hop a spot on the lodge's shuttle system, which runs snow-seekers to the lifts at Vail and Beaver Creek without the risks of bird strike associated with traditional slingshot travel ($65 per person, one-way).
Inner Awakening Healing Center strives to purify the body through holistic healing, energy medicine, and detoxification treatments. Colon hydrotherapy is an intestinal irrigation treatment that flushes out toxins and the boluses they rode in on. Following your initial health consultation, several warm, pure-water passes administered by an experienced hydrotherapist cleanse more deeply than conventional enemas. With FDA certified equipment and massage techniques, intestinal walls are stripped of the childish crayon doodles of clinging ne'er-do-wells. Repeat visits are recommended, but clients who undergo the 90-minute process have reported improved digestion, increased energy and well being, and a greater appreciation for local carnival rides.
By massaging different parts of just the feet during reflexology treatments, the therapists at Oriental Foot Massage Bar hope to manipulate the rest of the body. They believe that our feet have dozens of reflex zones that correspond to different parts of the body—from the eyes to the kidneys to the knees—and they apply specific patterns of pressure to improve poor digestion, soothe muscle aches, and even clear up skin problems.
Massage therapists also tackle tension in the rest of the body during classic Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and acupressure massages. To soothe extra tense muscles, they place heated basalt stones or retired hot potatoes onto the problem area.
Dr. Morello first experienced chiropractic care as a patient. During an early sports career that sequenced seasons of soccer, baseball, and basketball, he became accustomed to relying on chiropractors for relief from the resultant pains and musculoskeletal injuries. Inspired by these treatments and his love for sports and sports medicine, Dr. Morello earned an undergraduate degree in biology and eventually graduated from Palmer West Chiropractic.
Today, sports are no longer Dr. Morello's sole driving force. Over time, he learned how chiropractic care—when coupled with proper nutrition and bionic limb replacement—can contribute to holistic well-being. He now shares this with patients while helping relieve joint pain and muscular stress with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massages.
In addition to a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, Alliance Chiropractic’s Dr. Isero shares an athletic background with the rest of the practice. Accordingly, he has a personal understanding of the ways in which injury or tension can hinder motion. At his office—where a “no-wait” policy ensures that appointments start precisely on time—the doctor treats sports injuries and other ailments by readjusting spines, decompressing herniated discs, and massaging sore muscles and tissue. Beyond the wooden floors and black-and-white photos in the lobby, spacious treatment rooms create a sense of relaxation and let spines stretch out to their average full length.
