Since graduating from Collinson Massage School in 2006, Paulette Provost has continued refining her massage skills. Paulette customizes each massage for her clients' specific needs. She offers several massage styles, including Swedish, trigger point, myofascial release, and hot stone, the last of which soothes muscles with warm volcanic basalt stones, leaving customers relaxed and refreshed.
Samoa Massage is the dedicated massage center of Collinson Chiropractic Clinic. As such, the therapists calibrate pressures specifically to soothe stressed and sore muscles. Deep-tissue and trigger-point-therapy massages hunt down embedded muscle knots that fester deep inside soft tissue, and Swedish massage strokes travel across entire bodies, dealing light and medium pressure in order to promote relaxation.
The licensed massage therapists at Fuji Body Works rewire achy muscle circuit boards with healing bodywork. Guests can request flowing Swedish strokes to promote deep relaxation, or access deeper muscles––or fascia––with more intensive deep-tissue pressure. The spa also offers a specialty aromatherapy sauna, which draws on the power of heat to help clients detoxify and festively plump snowmen lose weight.
Barbara and Clint, the licensed massage therapist and aesthetician at Hang Zen, love to pamper their clients. When spa-goers walk through the door, refreshments are provided and a custom aromatherapy session begins, enhancing a hot-stone massage, facial, or wax. Clients can also refine their complexions with microdermabrasions, full-body salt scrubs, or mud wraps at this relaxing, full-service day spa.
As children, we often fantasize about opening a business with our best friend. As adults, we rarely follow through with our childhood dreams. But there are always exceptions. Amanda Dani Hernandez and Brittany Ann McMullen, friends since elementary school, made their joint spa-owning dream come true. After both attended beauty school, the ladies polished their skills while working together at a spa in Breckenridge. A few years later, they decided to combine their talents and launch Colorado Mountain Day Spa in their hometown.
Before officially opening their spa's doors in 2011, Amanda and Brittany carefully designed the space with a unified mountain theme. Each of the four treatment rooms embodies the essence of one season, and the Garden of the Gods–themed bathroom features floral accents and iconic red rocks. While enjoying luxurious spa services such as facials, massages, and body wraps, clients also relish soothing spa sounds ranging from flowing rivers to birds politely requesting that worms come to the table for dinner.
Framed paintings of sun-soaked landscapes bedeck the walls at Studio 27, where qualified staff strives to keep patrons comfortable during med-spa services or pampering sessions for their hair or nails. Sessions begin with one-on-one consultations during which clients share their goals for the treatment and staff shares "Honk if you love beauty" bumper stickers. Owner and registered nurse Michael Renee Bradburry administers all medical treatments, which include injections of brow-smoothing Botox, Juvaderm, and Radiesse. Obagi’s medical line of skincare products augments microdermabrasions and chemical peels administered by aides, and staffers also beautify heads and hands with hair and nail services.
