The staff at Metta Wellness Center believes that, in order to fully heal their patients, they must heal them as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. The center’s tranquil confines help accomplish this goal while staff perform treatments influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western therapies. During a traditional Thai massage, the therapist combines muscle compression, acupressure, and yoga-like body manipulations to energize patients without switching their vitamins with espresso beans. They also offer tropical hot-stone massages, signature body scrubs and wraps, herbal body wraps, and Thai reflexology, which targets pressure points in the feet to balance the body’s energy.
At Lash, all the focus is on the eyes. The staff here offers lash extensions, makeup, and tinting to beautify the face. Eyelash extensions are provided with careful attention, resulting in a sultry gaze that can turn heads and land airplanes. The staff also offers fills to keep the lashes thick and sustained, as well as lash and brow tinting, waxing, and makeup applications.
At Image Nail Salon, nail gurus pamper hands and feet with a fleet of manicures and pedicures. During the manicure and spa pedicure, patrons commit hands and feet to the care of a keratin master, who spends between 60 and 90 minutes clipping and buffing nails and swaddling digits in colored polish. A package of two can be used to spruce up original work at a later date, or to decorate your second set of limbs. Alternatively, opt for a 40-minute gel manicure, and a skilled technician will trim nails, curtail cuticles, and finish each fingertip with a long-lasting color swatch. Though not included in today’s Groupon, clients can treat paws to further TLC with a variety of add-on services, including a french manicure ($5 extra) or nail art ($5 extra) such as stars, flowers, or a miniature replica of the Sistine Chapel.
If swanky salons with $150 haircuts and color jobs are out of your budget, Aveda Institute Denver is a welcome refuse. Located in the historic Denver Dry Good Building, this full-service salon is actually a licensed cosmetology school, offering hands-on experience to students and affordable beauty treatments to clients. The windowed storefront looks out onto the lively corner of 16th and California, on the busy 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. Upon entering, clients step up into a reception area lined with Aveda products; the salon itself stretches some 17,000 square feet across two clinic floors, with seven hands-on classrooms and over 100 cosmetology stations, twelve shampoo stations and fourteen spa treatment rooms. The idea is for students at the institute to gain experience by working with willing locals, who can in turn receive salon-quality cuts, spa treatments and more – all at a remarkably reduced rate.
When it comes to helping a client make positive adjustments, Changes of Cherry Creek doesn't restrict itself to just one methodology. For more than three decades, the spa has mixed science with holistic care in a manner that puts technology and human understanding on the same team.
On one end of the spa's spectrum, the hands of massage therapists and nail technicians caress achy muscles and embellish fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures. On the other end, the spa turns to computers, or at least experts who can speak in convincing robot voices. That willingness to utilize modern tools leads to the use of toning machines to make skin look younger, as well as lasers to zap away tufts of unwanted hair. The modernity even carries over to the decor—polished chrome coats the chairs, counters, and tables in the lobby.
For more than 30 years, Cade Clinique Salon & Spa has been keeping Denver beautiful with traditional aesthetic services and cutting-edge treatments. Hairstylists use trims, highlights, and texturizing treatments to design flattering hairdos, while aestheticians pamper clients with customized facials and massage therapists soothe tightly knotted musculature. However, the spa's technicians demonstrate their dedication to modern advancements by enlisting various technologies as well. In addition to zapping unwanted stubble or concealing acne scars with the help of a cosmetic laser system, they also use microdermabrasion wands and ultrasound wave treatments to leave skin as smooth as the slide that runs down the side of Mount Everest.
