The staff at Spa Petite works towards relaxation and aesthetic goals with, among other assets, a degree from the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy, training with essential oils, and decades of reiki experience. Smooth stones soak up warmth, ready to slip across backs during hot-stone massages, and Sherri Duchene prepares batches of imported French wax to remove unwanted hair. While working in the spa, she also draws upon knowledge of supplements, herbs, and aromatherapy to create her own creams and oils free of artificial ingredients, which can irritate skin. Neuromuscular massages and reiki treatments work to stimulate the body's natural healing processes, unlike schoolyard bullies, who target the body’s natural ability to hit itself.
