After performing more than 170,000 chiropractic adjustments for over 4,200 patients, it is no stretch to call Dr. Terry Smith of Smith Chiropractic an expert in his field. Dr. Smith practices a variety of chiropractic techniques including activator, Thompson Drop, and chiropractic biophysics to help align the spines of his clients and elicit the envy of jellyfish. They also offer decompression treatments to alleviate low back injuries, such as disc bulging and sciatica, or arm and leg pain. Smith Chiropractic were among the first chiropractic offices in Colorado Springs to adopt class-4 laser treatments for non-surgical pain relief, reduction of inflammation, and healing.
As the stylists at Royal Salon Organic Care whittle away at unruly coifs, they eschew common ammonia- and paraben-laden chemical products in favor of natural, vegan Organic Salon Systems products. Under the leadership of owner Indre Roy, the experts wield these products while adding depth with highlights, razoring layers, and twisting tresses into updos for weddings or neck model auditions. Organic nail polishes also adhere to the salon’s philosophy, brightening fingertips after the nail technician draws on her background in reflexology to massage hands and arms. Extremities also get a treat in the form of homemade sea salt or sugar scrubs. Sugaring is offered for clients wishing to get rid of body and facial hair.
Every treatment at Serene Serendipity: face to face, LLC begins and ends in a private suite with decorative candles and soft music foreshadowing the pampering to come. Here, a licensed aesthetician revives tired skin with treatments that incorporate various serums, masks, and techniques. For instance, the 90-minute relaxing luxury spa facial relies on steam to open pores, rotary brushes to dislodge toxins, and various massage techniques to keep the therapist’s hands from high-fiving each other. The butter back body J-Lo glow treatment, on the other hand, renders skin soft and radiant through thorough exfoliation and a moisturizing seaweed wrap. On top of these lavish treatments, the center also offers microdermabrasions and waxing with soft and hard waxes from GiGi and Berins, respectively.
Barbara and Clint, Hang Zen’s massage therapist and aesthetician, respectively, work to create an environment of pure pampering at their spa. From welcome refreshments to the aromatherapy fragrances in the air, they set a scene that soothes the senses and creates an escape from the stresses of the outside world. Barbara specializes in deep-tissue massage and myofascial release, therapies that focus on rooting out entrenched tension, whereas Clint makes his clients' skin glow brighter than a lightning bug’s brief self-esteem with facials and scrubs.
The massage therapists at Harmony Massage & Bodyworks use Young Living Essential Oils products to soften and nourish skin during massages and smooth natural elements such as honey and New Zealand clay onto physiques during soothing body wraps. Patrons can also opt for facials that purify complexions with top-shelf products or waxing sessions that leave skin hairless and smooth.
