Unique Spa Treatments to Try at the Spa of the Rockies
These four Spa of the Rockies treatments offer out-of-the ordinary massage experiences in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and are especially nurturing for people who are visiting the mountains.
Lymphatic Drainage. The job of the lymph system is to pick up fluids and waste products from the spaces between the cells and filter and clean them via the body’s lymph nodes. Using one-directional movements during a Lymphatic Drainage massage, the therapist helps to speed up the body’s natural healing process by moving lymph toward the nodes. This technique is especially popular in Europe and is known for achieving powerful results for everyone from post surgery patients to athletes and those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.
Reiki. Practitioners of the Japanese healing art of Reiki believe that when the body’s energy becomes weak, unbalanced or blocked it could lead to a variety of ailments. Spa of the Rockies trained Reiki therapists use a combination of light-touch and hands-off techniques to optimize the body’s life energy force for physical, mental and emotional healing. Unlike in traditional massage, clients are fully clothed throughout the treatment.
Altitude Adjustment. Roughly one fifth of Colorado ski area vacationers develop altitude sickness. Symptoms include headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, insomnia and loss of appetite. A Spa of the Rockies High Altitude Adjustment massage helps alleviate these symptoms by stimulating the circulatory system and improving the body’s ability to deliver more oxygen to tissues. To speed up the acclimatization process even more, consider adding a flavored oxygen treatment to this or any Spa of the Rockies treatment.
Unifying Reflexology. According to ancient Chinese medicine, applying pressure to designated points on the hands, feet and even the ears stimulates energy channels known as meridians. Every pressure point corresponds to a different part of the body. Reflexology is especially effective in treating migraines and the side effects of cancer treatments; it improves circulation, removes toxins and promotes an overall sense of wellbeing.
