After the past few years, who doesn’t need a mind and body tune-up? Fortunately, you do not have to jet off to an expensive spa retreat to find rest and renewal. Denver has everything you need to fill your transformative toolbox with innovative spa services and one-of-a-kind experiences. Here are a few to get started.

Dance and Drumming

Movement and music are powerful overall health and wellness activities. When it comes to mind and body, there is no better place than Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, an international leader in this space for five decades.

“During the pandemic we learned to improvise,” says Parker Robinson. “What came out of an improvisation was sometimes better than what we knew before. We are in a new time of being very creative for how to align our bodies with our mind and spirit.” She continues, “What’s most important is knowing you are walking into an environment that experiences love. That is mind, body and soul.”

CPRD offers many types of movement classes along with African drumming. Love and gratitude are integral to the lessons, beginning with words of affirmation and thankfulness at the start of class.

Salt Therapy (Halotherapy)

Dry salt therapy can provide additional health benefits for lungs and skin. Five Star Salt Caves offers an array of therapies: massage, foot soaks and full-spectrum infrared sauna. However, Five Star’s main wellness feature is its salt cave. Constructed using 13,000 pounds of Himalayan rock salt, this man-made oasis is one of Denver’s unique wellness experiences.

Co-owner Markus Bohunovsky describes the salt cave benefits as “respiratory health, breathing and deep relaxation.” Co-owner Stephanie Pfam adds that Five Star hosts classes in the cave designed for further mind-and-body healing.

Float Therapy

Float therapy can be a useful medium for letting go of negativity and heaviness. Vive Float Studio offers a cutting-edge way to reap the benefits of floating in the sea without leaving Denver.

Owner Andi Sigler fell in love with the healing powers of the Dead Sea and wanted to re-create a facility to accommodate simultaneous mental and physical rest and recovery. “I really believe in the power of float. It has equal profound impact on the body and mind,” says Sigler. The float pools at Vive are located in private rooms and filled with magnesium-rich salt water.

Cryotherapy is the use of cold temperatures derived from liquid nitrogen to increase circulation, relieve inflammation and stimulate collagen growth. At Elixir Mind Body Massage, expert estheticians perform cryofacial treatments on the face and neck. The cryofacial gives skin a healthy glow by boosting elasticity.

Owner Sandra Strehmann says the Denver spa, which has a 15-year history in lower downtown, is rooted in the mind-and-body concept. “We create long-term relationships with clients and partner with them to reach their health goals.”

Tea, Tinctures and Essential Oils

Consulting an herbalist can help reduce stress, anxiety and sleep deprivation. Apothecary Tinctura makes its own line of herbal teas, tinctures and essential oils that an herbalist can help personalize to individual needs.

“Using the body’s innate ability to heal itself with the Earth and nature is our goal,” says Tasha Weiss-Johnson, a collaborating partner, herbalist and educator. The 25-year-old business hosts herbal health and DIY classes and provides private consultations.

Chakra Healing and Meditation

Meditation is an age-old practice for clearing negativity and restoring positive energy. The Psychic Healing Center of Aspen offers classes and private sessions for chakra healing, meditation and psychic communications.

The center’s founder, Shaman Tammy Adams, says, “The most important resolution a person can have is to allow oneself to be right with themselves. In order for the mind, body and soul to be in balance you must remind yourself everything works together.”

Colleen Christy is also a local meditation guide in Denver. She uses a unique method of chakra healing derived from colorful singing bowls. She started Rainbow Sound Therapy as a specially designed medium to help people with learning differences and anxiety—which Christy refers to as “neurodiversity” or individual “superpowers.”

Instead of using a permanent location, Christy travels to schools, parks and homes. “Practicing mindfulness allows us to see our strengths and look at all areas of our life more clearly. Rather than feel like we have to fix something about us, we need to listen to ourselves and visualize the ways we can use our strengths to explore the world.”

Skin Treatments

Skin treatments that exfoliate and help with cellular turnover are another way to reset the body. SkinSpirit is one of Denver’s newest skin spas. It has an extensive list of services including removing dead skin cells and extracting impurities.

Master esthetician and Denverite Hannah Anderson says, “Skin is the biggest organ in the body. When we practice self-care and improve the health of our skin, we are showing valuable love to ourselves.”

Massage therapy is a powerful tool for healing and relaxation. Massage therapist Marius Coste from Alternative Solutions Massage Therapy says he uses many different body procedures to personalize each massage. “Massage is a complex procedure because it can alleviate stress and pain, but it also provides mental clarity and relaxation.”
