Since opening four years ago, Spa of the Rockies clients have had the opportunity to try and observe, either via spa services or at-home treatments, the results of the many products available at the award-winning spa located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
The top sellers deliver consistent results to a demanding clientele in a crowded marketplace. The Spa of the Rockies’ peak performers include products from Pure Inventions, Kneipp, Eminence, Lexli and Zents.
“Skin and body care are some of the top reasons our clients choose Spa of the Rockies,” said Avalon Lionheart, Spa of the Rockies Manager. “Our aestheticians and therapists receive ongoing education about the efficacy of products, but ultimately it’s our clients who tell us which products are the most effective.”
When guests check in for a treatment at Spa of the Rockies, they are offered a green tea beverage from Pure Inventions featuring a liquid nutritional supplement that is added to water and is rich in antioxidants, the nutrients believed to promote younger-looking skin, a healthy metabolism and increased energy. The company founded by Lynne Gerhards and Lori Mulligan, both certified clinical nutritionists and nutritional consultants, offers a variety of formulations, but the flavor favorite at Spa of the Rockies is Pure Inventions Pineapple Coconut Green Tea. Pure Inventions uses stevia leaf and lo han fruit as natural sweeteners; both are low-glycemic and may aid with digestion. Each serving provides the same benefits as ten cups of brewed tea; one two-ounce bottle provides an incredible 60 servings!
Enhancing the overall wellbeing of clients is the paramount mission of Spa of the Rockies massage therapists. Whether the client is an athlete just off a race or is suffering from the symptoms associated with arthritis or fibromyalgia, each is looking for the relief that often only comes with a massage. “For these clients we typically use our line of Kneipp arnica products in treatments and recommend them for at-home care as well,” explains Spa of the Rockies massage therapist Mike Sussman, who specializes in deep tissue and sports massage. The arnica plant is one of the best-known medicinal plants, used for centuries by Europeans and Native Americans. With its natural anti-inflammatory properties, Kneipp Arnica Joint & Muscle Intensive Creamisespecially effective for easing discomfort associated with joint stiffness, as well as soothing puffiness of the legs and ankles.
In addition to massage services, facials are the other preferred treatment at Spa of the Rockies. Because of dryness related to both aging and the climate, the Stonecrop Hydration Facial is a favorite with spa-goers. The 50-minute treatment uses products featuring the ultra-hydrating stonecrop plant, a succulent, to encourage cell regeneration, lighten pigmentation spots and erase the signs of sun damage. It’s no wonder the Eminence Stonecrop Whip Moisturizer remains a bestseller among men and women. All products in the Hungarian-based Eminence line are made by hand in small batches, with ingredients sourced from biodynamic farms from around the world. Another succulent plant-based product popular with Spa of the Rockies clientele is the Lexli Lightening Lift Mask. The physician-formulated line uses pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera to treat skin conditions including acne, rosacea, eczema and more. The Lightening Lift Mask provides a temporary lift to the skin and helps to diminish fine lines, while simultaneously toning and firming.
For all the skin between face and feet, Zents lotions rich in organic shea butter are the go-to source for body hydration. The Boulder, Colorado-based company believes in gentle scents, ones that are not overpowering or filled with synthetic ingredients, ideals which seem to resonate with Spa of the Rockies guests. Two particular Zents scents stand out: Fresh, with notes of crisp linden blossom, green apple and lemon that create a light, uplifting fragrance; and Earth, a clean, classic scent that features bergamot, Siberian fir and frankincense.
These diverse products are top sellers at Spa of the Rockies; however, aestheticians and therapists are highly skilled at recommending products that are specifically targeted to the needs of individual clients. Spa of the Rockies was recently recognized with Readers’ Choiceawards by both SpaFinder and Spa magazine.
