Spa Is Where The Heart Is


Your clients probably still enjoy a Valentine’s Day package with a romantic side-by-side couples massage, champagne and a rose. It’s a classic, and for good reason. But consider kicking up creativity a bit for this sweetheart’s holiday and offer your lovebirds something that can strengthen their relationship beyond skin deep.
One way to bring couples together in a deeper way is through their chakras, or points of spiritual power in the body. Elixir Mind Body Massage in Denver, Colo., offers a Chakras Couples Massage (60 minutes, $199), which provides both physical and mental relaxation while supporting a positive energetic connection. They use very specific essential oil blends and crystals associated with the heart, throat and sacral chakras for this massage.

19 Spa Experiences to Help You Relax This Winter


We’re all for hourlong—hell, even daylong—doses of pampering. But sometimes life gets in the way and all you’ve got the time (and budget) for is a quick fix before your iPhone beeps with your next appointment reminder. Enter Elixir Mind Body Massage. The LoDo spa’s 15- to 30-minute chair massages focus on the upper body, where we office drones tend to store our stress. You’ll remain fully clothed and free of any creams or oils, but you’ll still get the same professional service. And, and, if you sign up for a membership ($444 for six months, $828 for a year, or $79 every 30 days on a month-to-month basis), you’ll get two of the shorter rubdowns each month. When your 15 minutes of knot-untying is over, Elixir’s convenient LoDo location means you can run right back to the office. Or—might we suggest—to happy hour.

Choose from 13 massages that can be combined with 11 enhancements, such as aromatherapy, a sugar scrub, lavender steam, and dry brushing, and mix and match from the menu for a different spa experience every time you go—which will be often.

Wellness: Belly-Friendly Spas


19 spas nationwide have been Belly Friendly trained. Here in Denver, Elixir Mind Body Massage in LoDo is the first to receive the Belly Friendly seal of approval.

In fact, more than 60 percent of the survey respondents said they received spa treatments during pregnancy, and almost all indicated they’d choose a spa that specialized in prenatal service, if it was available, over another.

Wellness: The Worst Spa Day Ever?


Sometimes, a girl just needs a spa day. Whether it’s a stressful week at work, an onslaught of personal drama, or simply coping with a lot going on, everybody needs to recharge with some “me-time” now and then. One of my favorite me-time plans involves a lavender-scented robe, heated neck towel, some herbal infused tea, and a nice long Swedish massage to undo the knots. When done well, there’s nothing more soothing. That is the whole point of spa-going. To relax, unwind, and check your worries at the door. It is the spa’s job to make your stress melt away.

Amenities: Elixir is a cool and stylish — think standard LoDo — massage house rather than a spa. There is no steam room or Jacuzzi, just a set of lovely treatment rooms (including one where the steam comes to you as you’re massaged) and a relaxation lounge.

Closed businesses open opportunities in market


Sandy Stroehmann knew for months that the recession would claim at least one of her competitors in the massage business, and when one closed, she was ready to act.
Stroehmann, founder of Elixir massage spa at 1518A Wazee St., announced last month that she would honor gift certificates from Revive Spa after it closed its downtown location. The move would cost her business money initially, she said, but it will help pay off in the long run.
