Fort Collins has many excellent day spas within the city limits and nearby. Some are located in beautiful natural areas outside the hustle and bustle of city life. Others are close to where you work and shop. In our travels we have concluded that the spas listed below are the best choices in this area.
One of the more enjoyable spa experiences is a massage. Therapeutic massage works muscles, tendons and joints. This deep massage helps stretch and heal tense and overworked muscles. A serenity massage is focused on your neck, shoulders, back and scalp. These are the most common areas for tension storage. Releasing the stress will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. For a truly unusual experience, consider a hot stone massage. The extra heat in the stones gently deepens the massage resulting in greater relaxation and deeper healing.
Facials are good for the body and the soul. Applied correctly, a facial can help correct acne and restore health. Many facials will exfoliate dead skin, improve skin tone and smooth roughened areas. Retexturing can reverse dryness and sun damage. Nourishing and cooling masks replenish nutrients and calm irritated skin. Several products and treatments deliver anti-aging benefits.
Body wraps are the next best thing to a cocoon. The combination of mud, seaweed, minerals, fruit, essential oils and a thermal wrap, envelope your entire body in a healing and soothing environment. Being tightly wrapped with warm, aromatic coverings lends an indescribable feeling of peace and safety.
Your visit to your favorite spa would not be complete without a manicure or a pedicure. First, your hands or feet will dally in a luxious soak of essential oils. Next, your aesthetician will trim and shape your nails and cuticles. Finally, your Fort Collins spa experience ends with a light massage and a finishing polish.
You can spend an hour or an entire day in luxurious bliss. Of course, one visit or treatment is never enough. Fortunately, spas offer package deals. A package might include multiple treatments applied during one visit. Others offer the same treatment multiple times spread over a month or more. The choice is yours and you will find most spas to be very flexible in these arrangements.
After your visit to a Fort Collins spa, why not enjoy the rest of the city's attractions? The Old Town area is rich with art galleries, unique coffee shops and a very wide variety of shopping opportunities. Every summer in August you can enjoy the New West Fest. In the fall everyone always delights in the annual Cemetery Crawl. When the town founders and local characters come back to life, there is no need to scream, unless it is with laughter. Come see the best Fort Collins has to offer.
