Busy groups that are otherwise on the go during a meeting in Colorado Springs will appreciate some relaxation at one of the area’s beautiful and rejuvenating spas.
This spring, Alluvia Spa and Wellness Retreat at Cheyenne Mountain Resort introduced group programming called Treatments with Purpose, with an aim of alleviating common pains associated with professional demands such as computer typing, mobile phone usage, heavy lifting and more.
“This menu will include a suite of express and full-service treatments such as therapeutic massages, foot and hand care, body stretches and hyper-targeted techniques,” said Rachel Horgan, the resort’s marketing manager.
Alluvia Spa and Wellness Retreat also provides tailored wellness experiences including sunrise energy gatherings, midday revitalizing express breaks and after-hours decompression socials for groups interested in a spa buyout.
The Spa at Broadmoor is also available for group buyouts, as well as individual treatments, and according to Director of Spa Cassie Hernandez, the staff can get quite creative during a meeting’s breakout session.
“Chair massages are popular for back and neck, which can always tighten up from sitting too long,” she said, and added groups also enjoy an aromatherapy bar. “We place a few drops of oil on their wrists, have them take a deep inhalation and send them off with a sample of the product to enjoy the rest of the day.”
In May this year, Garden of the Gods Collection opened its International Health & Wellness Center, which houses a new 10,000-square-foot spa and salon, a 10,000-square-foot medical center and an 11,000-square-foot event center.
According to Spa Director Rebecca Johnston, the full-service spa offers nine treatment rooms and therapies including the popular Garden of the Gods Body Glow, “a quick but highly effective massage,” and four manicure and pedicure stations with picturesque views.
Other than traditional services, enhanced experiences including Himalayan salt inhalation rooms and herbal saunas are available.
Located at The Mining Exchange, A Wyndham Grand Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs, is MX Spa, which offers complimentary champagne and wine before services, as well as use of the sauna and steam room.
According to Spa Director Sophia Alberico, the 50-minute signature massage, including nourishing antioxidant cream, and the 50-minute signature facial are top among the spa’s most popular treatments.
“We have several skilled and certified massage therapists that we are happy to arrange for chair massages at meetings,” she added. “Our spa is in the basement of the Mining Exchange hotel, so it is easy for our team to move throughout the hotel, or for guests to have a quick getaway to the spa in-between meetings.”
Nearby Colorado Springs are SunWater Spa and SunMountain Center, sister sites in historic Manitou Springs.
SunWater invites meeting attendees to enjoy a specialty massage and soak in one of seven cedar-infused hot mineral spring pools when business of the day has concluded, according to Wendy Wilkinson, the property’s publicity coordinator.
SunWater, which offers views of Pikes Peak, also offers more than 25 weekly movement, yoga and meditation classes, as well as treatments using natural products including lavender and sage.
