Newly opened Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, located next to Victoria’s Secret and Macy’s at Northfield, offers different types of massage and facials to aid in the goal of good health and wellness. “The misconception is that massage is used only for healing,” says Lowry resident Scott Kolble, who owns the spa with his wife, Libby. “Massage is used to add onto the health and wellness of every human.”
Hand & Stone Massage has a signature hot stone massage, but offers all varieties of massage including deep tissue, Swedish, sports, reflexology, neuromuscular, Reiki, trigger points, pre-natal and cranial-sacral, plus facials, microderm abrasion, waxing, chemical peels and tinting. “A hot stone massage is a special type of massage,” Scott explained. “We use different sizes of very smooth rocks like bedrock that are heated to a comfortable temperature. It allows the rocks to heat up the really tight muscles in the client before giving that really nice, deep tissue massage.
“Men think of a spa as being for women who want to be pampered. That’s a misconception. Everybody spends money on gyms, but they never think about making sure that all those muscles they are working on recover.”
Massages last 50 minutes, but are scheduled for an hour to allow clients time to talk to the therapist about what is going on with their body and make a decision about what to work on.
Scott says he got regular facials and massages when he was a vice president for a local software company. He became interested in the massage and facial spa business when he found a ‘better’ spa—and decided to buy it. Libby is a commercial property manager for a Denver high-rise downtown.
A massage and facial once a month makes people feel better and more relaxed, says Scott, so he offers a lifestyle program much like a gym membership. The monthly program gives the client one massage or one facial of their choice plus discounts on all other services and products. For clients who want to try their services before making a monthly commitment, a massage introductory price is $49.95 and the facial is $59.95. With his December grand opening special, the monthly membership is $49.95.
