Curate your own healing journey at this award-winning spa, located inside the AAA Four Diamond Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa (above). Book one of the mountain-related journeys: The Rocky Mountain Journey borrows from indigenous remedies, integrating ponderosa pine, sage, red clover and river stones into treatments. The Alpine Journey looks to Europe for elements to revitalize your body. Finally, the services of the Himalayan Journey are designed to promote inner peace and clarity.

5 Star Salt Caves Wellness Center, Denver

In this beautiful space on a quiet block in the Washington Park West neighborhood, the focus is on wellness. The spa’s centerpiece is a manmade Himalayan rock salt cave (above), where patrons recline on loungers, sit in silence and breathe deeply, allowing the antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties of the halotherapy to do their work. Massages, ionic foot baths, infrared sauna sessions, sound baths and breathwork round out the offerings, which are best experienced via their two- to three-hour-long day spa packages.

St. Julien Hotel & Spa, Boulder

Utterly relax at this posh AAA Four Diamond property that recalls the elegance of a European hotel. Hotel guests and the public are welcome at the spa. Try the Colorado Bliss CBD Classic Massage, during which CBD oil is used in conjunction with smooth strokes and gentle kneading to calm the mind and body. In fact, CBD is integrated into several of the treatments and as add-ons to other body services.

Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves, Glenwood Springs

This magnificent ancient site has a rich history for healing by the Ute Indians and early settlers. Bubbling up from the earth, hot mineral spring water has created the only known natural vapor caves in North America that offer both mineral baths and natural vapor. The Cave and Soak experience is exactly that—30 minutes of soaking in pristine hot mineral water in private tubs, followed by two hours in the vapor caves (above). Add on massage, facials, wraps, scrubs, or energy healing, such as reiki and sound healing, for the perfect spa experience. Within this uniquely natural setting, shamanic and other healers occasionally host guided awakenings and retreats.
