It Is Easy Being Green at Studio West Aveda

By Beth Dodd:


For the past 16 years, Studio West Aveda has been a leader in green spa services in Woodland Park. They offer a full array of spa treatments, including massages, facials, nails, and hair care as well as natural, chemical-free hair and body products to keep the glow going at home.

Unlike many other salon businesses where training ends when a technician finishes school, the twelve member team at Studio West is constantly learning through quarterly trainings. They now have additional staff and several new treatment options to care for their patrons.

Reflexology, a form of massage for the hands and feet that benefits the whole body, is now available. Also for the body, Esogetic Colorpuncture Therapy is a new spin on acupuncture and acupressure, with color lasers used to stimulate the acupoints. Those who love nail enhancements, but not chemicals, will enjoy Studio West Aveda’s new nail shellac, which protects your nails from harsh chemicals by sandwiching nail polish in layers of non-toxic gel.

These pampering services are not just for women. When you look good and feel good, your attitude and health improve – even if you are male! Studio West Aveda offers hair care and shaving products designed with men in mind. Their Invati hair care products promote thickness and retention of hair for guys concerned about a diminishing mane. This product line works great for women too.

Studio West Aveda can help you create a beautiful personal and home atmosphere as well as a beautiful body. They market the works of local artists, from custom jewelry, clothing, glass art, and ceramics to wall art. Spring Creek Vineyards of Canon City and Mountain View Wines of Olathe offer their wines through tastings and sales at the spa.

Why stop at just keeping yourself looking good and feeling good? Studio West Aveda works to help keep the whole planet beautiful while taking care of you. All waste from the salon is totally recycled and all the products they use and sell are natural. They also contribute to Locks of Love and youth art education.
