The concept of “spa” appears as early as 1000 B.C. Generally speaking, spas were associated with “taking the waters” in flowing springs, ocean waters, or quiet pools. Both the ancient Romans and Greeks found the spa to be an integral part of their lives, both for relaxation and to increase the beneficial outcome of medical treatment. The Romans carried that notion to the far-reaches of the known world. In the American Colonies as early as 1777, physicians recommended “spas” to enhance their medical treatments. Coming full circle from the ancient city of Bath, UK to the first day spa in Manhattan in 1907 (Elizabeth Arden) and now back to the wellness spa concept, The Spa at the Garden of the Gods Collection in association with the International Health and Wellness Center inhabits both worlds.
While every service we offer is relaxing and strengthening for body and mind, we also recognize that our services play an important role in maintaining or returning to a state of well-being. In addition to our wide range of health promoting services, the following services are offered specifically for those who are facing health challenges.

Lymphatic Enhancement Technology
60 min, $125 +
Using an electronic device and supported by manual stimulation techniques, this health inducing therapy improves lymphatic drainage and increases fluid flow. Providing various fields of low vibration energy with the intention of stimulating the lymphatic capillaries to increase fluid flow as well as break down protein-rich interstitial fluid, LET is a gentle, relaxing and non-invasive treatment that appears to work more effectively than manual techniques used alone. LET supports the immune system, improves localized swelling, assists in healing pre and post surgery.
To assist the body in finding “balance” or homeostasis, we offer many services. Please review the Pure and Sense Soft Pack treatments, and Body Therapies to find many options. Lymphatic Enhancement Technology is also a tool to cleanse your body and reduce the strain on your organs.
