MASSAGE AND SPA INSPIRATION
First things first, let’s establish that Valentine’s day falls on a Thursday this year, which means it falls on a work night. That’s why we’re saying it’s OK to book a massage or plan a nice dinner out for over the weekend but book it before V Day so you can take advantage of any deals! Here is a carefully selected list of amazing spas across the country that offer ultimate luxury, excellent services, and specialize in total relaxation.

Denver Deep’s Ashiatsu Massage with CBD Oil (available to add on to any service!)
Really go deep this with a CBD, deep tissue Ashiatsu massage at Denver Deep.
“Ashiatsu is a deep compression barefoot massage where the therapist utilizes parallel bars on the ceiling for support and balance. Using gravity and body weight, the therapist can deliver a consistent deep pressure massage with the feet. The broad surface area of the foot makes the compression smooth and comprehensive.
When you choose to add a CBD treatment to your Deep Tissue Ashiatsu Therapeutic Massage session, it accelerates muscle recovery, desensitizes nerve pain and reduces anxiety. While deep tissue massage is already known as one of the best ways to eradicate stress, having a topical CBD paired with our bodywork will elevate your mood and mindset.”
