There’s a lovely place to find a dose of self-care in the mountains. Vail Valley Wellness is now open in Eagle-Vail and combines innovative spa services with the latest in bioenergetic medicine to help you rest, relax and receive alternative health care.
“It is our mission to make holistic medicine more approachable and accessible, and the Vail Valley is exactly the place for this type of care,” shares owner Becky Burgess. “Whether you are an athlete looking to recover, a baby boomer looking for an alternative to Botox, or a professional who needs to de-stress, we know you’ll find easy and effective healing through one of our many services. We provide a calm and peaceful space for locals and visitors of the Vail Valley to take a moment to find their peace.”
Services at Vail Valley Wellness include foot detox baths, cosmetic acupuncture to help rejuvenate the skin, BioMat sessions that use infrared technology to promote healing, cupping therapy to help move stagnation and pain in the body, acupuncture, customized herbs, along with specific treatments for women’s health, pain, fertility and emotional distress, among other health concerns.
“One of our most popular offerings is our yoni steams, which is the practice of vaginal steaming and allowing an herbal decoction to permeate and warm your feminine essence,” shares Burgess. “This is a truly unique experience that has the town buzzing!”
A cosmetic acupuncture package is a great way to receive all the balancing benefits of acupuncture while investing in a plan for the vibrancy and longevity of your skin.
“When I think about all of the harsh ways we treat our skin and especially our faces, it makes me cringe,” says Burgess. “Your face is your best asset and I love providing skin care that cares about you.”
The cosmetic acupuncture helps reverse skin discoloration from sun damage, promote healthy microcirculation and detoxification, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and generally lift, tone, firm and brighten the face.
“I believe this modality to be life-changing,” Burgess shares. “Of course it takes time and it’s not a forever fix! You have to do your due diligence to hold the incredible results, including healthy lifestyle choices.”
The Vail Valley Wellness space is inviting, and as Burgess has described, it’s built upon the practices of ancient medicine. As modern medicine has been reaching for more and more one-size-fits-all plans, Burgess says her focus is to not just treat many conditions with one pill or one procedure, but rather give each individual a unique and customized plan.
“Here, we look at the individual,” she said. “We find out more about their constitution, their health history and current health goals. We guide them through treatment options and answer any questions they may have about lifestyle, nutrition and healthy habits. Our locals and visitors of the Vail Valley are extremely health-conscious and motivated. This forward-thinking clientele is actually looking at the medicine of the past to help them heal and we aim to provide everything they need under one roof here in Eagle-Vail.”
