Spa Linnea Opens at Hotel Madeline In Telluride with Nature-Inspired Therapies for Playing Hard, Resting Easy
From Sweden to the Colorado Rockies, restorative treatments delivered by talented therapists to counter the effects of high-altitude vacationing
March 8, 2011 (Telluride, Colorado) - Relax, revitalize and relieve the effects of Rocky Mountain vacationing at Spa Linnea at Hotel Madeline in Telluride, Colorado. As envisioned by Blu Spas, Inc., the new full-service destination spa draws inspiration from nature for transformational treatments that are superbly suited for travelers fresh from the slopes, the trails or even the sidewalks of Telluride. The spa also services sister property, the Inn at Lost Creek, located just next door. Check out all that is waiting to be experienced through Spa Linnea's new Facebook page, featuring the new treatment menu, product information and more.
Spa Linnea is named for the nordic paired flower that grows wildly in both the Scandinavian mountains of Sweden and the alpine meadows of the Colorado Rockies. With an eye on fashioning a truly distinctive spa experience, Blu Spas, Inc. focused on the environmental extremes that are part of every Telluride vacation: dry air, high altitude and sun exposure. Pinpoint therapies enable clientele to "play hard and rest easy," with highest quality natural products and treatments delivered by talented therapists - also known as "Altitude Adjusters" - who know first-hand the natural intensity and beauty the Rocky Mountains hold.
Spa Linnea Treatmenet Suite
Spa Linnea unfolds as a soothing space to unwind and revitalize amid locally inspired design elements. The intimate spa showcases suites with private showers, steam rooms, fireplaces and fetching views. The spa's oxygen therapy room offers a relaxing space to restore, re-hydrate and re-energize bodies and minds that have been overtaxed by the thin mountain air. For post-treatment reflection, a tearoom serves herbal and organic refreshment, with herbal teas and organic fruits and nuts as well as healthful creations of fresh local ingredients from recently launched M's Restaurant.
Spa Linnea utilizes three skincare lines for treatments as well as retail purchase: Zents of Boulder creates spa-grade body care with sophisticated scents from Colorado ingredients. The Carslbad, California-based skincare lifestyle company Skin Authority supplies products used in Spa Linnea's facial treatments. And Osea, the conscientiously green, organic skincare outfit out of Malibu supplies the spa's marine-based line. In keeping with its local focus, Spa Linnea is also reaching out to private small-batch skincare producers that create effective remedies from indigenous ingredients found in alpine meadows throughout the region around Telluride.
Spa Linnea's treatment menu runs from traditional and specialty massages to body and wellness therapies, facials and beauty treatments to packages and rituals. Among the signature offerings:
- Spirit of the Mountains Massage - Healing herbal poultice delivers soothing warmth, detoxification and therapeutic botanicals deep into muscles, with potent aromatherapy oils and balancing pressure points for healing. (80 min, $190)
- Twin Flower Body Renewal - A seasonal, results-driven body exfoliation and massage combining natural ingredients, restorative scrub and the healing touch. (50 min/80 min., $140/$200)
