A First Look at Denver's New "Wellness Marketplace"

Fitness
Massage

Denver is packed with food halls and community marketplaces that focus on locally-crafted food and retail. And while they tend to give a nod to the healthy lifestyle, there hasn’t been one that focuses specifically on wellness. That is, until now. Denver, meet Nurture

A La Carte Self-Care 

Inspired by the success of the food hall concept, Nurture co-founders Kelly Campbell, Nikki Dority, and Peter Strauss wanted to create a space where Denver’s health-conscious crowd could eat, sweat, relax, and shop—a space where you can be nurtured in every sense of the word, all under one roof.  

Nurture is taking over a former school at 2949 Federal Blvd. in the Highlands. Come early 2020, the two-story, 20,000-square-foot building will be filled with vendors focused on all things wellness. There’ll be everything from acupuncture to massage along with holistically-minded beauty services and eco-friendly retail. A cafe will serve up healthy bites and a juice bar will press fresh sips.  

It’s a place you’ll want to stay awhile, and they’re making it easy to do just that with lockers, showers, and even childcare on site for all to use. To add to the convenience, Nurture will also have its own app. You’ll be able to use it to book classes and services but also to order ahead food and drink. Have your favorite protein smoothie ready after your workout or order a cold brew coffee before you leave your house so that you can be ready to sip while you shop.

Feel The Rhythm 

Nurture will be anchored by local cycling studio Rhythm Revolution. The brainchild of DJ and fitness guru Jasmine Anderson, Rhythm Revolution is a beat-based movement concept that spent several years spinning both wheels and records in a Park Hill studio, as well as at special events and retreats. With the end of the lease for the Park Hill studio on the horizon, the opportunity to join the Nurture community presented itself, and Jasmine jumped. Closing the doors on Park Hill, she was drawn to the unique concept and collaborative environment of the marketplace. “The owners have a deep-seeded belief in teamwork and elevating each other,” Jasmine told us. “Their vision aligns so well with what I’m doing with Rhythm Revolution and I’m just so excited to be part of it.” 

Rhythm Revolution will comprise approximately 1,100 square feet of Nurture’s space and will offer the same lineup of classes that have afforded them such a following—hard-hitting cycling set to heavy beats, either alone or paired with yoga, HIIT, or strength training. You can expect a sweet sound system and intense lighting to add to the full-body and fully-immersive experience. 

As of today, Nurture hasn't set an official opening date, but you can stay up to date on their progress—and some sneak peeks of their vendors—on Instagram

The Best Spa Days in San Diego for Stress Relief (& All-Around Good Vibes) 

Acupuncture
Beauty
Motivation
Relaxation

While being in constant sunshine and warm waters might feel like a wellness treatment in and of itself, the way to really make those out-of-office days count is to treat yourself to one of San Diego’s best spas. Whether you’re in need of a calming facial, a deep tissue massage that hurts so good, or you want to try cupping for the first time, these are our favorite places in San Diego to work on your wellness.

San Diego in Pocket

Saffron & Sage 

Nestled on a cute little street corner in San Diego’s Little Italy, Saffron & Sage is the ultimate mind, body, and spirit lounge. A client-based holistic health club on a mission to heal their members by focusing on and treating the root causes of their ailments, the studio and spa operates on a membership, although don’t let that stop you from dropping in for the occasional class or treatment.  

Featured in Condé Nast Traveler and Forbes, what truly makes Saffron & Sage stand out is the knowledgeable experts for every facet of physical and mental wellness. In a free consultation, well-trained therapists will find the right treatment for you. Plus, their treatment rooms are much chicer than your standard dark, boring room. Picture plants galore and cool, white décor.  

What We Love: While it might feel like an emerging trend, sound healing isn’t new. Practiced in Chinese, Tibetan, and Indian cultures for centuries, west coast culture is drawing on that knowledge to incorporate sound therapy into workshops, yoga classes, and spa treatments. At Saffron & Sage, you won’t want to miss their Sound Therapy sessions. Utilizing bowls made of quartz crystal and precious stones, sound healing creates a relaxed atmosphere aligning the body and mind to the melodies, which raises vibrational frequency. Sound therapy can take on many forms such as singing bowlsbiofield tuning, or wind chimes.  

According to Cristin Smith, the founder of Saffron & Sage, sound therapy helps with “decreased stress, which is one of the most important aspects since the body cannot heal if it is in a state of stress.” So, instead of sitting that 5 pm traffic, book some sound healing – you’ll thank us later.

Girl on the Go! Night Spa  

Don’t be thrown off by this boutique spa’s downtown neighborhood – stepping into Girl on the Go!’s HQ, you’ll encounter a bright, gorgeous space where the décor is straight out of an influencer’s living room. While there are several spa treatments, massages, and facials, GoTG’s gem is that they are open until 10 pm on weekdays (6 pm on weekends), so you can drop-in after work and try out a new facial.  

What We Love: Created for busy women on the go, GotG isn’t the same experience as a hotel, but each session starts with a complimentary glass of champagne or tea. Spa treatments like facials, waxing, massages are done in comfortable private rooms, while any makeup services are given in the main area. Of those spa treatments, our favorite is Herbal Renewal.  

A 90-minute body treatment, the age-reversing antioxidants from acai, goji, pomegranate, and bilberry will leave your skin feeling fresh. Enjoy a gentle scrub while your therapist perfects your complexion with a mandarin orange body polish. Once you’re in a deep state of Zen, you’ll be coated in a coconut hydrating milk and cocooned in a warm blanket (we know, it sounds divine). While you drift off into a peaceful sleep, don’t forget about your luscious locks. The therapist will work a coconut and mandarin infused hair treatment into your scalp while giving you a deep neck and shoulder massage. Can we go like, now?
