impactful. I will always listen to clients needs, and specifically tailor a
skincare plan to them. I am very attentive to details and my goal is for my
clients to feel refreshed and confident.
I am a Colorado native, and I have lived in Windsor for 5 years. If
I’m not at the spa I am likely watching re-runs of old FRIENDS episodes, curled
up with a good book, or enjoying a date night with my husband.

Helen’s passion and unique manual therapy approach provide a gentle, caring, holistic restoration of the inherent self-healing and regulation mechanism of your body. Over time, your body lessens this ability due to the process of aging, illness, trauma, repetitive injury, surgical scarring, postural imbalances, emotion, and mental and spiritual stresses.
The goal of each session is to precisely assess and address the root cause instead of the symptoms. The session includes a full assessment, manual manipulation and integration. Modalities such as muscle energy, cranio-sacral, fascial normalization, organic manipulation, and active stretching combine to restore the balance of fluids and tissues.
Helen’s 25 years of experience and education in Manual Osteopathy (Canadian College of Osteopathy), Massage Therapy (2200 hour Canadian training), Acupuncture, Personal Fitness Training (NASM), and Reflexology are beneficial for those who have tried “everything” and still have pain or dysfunction that prevents living life to the fullest.

Hello there! My name is Griffy (GRIF-fee) Lové (LUV-ay)!
From a young age, I have had a drive to help others and a dream of becoming a healer. Over the last few years, those passionate desires were achieved! With ambitions to always continue learning, I aspire to help as many people as I can relax and help manage the effects of daily stress upon the body. I have interests in several eastern modalities in the therapeutic world of healing as well as western modalities I’d like to add to my certifications to be the best healer I can be. When it comes to the world of esthetics, I’m always passionate about giving 1000%.
– “I love what I do, so I don’t see this as work. Best part of my day is taking someone who is stressed from their day to day responsibilities or maybe they just haven’t had a good day in a while – and I help them to finally relax and unwind. It’s a truly beautiful thing.”
Unicorns, Nature and Crystals are a few of my likes along with an enjoyment of the grand outdoors while photography, gardening, writing, hiking (and a plethora of geeky interests like anime and gaming) are just a few of the ways I like to spend my free time. With a calling to heal, I strive to help others sparkle on the inside and out; because everyone deserves to feel like a pampered unicorn. 🙂

I attended a local Esthetics and Massage School in Fort Collins where I obtained certifications and excelled in many specialties such as lash lifts, ultrasonic machines, chemical peels, waxing, and microdermabrasion.
I’ve created products for a small holistic skin care business for a few years where I was constantly solicited for advice and additional skin care services. I then realized that what I loved so much about skin care and wellness in general, was helping and creating relationships with people.
My hobbies/activities are hiking, cycling, knitting, reading, fishing, marathons for charity events and spending time with family.

Hi there, my name is Deanna Ritchie. I’m a Client Relations Specialist at Xanadu. I was born and raised in SW Florida, and relocated to Loveland, CO 7 years ago. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist since 2015, and over the years have fallen in love with aesthetics. I’m always fascinated with the ever-growing industry and love continuing to build upon my knowledge. I enjoy seeing clients so happy and making self-care a priority. I’m a mom of 2 little ones who keep me on my toes. When I’m not at the spa I enjoy quality family time, movie nights, music, walks with the kiddos, any time spent in nature, baking, trying new places to eat, and watching my littles grow and enjoy life. I’m so blessed with amazing family and friends, and the work I get to do!
I am a Colorado native who was born and raised right here in northern Colorado. I have been around the beauty industry my whole life with my mom being a hair stylist. I am super passionate about helping others that’s is why my path for farther education has lead me to Colorado state university to get my degrees in Agriculture Education And Animal Science.When I am not at the spa I spend my time with my family showing cattle and pigs, riding horses, spending time with my friends and playing with my dogs.
I have always had a love for beauty and cosmetics, since I was as young as I can remember I was always fixing up my hair, and watching my mom glam her self up. When I personally got into make up I felt a sense of confidence it brought me, and I had fun doing it. Because of my interests I always knew I wanted to work in the beauty industry. I particularly love the beauty industry because I get to watch the people around me feel confident and beautiful in their own skin. I took the steps to graduate high school early and my next goal is to get my aesthetician certification and then to continue my education by getting my associates degree in nursing so some day I can make people feel confident and beautiful as well.
If I am not at the spa, you can find me hanging out with my supportive family, playing with my adorable puppy, exploring nature, or getting my green thumb on in the garden.
