Spas of Glenwood Springs: Providence Apothecary

Providence Apothecary, located at 713 Cooper Ave., is fittingly tucked in Glenwood Springs’ historic downtown. Even though the interior is open and modern, the floor-to-ceiling shelving stocked with glass jars of dried herbs, teas and tinctures evokes an Old World ambiance that invites visitors to linger and explore.

Owner Chrissy Manes is a certified herbalist and holistic healthcare practitioner, together with her husband John Lee, the duo and their staff of therapists offers a variety of healing services including herbal consultations, massage, acupuncture and Reiki. 

Providence Apothecary provides therapeutic bodywork such as Swedish and deep tissue massage, hot stone massage and lymphatic drainage. Depending upon the client’s needs, practitioners will use a variety of techniques during massage treatment including Shiatsu, acupressure, trigger point, reflexology and aromatherapy. Some massage therapists on staff have a pediatric focus and experience working with children who may suffer from ailments including chronic pain and cancer. 

In addition to massage, Providence Apothecary offers educational classes that cover a wide variety of topics, from making your own herbal tinctures and medicine to meditation and aromatherapy. Chrissy and John teach many of the classes themselves, especially the ones about herbal remedies, but they also bring in outside experts to speak on holistic health subjects. 

Treatment to try. A one-hour Lymphatic Drainage massage at Providence Apothecary will stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid and help detoxify and improve the body’s immune response.
