Rejuvenate In Basalt

Colorado Getaway

If I have learned anything over the last year, it is to take care of myself, ask for help, and to say no. A couple of weeks, I needed some "me" time. I needed a quick fix to exhaustion...... and Aspen was the answer. I stayed at the new hotel Element (Basalt - Aspen). It is perfectly located in Willits neighborhood of Basalt. It was easy walking distance to everything this quaint town has to offer��.coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques, day spas. The hotel offers complimentary bikes, too! When I checked in and heard about the complimentary cocktail hour and breakfast, I was already feeling relaxed. I checked in around 3pm, got settled, and enjoyed a glass of wine at The Element�s cocktail hour. Then I was off to a 5:30 salt therapy yoga class at Fahrenheit Body Spa (yes, I had wine before I yoga, don�t judge!) Pure salt is diffused into the air to breathe during the yoga class. This was my first time doing salt therapy so I had many questions. Here are the benefits to Salt Therapy: Improves Respiratory Health
  • Reduces airways inflammation
  • Helps clear excess mucus
  • Helps clear pollen, pollutants, toxins, and viral agents from lungs and nasal tract
  • Reduces symptoms of allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues
Improves Skin Health
  • Soothes itchy skin
  • Assists healing of small fissures and scratches
  • Reduces edema on post-surgical scars
  • Reduces inflammation of the skin
Following yoga, I received a massage at Fahrenheit Spa. One of the best massages I have ever gotten! The masseuse was trained with an eastern massage therapy philosophy. I felt that it was more result-oriented than other massages that I have gotten. It was 5 1/2 hours in to my �me� time and I was already feeling like myself again. I grabbed a dinner to-go at an adorable crepe restaurant called Market Street Kitchen right outside the hotel. The next day I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast at the hotel and relaxed (and detoxed) for 45 minutes in a infrared sauna at Fahrenheit Body Spa. Then lunch with a friend in Aspen before I departed back to Breckenridge. It was 24 hours of renewing, rejuvenating, and relaxing. Life gets hard and you need take a break. This 24 hours in Basalt made me feel like �me� again.
