Shop Local: A Holiday Gift Guide
Aspen is lit up like a sparkling jewel over the holidays with blitzed out store fronts and streets adorned in twinkling lights and pure white blanketed evergreen trees. With festive parties in local stores offering champagne, sugared treats and twinkling lights, the excitement of the holidays is in the air and bundled up scarf-clad shoppers seek treasures for their loved ones.
We wanted to enhance your shopping experience by getting you off your computer and into our locally owned stores, because to be able to support the locals who make our valley so diverse and wonderful, is a gift within itself.

CRYOTHERAPIES and INFRARED THERAPIES
Cryotherapy is at the forefront of healing technologies and has been adopted by elite athletes and pro teams for muscle and injury recovery. Cryotheraphy is becoming nationally well documented as being used for the daily management of pain, inflammation, energy, and stress related conditions, as well as a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles when used as a facial application.
Cryotherapy Gift Offers
1st try at wholebody cryotherapy session $50 ($85 Value). A single in cryotherapy for existing clients for $65
10 wholebody cryotherapy sessions for $500 ($650 Value)
Much like the sun, infrared therapy uses the healing power of light to purify, increase circulation, relieve unwanted pain, or even lose weight. If you’ve ever stepped outside on a warm, sunny day and instantly felt refreshed, you’ve experienced concept infrared therapy. Radiant, or infrared, heat warms the body directly, instead of warming the area around the body providing a host of benefits including a better relief of pain compared to topical and “less absorbent” heat.
Infrared Gift Offers
A single infrared sauna session for $40 ($55 Value)
