When she is not focusing her energy on her clients at Athena Salon, Spa and Wellness, Rohleder is interested in anything outdoors. A true Coloradoan, she enjoys hiking, exercising and playing with her yellow lab.

Rohleder is currently accepting new clients at Athena and can be contacted via their Web site at www.spaathena.com or by calling 970-223-0273.

Athena Salon Offering Workshop to Improve Skin’s Vitality

WINDSOR, CO–Apr 29, 2013 – Northern Colorado’s Athena Salon, Spa and Wellness is offering clients and guests a unique experience to learn how to improve their skin’s vitality.

Athena will be hosting a hands-on class, educating students about criteria to properly cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize their skin. The workshop will concentrate on using Eminence, a handmade organic skin care line from Hungary, and students can expect to learn the benefits of using natural, organic products, rather than harsh, over-the-counter and pharmaceutical brands that contain chemicals, parabens and sulfates.

The Eminence Treatment Workshop will take place on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at the Athena location at 7791 Highland Meadows Parkway in Windsor, Colorado, 80528.Guests can choose from four different class times; classes are offered at 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., or 3 p.m.

Seating is limited so guests are asked to call Athena at 970-223-0273 to reserve a spot.There is a reservation fee of $10 that can be applied to purchase, and guests will receive a complimentary item if they bring a friend.

Athena Salon, Spa and Wellness focuses on using organic and natural treatments as an alternative to harsh chemicals. Eminence Organics is the skin care line carried by Athena and will be used during the workshop. “Eminence has come out with incredible products that are active and show amazing results,” said Athena owner, Angela Lund. “This skin care line is a healthy option for the skin and body but also for the environment.”

“We want to educate guests on the benefits of this line,” she said. “There is a misconception that organic products are not as active as pharmaceutical products, but Eminence has developed an incredible line with their natural retinol alternative being 8% more active than pharmaceutical retinol and Eminence’s natural retinol alternative has no negative side effects.”

In November 2011, Athena Salon, Spa and Wellness was awarded the “Eminence Green Spa Certificate.” This award is given to those who actively support the green movement and meet criteria such as recycling, using less energy, and using biodegradable options instead chemical based products.

Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness Named Only Green Spa and Salon in Northern Colorado

 

Windsor, Colo., May 24, 2012, — Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness, a leading spa and salon located in between the Windsor and Fort Collins, Colorado communities, has recently been named the only Eminence Organics© Green Spa in the northern Colorado area. Eminence© only gives this distinction to the spa and salon that meets a list of certain criteria including: choosing reusable and biodegradable products, placing recycling bins with labels next to trash cans, and using non-toxic cleaning supplies over harmful chemicals. The other Eminence© Organics Green Spa facilities in Colorado are located in Aurora, Colorado Springs, Steamboat Springs, and Keystone.

The Vancouver, British Columbia based Eminence© initiated the Green Spa certificate program to reward the spas that support the green movement. They also have hopes that the program will inspire and motivate other spas. Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness is thrilled to be a certified Green Spa and a partner of the Eminence© Organic Skin Care line. Athena is dedicated to providing quality hair, skin, massage, waxing, spray tan and nail professionals and services, while also using natural and organic products that are good for the earth and their clients’ health. Their ultimate goal is to get their customers looking and feeling their absolute best in a manner that preserves and protects the environment.

Eminence© Green Spa Program certification requires spas to choose reusable products instead of paper and plastic utensils, place settings, and cups. They also require that the recycling bins that are placed next to trash cans have clearly marked signs that direct users to choose the correct receptacle. In addition, the skin care line hopes that their certified programs use organic and biodegradable cleaning products as a healthy alternative to chemical-based products. The certified spas must use low amounts of energy. Eminence© Organic Skin Care has provided eco-friendly and organic products to the best spa locations for over 50 years—long before the “green” movement began. Their transparent practices include recognizing the best spa facilities for green practices, choosing ingredients that are farmed sustainably, and packaging for their products in earth-friendly materials.

Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness is sought-out for their miraculous facials that use Eminence© products. The Athena Signature Facial is customized specifically for each client–a best spa practice.

Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness Now Offering South Seas Spray Tan

 

WINDSOR, Colo., April 26, 2012 – Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness, a Windsor/ Fort Collins spa, is excited announce that they are now starting to offer South Seas Spray Tan services. With spring well underway and summer just around the corner, it’s time to get a beautiful bronze glow without the harmful effects of UV radiation. An introductory special of $25 for a South Seas tan is available through April.

South Seas a nationally-recognized and acclaimed DHA-based spray tan. Applied at the day spa by trained technicians, South Seas products give a mahogany tan that develops over the course a few hours. Their products are paraben-free and were voted “Best of Beauty” by Allure magazine three years in a row.

Traditional tanning, be it outside or in a tanning bed, requires unsafe amounts of UV exposure to get a beautiful glow, causing premature aging, age spots and risking the development of skin cancer. UV radiation actually penetrates skin’s cells and damages or mutates cell DNA. Many spray-on tans, while marginally safer than the sun, contain potentially dangerous chemicals such as parabens. Parabens can mimic estrogen in the body, possibly leading to cancer.

South Seas products are paraben-free and come in traditional or all-natural selections. Add a dry brush exfoliation for the most even tan possible, and add a shimmer oil treatment for an instant glow while your tan develops. Leave the spa not only confident in your choice of product but looking as radiant as you feel.

Enjoy a South Seas tan alone or in addition to one of Athena’s wonderful spa packages. Athena’s spa packages include massages, manicures & pedicures, body scrubs, hot towel treatments and facials for the full day spa experience. Salon services are also available for hair & nails, and Athena is proud to be a Fort Collins spa retailer for Eminence Organic Skin Care, Farm House Fresh body care & Eufora hair care products.

Athena Salon, Spa & Wellness is devoted to offering organic, Earth-friendly day spa products & services. Products that are safe for the planet are also safer and more nourishing for you. Athena is the only Fort Collins spa to have been awarded the Éminence Green Spa Certificate, a recognition of green initiatives such as using less energy, fewer chemical-based products, recycling and other green choices.
