Splendor Mountain Spa

Splendor Mountain Spa

Splendor Mountain Spa was opened in 1998 by me, Susan Wilmot. I became enthralled with the Watsu technique, and knew that this is something really unique and worth while I could share with others. Finding an adequate pool is harder than you’d expect, but I am so very fortunate to have found my sweet home, such a premium in this Rocky Mountain, Hot Spring community. In 2004 both Rebekah Blodgett, my daughter and Ruth Sears, my sister joined the team. The Spa’s vitality has grown exponentially ever since. Ruth brings her talent as a highly skilled massage therapist, herbologist, and gardener extraordinaire. Her twelve years prior were spent in Ecuador. Her Spanish is fluent and she gets lovely packages from time to time, from Ecuador containing artisan goods which she sells here. Rebekah has taken over the duties of Spa Manager. She handles the bookkeeping, appointments, web design, and as a licensed esthetician is our waxer and skin care specialist. Primary importance in creating this space is providing a place where we could use our skills in a creative setting that honors you, our client and the dedicated work we do. Our emphasis is about giving the highest quality sessions possible, in a peaceful, nurturing and non-hurried setting. In short, what we provide is what we’d want to encounter ourselves. We honor that you’ve taken this time for yourself, and allocated the funds to do something extra special for your self. Our commitment is to offer you 100% guaranteed satisfaction in the treatments we offer.

Watsu  pool at Splendor Mountain Spa



Here we’ve installed a 3000 gallon private therapy pool that is used exclusively for Watsu and Waterdance sessions. The precious water we use is filtered 24 hours a day, moving constantly which assures clean sparkling healing water. We also honor the water as a vital entity in the healing process through the use of potentized Bach Flower Remedies added with mindfulness to our pool. We’ve added a Far-Infrared Sauna to our studio along with 4 treatment rooms equipped with bars for Ashiatsu, A Steamy Wonder Canopy for luxurious steaming, and high quality essential oils to further the beneficial qualities of your sessions. Sanitas and Noevir, two world class skin care lines, are our skin care products used in our facials and body treatments. We’ve harvested the basalt stones that are used in our Heated River Rock Massage, caring for them meticulously between each treatment. Our roomy Couples Suite is pleasing to your senses with a warm fire place in the winter and a cool lower level in the summer decorated in lovely colors with two comfortable tables side by side.

Susan out for a hike



Susan has been practicing massage since 1992. In 1996 she discovered the wonderous world of Watsu and knew that it would be an integral part of her work, and she set out to discover a place to practice it. After numerous attempts to find a suitable pool, including trying at the Hot Springs, she found the property here on Maple Street in 1998, and the rest as they say is history.

Susan recently bought property in Cedaredge and now spends half of her time there with her partner Steve Jueneman. They work on and enjoy many projects together. With their vegetable garden, many flower beds, and bird sanctuary they keep themselves busy. Cedaredge also houses Steve's recording studio and he is always working on new music.

Ruth & Punkin out for a romp



After moving back to the states from Ecuador in 2004, Ruth came to Glenwood Springs to join her sister Susan at Splendor Mountain Spa. Being a massage therapist for over 20 years in two different countries has allowed Ruth to truly perfect her technique!

Rebekah moxing the lawn



Susan's daughter Rebekah has been working at the spa since Spring 2004 as the spa manager. In 2006 she went to the Glenwood Beauty Academy and recieved her Esthetician's License. She now does all the waxing and esthetic facials at Splendor Mountain Spa. She is also the person who designed and runs this website
