My Physical Therapy was from August to October 2013, for a Herniated Disc and arthritis in my lower back. In the beginning of this whole process, I started out with regular shooting back pain in my lower back due to a herniated disc. Any overexertion would only result in days of pain and sleepless nights. Kevin at Joint Effort Physical Therapy created a personalized exercise regime that allowed me to build the strength in my lower back as well as the rest of my body in order to support those back muscles. In the 2 months of physical therapy, I was able to bring my pain level down significantly, learn exercises and techniques that help in supporting my lower back so I don’t put more strain on it than needed. A week before my physical therapy was supposed to end, I was scheduled to move to a new house. I actually stated, “All of this work is going to go out the window when I do this move.” In using the techniques that I learned from Kevin, as well as the fact that the program he designed from me strengthened my core muscles, my move was successful and I recovered from my move with minimal pain, minus the typical soreness of muscles afterwards. Within a day after my move, my pain was gone and I was proven wrong. All of the work we had done did not go out the window; instead, it prepared my body for the stresses placed on it throughout the move. Throughout my therapy, Kevin went out of his way to make sure that I was able to obtain other medical treatments that would help me to relieve even more stress on my back and keep my pain level to a minimum. My condition will provide me with a lifetime gift of pain and aches, but with Kevin’s help, I now have a way to be able to minimize the number of major pain flare ups and possible further injury. While I’ll miss the massage therapy and the ultrasounds, I would have to say that my physical therapy was quite successful. Thanks Kevin!

I have to admit. Without the Groupon deal that promoted this spa, I probably would never have discovered it. Now, keep in mind that it's named Spa Petite for a reason. It's small. It doesn't have any of the fancy amenities that you might associate with a spa. Really, there's a massage room, a facial room, a small main reception, and a small bathroom. But what it DOES have that I've found many of the larger, more expensive places don't is amazing, talented people, who really love what they do. I was lucky enough to get both a deep tissue hot stone massage from Diane as well as a custom blended facial from Sherri. Now, I've had a LOT of massages and quite a few facials in my lifetime. I tend to use Groupon, Living Social, Ever Save, etc. deals to try out various therapists and estheticians because I'm pretty particular and have a hard time finding a good fit. I was completelly blown away at the quality of service I received at Spa Petite. Diane hit all the right places to work out the knots, wasn't afraid to go as deep as I'd liked, yet never once "missed" and went over bone, even when doing elbow work. That is highly unusual in my experience. Sherri not only managed to give me a wonderful, healthy glow, she also stemmed the development of a very large zit. You know, the one where you think "oh boy, that one is going to be a doozy and it just HAS to be right smack in the middle of my chin." In addition, I didn't suffer any further breakouts or redness like I sometimes do when I get a facial. She was also incredibly gentle during extractions. I cannot say enough good things about the quality of service at Spa Petite. I have discovered my little slice of heaven in Colorado Springs (and given that it's the home of Garden of the Gods, that says a lot!).
This place is flippin' fantastic! Tina is the best! I completely disagree with the negative review. Tina is friendly, professional and accomodating! She really takes an interest in who you are as a person. She always remembers your name, what has been going on in your life, and is welcoming. Fountain of Youth is always clean, relaxing and comfortable. I've been getting my eyebrows done by her for about a year and have also had facials. She explains everything as she goes, does a thorough skin evaluations and uses high quality products. She will text you and/or call you to offer you different days and times to fit your schedule. She has been able to get me into appointments with little notice and has been accomodating around my work schedule. If for some reason I have to cancel she is always nice and polite about it and lets me reschedule-that being said-she doesn't "squeeze" you in-meaning that when she is with a client-that is your time (which I love) and it seems like she treats all of her clients like that. She doesn't overbook herself and leave you waiting or rush you out the door to get the next person in (which is refreshing)! Your time for your facial, waxing, whatever-is YOUR time. I would highly recommend Tina and Fountain of Youth! The services are a great value too! So glad I found her!
