Our Story

Moxie Med Spa is a full scale med spa located in Denver, CO. We specialize is services for men and women, head to toe.

Moxie started as a small two room waxing studio located in a small 600sf space hidden off the beaten path in a small, quiet neighborhood. Since our conception in 2006 we have persevered and have accomplished so many achievements we are so proud of. We have quadrupled in size, moving to a larger location to better serve the hundreds of men and women we see each month.

Growing from a staff of 2, to a full time team of 12 dedicated and talented women who each day show up to work in a industry we love, meeting wonderful new people each day, and creating long lasting relationships with our Moxie guests who become like family to us.Expanding from only being open 4-5 days a week of mainly just waxing services, to being open 7 days a week for 12 hours a day with a robust menu.

 

We are: a small business that is owned by one woman who has a passion in her heart and the ambition to make her dream come true.

We are: a small business that is trusted by long standing team members who believe in the vision that Moxie is driven by, team members who love being a part of forward thinking small business that allows them to be who they are, and know that they are valued for who they are, what they offer and knowing their voice is heard.

We are: a small business that rely on the communities of people who surround us to be successful. We are beyond grateful and honored that each month, thousands of people allow us the opportunity to earn not only their initial business, but also repeat business month after month, year after year.
