Health is important and one of my favorite ways to stay healthy is to get plenty of rest and relaxation. A fabulous spa treatment
goes a long way toward your mental and physical wellness. I think everyone should consider the restorative effects a spa visit can bring. Today I’m sharing a list of some great spa retreats in Arizona.
The Spa at Camelback Inn
Last year I had a lovely girls weekend at the Camelback Inn Resort with my friend Becca. It was my first experience with a body wrap, my preferred spa treatment is a massage but the wrap was great. Their Desert Honey Nectar wrap is relaxing like a massage but also super hydrating which my parched desert chica skin needed! Afterwards I was able to chat with my friend while we had pedicures done. Mixing friends and relaxation is an excellent approach to wellness.
Canyon Ranch in Tucson
Canyon Ranch is a must on my Tucson bucket list. I’m a native Tucsonan, how could I not try one of the most highly rated spas in the whole country!! My friend Becca had a chance to experience Canyon Ranch and claims it’s the BEST massage she’s ever had!
Well & Being Spa at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess
I’ve stayed ate the a Fairmont Scottsdale Princess a few times and love the resort overall, it’s a fun place to stay with the family. On a separate visit without the kids, I splurged on a Thai Massage the Well & Being Spa. The massage itself was unique for me since I usually go for a typical massage but I enjoyed it. What I loved the most overall though was the spa facility. The Well & Being Spa has the friendliest and most comfortable spa facility I’ve ever been to. My regret was I didn’t schedule a full day to enjoy the amenities. I guess that just means I HAVE to go back. 😉 And you don’t have to take my word for it, a fellow Traveling Mom also loved the Well & Being Spa.
Tocasierra Spa at Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort
I haven’t had a chance to experience the Tocasierra Spa yet but I did have a fun mom retreat at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak last year. They have casitas on site, perfect for a girls weekend with a large group of friends. The Tocasierra Signature Hot Oil Massage sounds amazing and will be a priority on my next stay at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak.
Eforia Spa at Hilton Sedona
Beautiful and spiritual comes to mind when I hear someone mention Sedona. Many people head to Sedona to relax and connect with nature. The Eforia Spa at the Hilton Sedona is a perfect spa retreat to do just that. Their signature 90 minute Full Circle Massage and it was AHHHHH-mazing and totally fits the relax and connect with nature bill. This massage is inspired by the teachings of the Four Directions and is meant to touch the four aspects of your being (Mind, Body, Heart and Spirit). I think it’s been my favorite massage so far, I’m not sure if it was the extra 30 minutes (I almost always book 60 minutes) or the unique design of the treatment.
For me a spa visit is all about balance and slowing down. I find myself over-scheduled or pulled in three different directs often and setting aside scheduled time to just stop and reconnect with my body does wonders on my stress level and overall health. Everyone needs a little help maintaining that balance.
