The resort’s award-winning spa, Amara Spa, is also offering the limited-time 90-minute, “5 Element Balancing Facial” for $190. The journey will begin by floating on a cushion of warm water & connecting to the Earth by breathing in Sedona air that is purified by a warm glowing salt lamp to deepen relaxation. The facial is continued in a state of reflection with vibrational sounds of a vortex metal heart chakra singing bowl to promote healing from daily stress.
During the facial, experience a warm stone hand and arm massage complete with a luxurious hand treatment and a face massage incorporating the use of petrified wood carved stones to encourage renewal and regeneration for personal growth. Regroup back to the world with a light dusting of mineral make-up and a cup of refreshing energetically charged five element water. What a way to take a breather from the hectic holidays.
