Canyon Ranch Signature Treatments
Give yourself plenty of time before your massage so you can enjoy the steam room, sauna or whirlpool. Warm muscles benefit most from bodywork. A warm shower just before your massage is relaxing and washes away any salts, minerals or chemicals that could clog pores when mixed with massage oils. Then, put on your robe and meet your therapist in the locker room waiting area.
Traditional and modern Eastern massage and bodywork techniques focus on the energetic pathways in the body known in China as meridians. Therapists are able to feel the energy known as chi, the life-force within the body. Some therapies include stretching and deep palming while others are extremely light, using holding techniques to calm and restore balance. Asian therapies are well suited for people with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and stress, and those experiencing symptoms of menopause.
Ayurveda is the traditional healing system of India – one of the world’s oldest. Like traditional Chinese practice, ayurveda is based on the idea of restoring balance to the whole person.
Luxurious products and soothing techniques bring lasting health and beauty benefits to your skin. These treatments exfoliate, replenish, moisturize, supply vital nutrients and leave your skin rejuvenated.
A regular systemic detoxification is important for everyone in order to keep the body running smoothly. Brown seaweeds, blended for their detoxifying action, are mixed into a fine paste and applied to the entire body. The skin absorbs active elements, with help from clay minerals, and the soothing heat of an exclusive soft-pack cocoon promotes perspiration and the elimination of toxins.
