Give the Gift of Self-Care at Red Mountain Resort

Press release

December 6, 2017

Situated in the center of Southwestern Utah’s magnificent red rock country, Red Mountain Resort encourages guests to give the gift of self-care this holiday season. With the newly launched Self Care Essential Retreat, rejuvenation and relaxation are only one click away. A perfect gift for the guest seeking relaxation, stress relief, a personal reset, or to dive deep and discover the healing wisdom of one’s own body.

Thoughtfully designed by the award-winning Sagestone Spa, this four-day, three-night retreat provides guests with a deeply immersive spa experience to nourish the body and soul. A collection of five treatment therapies selected to be experienced in a specific order with the benefits of each treatment building upon each other, leaving guests restored and renewed.

This retreat is recommended as a solo experience for guests to achieve maximum rest and reflection by focusing solely on their own needs. The Self Care Essential Retreat includes all the components of the Essential Retreat including daily morning guided hikes, three healthy gourmet meals daily, fitness and wellness activities plus:

  • Himalayan Salt Stone Massage – ‘To replenish and ground’

Heated Himalayan salt stones are utilized in this first treatment to relax the mind and remove tension from the body. Through the salt stones, 84 trace minerals are absorbed by the skin, re-mineralizing the body.  During which negative ions will balance out the flood of positive ions that are prominent in modern life, such as our overuse of electronic devices. The body is left grounded, relaxed and balanced allowing for deep sleep and a sense of well-being. This introductory treatment perfectly sets the tone for the remaining treatments. (75 minutes)

  • Vibrational Sound Therapy – ‘To profoundly relax’

This sensory spa experience plays specialty, handcrafted Himalayan singing bowls on and around the body. Audible sounds echo through the mind and soft vibrations ripple through the body to induce a state of absolute serenity, profound relaxation, increased vitality and restored balance. The treatment begins with a foot soak & scrub and a cup of tea. This starts the body’s transition into a relaxed state, ready to absorb the sound therapy. (80 minutes)

  • Cranial Sacral Therapy – ‘To free muscular blockages and calm the mind’

The third treatment continues to shift the body’s stuck patterns or memories that become stuck in the brain and manifest in the body as symptoms like pain, fear, panic and anxiety, as well as any physical or metaphysical restrictions. This unique technique utilizes a very gentle, meditative touch to the bones of the skull and pelvis and can include unwinding of the fascia (connecting tissue). A deeply relaxing experience known to produce profound results in self-reflection. (50 minutes)

  • Table Thai Yoga Massage – ‘Stretches and renews tense muscles’    

This massage will expand and open the body with supported stretches, firm compressions along the energy meridians and energy balancing. Table Thai Yoga takes pressure off the joints and lengthens tense muscles in a way that a traditional massage cannot achieve. (50 minutes)

  • Red Mountain Revitalizer – ‘Signature treatment to complete the experience’    

The final treatment begins with a skin softening, prickly pear sugar scrub. Then, guests are invited to melt in a Vichy shower in which seven shower heads cascade down to add to the relaxation of a full body massage. Lastly, a restorative scalp and facial massage complete this ultimate body treatment to nurture, relax and revitalize the body and soul and empowering guests to return to everyday life. (75 minutes)

  • Plus, a gift from Sagestone Spa & Salon

Two re-mineralizing sea bath sachets are gifted upon guest’s arrival to compliment the spa treatments.  One to use the first night to recover from travel and the second to use before guests leave to support the body through the retreat. 

The Self Care Essential Retreat is a four-day, three-night getaway with rates starting at $1,699 per person in deluxe accommodations. Upgrades to a luxury villa available for an additional $150 per person. Rates do not include spa gratuities or lodging taxes.
