Spa City- Sedona

Arizona is famous for its light, its breathtaking beauty and Sedona- the spa city. The allure is transcendent. Tucked away in the Oak Creek Canyon; the scabrous yellow and red cliffs forming a sharp contrast to the lush green valley that slices through them. This picturesque city takes you to a completely new level. Rated as America’s most beautiful destination to watch the sunrise and set, which many painters and sculptors call home.

Named after the lady Sedona Schnebly, one of the very few families that lived here in the early 20th Century, Sedona derives its popularity as a place of spiritual, metaphysical and magnetic energy. The New Age populace has found areas where the Earth’s magnetism is said to have special properties. Called Vortexes, the sites are believed to impart a feeling of well-being and connectedness. These are located at Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Boynton Canyon, and Schnebly Hill.

Not quite surprising though this magical land is world famous for its spa experience. What if you come for a vacation and experience changes that are more than skin deep. Many resorts offer a range of flamboyant services. There is nothing called ordinary here. You not only revitalize your body with hot stones, blue-corn scrubs, meditation grottoes and crystals; you actually end up relaxing your soul- that’s the charm of Sedona.

Whether you want to awe at the spectacular 280-plus-acre Red Rock State Park or just rekindle spirituality at Chapel of the Holy Cross, a shrine constructed between two sandstone buttes, Sedona is as relaxing as it is rejuvenating.

Home to the Anasazi, Hohokam, Hopi, and Sinagua through the centuries, one can see the reminiscent of the bygone era in the abandoned pueblos, evocative petroglyphs, and ancient irrigation ditches.

The desert setting may lead one to believe it to be as a scorching oven, but the city boasts of relatively cooler temperatures; an year round comfort at 74 degree F. It is a haven for young, old and savvy artists. Physical spa treatments, emotional healing, spiritual awakening, and a trip to Sedona!
