Why it’s a winning service: “The
uniqueness of the treatment is really what
draws our guests to it,” says Danielle
Morgan, Revive Spa manager. “It was
inspired by the healing rituals of the Native
American Indians from the Sonoran Desert
and even incorporates ‘sage smudging’
(used to cleanse the aura of negativity) as
well as real turquoise stones to strengthen
and balance the body and mind. The
indigenous ingredients and unique ritual
combine to create a specialized experience
that you will only find at Revive Spa.”

Products used: Turquoise Sage Desert
Salt Body Polish, Clay Body Mask, and
Massage Oil all by Body Bliss. “Body Bliss
Aromadesign formulated the Turquoise
Blue Sage products specifically for our spa
using indigenous products found here in the
Sonoran Desert,” says Morgan. “Body Bliss
is located in Sedona, only one and a half
hours from the spa. They are a wonderful
local resource for us.”

Marketing the service: There is an in-room
piece (for the hotel sleeping rooms)
