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) that has photos and the description of the Turquoise Ritual.
