If you're vacationing in Tucson and in need of some relaxation, head to The Spa at the Omni Tucson National for its massages. The spa uses its Arizona locale, next to the towering Santa Catalina Mountains, to its advantage and offers some unique desert-related massages. Of course, you'll find Swedish, deep tissue and signature aromatherapy options on the menu. The prenatal massage is a well-deserved gift for a mother-to-be, and the Revitalizer is a slightly different take on a basic aromatherapy treatment with hot essential oil compresses and a focus on the lymphatic system. The arnica intensive massage is designed for athletes with specific aches and pains. Though fairly common, these treatments are well executed.
For something out of the ordinary, try the Desert Mist Hot Stones or the Desert Dew massage — both hydrate the skin, as the sun's rays can be brutal. The Sun Kissed Massage uses aloe and cucumber to soothe sunburns. But skin isn't the only part of your body that falls victim to the harsh desert sun; hair is negatively affected as well. The Desert Rescue Hair And Scalp Massage aims to restore your healthy locks.
In case you want to take your treatment elsewhere, massages can be arranged in your room at Omni Tucson National Resort or poolside at Streetwater Terrace, where you can get some more of that desert sun.
