The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain focuses on eco-holistic massages and treatments. The Hohokam Indigo Herbal Poultice treatment uses a steamed herbal poultice and Thai massage techniques to treat muscle pain. Another unique massage is the Hohokam Stone Massage, which incorporates basalt stones that are rich in minerals. The stone massage is recommended for those with muscle aches and pains. Other kneading treatments include the four-hand massage and reflexology. For a great all-in-one treatment at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa, try Embracing Your Elements, the spa’s signature therapy. First, your therapist will ask questions to tailor the 90-minute treatment around your particular element (water, earth, wood, metal or fire). The appropriate massage follows — plus there’s a healing aromatherapy soak, skin-brushing treatment, mask and scalp rub. Your energy will no doubt be in perfect balance afterward.
