Transform your lifestyle, mentally and physically.
Seeking feel-good, good-for-us vacations, head to Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona, and discover terrific spa food plus dozens of activities daily. To learn strategies for living healthier, Life Management Program can help you reach your goals. This intimate and personalized lifestyle campaigncaters to those with a strong interest in adapting a wellness lifestyle. Like a week-long college course (with better food, facilities and spa services) it could be called "Wellness 101: Integrative Approaches to Good Health." Other programs focus on weight loss, nutrition, metaphysical and more.
Begin your day with walking on the lush 150-acre, cactus-filled campus passing fountains and landscaped gardens. Meals, activities and educational sessions took place within The Life Enhancement Center, a wellness facility with its own dining and meeting rooms, gyms and locker rooms, massage facilities plus a lounge, patio, meditation garden and a nearby swimming pool. The Ranch’s indoor aquatic center with a cross-training pool and a watsu pool is available for both watsu — the unique one-on-one, in-water stretching and swirling experience — and aquatic therapy.
While no alcohol is served or sold (and cigarette smoking is allowed only in designated outdoor spaces), each meal featured tasty, heart-healthy spa cuisine including popular items such as chili, pizzas and burgers. Items are served in appropriate portions — a key to weight control — and with calories, fat and fiber grams listed on the menu. In addition to daily fitness activities and terrific cooking class luncheons, there are several expert-led workshops that focus on topics such as nutrition, vitamin supplements and sleep deprivation.
The all-inclusive LEP rate offers an allowance towards individual spa treatments, sports and integrative wellness services conducted by health experts. These professionals guide guests with personal issues: Acupuncturists, Behavioral Health Therapists, Chiropractors, Dermatologists and Exercise Physiologists, Nutritionists and even Podiatrists. Plus, there's medical testing on site and the availability of unrushed, 50 minute (or longer) consultations with board-certified physicians. Daily rates include meals, activities and lectures plus accommodations in southwestern casitas; some are smallish, others deluxe, and there’s a grand, three bedroom private home.
