Ska:na: Spa at Turning Stone Resort Offers New Services and Amenities Ideal for a Soothing and Tranquil Experience

Summer is in full swing – for many, summer comes with a desire to focus on health and wellness. For hardworking women, the desire to refresh and renew is more than skin deep; health and total relaxation translate to a peace of mind that transcends all areas – personal, professional and emotional. Ska:ná: Spa, the award-winning spa at Turning Stone Resort Casino, has rolled out a variety of services and amenities to provide total mind-body refreshment.

There are few things better for a tired, worn-down body than a stone massage. Ska:ná: Spa has added powerful Himalayan pink salts to their hot stone massage treatment, providing both relaxation and detoxifying benefits.

The use of pink Himalayan salt stones, as opposed to standard black basalts, has been shown to reduce inflammation, reduce muscle cramps by improving hydration, aid in balancing blood sugar and induce deep relaxation. With the 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements, mined from the Himalayan Mountains, Ska:ná: Spa’s new Himalayan Salt Stone Massage soothes tired muscles and releases tension, reduces inflammation, balances the central nervous system, nourishes depleted cells in the body, stimulates circulation and improves the quality and length of sleep.

The treatment itself begins in one of Ska:ná: Spa’s tranquil treatment rooms, each designed with Oneida Indian-touches, including a unique dreamcatcher and native-inspired music. Warmed Himalayan salt stones are massaged over the body in a specific sequence to balance the body’s meridians, or energy channels. As the salt stones heat, negative ions are released into the air, which has been shown to reduce oxidative stress on the body. Drawing upon traditional Chinese medicine therapy, the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage grounds and balances the body's electromagnetic field, and the pressure, motion, and thermal effects used during the treatment work to replenish nutrients in the connective tissue, reducing muscle tension, while creating deep relaxation.

If stress reduction is the goal, Ska:ná: Spa also now offers a treatment to refocus energy and boost productivity for working women. Reiki is a Japanese healing art, which relies on the ancient principles of energy transfer. Using touch, a trained Reiki therapist activates the body’s natural healing process, restoring physical and emotional well-being, and creating a renewed sense of clarity and focus.

Before and after treatments, Ska:ná: Spa guests are given full-day access to the spa, including the soothing mineral pools, steam room, sauna, hot tubs and more. While enjoying a day of pampering, guests can also order a healthy and delicious meal from Ska:ná: Spa café’s new menu. The café, located in the main waiting area of the spa, allows the healing effects of the treatments to continue with nourishing and delicious food.

Featuring a fully customizable menu, guests can select a nutritious entrée, three sides, a dessert and a beverage for only $15, which includes tax and gratuity. Each item is made to order by the staff at Wildflowers, the resort’s AAA Four-Diamond rated restaurant. Options include heart-healthy smoked salmon, quinoa salad, orange-garlic kale chips, fresh berries, and more. The menu also highlights options for those who require gluten-free options and offers something for every dietary restriction, from meat-free to dairy-free. Calorie and macronutrient counts are also provided, making building a truly healthy meal simple.

Relaxation, longevity and a refreshed sense of focus can go a long way towards creating mind-body wellness, especially for the working woman. Juggling personal and professional tasks is never an easy feat, but staying healthy and achieving a sense of calm can make all the difference mentally. Local spa treatments and amenities, like those offered at Ska:ná: Spa, can boost productivity, elevate mood and create deeper relaxation, while nourishing the body to operate at its very best.
