Resort in Boynton Canyon near Sedona, Arizona
Enchantment Resort holds a very special place in
my heart. Fifteen years ago my husband arranged a surprise anniversary trip for
us to this 70-acre resort nestled in Boynton Canyon near Sedona, Arizona. (read
about that trip) We learned about vortexes; climbed the red canyon walls to
ancient Indian cliff dwellings; went on a hot balloon ride ending with a champagne
breakfast; rode horses; saw pictographs, petroglyphs and Indian ruins at Palatki;
watched the sun set on the red rocks each night at the resort's Yavapai Restaurant
and, most importantly, had our first massage at Enchantment's small amenity spa.
My massage was so profound that it literally changed my life. I was fortunate
that my first massage therapist instructed me how to receive a massage - to quiet
my mind, be in the present moment and to send my breath and energy to the part
of my body being massaged. I had never had those thoughts before. It felt a little
other-worldly. It ultimately helped me expand beyond my technical and engineering
identity and revealed the first part of my current mission - to share information
about spas with others. The first opportunity for this was as the creator and
"guide" for spas.about.com (1997-2003) and then as the owner and editor
of DiscoverSpas.com (2003-present).
Four Diamond Yavapai Restaurant at Enchantment Resort in Sedona Arizona offers
breathtaking views of Boynton Canyon through massive windows that provide a 180-degree
to Enchantment Resort to celebrate another anniversary five years later. We hiked
to the end of Boynton and Fay Canyons and up and down Oak Creek Canyon. We visited
Jerome. We watched the sun set on the red rocks each night at the resort's Yavapai
Restaurant and we had a new spa experience - watsu. The year was 2000 and Mii
amo, the destination spa at Enchantment Resort, was under construction and would
open the following year. The watsu pool used by the spa was off site. Again it
was a profound experience for me. When my son decided to become a massage therapist
a few years later, I encouraged him to study at the School
of Shiatsu and Massage in Harbin Hot Springs with Harold Dull, the creator
years later, my son has come to Sedona to take a course in Myofascial
Release from John Barnes to earn CEU credits for his continued certification
from the National Certification
Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB). He has two travel companions
for the week - my husband and I. After traveling all over the world, Sedona is
still one of our favorite places. We just couldn't pass up the opportunity to
return. And we couldn't imagine coming to Sedona and staying anywhere other than

You can clean your home, fruits, vegetables and meats with the same 'Aqueous Ozone' that spas and other companies use. Tersano's ‘Aqueous Ozone’ Cleaning Systemt is the world's most effective chemical-free cleaner. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ quickly oxidizes (kills) viruses and bacteria (including E.coli, Salmonella, MRSA, C-Difficil), mold, mildew and other contaminants on any item or surface - from toilets to bedspreads - before changing safely back into water and oxygen. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ is 3000 times faster and 50% more powerful than bleach and chlorine-based cleaners. It is 100% chemical free - no toxins, carcinogens or chemical residue - and safe for babies, pets and people with sensitive skin or those with strong reactions to normal cleaners. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. It sounds too good to be true, but the data show how effective the system works.
I'm a believer.
