I interspersed intense bursts of activity with downtime at the spa, the highlight of which was a Vasudhara massage, a new Miraval exclusive treatment. I was given an eye mask and flotation device to wear for the ai-style massage, which was carried out in a heated pool. e feeling of weightlessness in the darkness was such an alien sensation at first, but once I gave myself over to the experience, it was absolutely amazing; the buoyancy allowed for a greater range-of-motion to benefit from the ai stretching techniques. e 30,000 square-foot spa is a temple to self-care with 23 indoor and six outdoor treatment rooms, saunas, steam rooms, an outdoor sea salt pool and hot tub, a café, a quiet relaxation room, and indoor and outdoor lounge spaces. A comprehensive menu of face and body treatments meld current technology with ancient healing rituals. Miraval's most famous life coach and creator of the Miraval Equine Experience is Wyatt Webb, who has been leading equine-focused therapeutic workshops for people of all ages for nearly three decades. His "It's Not About the Horse" session left me in awe of his miraculous ability to read someone's mind through their body language. Engaging, real, and sometimes raw, Webb doesn't mince words when doling out insight and advice. I came to Miraval as a newbie to the whole self-care thing, and I left wishing I would have discovered it a decade ago. sl Nightly rates at Miraval Arizona start at $529/person.
