Finding Balance and Relaxation In Arizona   by Richard Rspad

With incredible warm weather year around, Arizona is a popular destination to relax. Throw in a twist of spirituality, shaken not stirred, and you have a very popular state indeed.

Finding Balance and Relaxation In Arizona

Miraval Life in Balance is one of the more popular spiritual relaxation destinations in Arizona. Much of this is due to the fact the facility has Dr. Andrew Weil, the wellness guru, on staff. This best selling author developed the wellness program at Miraval and leads workshops on a variety of subjects. As if that wasn't enough, Miraval also offers to not service for your every need, not to mention a food service that will leave you with a content smile on your face. Miraval Life in Balance is located at 5000 E. Via Estancia Miraval in Catalina, Arizona. You can contact Miraval at 800-363-0819 to make reservations. With the presences of Dr. Weil, make sure to plan well ahead.

Canyon Ranch SpaClub is typical of the Canyon Ranch brand. The facilities are designed to provide an upscale, but healthy, dimension to your visit. You can have a go at fully equipped gyms and fitness classes for a bit of exercise or just give in to pampering with delightful facials and body treatments. Canyon Ranch SpaClub is located at 8600 E. Rockcliff Road in Tucson, Arizona. You can call for reservations at 520-749-9655. Business travelers are welcome.

Radisson Fort McDowell Resort & Casino is more of a classic hotel. It offers spa services as well as pool and exercise facilities. The obvious advantage, however, is it does this in concert to the gambling and nightlife scene. If you enjoy placing a wager or dancing away the night, this might be the place. It is located at 10438 N. Fort McDowell Casino, in Scottsdale and can be reached at (480) 789-5300.

The Phoenician is luxury at its best. On par with the Ritz Carlton chain, the Phoenician offers high end enjoyment and relaxation. Walk out the door of your room onto a world class golf course that is home to PGA tournaments. Turn to the left, and you can lounge by the pool, take in a cigar bar or receive spa treatment that will make you melt. The best thing about the Phoenician is it is located in Scottsdale, which makes it easy to get to.

Arizona lodgings are plentiful. From Phoenix to Scottsdale to Flagstaff to Sedona, it sometimes seems the entire state is one big wellness zone. Give it a try and enjoy!
