Red Mountain Resort Goes Zen With Its Alternative Medicine Sessions
Red Mountain Resort & Spa wants you to go the natural route. Considered "alternative" to many in the West, Eastern medicine techniques have long been used to prevent and heal various illnesses. This month, Red Mountain is championing various alt-approaches in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
While we don't advocate one mode of healing over another, we do support awareness-raising efforts, and Red Mountain's approach just happens to translate into zen-inducing programs for guests. Just listen to the music on their homepage for a taste of the vibe they're going for.
Since there's a certain contingent that's dubious of chanting "Om" and being pricked by chakra-balancing needles, Red Mountain's programs are meant to educate as much as they are soothe your stressed out nerves. You can sign up to be led in a session of Preventative Meditation, learn more about "A Chinese Medical Perspective on Healing From Cancer", sit in on a lecture about Prevention, Detection and Nutrition, or partake in a Healing Fire Ceremony with a certified shaman.
Still with us, skeptics? Remember, this is all for a good cause, and it's as much about empowerment and community building as it is delivering you a healthy dose of R&R. If you're a breast cancer survivor or are interested in learning more about dealing with health crises, then you can take part in a lecture about "Surviving Life's Curveballs", or connect to Red Mountain's survivor network over spa tapas on October 20th (spa treatments, bone density readings, and reflexology are all part of the bonding exercise).
Between this and the "Share Your Heart" package we reported on last week, hotels focused on connecting women and giving back seems to be the current trend, and one we can get behind.
