This spa package is inspired by the wisdom of the Native American people. Oklahoma tribes use various plants such as sage, lavender, and cedar, which are native to this region. Illness is seen by Native Americans as an attack of both the body and the spirit. It is important to address both the soul and the body to overcome illness in many Native Cultures.
One of the traditions is Smudging, a ceremony where plants such as sage, cedar and lavender are burned to cleanse bless and bring about positive energy. Sage is also used in teas to cure common ailments and as rubs for skin conditions.
Sweat lodges are another ceremony used to sweat out toxins and purify the soul. Medicine men would also place stones on various pressure points of the body during healing practices. These are just a few of the healing traditions that have been used for centuries. The Native American methods of healing have paved the way in medicine and are growing in popularity in spa’s all over the world.
We have created our Red Earth package to embrace the cultural traditions that have been used in Oklahoma by Native American tribes for centuries while combining this ancient wisdom with modern spa traditions. We use local plants, teas, and handmade scrubs to mentally and physically have a positive effect on your wellbeing.
This spa package was inspired by the ancient Roman Bathhouses. As early as 354 AD there were as many as 952 bathhouses varying in size? These ancient bathhouses were not only used as a place to clean but as a place of healing and a social gathering point for the communities.
The creation of the Aqueducts made it possible to make large baths for the entire community to bathe in. There would be an exercise area to work up a sweat then they would go to a warm heated pool or tub and finally a hot caldarium, similar to a steam room. This would be followed by a cool pool or cool room. After this series of cool and hot treatments, the bather would return to a room for a scrub and massage. The minerals in the waters along with the combination of heat and cold soon gained a reputation for curing various ailments such as rheumatism and arthritis.
We have created our Roman Bath package using mineral salts for our baths and a series of warm, hot, and cool treatments to give you the ultimate relaxing and healing experience. This package will relieve tension and muscle soreness while shedding dead skin leaving your skin silky smooth!
Aside from the many fascinating facts about the ancient Egyptian culture is the society’s emphasis on health, cleanliness, and beauty. The Egyptians were amongst the first to widely adopt the use of heated tubs.
As far back as 2000 BC Egyptians had established many elaborate bathhouses to gather with friends, exercise, eat, drink and bathe. These bathhouses included steam rooms and scrubs to thoroughly clean the skin after long days in the desert heat.
The bath traditionally included flowers and essential oils much like a bathhouse of today and massage therapy was considered a very important part of the health of the Egyptian culture.
