The Sedona Health Spa at The Collective Sedona Announces Its Grand Opening



The Sedona Health Spa, a full-service luxury spa in Sedona featuring Northern Arizona’s first salt therapy room, announced today its grand opening. Located in The Collective Sedona, Sedona’s newest lifestyle and cultural venue, the spa uses a modernized approach to traditional and non-traditional treatments utilizing western and eastern practices and offering a diverse range of services from massage therapy and reiki to facials and fitness classes. As one of Sedona’s only health and fitness destinations open to the public, this luxurious spa retreat is the ultimate health and beauty destination.

One of the top services offered at the Sedona Health Spa is salt therapy. In the Himalayan salt room guests can reap all the benefits of the salty beach air without exposing their skin to harmful UV rays. Salt therapy, otherwise known as Spelotherapy or Halotherapy, has been practiced in Eastern Europe for hundreds of years, and is proven to give the body a boost of essential minerals that aid in weight loss, detoxification, improving brain function, balancing hormones and treating allergies, acne and sensitive skin. The Salt Room treatments start at $45 and group rate packages, perfect for weddings and bridal parties, are available, as well.

“As one of the full-service spas in Sedona open to the public we are excited to offer luxury services at affordable, convenient prices,” said Heidi Kenney, director of operations at Sedona Health Spa. “From the pink crystal walls of The Salt Room to the gorgeous views of the red rocks, Sedona Health Spa provides an atmosphere of zen for the perfect escape.”

Sedona Health Spa’s leading estheticians, massage therapists, and wellness staff also offer waxing and tinting, custom massage therapy, personalized facials, acupuncture and reiki services. Waxing and tinting services start at $12 while other services start at $70.

In addition to luxury services, the spa also provides Zumba, Hip-hop, tai chi, yoga, and other fitness classes that are open to the public at per-class pricing. With an unobstructed view of the red rocks, the state-of-the-art fitness room provides an escape from reality and the perfect space to sweat away stress. Locker rooms equipped with showers and a personal pampering space gives guests a space to refresh, recharge and experience the convenience of a full-service facility.

“The spa is a great addition to the property that contributes to our mission of a building a community that benefits the health and wellness of all,” said Thomas McPherson, owner of The Collective Sedona. “We revitalized the property and now can revitalize the energy of others.”

The Collective: Signaling a Rebirth – By Tom Vitron, QCBN

Blending with the dramatic red color palette of Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte that grace the background, The Collective in the Village of Oak Creek is a revitalized multiuse gathering space where residents and visitors can shop, eat, celebrate and just enjoy the natural beauty.

Thomas MacPherson and his Fenix Private Capital Group purchased the property last year after selling another project in Phoenix. “It’s a nice center. I love Sedona, and it’s a great place to spend time and money to build a very significant cultural and community entity,” said MacPherson.

The Collective is located on the plaza formerly known as the Tequa.

“I’m really optimistic and excited to feel the new energy. It’s almost like a rebirth. New things are coming,” said Sedona restauranteur Lisa Dahl, whose businesses include Cucina Rustica. “I have been waiting 13 years for cultural significance at the property. That was part of the Tequa plan and one of the main reasons I thought it was a good move to come out to the plaza. Four groups have come and gone, and now we have Thomas,” said Dahl, who also ran a storefront in the plaza for a time called Aroma and calls MacPherson “a visionary.”

The Collective is intended to encompass a variety of food and beverage establishments, an eclectic collection of storefronts, from banking to yoga, art galleries and art installations, and indoor and outdoor event spaces for community and private events.

“It’s meant to be a place for everyone in The Village to go hang out, to have ideas and come up with new ideas,” said MacPherson. “Coming up, we’re holding a forum on the upcoming [Yavapai] county supervisor election, we have our farmers market running two three-day weekends a month, and we’ll have a Native American cultural center soon.” Recent events have included the kickoff of the Illuminate Film Festival and a summer moon dance.

Currently, he is focused on finishing Phase One of the property’s redevelopment, including finishing all deferred maintenance, programming all spaces and finishing build outs. Phase Two is focused on beautification, including an emphasis on sustainability; the property’s environmental impact is being lessened by the use of organic grass, and there are plans for a solar power array and a gray water system. This phase is also intended for organizational and operational improvements. Phase Three is a long-term effort to develop the dirt lot that remains on the internal southwest edge of the property.

Next to that space and behind Schoolhouse Restaurant (a tenant since February 2015 before MacPherson came in) is the grass courtyard utilized by the farmers market, the film festival and other events. Surrounding the courtyard are the interlinked Village Grind Coffee and Eatery and the soon-to-open J Wine Bistro, as well as an intriguing set of small, adjacent storefronts destined to be tasting rooms for local craft wine, beer, and spirit makers.

Dubbed “The Producers,” this space is currently occupied by two tenants: Four Eight Wineworks cooperative of Clarkdale, and Historic Brewing Company/Grand Canyon Wine Company based in Williams/Flagstaff. Southern Arizona winery Flying Leap Vineyards has also signed on to join the space soon, and more will follow.

“Everyone I talked to about taking part loves the space but has push backs,” MacPherson explained. “They wanted to see it when it’s done. Now that it’s done, brewers and winemakers are considerably more interested. The space will be more full by the end of summer and totally full by the end of the year,” he predicted.

MacPherson is seeking a Series 6 liquor license, making it easier for tasting-room and special-event guests to enjoy more freedom of mobility and use of the property’s common spaces.

Carole Kennelly, a part owner of Historic Brewing Company, echoes an enthusiasm for the vision renewed by MacPherson. “Historic is very excited to be on the ground level of such an exciting project. Wine, beer, food, art? What more can you ask for? We, at Historic, value collaboration and community. The Collective is the perfect place for like-minded businesses to be a part of something greater than themselves. We look forward to being a destination for both travelers and locals alike.”

Big Park Regional Coordinating Council president Amadeus Larew says he is energized to see this commercial space becoming a more complete business and community hub. “It’s an asset for both residents and visitors to the Verde Valley,” he said.

The 6.15-acre, 54,000-square-foot Tequa Plaza originally opened in 2002 on the south end of The Village of Oak Creek and was negatively impacted by the economic downturn in 2008. Now, business owners say the future looks bright.
