Chakra Balancing in Las Vegas

Updated: Mar 16

Spiritual wellness, when traditional spa treatments aren't enough.

Let’s talk about spiritual wellness. In a not so distant past, symptoms and ailments were the leading indicator of a physiological disruption in the human body. It was pretty cut and dry. But then western medicine started looking a little closer at eastern medicine and lines began to blur.

The same is starting to happen with the mainstream spa industry, at the same prolonged and drawn out speed. Luckily, for the rest of us who believe there may just be something to the idea of treating the whole person, we can now experience metaphysical treatments at the spa…in Vegas.

Canyon Ranch Spa + Fitness, inside the Venetian Resort Las Vegas, is known for its luxurious treatments and products. After all, it’s the largest and one of the most well-known spas in the world. But they’ve started incorporating eastern medicine and holistic techniques to complement the cutting-edge technology they are known for. When we sat down with Canyon Ranch’s Vice President of Spa, Fitness & Beauty, Deirdre Strunk, the reasoning was quite simple.

“Think about the amount of people who come into Las Vegas and the people that come from all over the world, you have to really be able to speak to all of them.” It really came down to being able to offer a more well-rounded approach to wellness to people from all walks of life.

Think of it like this. Have you been feeling out of whack? Like something isn’t quite right but you can’t quite put your finger on it. If you’re a believer in energy and the ancient ideology of chakras, maybe you need to have them balanced. You may not have thought of it before because most spas aren’t including this on their list of services.

Are you experiencing chronic pain or arthritis? You may want to try acupuncture. This 2,500-year-old treatment found in Chinese medicine is the process of inserting several thin needles right into the top layer of the skin until you sort of look like a pin cushion. Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt nearly as bad as it sounds. The spa even offers energy healing sessions with a certified reiki master. If you hadn’t noticed yet, this is not your typical Vegas spa experience.
