Ocean Mesa Activities

Ocean Mesa Spa Treatment Massages
Our reception staff will guide you to the spa treatment that most suits you. Licensed professionals will leave you feeling pampered and relaxed! Imagine being this close to nature and feeling this close to absolute bliss.
This signature massage treatment takes inspiration from traditional Swedish style massage. In other words, expect continuous flowing strokes on oiled skin, creating a restorative, nurturing effect. Considered the "gold standard" of treatments.
$125 for 55 minutes
$165 for 85 minutes
Hot Stone Massage
For the ultimate in relaxation and healing, smooth heated river stones are carefully placed and moved across your well-oiled body. The warmth of the stones add an idyllic sense of comfort for the ultimate pampered feeling.
$170 for 85 minutes
Certainly not your typical spa treatment... you remain clothed while treatment is conducted laying on a futon. The therapists use their feet and body weight to produce a series of deep, broadly applied compressions. This unique treatment is suggested for those who crave a deeper style of balanced bodywork; especially welcomed after long hikes or strenuous fitness to ease sore muscles.
$125 for 55 minutes
$165 for 85 minutes
Any of the above treatments can be combined with a 30 minute treatment addition at $70 each.
Trigger Point Therapy - specifically focused to address knotted tension & circulation blocks which disrupt normal muscle function
Canyon Herbal Scalp Massage - essential oils of lavender, rosemary & sage with Jojoba oil for scalp stimulation
Canyon Foot Massage & Salt Scrub - a total foot rejuvenation, reflexology and exfoliation, which energizes & softens tired feet
