Truth be told, I’ve never met a massage I didn’t like. The Sage Springs Spa in Sunriver Resort is no exception. Walking into the Central Oregon club and day spa, guests and members are immediately embraced in the spirit of the high desert region with its massive stone fireplace in the lobby, high beamed ceilings and rock pillars by the reception area. Once ushered into the Sage Springs Spa, the smell of indigenous, natural and organic products fill your senses, while water features and subtle music play in the background. Open year round, the two story building includes the first floor day spa, as well as an indoor fitness center, featuring three tennis courts, state-of-the art conditioning center and three lane lap pool.
Make sure to arrive early to your spa treatment to fully enjoy the steam room and hot tub, as they are especially inviting for relaxing sore muscles after a day of horseback riding, river rafting, skiing or outdoor adventure in Central Oregon.
Sage Springs Spa Facilities
Once inside Sage Springs Spa, your nose will guide you to the day spa with its aromatherapy scents. Spa guests are shown to the locker room and provided with a private locker, plush robe and spa slippers. From here guest may relax in the steam room, hydrotherapy spa or chill in the lounge with a hot cup of tea or lemon water.
Sage Springs Spa Treatments
From sun up to sun down, there is a Sage Springs Experience for everything your heart desires. Wake up tired skin with a scrub, try a Sunriver body wrap, hot stone massage or Sage Springs pedicure.
My 50-minute Gemstone Energy Massage rocked. My therapist, Debbie Simmons, introduced me to three ISUN gemstone massage oils to choose from. While the Rose Quartz Crystal energy supposedly opens the heart and elevates the spirit, the Amethyst Quartz Crystal is said to have calming and purifying benefits. I opted for the garnet gemstone, noted for giving strength to the body and grounding the nervous system. Personally, I liked the garnet smell and who am I to pass up on extra strength for my body?
According to Sage Springs Spa Esthetician Debbie Simmons, Isun skincare founder Bunnie Gulick, “adds the best ingredients, with gemstone infused in small batches to absorb the energy of the crystal.” While I didn’t walk away from the Gemstone Energy Massage channeling my inner Superman; able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, I was definitely relaxed and feeling grounded. Sage Springs Spa: I’ll be back!
