Getting an IV stuck in your arm may not sound like your idea of a relaxing spa day, but hear us out. You may or may not have heard of IV Therapy but either way, the wellness hype is real. While you can find similar treatments at various locales around the Valley, often in more clinical (ahem…boring) settings, there’s only one local resort spa to feature the unique treatment: Joya Spa at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia.
Led by Joya’s very own board-certified naturopathic physician Dr. Lauren Beardsley, the body-quenching treatment is a dose of essential vitamins and nutrients delivered straight into your bloodstream for instant benefits. Depending on the chosen formula, IV Therapy can help improve sleep, balance mood, increase energy, reduce aches and pains, enhance performance, speed recovery, prevent illness and more. During our recent to give the treatment a try, we experienced the recovery formula. Packed with electrolytes and B vitamins, the recovery formula helps to hydrate and rejuvenate. If you’re thinking this sounds like a great idea after a long night in Old Town, you are absolutely right. While it takes about 45 minutes to administer, the effects are felt almost immediately. Upon leaving the spa, I was overcome with energy and an overall feel-good vibe (the raspberry tea and eucalyptus-infused ice towels didn’t hurt either).
In addition to the energy formula, Joya Spa also offers immune, recovery, athlete and detox blends. Can’t decide? Guests can work with Dr. Beardsley to create their own custom concoction, based on personal needs and desires. We may have even heard she has a secret mix that aids in glowing skin and is the perfect accompaniment to a facial. Calling all brides!
Guests can even book IV parties. Perfect for wedding-day fun and bachelorette parties, gather up your tribe of best friends and make a day out of it. And if you’re short on time, Dr. Beardsley is able to administer an IV while you enjoy another treatment. Because we love being efficient, even when it comes to self care.
Oh and did we mention, you’ll still receive full access to all spa and fitness amenities when booking an IV treatment? Kick back in Moroccan style amid jewel hues and mystical amenities pre- and post-IV. Inspired by the Far East, the cozy yet palatial Joya Spa brings to mind royal palaces and the ultimate in relaxation. Take advantage of the sauna, steam room, whirlpool, lounges and rooftop pool. And seriously…don’t miss those eucalyptus-infused towels when exiting the steam room. Your body will thank you.
The 60-minute IV treatment is $195 with custom options available for an additional $45.
