L’Auberge De Sedona’s L’Apothecary Spa offers a wide range of treatments for relaxing the body and mind.  Lay back and enjoy a Quiet Mind massage, where you’ll be guided in techniques designed to help you tune out distractions and relish the experience free from the stress of everyday life.  Another signature treatment, Sedona Dreams, focuses on rejuvenating the entire body.  After an all-natural exfoliating scrub, you’ll enjoy a neck and scalp massage while your body is being moisturized by a coconut-oil wrap.  At L’Apothecary, most treatments are optionally available outside near the running water and forest scenery.  If the season is right, there’s even the Feet in the Creek treatment,  which starts you out by taking a quiet walk through the ankle-deep Oak Creek with no distractions except fresh air and running water.
