Sensory Healing

Temporarily Paused

Be immersed in a pristine forest environment. Connect with nature under a quiet starlit sky. Balance your chakras through the sounds of native flutes. These are just a few of the sensory healing experiences waiting for you at L’Apothecary Spa in tranquil, magical Sedona.

Forest Bathing

L’Apothecary Spa, set amidst towering woods and flowing creek, affords sensory healing experiences such as bathing in nature. Referred to as “Shinrin-Yoku” in Japan, Forest Bathing is the practice of channeling nature’s essence for the wellness it provides. It focuses on soaking in the essence of the forest (rather than the literal sense of taking a bath in the middle of the forest). A certified Shinrin-Yoku facilitator guides you, immersing you in the natural forest environment to elicit scientifically proven benefits like reduced blood pressure and stress, boosted immune system function, and improved sleep. The experience disconnects you from the world, allowing connections with nature and providing healing practices you can utilize in everyday life. Your session includes an eco-journal to record your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. Dress appropriately for the weather with comfortable clothing and shoes. Novice to Advanced

Star Bathing

In celebration of the dark skies of Sedona and the fresh air of our high desert oasis, Star Bathing is our adaptation of Shinrin-Yoku Forest Bathing sensory healing. Connect with nature while finding peace under the quiet starlit sky. Our certified Forest Bathing facilitators will guide you toward heightening your other senses when vision is reduced by the darkness of night. Your facilitator will invite you to awaken and attune your senses to the smell of the fresh water flowing through the creek, the rustle of the leaves, the taste in the wind—all while slowing down to meet the calm natural wonders of the night.

Vortex Treehouse Meditations

Most of Sedona is considered to be a vortex, but there are specific sites where the energy is believed to be most intense: Airport Mesa (cleansing, letting go), Cathedral Rock (allowing, receiving), Bell Rock (loving acceptance), and Boynton Canyon (centering, grounding). We have created four rituals themed after these vortices to help you create a special Sedona experience. Each session includes direction on becoming present, a guided meditation specific to your purpose, a sound bath to enhance your intention, and a closing. These signature sensory healing sessions are offered in our hillside Vortex Treehouse, which offers stunning views of our magical Sedona red rocks. Novice to Advanced

Sound Healing

Sound Healing uses the energy of sound to promote wellness in the human system through various techniques. This signature sensory healing experience begins with a brief discussion of primordial sound healing and moves into a few simple interactive practices of toning and mantra, allowing new discoveries of yourself to surface. Next, a deep relaxation and chakra balancing are achieved through the sounds of seven native flutes that are tuned to the seven main energy centers of the body. Novice to Advanced
