The resort within a resort experience at The Lodge also includes Skʌ:nʌ́: a luxurious spa inspired by Oneida and American Indian culture and healing techniques. The Oneida word for peace, Skʌ:nʌ́ : has been named on multiple “Top Spa” lists, including Spas of America’s 2016 Top Spas in the World, where it took the third place slot. With an extensive menu of treatments ranging from restorative to invigorating, and world-class facilities that include steam rooms, mineral pools, saunas, and an intimate café, Skʌ:nʌ́ : is designed to bring lifestyle, nutrition and fitness into perfect harmony. As the cold and snow of winter begin to set in in many parts of the country, hot stone massages are increasingly popular at Skʌ:nʌ́ :. The award-wining spa has added powerful Himalayan pink salts to their hot stone massage treatment, providing both relaxation and detoxifying benefits. The use of pink Himalayan salt stones, as opposed to standard black basalts, has been shown to reduce inflammation, reduce muscle cramps by improving hydration, aid in balancing blood sugar and induce deep relaxation. With the 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements, mined from the Himalayan Mountains, Skʌ:nʌ́ :’s new Himalayan Salt Stone Massage soothes tired muscles and releases tension, reduces inflammation, balances the central nervous system, nourishes depleted cells in the body, stimulates circulation and improves the quality and length of sleep. The treatment itself begins in one of Skʌ:nʌ́ :’s tranquil treatment rooms, each designed with Oneida Indian culturally themed elements, including a unique dreamcatcher and native-inspired music. Warmed Himalayan salt stones are massaged over the body in a specific sequence to balance the body’s meridians, or energy channels. As the salt stones heat, negative ions are released into the air, which has been shown to reduce oxidative stress on the body. Drawing upon traditional Chinese medicine therapy, the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage grounds and balances the body’s electromagnetic field, and the pressure, motion, and thermal effects used during the treatment work to replenish nutrients in the connective tissue, reducing muscle tension, while creating deep relaxation. Always an industry leader, Skʌ:nʌ́ : has also focused on treatments designed with men’s specific needs in mind. The Skʌ:nʌ́ : for Gentlemen menu, introduced last year, provides several customizable treatments specifically targeted at the ailments that men are often faced with, including tight, sore muscles, dry skin and achieving a smooth, clean shave. The menu features muscle-repairing massages, skin-brightening facials, custom-tailored pedicures and a gentlemen’s haircut. 1612CA38
