Since 1778, guests of The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV, have availed of the resort's 40,000 square-foot spa, renowned for the healthful benefits of its sulphur waters. In 1948, The Greenbrier Clinic opened, providing state-of-the-art preventive care to resort guests and to visitors. Now, these two prominent entities have joined forces to create The Greenbrier Center for Healthy Living. This collaboration blends the comprehensive medical expertise of The Greenbrier Clinic with the luxurious setting and amenities of the resort, in targeted packages designed to address specific issues such as stress management, smoking cessation, weight reduction or simply overall healthier living. Packages pricing for the Center for Healthy Living starts at $5455* for a minimum of four nights and varies depending on length of stay, season and choice of treatments. Packages can be booked by calling The Greenbrier Spa at 304-536-7745 or by visiting http://www.greenbrier.com.
The Greenbrier Center for Healthy Living experience is fully customized to meet each guest's specific requirements, and to ensure that a plan to achieve the guest's personal goals is well established by the end of the stay. The experience begins with the first call when an assessment of the guest's lifestyle goals is conducted along with a review of the different options available. Each treatment, consultation and evaluation at the Center for Healthy Living can be partnered with any other option such as indulgent spa services, unlimited fitness classes, and even culinary demonstrations, in order to create the ideal package. The Greenbrier Clinic offers aesthetic procedures, including Botox Cosmetic, Restylane, Perlane, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser photorejuvenation, all performed in the luxurious setting of The Greenbrier Spa.
Upon arrival at the resort, guests receive a welcome gift that includes a personal spa journal, a special turn-down amenity such as a lavender sachet or aromatherapy oils and a relaxation CD. They then visit their personal wellness specialist at The Greenbrier Spa at an appointed time, to review the itinerary prepared for their stay and receive a detailed explanation of their about the program. A tour of the spa, fitness area, pool and the Clinic, is also conducted. At The Greenbrier Clinic, a physician will conduct a thorough medical evaluation, including a review of the guest's medical history, personal risk factors and a complete physical examination. Screening studies such as coronary calcium scanning, body composition by DEXA and lung cancer screening are included in some packages.
A typical day at the Center for Healthy Living will begin with a morning hike through the resort's expansive, 6,500-acre property, set in the Allegheny Mountains, followed by a nutritious breakfast. Others can opt to spend the morning in exercise classes such as aerobics and spinning, yoga and Pilates, or water aerobics and lap swimming. Taking advantage of the vast outdoors around them, they can also choose to participate in recreational and fitness options including hiking, tennis, golf, horseback riding, river rafting and swimming among others. Following a light lunch, participants will meet with a clinical psychologist to consult on stress management, mindful eating, or smoking cessation, based on their preferences. Other activities may include wellness lectures, focusing on topics such as nutrition, fitness and lifestyle, or culinary demonstrations focusing on healthy cooking techniques and menu items. After a relaxing evening spent indulging in a sulphur soak or receiving a massage, guests will have an early dinner before retiring for the evening.
