When the stars align in Hollywood later this week for the 84th Academy Awards, they will arrive on the red carpet pampered, well manicured and coiffed for the occasion. Similarly, celebrities and headline entertainers who appear at Turning Stone Resort • Casino favor personal pampering at the resort's award-winning Skaná Spa. Named “Casino of the Year” by the Academy of Country Music in 2009, Turning Stone hosts more than 750 performances on its multiple stages annually, including national headline acts.

According to spa director Loretta Taylor, the most popular services among the top entertainers who frequented Skaná Spa in 2011 were the Sage and White Pine Hot Towel Massage and the Oneida Harmony Facial.

Treatments at Skaná – which means “peace” in the Oneida language – combine ancient American Indian healing traditions promoting inner peace and harmony, melded with modern techniques to provide one of the world’s most luxuriously unique spa experiences.

Since entertainers often are on property for a compressed time period they opt to try the most authentic and relaxing treatments available.

Taylor says the Sage and White Pine Hot Towel Massage is the ultimate relaxing experience that rejuvenates tired bodies with deep vigorous massage and steaming hot towels infused with sage and a white pine oil blend.

“Sage has long been used for its ability to bring about clarity and deep relaxation. The White Pine is the Great Tree of Peace in the Oneida culture,” Taylor explained. “It was the most valued botanical for healing fatigue and mental exhaustion. Tension found within muscles is unraveled with this powerfully effective treatment.” It’s no wonder the entertainers return to Turning Stone year after year!

A second popular celebrity treatment, the Oneida Signature Harmony Facial, also draws from Oneida traditions combining the balancing dance of Oneida Herbal and Stone Therapy for a completely harmonizing experience that reinvigorates the entire body and makes skin glow with vitality.

The body's key touch points - back, scalp, face, hands and feet - are treated during this classic purifying facial. “Our guests tell us they feel so nurtured and leave feeling relaxed and refreshed,” Taylor said.
