About Canyon Ranch in Tucson
In 1978, Mel Zuckerman had an A-ha experience that changed his life and sparked the creation of now-acclaimed Canyon Ranch. Overweight and dealing with various health problems, Mel had gone to a California spa for help. His A-ha moment came when he realized how great he could feel by staying active, eating right, and living healthfully. His wife, Enid, was already a health enthusiast, and the couple soon made a commitment to build Canyon Ranch--a haven for wellness and "living younger longer."
The first Canyon Ranch opened in 1979, in the dazzling Sonoran Desert. It has since become an award-winning oasis of health, joy, and vitality. Indeed, Canyon Ranch has defined all that a destination spa can be. Today the sprawling campus with its low-lying adobe buildings can accommodate about 250 guests, both former and new.
The Zuckermans' goal is to inspire each guest to make a long-term commitment to healthy living and to provide the practical tools to do so. Guests flock to Canyon Ranch to take control of their health or rejuvenate. Canyon Ranch is distinguished by its unsurpassed team of wellness professionals including physicians, nurses, complementary health practitioners, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and more.
