Sleep. Nearly half of all American adults don’t get enough of this basic necessity according to The Better Sleep Council. Poor sleep causes lower productivity, slower cognitive responses, forgetfulness, depression, as well as a number of health problems. While there are certainly tips you can use to get the zzz’s you need there are also three fantastic new offerings developed at Well & Being at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess to promote adult napping and help guests get a better quality of rest.
“Quality sleep has never been more relevant to a healthy life,” said Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., Well & Being chief medical officer. “Sleep is a natural miracle drug, recharging our body, mind, and spirit. Through the new sleep programming at Well & Being, we hope to help guests integrate restful sleep into a healthier daily lifestyle.” In response to our nation’s poor sleep “epidemic” of sorts, Well & Being has created two new “sleep well” programs with business travelers in mind, the Healthy Executive Package and the Blissful Sleep Package. Both are inclusive of Sweet Dreams amenity kits, sleep-inducing treatments, and personal sleep-improvement consultations. Treatments through the new sleep well programs include acupuncture, acupressure, massage, personal training, and one-on-one consultations for stress reduction and nutrition. Guests staying overnight will also receive turn-down tips from Dr. Low Dog for when they are ready to call it a day. In additions, guests can enjoy the new So Sound Acoustic Resonance Room where specially-designed zero-gravity loungers create a cocoon of sound resonance for relaxation and meditation and encourage adult napping.
“Naps aren’t just meant for children,” Dr. Low Dog said. “On average, American adults do not receive the necessary hours of sleep each night, leaving them dragging during the day. A short nap of 20-30 minutes can immediately improve alertness, while reducing stress, anxiety and insomnia, improving physical, mental and emotional clarity, muscle relaxation and circulation.” These loungers help to reduce chronic stress, fatigue, and pain through a harmonic massage of healing tones, vibrations, and a calming scent of lavender essential oil. Meditative sleep is further encouraged by hot chamomile tea and Sprayology Sleep Ease and Melatonin sleep elixir. To continue their healthy sleep journey at home, Well & Being developed take-home information on the physiological effects associated with particular colors along with sleep tips developed by Dr. Low Dog and aromatherapy-infused sleep patches.
These new sleep well programs are just the latest addition to Well & Being’s menu of restorative treatments that promote rest and relaxation. Guests can also enjoy services such as Melodic Reflexology, Harmonic Reiki, and Harmonized Acupuncture. As well, personal Restorative Sound Healing and Breath and Harmony consultation services can be added to any treatment.
