CALGARY, ALBERTA: (January 5, 2011) Bellstar Hotels & Resorts is thrilled to announce the opening of One Wellness & Spa at Solara Resort & Spa. The new wellness facility elevates Bellstar’s flagship luxury Canmore property to the leading wellness destination resort in the Canadian Rockies.
Owned and operated by local resident and physiotherapist Hugh Simpson, One Wellness & Spa was founded after Simpson witnessed the destructive effects of extreme stress and pressure on the lives of two close friends. With a revolutionary concept striving to change the traditional ‘passive’ spa experience into an integrated exploration of personal wellness, dedicated to long-term transitions. Programs, packages and services are layered, focusing on the needs, preferences and objectives of the guest.
“We are excited to welcome One Wellness & Spa to the Bellstar family,” says Ralf Strub, President & Chief Operating Officer of Bellstar Hotels & Resorts. “Effectively enhancing the guest experience is the driving force behind our mandate at Bellstar, and our partnership with One Wellness at Solara Resort & Spa provides our guests with an incredibly unique wellness experience, unlike any other in Canada.”
The Pathways to Engagement process is One Wellness and Spa’s signature experience menu. Guests choose a Pathway that best represents a current need - Sleep, Release, Clearing, Transition or Joy - and then they are led through a process of needs assessment, massage, specialized aromatherapy, custom breath work and guided imagery that best reflects his or her chosen Pathway. The aim is to support and inspire guests to continue along their pathway to wellness and health beyond the treatment room. More traditional spa services are also offered by a team of talented technicians, using the best possible products and ingredients: a Skin Fitness facial or Moisture Drench facial will leave skin nourished, glowing and radiant, while a stimulating Lemongrass Mimosa body scrub will help restore skin’s health and elasticity. Other services offered by the spa include personal training, fitness, Pilates, life strategy coaching sessions, nutrition related services and physiotherapy.
