Aji spa is not only a beautiful and relaxing environment; it’s also world-renowned as the only authentic Native American spa menu in existence. Thoachta is described as “a healing journey of body, mind and spirit” through a combination of massage, polarity, and ancient Pima doctrines. It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

Nestled at the base of the red rocks in Sedona, guests will feel stress and tension melt away before they even enter the spa doors. Visitors travel from all over the world to experience the unique Native American inspired treatments and services, including the Hoozhooji. This rejuvenating treatment combines detoxifying, mineral-rich clay, energy work, and massage therapy to reduce stress and reawaken positive energies.  There is nothing quite like this treatment anywhere in the world. 
  • Joya Signature Massage—Located at the AAA Four Diamond Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia, this massage is for those seeking deep-tissue relief. This signature treatment is Moroccan inspired and includes a blend of essential oils, flower and gem essences, and infused energy from the rare night blooming cactus flower “Queen of the Night”.
