       At the Grail Springs Spa it's not just the creature conmforts that are catered for.  This is a resort where health, spirituality and a oneness with nature are premium.  When I asked Marentette if her guests are mostly those who have a spiritual leaning she smiled and said, "I would say that many are, but there are others who are simply searching for a reconnection with self, with mother nature, in order to find balance in their lives.  These guests often discover that it is the spiritual connection that has been missing.

       In an area known throughout North America for a plethora of mineral deposits and a rich accumulation of gemstones including quartz crystals, there are those who say that this environment has special healing properties.  To learn more about Bancroft's mineral riches, hike to the spa's own exposed crystal bed.

       In keeping with the spa's raison d'etre, treatments include Austrian Moor Mud treatments that detoxify and nourish the body.  An ancient Celtic Bath Ritual is available twice a month during the full moon phase and the new moon phase.  Himalayan and Tibetan treatments, a Hot Stone massage, Colon Hydrotherapy, Infrared Sessions and the spa's special aromatic oil treatment, a Brazilian Babassu Body Ritual, leaves participants feeling deliciously relaxed.  "Our most popular treament" Marentette explains, "is Raindrop Therapy.  It's a combination of nine aromatherapy essential oils, massage, heat and energy - it's very soothing and deeply healing."
