It's the newest trend among Scottsdale spas -
pureed perishables used to attract upscale
clientele. And local spagoers are eating it up,
spending up to $240 for a single treatment.
"Right now, I am just seeing everything that
you can possibly eat in a spa treatment," said
Lisa Kasanicky, chief executive of Arizona Spa
Girls, a local spa directory Web Site.

Spa owners say newly discovered healing
benefits in foods like caviar, coffee and
chocolate are helping spagoers stay young
and beautiful. But others say it's mostly hype.

For instance, the antioxidants in fruits like pomegranates and cranberries are supposed to reduce
wrinkles and improve skin. They are both common ingredients in facials and body scrubs.
"Probably the hottest food right now is pomegranate. Pomegranate is the new green tea for spa
treatments because of all the antioxidants," Kasanicky said. "But honestly, it's probably better if
you just ate it."

Regardless, the unusual is becoming so usual at the spas that Scottsdale's Convention and
Visitor's Bureau took notice and compiled a list of some of the more exotic resort spa treatments.
The list included everything from a coffee-grounds body wrap to a massage using warm golf

"Spa is becoming more and more of an everyday thing in people’s health and wellness routine,"
said Laura McMurchie, vice president of communications for the Scottsdale Convention and
Visitors Bureau.

"People are looking for more exotic and different types of treatments," she said.
