Robin Leigh, The Spa of Sedona Owner

Robin Leigh

As a Spa owner and a Certified Colon Hydrotherapist with over 15 years of experience, I am passionate about helping my clients achieve optimal health and wellness. My journey to better health began in 2005 when I was a client trying to heal from health issues, which led me to adopt a holistic approach to wellness. I emphasize the importance of reducing toxic load on the body by eating whole organic foods, reducing exposure to environmental toxins, reducing overall stress and cleansing the body on a regular basis. My commitment to personalized treatments and education on healthy lifestyle choices ensures that my clients receive the utmost care and attention. I take pride in providing a safe and comfortable environment for my clients to relax and rejuvenate.

Ishti

Tarot and Oracle Readings • Being conscious of creating our lives is a co-creative process, when we tap into our Divine energies. We all want to see our lives in Love and Harmony. Bringing loving kindness and compassion to our environment and all who share that bubble. It can be so very important to remember who we are and what we are doing here. Sometimes a way into this powerful growing can come from understanding ourselves through a reading. My readings are an expression of you. No matter what you might think you need to know, your Guides, Teachers, and Soul have a direct message to tell you. My orientation is just that. Let’s discover together. I have been reading Tarot Cards for most of my life. There was a time when I owned a New Age store and yoga studio. My background has deep roots in Buddhism, Hinduism and just plain waking up to the Christ Consciousness we are all a part of.
