Skin care therapists at Spa La Quinta devote special time to rejuvenating the whole body with unique Body Treatments, including scrubs using indigenous products from the area. For the Mountain Dunes Clay Wrap, orange clay is dry brushed to the skin, providing extensive detoxification of the skin, while trapping moisture. Another popular Native American treatment is the Cahuilla Sage Wrap that detoxifies the body through enhanced perspiration.
