Whether you’re a stiletto wearer or a sneakers sporter, a person takes an average of 3,000 to 4,000 steps every day. Overused and underappreciated, our tired tootsies can take a serious beating – which can ultimately lead to ailments like back, hip and knee pain.
The Canyon Ranch Healthy Feet™ initiative ensures that you take the right steps to secure healthy (and happy!) feet. The spa center, located adjacent to the Canyon Ranch SpaClub lobby at The Venetian and developed in partnership with Dr. Glenn Copeland, author of The Foot Book and The Foot Doctor, has put its own best foot forward by providing such therapies as gait analysis, orthotics and pampering treatments that are dedicated to advanced foot health and comfort.
Here are just a few of the services offered that we find perfect for soothing the soul, er, sole.
This service includes video analysis of your gait using a specially equipped treadmill, and a precise, computerized assessment of the biomechanics of your feet as you walk across an orthotics mat. It may also include a review and recommendations for orthotics, if indicated. (Off-the-shelf, custom orthotics are available and will fit most types of shoes.) (Note: This service is not appropriate for evaluating prescription orthotics you are already using.)
Fees vary, 25 minutes
