Short Cuts: More than mud wraps and massage
Spa Spreads Native Wisdom


At the newly opened 250-room Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, in Greensboro, Ga., groups are introduced to the traditional ways of the area’s Creek tribe of Native Americans by John Winterhawk, spiritual leader of the Eufala Star Clan. Winterhawk (above) leads sessions on storytelling, music and spiritual remedies, and he also gives talks on tribal history and language. Time-honored Creek remedies are incorporated into spa treatments, such as the Oconee mud wrap, a blend of wild yam, elderberry, juniper and sage mixed with indigenous clay. (706) 467-0600
