First Look: Canyon Ranch Brings ‘World-Class Wellness’ to Fort Worth’s Cultural District

The newest Canyon Ranch destination spa is located at the Crescent Hotel complex in Fort Worth's Cultural District. Its high-tech features include a Vichy table, a Noraxon Treadmill and Motion Capture system, VALD ForceDecks, a K5 Portable Metabolic analyzer, and more.

The company was acquired by Fort Worth's Goff Capital in 2017, which moved its HQ to the Panther City—and plans further Texas expansion.

There are spas, and then there are spas. Canyon Ranch is among the latter. Since 1979, the company has been a pioneer and innovator in “destination wellness,” with over 1,500 services “drawing from ancient wisdom and modern technology” at its resort spas in Arizona, California, Massachusetts, and at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

Fort Worth-based Goff Capital acquired the company in 2017 and moved its headquarters to the Panther City—so it’s no surprise that a new Canyon Ranch Wellness Club has now opened in the new Crescent Hotel complex in Fort Worth’s Cultural District at 850 Van Cliburn Way and Camp Bowie Blvd.

The new “luxury destination” features a spa, salon, fitness, performance, and
expert services” from Canyon Ranch’s resorts.

The club is said to be introducing “many firsts” for Fort Worth, “including the area’s only Vichy table”—a spa amenity (above) that features a cushioned table beneath its own row of shower heads for a “multi-sensory” hydrotherapy experience.

There’s also an all-new CR Vitality experience with “the latest, cutting-edge tools and techniques for recovery, increased energy, and improved longevity,” Canyon Ranch says.

The club also offer a deep list of programming, dozens of services, “expert practitioners,” and innovative technology like the Noraxon Treadmill and Motion Capture system, VALD ForceDecks, K5 Portable Metabolic analyzer, HydraFacial treatments, and more.

Members begin their “Canyon Ranch journey” with a signature five-part holistic wellness assessment, the company said, “ensuring they’re on the right path achieving their personal health goals.”

The ‘original thought leader’ of the lifestyle wellness movement

Mark Rivers, CEO of Canyon Ranch, says his company “is the original thought-leader and market-maker in the lifestyle wellness movement.”

“We’re incredibly proud to deliver the best of our resort and spa experiences to Fort Worth,” Rivers added in a statement, “where people can practice wellness every day right in their own backyard.”

Canyon Ranch says it aims to “enable members to live longer and better” and does so “by helping members understand, address, and adopt wellness practices while offering a fun and lively community that motivates and inspires long-term commitment.”

John Goff, principal owner of Canyon Ranch, says the new club is achieving what it set out to do.

“Our local members, along with guests of our connected Crescent Fort Worth Hotel, will enjoy the gold standard in a healthier life and lifestyle,” Goff said in a statement.

First step in company’s Texas expansion

The new Fort Worth is just the start of a planned Texas expansion for Canyon Ranch. A new resort in the Hill Country of Austin is slated to open in 2025, and future locations are being considered in the Lone Star State and beyond, the company said.
