You don't need therapy or to spend big bucks on a spa for all the healing vibes. Bell Rock in Sedona is a natural healing vortex, perfect for refreshing and rejuvenating your mind and soul. You can enjoy this gorgeous hike around the trail, absorbing all of nature's powerful cures.

Healing vortexes are mystical occurrences in nature where you can attune your senses with the Earth's properties. Spiritual leaders say you can visit one of these sites to heal yourself and balance energy flow.

Bell Rock is one of these vortexes, and you can feel the incredible vibes when you hike this path. You can stop along the way and meditate, or simply wander the loop and enjoy nature's majesty around you.

You can see where the natural energy, which creates the "vortexes," has curved and spiraled some of the trees around the areas.

You might feel a tingling sensation on your skin when you pass through the vortex, and Bell Rock is considered one of the biggest in Sedona.

To access the trail, you can park in the North Bell Rock lot, which will lead you straight to the path. Parking costs $5 for the day.

The best part about the hike is that you'll also get amazing red rock views no matter where you explore. You can choose to stay on Bell Rock Trail or wander Courthouse Butte Loop.

Both are moderately paced and give you a chance to scope different views of the gorgeous red rocks and bell-shaped vortex.

Snap some epic photos, then stop to meditate, and let your energy sync with the Earth's natural healing powers. You will finish the hike feeling just as refreshed as if you took a spa day, minus the cash splash.

There is nothing like re-attuning yourself to nature to feel truly refreshed. 

Head to Bell Rock with an open mind and spirit so that you can enjoy all the perks of this incredible vortex!

We love nature, and we also enjoy anything that lets us reset, so this gorgeous hike is right up our alley.
