REIKI

Dissolve the body’s aches, strains and emotional imbalances with an empowering Reiki session. Soften into tranquility as the chakras are balanced, either with gentle touches or with hands slightly off the body. Reiki uses Qi (pronounced ‘chi’), its life force energy to remove energy blocks so healing energy can freely flow and harmonize the mind, body, and spirit. 

RECONNECTIVE HEALING®

Experience an optimal state of balance and wellbeing with a Reconnective Healing®. Rest deeply as the practitioner guides energy, light and information (vibrational frequencies) around the body using a hands-off approach. Feel relief as imbalances leave the body, and a sense of harmony replenishes the spirit.

SOMATIC EXPERIENCING®

Feel alive, relaxed and whole again as tension, pain, and stress diminish. Somatic Experiencing resets the Central Nervous System through sensory methods that help to resolve the effects of past traumas. Learn to regulate stress through a guided exploration of the interplay between emotions and the body.

LIFELINE TECHNIQUE™

Regain a sense of peace and empowerment as you awaken to the root causes of stressful experiences that manifest as symptoms. The practitioner will help connect the conscious and subconscious mind with practices such as Chinese Five Element theory, sound, crystal and color therapy, chakra balancing, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), and Applied Kinesiology.

Improve and maintain your health through the deeply therapeutic practice of acupuncture. Hair-thin needles are painlessly inserted into a network of energetic pathways called meridians or channels. Energy runs throughout the meridians, allowing for the body’s Qi (pronounced ‘chi’) or energetic life force, to flow without obstruction. Whether you seek treatment for an acute or chronic condition, or seek simply to achieve overall wellness, acupuncture treats the root cause of imbalances. This ancient Chinese healing practice creates a relaxed and harmonious state of equilibrium within.

WATSU® (also referred to as Water Shiatsu) principles are rooted in Eastern Philosophy that focus on whole body health, balance, and holistic healing practices. The practice was developed by Harold Dull in 1980 at the Northern California School of Shiatsu and Massage.  Inspired by his Zen Shiatsu studies in Japan while floating students in warm water, Dull incorporated the Shiatsu stretches and methodologies into his water practice. With his deep understanding of our body’s ability to store trauma, to release it and renew, he knows freedom rests in unlocking those blocks to bring about a healthy state. Like Shiatsu, WATSU focuses on releasing impediments along our meridians – the channels through which our “Chi” or life-force flow.

WATSU® sessions are held in 96-degree warm water – the same temperature as our skin – and incorporate a series of stretches that lengthens muscles while increasing flexibility and range of motion. The recipient is cradled in a floating position as their head rests just above the water and their ears are just below it. Noise is quieted, and with eyes closed, the buoyancy of the warm water relieves the weight on the body, which frees the spine, takes pressure off the vertebrae and relaxes the muscles. The support of the water allows the spine to be moved in ways impossible on land as gentle, gradual twists and pulls relieve the pressure that a rigid spine places on nerves.

WaterDance™ was originally developed in Switzerland in 1987 independently of WATSU®. The founders, Arjana Brunschwiler and Aman Schroter referred to the modality as “an underwater three-dimensional journey where time and space lose their meaning”. WaterDance™ emphasizes gentle and dynamic, flowing movement above and below water. After being stretched, massaged and relaxed at the surface, the receiver is given a nose clip to prevent water from entering the nasal passages and then gradually guided entirely underwater. Touch or movement signals are used to communicate when the receiver is to be submerged and the therapist carefully times submersion in coordination with the receiver’s breath. The receiver is gently guided into a weightless, three-dimensional, underwater world where they are skillfully maneuvered, swayed, and “flown” while being regularly brought to the surface for breath.  Graceful, dolphin-like movements combined with stretching and massage magically release tension, stress and pain. The rhythmic movement and deep silence elicit an effortless state of meditation, resulting in profound peace, inner awareness, joy and trust. Experience a WaterDance and emerge not just relaxed, but reborn! Read more about Dave Towe, Watsu® and Water Dance™

Body

Body treatments, now popular at spas worldwide, have been a fixture at Rancho La Puerta since 1940. Ranch co-founder Professor Edmond Szekely sought a balm for the aches and other muscle discomforts that afflicted some guests who were unaccustomed to dawn-to-dusk exercise. He adapted and modified the 19th-century naturopathic techniques of Father Sebastian Kniepp (1821-1897). Today our treatments are as effective and soothing as ever, promoting circulation and relaxing tense and sore muscles.

Inspired by ancient Mexican ceremonies and Ranch traditions, this treatment cultivates a deep connection to yourself and nature. Your journey begins with an outdoor stroll to a private spa tent nestled under majestic oaks in the healing shadow of Mt. Kuchumaa. In our garden arena we will welcome you with a ritual sage smudge and ceremonial conch blessing. You will then retreat to your sanctuary where you will receive bodywork based on your solar plexus pulse, a detoxifying clay abdominal mask, and a healing abdominal massage. Gentle stretches with a rebozo (scarf) will be incorporated to help release the body and bring harmony to your mind, body, and spirit.
