Find out about our Rates & Specials

We met such interesting people as we navigated hiking, dance, water classes, Pilates and yoga. At lease 4 or 5 choices for every hour–or you can just lie by a pool or in a hammock. The staff is excellent; the casitas are all different and lovely, the grounds are beautifully landscaped…We love it.

Wellness Journey Massage

A holistic experience to support your wellness journey, soothe the soul and allow the body to heal physically and emotionally. The power of each wellness focused aromatherapy blend is based on the therapeutic properties of essential oils. Our unique massage technique supports the immune system and promotes balance. Hot compresses applied along the spine help essential oils penetrate into the nervous system.

Energy Balance

Energy healing is a profound and fundamental part of holistic therapy. Your therapist balances chakras (centers of vital energy) and returns them to their natural state of vibration and frequency using color, light, sound, aroma, energy work, and sacred geometry.

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 well-being 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.

Your wellness expert will help you determine which treatment is right for you.

Sound Healing

Crystal bowls emit pure sound waves that resonate throughout the body’s tissues and organs.

Additional sound instruments may be used such as tibetan bowls, a sea drum, koshi bells, a gong, and other instruments at the instructor’s discretion.
