Health & Wellness programs

Purifying Journey

The Programs run from Monday through Sunday, every week of the year. The minimum stay for any of our programs is one week. 

If it's true that you are what you eat, we are all in dire danger of becoming something compact, microwaveable, doused in chemicals and encased in cellophane. Somehow our eating habits have declined, leading to a loss of energy and feelings of fatigue. What to do?

purifying

The answer is a "detox cleanse". You will love the energy the eating program will give you, and you will also lose several pounds.

Our body, mostly our liver, works overtime to rid itself of unnecessary substances we put through it daily, including pesticides and growth hormones in our food, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and hard-to-digest substances like dairy products. Eating only organic produce and limiting the amount of chemicals we put into the body allows the liver and body to "cleanse" themselves of the impurities we ingest. By cooking all our meals from the freshest, most nutritious ingredients, we revive our bodies and also help eliminate the cravings for things we all know are bad, like overly refined white flour and white sugar.

This program incorporates a light diet with vegetable juices, which effectively rests the digestion, alkalizes the system and allows the kidneys and liver to begin to remove toxins.

The lifestyle therapies include acupuncture, fitness and movement therapy sessions as well as yoga. Also, you will learn the ancient Tibetan rites of rejuvenation for strength and balance.

They will also share with you our natural lifestyle kitchen with food preparation sessions.

Anti- Stress Escape

The Programs run from monday through sunday, every week of the year. The minimum stay for any of our programs is one week.

antistress

Stress is described as the "fight" or "flight" response: the body prepares for running or fighting, and the muscles, heart, lungs and brain gear up for action. Breathing is quicker, heartbeat gets faster, and blood pressure goes up. Stress is a normal part of everyday life. It may be caused by work, relationships, surroundings (such as noise, bad housing, traffic) or other factors. Some stress can be good for us, if we have the capacity to deal with it effectively. Stress can help us to grow. A little stress can give you energy and keep your mind alert. It keeps you “alive“.

Notwithstanding too much stress for too long is highly destructive and can lead to mental and physical exhaustion and illness. Many studies have shown that stress depresses our immune systems and shortens our life span. Stress clearly ages people before their time. Symptoms of stress may include aching and tense muscles, lack of concentration, insomnia, tiredness, diarrhea, constipation, colitis, ulcers, asthma, migraines, skin problems, frequent colds, anxiety, fear, depression, anger, changes in libido, impatience. Smoking, and drinking more, and never finishing anything are all signs of too much stress having gone on too long.

Thus stress disturbs the natural equilibrium. Our program of natural treatments, supported by physical activity, meditation and a correct way of eating, aims at a total recovery of the psycho-physical equilibrium.

Certain adaptogenic herbs are extremely valuable for reducing mental and emotional stress. The list of such herbs includes Morinda Citrifolia (Noni) Cat’s Claw, Lapacho (Pau d’Arco) and Ginseng.

Manual Technique

Asclepios Massage

Experience our Signature Massage to bring you back to a renewed and lighter state. Asclepios massage regulates the flow of vital energy throughout your entire body and stimulates the body’s natural regenerating process. This massage contains different passive movements that help to relax the muscles and uses the most exquisite details that make Asclepios massage a unique and different experience. This massage includes moderate pressure techniques.  

Swedish Massage

A tension releasing massage consisting of long strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles. Swedish massage is recommended for those persons that like soft to moderate pressure. An overall relaxation is the main objective in this massage, not only at body level but also at a mental level.  

Lymphatic Massage

Because lymph fluid moves slowly without aid of its own pump, inactivity can seriously restrict its flow. Muscular contraction through exercise and deep breathing is the primary means by which our lymph circulates, but lymphatic massage and drainage provide another helpful option. As lymphatic system circulates fats, proteins and immune cells and removes bacteria, viruses and cholesterol as well, a regular lymph massage (particularly around the abdomen, axillary nodes, and breast) can be great preventive health maintenance.  

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a technique that concentrates in the deep layers of muscle tissue. It is focalized in releasing chronic muscle tension of the body through soft movements and deep pressure in contracture areas, following and crossing muscle fibers, tendons and fascia. This massage helps to release toxins that are accumulated in muscles and promotes an adequate blood circulation and oxygenation. This massage is recommended to those persons that like strong pressure, it is special for sportsmen and persons who present considerable contractures.  

Healing Stone Massage

The Chinese dynasty “Shang”, Romans and Native American used to utilize different types of stones at different temperatures with therapeutic purposes. Healing stone massage uses hot basaltic lava stones; these stones contain a high level of iron. This allows the stone to keep the heat for more time. The heat and magnetic power of the stone combined with the massage, fights the pain, relax the body and expand the blood vessels and lymphatic system. It also revitalizes and oxygenates the skin. Some stones are located in different parts of the body (chakras) and others are moved by the therapist doing a massage. The use of the stones adds a thermal and pressure effect.  

Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage

A complete massage focused in back, neck and shoulders, zones where stress is more evident. Pressure is moderate, with passive movements of different joints. The vascular dilatation, muscular and nerve balance achieved in this area is transmitted to the rest of the body and transforms tension and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and back into a pleasant lightweight sensation.  

Thai Massage

Ancient bodywork practices from Thailand are enhanced with massage and yoga-like stretches to increase muscle relaxation and flexibility, all of which is performed without oils or undressing.  

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a Japanese “finger pressure massage” that is based on the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy, or qi through the body.

 

Spa & Hydrotherapy Treatments

hammam

Natural Facial

Complete treatment that includes cleansing, exfoliation, extractions and a light massage of the face, shoulders and chest area. We apply a special hydrating facial mask, which is complemented with a steam application and high frequency. Your face not only will look healthy, it also will be radiant.  

Body Scrub

When the top layer of dead skin cells is sloughed off by a dry brush, scrub, salt, clay, sugar or seed rub, the underlying layer reveals a fresher, more radiant complexion. We give two kinds of exfoliations during the treatments: a manual exfoliation with the product of your choice and the other is done with a body brush and cleansing gel. All of our recipes are made with 100% natural ingredients.   

Body Wrap

Choose one of our wrap recipes: moisturizing (chocolate) or clay. Let the product penetrate your pores by the heat application producing an evident change in your skin. This treatment begins with a body exfoliation, which optimizes the effect of the wrap and ends with a light facial and a moisturizing massage.  

Scottish Shower

A high pressure-hose provide a warm/cold and concentrated hydrotherapy massage while one remains standing. Improves circulation fortifying the vascular system and is a source of revitalization.  

Watsu

Aquatic bodywork involving stretching and Shiatsu (pressure-point techniques) while floating in warm water. The water temperature of 97º F is ideal for experiencing a sensation of deep relaxation. Gentle stretching increases flexibility and strengthens muscles.  

Vichy Shower

As part of a process involving wraps and scrubs, a Vichy shower uses multiple elevated showerheads spraying massaging jets of water. It improves relaxation of muscles and nerves.  

Floatation Therapy

Floating is another form of hydrotherapy and is the only one in Costa Rica, it takes place in an enclosed pool, without light, in body temperature water made buoyant by the addition of sea and Epsom salts. This therapy intimately connects your body and mind and induces an extremely deep state of mental and physical relaxation, helping to eliminate stress and tension.  

Hammam

This is the classic steam bath in a real Arabic Hammam. This treatment cleans the respiratory ways and is used to heal the classic affections of the respiratory system; releases the epidermis from impurities and dead cells and also improves blood and lymphatic circulation. This treatment is recommended to be used before a body exfoliation and/or body wrap treatments ending with a massage.  

Sauna

Dry heat room where temperature is maintained at 80º F degrees. The dry bath improves arterial pressure, reduces rheumatism and joint pains as well as muscular contractions; it also helps the basal metabolism and eliminates toxins; it is very relaxing. 

 

Ancient Therapeutic Treatments 

Naturopathy

The Naturopath will have many different treatments to offer but all are based on the concept that the body will heal itself if given the right stimulus. It is a holistic system of healing that includes water, air, sunshine, herbs, vitamins, massage, and counseling, as well as diet and nutrition. Patients are treated as a whole person rather than just by their symptoms.  

Digipuncture

It includes treatment through the acupuncture points, acupressure, feldenkrais postural integration, or positional release techniques. Also recomendations of therapeutic exercises are given as appropriate to aid clients in their self-sufficient progress.  

Reiki

Reiki is a system of Enlightenment and a Hands on Healing Art developed in the early 1900's by Mikao Usui in Japan. It is an art that is passed from Master to student. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words - Rei and Ki, meaning Universal Life Force Energy. The term "Reiki" is used to describe both the energy and the Usui system of using it. This therapy is excellent for those who have trouble honoring their own needs.  

Podoreflexology

In Occident, podoreflexology is based on Dr. William Fitzgerald’s teachings in Zone Therapy (1917) and the notion that each body part is represented on the feet and that pressing on specific areas on the feet can have therapeutic effects in other parts of the body. This art gives invaluable information on the health and function of many organs and body systems. At the same time it heavenly for tired feet.  

Floral Remedies

Developed in Britain by a doctor named Edward Bach, Back Flower Remedies are said to work on an "energetic level", healing different states of mind through the essence of flowers. Initially, Bach produced 38 different essences that work on specific emotional conditions such as depression, anxiety, guilt and envy. Now you can also discover the Costa Rican healing essences. Our consultation guides you through issues that are most important at this time, and include remedies made individually to help you overcome these issues.  

Coaching

Nutrition Coaching

Good nutrition or poor nutrition has a great impact in our health. Many of us are overfed yet malnourished. For others diet is actively feeding a disease process. By unraveling the myths surrounding food and gaining simple practical and individualized advice on eating, you can take control and make your dietary patterns work for you instead of against you.  

Life Enhancement Coaching

Qualified counselors give you the time and space to explore your inner world. Whether you need to reflect on certain issues, life direction, relationships or desires, or need assistance to help find out which of these is making you less happy. This session can be invaluable.  

Movement Techniques

Stretching

With the passing of the years, people lose the flexibility and elasticity of the tissues, but the constant stretching assures an adequate flexibility, which is a way of prevention against fractures and injuries in general. This class is dedicated to the practice and learning of different stretches and it is realized in a safe and effective way. The learned stretches can be used previously to a physical activity or just practice them as a single exercise.  

Yoga

Yoga is much more than postural alignment (asanas) and breathing. Yoga is an ancient indian spiritual practice that helps the individual unify his body, mind, and spirit.  

Tibetan Rites

Bodhi Tibetan Yoga uses a balanced holistic combination of stretching, intense aerobic breathing techniques, and ancient secret energy techniques. The 5 Tibetan postures represent a great way to keep your body in shape when you have limited time for a physical workout or limited space for a complete yoga routine. We use the 5 Tibetans as a warm up for our morning yoga or body workout.  

Personal Training

Sessions with our personal trainer, who designs a specific plan of physical condition according to the characteristics, capacity and proper needs of each person. The trainer also reviews and takes note of the sufferings and injuries from each person with the purpose to surely create an exercise plan that is not only effective but also safe for its health.  

Pilates

Pilates is like a cross between yoga, stretching and calisthenics. It enhances body alignment and balance, strengthens the abs, back and stabilizer muscles and stretches, strengthens and relaxes your body. With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns, Pilates has proven itself invaluable also as an important adjunct to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.
