January at The Ranch: Rediscovery

Rancho La Puerta

In the last post we shared 7 tips for a New Year, New You. January presents the opportunity to self-reflect and eliminate habits that do not work and transform them into one’s that do. It is the rediscovery of who we are on an annual basis.  Here at Rancho La Puerta we have an active schedule of fitness, wellness and mind/spirit classes to kick-start your month of rediscovery.

New! Xocolatl Skin Replenishment In ancient Mexico, chocolate (xocolatl) was considered to be food for the Gods. This native-inspired ritual feeds the skin with antioxidants from cacao. Nourishing cacao butter and sugar make a delicious body butter scrub that conditions and softens the skin. Exfoliation is followed by a yogurt and honey mask that renews skin texture. A cacao infused massage is the ultimate body nourishment!

New! Detox Massage  Invigorating Detox massage using special beauty massage cups in combination with 100% natural active ingredients from Mother of Pearl extracts bring out the individual’s beauty to its best. Gentle breathing and profound detoxifying massage techniques revitalize the body and prepare it for the subsequent intense circulation-stimulating massage with the silicone cups. This balanced treatment of a slimming massage and the skin-protecting active ingredients promotes the revitalization and elasticity of the skin.
