 Understanding the Maya Art of Holistic Personal Wellness

We have the pleasure to introduce Yaxkin Spa's new generation of wellness personal care visionaries, its Spa Consultant, Holistic Wellness Coach, and Maya Healers. This unique intergenerational Spa team is composed of proactive professional females filled with enchantment, wisdom, and respect for Mother Nature.  They are focus on bringing all Maya Spa guests the best holistic wellness care imagined..   

To help you understand Maya medicinal care and holistic healing, the youngest member, Isabel Gutierrez, a Marine Biologist and Anthropologist dedicated to the Maya explains below the basics of ancient Maya holistic traditions and mindful living. Her youthful glow comes from her years of careful health, wellness personal care and her dedication to understand her body, mind, and spiritual needs at a deep level. "To be healthy is a goal we all should aim to," she explains with a healthy gentle smile that tells a lot about her approach to live, no wonder she is the new holistic wellness coach at Yaxkin Spa.  

"‘Spiritus’ in Latin means ‘breath of life’. Thus, the Healer channels pure spiritual energy to balance and boost your immune system, relax your body, mind, and emotions at a deep level. Maya healing traditions are rooted in such understanding, they work on a person’s “Chu’el” the energy of life itself, using prayer, matter's elements, massages, ancient Maya herbs, gems, and blessed water.  I invite you to experience this truly soulful way of wellness."

Traditional Maya Healing Arts
 Based on the Following Sacred Understanding:

Prayer and Meditation

The most powerful energy and source for holistic healing and wellness ceremonies is praying with a deep meditative chanting to bring inner balance and harmony. Mayan healers and shamans offer to Junab K’uj (God’s Spirit) and to the Yuumtsiloób (Mayan gods) a  path to open a healing channel to restore the healthy energy to a person’s ch’ulel. Prayers are always repeated in numerical sequences and are accompany normally with aromatherapy or incense burning of copal and other sacred resins.

 At Yaxkin Spa, each holistic Maya ritual and ceremony starts with a prayer in the presence of light, aromatherapy with sacred incenses, and the blessing of pure, fresh cenote water.  Fire and Air dance together in the harmonious flow of candle light, while sacred musical rhythms (conch or drums) and chants help set the spa ambiance into the frame of a Maya Ritual site.  Our healers use therapeutic organic wraps combined with gem-stone energy purification; Sastuns, blessed pure energy stones that have been charged with the moon or sun energy, are cleansed with organic sea salt after each ritual.
