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.
