"There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope."
- Bernard Williams
Our therapeutic retreat is a very special project that has a personal importance to our founder -- it was inspired by our founder’s experience living with, and taking care of her mother who currently battles ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). It is designed for a wide spectrum of diseases and disorders, from neuromuscular disease to depression.
Guests stay in wheelchair/walker accessible luxury beach villas. All beach villas have en suite bedrooms, their own pool and private chef and daily maid service. Villas are appointed with state-of-the-art amenities like flat screen televisions and high speed Internet.
Our fitness plan for retreat guests features cutting edge therapies administered by our licensed physical therapist like daily electrical muscular stimulation (EMS) sessions, an established technique used by elite athletes like Olympian Usain Bolt, that is currently the subject of a US government clinical trial to study its use. Our therapist will also guide you through other non-EMS therapeutic fitness sessions. Family and friends will receive cardio-strength training from our certified personal trainer in front of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, a setting so stunning you don't even realize you're working your body.
We recognize that aggressive nutritional intervention is vital for physical and mental health -- that's why we have an acclaimed US nutritionist with expertise in utilizing nutrition to manage disease. Our detailed nutrition plan for retreat clients is designed to not only strengthen muscles, improve energy levels and potentially alter disease progression, but also incorporates the delicious local cuisine like fresh fish, guacamole, and salsas!
Our retreat also includes restorative yoga by our experienced yoga instructors and spa services at guest villas, like restorative massage, manicures, and pedicures. Guests also have the opportunity to participate in tailor-made Mayan healing ceremonies.
Most importantly, we offer retreat guests fun, a chance for those afflicted and their families to take back their joy and relax in a beautiful beach environment, away from the stress of endless rounds of doctors appointments. We accompany you on private tours of Mayan ruins like Chichen Itza, and other Riviera Maya attractions, like Xcaret and nearby cenotes!
Like our other retreats, we coordinate all details of the retreat -- airport pick-up/drop-off, accommodations at beach villa, all meals, and daily and nightly fun activities.
Although a non-medical retreat, we have access to 24 hour licensed emergency medical services if necessary; US insurance accepted
Medical release to attend our retreat from client's treating physician necessary.
