The Wet Spa
Our approach to healing is very simple. We use an exclusive hand-blended, plant-based range of Tierra Santa muds, scrubs and essential oils inspired by generations of shamanic wisdom in South America. These homeopathic ingredients are activated by heat and steam, resulting in profound physical, mental and spiritual purification and restoration.
The Wet Spa at Tierra Santa
For an invigorating pre-treatment experience, guests are invited to enjoy the Wet Spa one hour prior to their treatment. Guests can add our unique Bathing Ritual, at an additional cost, with ingredients of our own organic hand-crafted range of muds, scrubs and oils activated by heat and steam, resulting in the ultimate cleansing and restoration of mind, body and spirit.
1. Staging Area
After a warm welcome, we will prepare you for the spa journey. Hang your robe, collect a peshtamal towel and slice slivers of handmade soap into a copper bowl. Settle your mind with deep cleansing breaths and you’re ready to begin.
Here, if added, you will receive your choice of muds, scrubs, butters and oils available at reception. Choose from one of each category to create your own Tierra Santa experience with these unique South American healing ingredients:
Choice of verbena, aloe vera or mimosa scrub
Choice of calendula and bentonite clay or an aloe vera calming mask
Nourishing Oils and Butters:
Choice of sandalwood, lavender, eucalyptus oil, or verbena butter.
Every guest’s journey starts and ends in the Waterfall, a shower that prepares the body for heat therapy, and provide final cooling and cleansing before departure.
