Biodynamic Craniosacral

This session is done with Menlha Bruneau (founder of Hacienda del Sol). She has worked in Craniosacral for over 20 years. If you don’t know about Cranioscacral please read this carefully before booking this treatment. This session could be interpreted as an energy session because clients will be fully clothed and Menlha’s touch will be very light and mostly focused on the head, feet or sacrum. Although it might feel like an energetic clearing session (such as reiki) there is a lot more going on. Menlha is actually working with the cerebrospinal fluid in the spine surrounding the whole brain in order to create a free flow of the fluid. Creating a free flow of this fluid is essential for the entire nervous system to function properly. If you don’t have a free flow of fluid throughout the whole body there can be any complication and or pain. Common side effects of this is stress, tension, anxiety, poor sleep, constant pain in the body, hyperactivity, poor concentration ( and so many more). Please talk with Menlha to find out if this treatment is right for you.

  • The great debate going down @haciendadelsolcr: do these qualify as tacos 🌮?? We say yes, but some say no. But what really makes a taco a taco!? Please weigh it here! Maybe it’s the lack of tequila on the side!? Chia flax gluten free #raw #keto shell, cashew #vegan cheese, kale (from our garden), and grilled portobellos! #wholefoods

  • So many of you have asked us for the recipe for the “burger buns” 😋😋
It’s a little labour intensive but totally worth it!
Burger Buns
This recipe makes enough dough for 22 slider buns (including top and bottom)
* 1 ½ cup almond meal
* 1 cup coconut meat blended with 1 cup of water to create a smooth consistency
* 4 tbsp ground chia seed
* ¼ cup flax seed meal
* 2 cups ground coconut  flour (ground to make a flour)
* 1 tablepsoon olive oil
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1. Grind the almonds into a meal.
2. Blend the 1 cup coconut meat  with 1 cup water until smooth and add the mixture to the almond mill
3. In a vita mix grind the chia seeds with the flax seeds and add the dry mixture to the coconut and almond mixture
4. Grind the dried coconut in the vita-mix to make a flour, then add it to the other mixture
5. Place parchment paper on a hard flat surface and press the burger bun “dough” evenly onto the parchment paper. Using a hard edged round cookie cutter, cut out the round shapes. Discard the extra dough. Place the burger bun rounds in the dehydrator for 24 hours or until they are firm. Do not let them get too crispy otherwise they will break when you bite into the burger.
