Menlha Bruneau – founder, Hacienda del Sol I have been involved in health and healing for many years.  It has been a prime interest to me to be well and to help others also be well, holistically.  I am the founder of Hacienda del Sol and of the Kootenay school of Rebalancing bodywork. This school certified over 350 students to practice rebalancing body therapy. I am a rebalancing bodywork master and have been practicing craniosacral (biodynamic) treatment for several years. For over 10 years at Hacienda del Sol we have been hosting juice cleanses, and I have been the facilitator for many of them.  I have done a number of cleanses myself over the years and keep up my own cleanliness with 2 personal cleanses a year at Hacienda del Sol. These cleanses are highly successful here thanks to the relaxed environment offered by immersion in nature, strong facilitation, constant support, detox-specific juices, and colema therapy. The transformation is remarkable and I love to be part of this process. I am continuing to learn more about health and wellness.  It is enjoyable for me to pass on my knowledge to others which I have accumulated over the years through personal experience […]
