Rebalancing Bodywork & Deep Tissue Massage

We are the home of the world-renowned School of Rebalancing founded by Menlha Bruneau (also founder of Hacienda del Sol). Menlha has personally trained our Rebalancing massage therapists. Rebalancing is profound deep tissue massage technique that works on the fascia, muscles and joints. It releases old muscular tensions, relaxes and opens the joints and balances the whole energetic system of the body. All of our Rebalancing Massage Practitioners are trained to work on specific physical issues but if your just looking for a soothing relaxation massage – this massage is also the one for you. Make sure to talk with your practitioner about your specific needs and desires and they will design the right treatment for you.

90 minutes – $140. If you wish you to purchase a 10 session treatment package the cost is $1,400 (You need to be staying with for a minimum of 14 nights)

Thai oil & Thai Zen Magic

Experience pure bliss while your practitioner moves around your body, applying deep tissue where needed in order to release toxins, emotions, stuck energy, and muscle tension. She may or may not use oils, and may do the session on the floor or on the table. This session is an experience that you don’t want to miss.

90 minute – $140 & 120 minute – $170

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.

60 minutes – $130

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Within us all there is a silent system working to keep us healthy – the lymph system. Without it our bodies would swell up like balloons, swamping our cells with stagnant fluid. The lymph systems impact is so huge that many don’t realize that minor aches and pains, low energy or susceptibility to colds may be due to a sluggish lymph system. If you are here to detox then this session is a must.

If you are here to detox then this session is also a must.

and embark on an unforgettable Costa Rican experience!

  • One of the things we struggle with with the wellness industry, is that it calls us to be constantly seeking wellness outside ourselves. Don’t get us wrong, there are so many amazing experts, resources, and products out there, being lead by amazing people with great intentions. Still, this is our friendly reminder to start your wellness journey by going inward first. Check in with your body, your mind, your breath. How do you feel? What do you need? What makes sense for you? Then search out what you’re in need of. Getting lost in the sea of wellness products, info, and what everyone else is doing can be a slippery slope, because it doesn’t seem like it’s inherently wrong. It’s *healthy* right? 
But we believe the true path to wellness comes from connecting within, and doing what’s right for you, not what everyone else says!
At HDS, we help you make your own decisions about what works for you, and teach how to work with your own unique body, not against.
We’ve also been exploring new (and fun ways) to deliver a more personalized approach to wellness experiences, because there really is no one size fits all in wellness. So stay tuned, because some fun things are happening this fall 😘
  • This week was a big week here at @haciendadelsolcr 
Every year in wet season, hundreds of thousands of Olive Ridley sea turtles make their way out of the water and onto the beaches to each lay 80-100 eggs, before heading back to sea. While this most often happens at night, our guests were lucky to catch a few day-time turtles making their way onto some nearby beaches. Turtles born on these beaches are known for travelling as far as India, but always remember their home beach - their birth place, where the females return to, to lay their own eggs.
We can’t wait for these little turtle babies to start hatching! Which takes about 45-55 days depending on temperatures.
  • We fully endorse chasing waterfalls. (And we love taking you to some of our local hidden gems - so you can get a little extra TLC time, off the beaten path 💦)
  • Nature is the best medicine. With summer time hitting the northern hemisphere make sure your summer is spent watching more sunsets than Netflix. Go out for a walk. Get your bare feet on the ground. Breath in the fresh air. Notice the way the breeze moves through the trees. Get back to nature and embrace every moment this summer. Your body and mind will thank you 😘😘

  • Movement and exercise are a great way to recover from stress. But often, our high intensity, “no pain no gain” mentality when it comes to exercise actually puts your nervous system on higher alert than when you started - preventing your body from entering rest and digest mode, where you can fully recover. A great tip for using exercise to balance your body and mind: after exercising spend a few minutes sitting or lying down (savasana anyone?) and try to completely relax your body, and steady your breathing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So who says you need to escape alone to achieve true wellness? Join us this summer with three friends and you’ll each receive the gift of 15% off your stay. 😘
