Ancient Maya were intimately connected with the natural balance of Mother Nature, respecting and caring for the environment, and at Yaxkin Spa, we are committed to restore this tradition in today’s Maya rural society. Yaxkin Spa is one of Mexico's best Eco-Spa Retreat and Mayan Holistic Spa Wellness Center; this green Spa retreat donates 10% of its profits to the environmental protection and animal welfare efforts of the Maya Nature Conservation Program, directed by Mr. Bruce A. Gordon in Chichen Itza. This program has already reforested the area with over two thousand native hardwood trees and has vigilantly kept illegal hunting of endangered animal species from occurring in the area.
Our Maya Spa healers use therapeutic organic natural wraps such as in our blue-green algae organic Spa wrap treatment: Ya'ax Tun which combined with gemstone healing energy from their sacred Sastuns, the Maya Spa healer purifies and blesses your inner pure energy. Mayan Sastun stones are charged with the moon or sun energy after being cleansed with pure raw sea salt prior to each Eco-Spa Mayan Ritual. Herbal medicine and remedies use in Yaxkin Spa are organically grown in the Hacienda Chichen property and selected by our own Mayan Spa therapists and healers. This ensures purity, quality (no sprayed pesticides) and freshness. Ix’Men Beatriz personally prepares for each ritual the herbal mix for the sancochos or herbal Mayan cleansing fusion applied at the end of each ritual to the skin to clean the impurities of the skin and removes any organic pastes or excess oils from the body.
DID YOU KNOW: Maya holistic healers are known as J-Men (male) and Ix-Men (female); they recognizes the natural energy interconnection of the human multiple bodies and energy fields. Like other ancient refined civilizations, the Maya have long understood the nature of disease, which flows within the soul as well as the physical-emotional bodies; thus, creating disturbances in the life force field or ch’ulel within a person.
“As our bodies are mostly water, we are inexorably bound to the element and the molecular changes that occur in it as a response to words, prayer, pollution, deeds, gratitude, and love."
- Dr. Masaru Emoto.
Zumpulche is a Sacred Mayan Natural Cave and sweat-bath, our Maya Spa healers and Senior shamans offer you an ancient Mayan holistic purification therapy with a mystical ceremony to purified your energy, body, and mind. This Maya spa sweat-bath ritual helps purify your ch’ulel or chi with similar therapeutic effects as the Aztec Temazcal sweat-bath, offered in the Maya Riviera and Mexico; but Zumpulche sacred rituals have far more profound mystical roots and unique Mayan healing therapeutic elements. This Maya Spa service offers you Holistic Healing and Health Issues Prevention. At Yaxkin Spa, groups of 8 to 13 guests can enjoy this therapeutic mystical experience.
PRAYER is the most powerful energy in all holistic Mayan rituals and ceremonies (a deep meditative chanting that requires proper energy balance and harmony). Mayan healers offer to Junab K’uj (God’s Spirit) and to the Yuumtsiloób (Mayan gods) their own soul energy as a Spiritual healing channel and request through prayer assistance to the healer in his work. Prayer opens the channel of healing and aids to bring balance to the person’s ch’ulel , a Mayan term meaning the life energy force between the physical and spiritual worlds. Mayan Prayers are the spoken words in reverence and in a deep state of meditation, is the power that unites us with the universe and the divine. Prayers are always repeated in numerical sequences and are accompany normally with aromatherapy or incense burning of copal and other sacred resins.
RITUALS AND CEREMONIES have tremendous spiritual and healing power. They provide the frame in which mind, emotions, soul and spirit become one, where the purification of ch’ulel can be relieve and the invasive energy be transform; thus, healing take place. Yaxkin Spa rituals are focus on balancing the inner energy flow of each person by releasing stress, anxiety and other toxic emotions (or physical ailments) from the self. Each ritual calls upon different aspects of the self to be restored to health and harmonious balance.
SPIRITUAL GUIDES, ALUXES AND OTHER NON-PHYSICAL HELPERS communicate with the Mayan Priests and Healers through intuition, insight vision, dreams and sometimes even with physical manifestations that act as conduits to instruct and guide the Mayan healer. J’men and Ix’men perform an important Mayan sacred ceremony known as K’eek to purify the soul which has a powerful spiritual connection with deities, Mayan spirits such as Aluxes, and Nature that provide the right path to bring balance, harmony and health to all the bodies that embrace the life force of a person.
BLESSING OF THE WATER is of up most importance to Mayan healer, especially to the Ix’men (female healer) because of its connection with Ix-chel, Goddess of Medicine, with the human body and the energy that flows within it. Blessed water, especially from Maya Sacred Cenotes, is a powerful element that purifies and cleans the energy within. In a Spa ritual at Yaxkin Spa, water is link to health and balance.
FIRE follows the blessing of the water as the symbol of light and energy. Fire is the element that unites us with life forces and the spiritual realm. Mayan healers use the power of fire to purify and balance our energy.
Sacred Copal is harvest in full moon and the Maya healers burned to aid healing, cleansing, and to spell that which blocks a persons’ healthy balance and energy. New Fire is offered to Junab K’uj in all Yaxkin Spa healings.
EARTH, Mayan clays and Maya medicinal plants, herbal remedies and other elements of the earth such as stones, gems, sacred wood trees, honey and corn are all part of the spiritual connection that help the Mayan healer cure and restore the life energy flow in each of us. The ancient Maya Corn Ceremony honors the Spirit of the Earth and Mother Nature as well as it reminds the people where they come from, with the help of Ix-chel the Maya goddess of medicine an a powerful spiritual healer, the Ix’men performs mystical rituals and healing ceremonies where the spiritual and physical worlds meet.
AIR is the element that carries vital energy and the spirit of life. Sound travels through air and unites with it to bring the powerful vibrations of sacred words that can heal mind, emotions and body. The healer words are spoken in harmony with peaceful breathing to directly provide the rhythm of health and balance. The spiritual power of wind, sound, and sahumados (copal smoke and other burning aromas) release harmony, and unblock the effects of stress, block energy and emotional trauma. Visions play an important assistant part of the healer’s tools.
TEMPERATURE CHANGE is of great importance to the Maya philosophy of healing. Maya people believe that rapid change in temperature is the cause of many bone pains and muscle spasms; arthritis, rheumatism, and other disorders. Many of their rituals are linked to the belief of inadequate changes of temperature through ones life daily routines. All illnesses are treated by their cool or hot relationship with energy flow levels.
MAYAN MASSAGE TECHNIQUES, HERBAL BATHS, RUBS, ORGANIC WRAPS, GEMS, STONES, SACRED SOUNDS, HERBAL CURES, OILS, etc. are some of the tools Mayan Healers commonly use to treat physical, emotional, and spiritual ailments. We recommend you try our Mayan Jade Algae Wrap: Ya'ax Tun a rich blend of 100% organic Spirulina blue-green algae rich in minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-aging oils that protect and rejuvenate the skin cells, beauty, health and flexibility. Such gifts of Mother Nature: essential natural oils, clays, herbs, algae, raw pure honey, fruits, etc. are used with utmost respect by the Mayan Healer who has an inner attuning with God’s Spirit and love; indeed, that is the most precious tool use by the Maya J’men and Ix’men healers. Love, kindness, intuitive compassion, and listening in peace are important to the healing process and health care.
