- Las Ondas, a rhythmic massage designed to help the body let go of its old patterns, release deep-seated tension and bring a renewed sense of vitality. “Onda” can be translated to “waves,” so this treatment mimics the flow and fluidity of the Pacific Ocean.
- El Cuerpo Ritual begins with a yerba maté foot soak that leads into a deep, full-body exfoliation using natural bamboo fibers and mango seed—a nod to the wellness rituals of Latin America’s past.
