Integrative health resort with Native American ties to open in August
POSTED 28 May 2015 . BY Helen Andrews
A renovated integrative wellness resort called Sunrise Springs is set to open in August among 70 acres (28 hectares) of cottonwoods, spring-fed ponds and Native American heritage in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The resort blends eastern and western therapeutic practices with Native American teachings. At the centre of the property, therefore, is a ‘medicine wheel’ that is “used as a blueprint to assist guests in understanding and addressing special life circumstances”.

The property houses 20 casitas with gas fireplaces and 32 guestrooms, a swimming pool, multiple art spaces, two dining rooms, a culinary classroom, a greenhouse, fitness studio and a 5,500sq ft (511sq m) Integrative Therapeutic Spa (ITSPA).

The ITSPA offers a wellness evaluation, nutritional assessment, acupuncture, chiropractic care, psychotherapy, stress evaluation, spiritual counselling and a wide range of spa services. The spa will be run by medical doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health professionals, integrative care specialists and massage therapists.

There will be nine treatment rooms at the property, a 1,000sq ft (93sq m) private outdoor hydrotherapy area and a boutique filled with skincare products, books, journals and other wellness-oriented items.

Programming at the resort is based on four guiding principles: ‘Nature Bathing’, ‘Digital Detox’, ‘Learning Through Experience’ and ‘Food as Medicine’.

‘Nature Bathing’ is designed to get guests in green spaces to improve their health by reducing stress. ‘Digital Detox’ means guests are encouraged to unplug and actively engage in real life connection. ‘Learning Through Experience’ is designed to help clients feel psychologically ‘well’ via meditation, yoga, fitness, Native American teachings, expressive arts, cooking, therapeutic gardening, excursions and animal interactions. The resort will offer guests a chance to bond with dogs, chickens and perhaps even horses.

The entire 90,000sq ft (8,361sq m) facility is owned by Andy Scott, who acquired the property in 2013. Scott also owns and operates Sunrise Springs’ sister resort Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs.
