Full Body Treatment
Gemstone Reflexology Treatment. Since it targets pressure points on the feet and lower legs, I figured it was the perfect way to honor my foundation. What I didn’t expect was that I would fall in love with the treatment. It relaxed me from head to toe and felt exceptionally marvelous! It’s an outstanding treatment, and is so beneficial for the body that it’s now going to become a regular part of my holistic health regimen.
My therapist Marilu was incredible. After I got cozy on the treatment table she covered my body with a sheet and guided me through a calming essential oil inhalation. Next, she applied pressure to my feet and legs in a massage-like fashion. I felt the effects of the treatment immediately throughout my entire body; everything felt good. Then, Marilu rolled gemstones along my feet and legs. These smooth stones were cool, refreshing, and added an extra element of pleasure to the experience. Later on Tere Ochoa, the Spa Director, informed me that rose quartz is said to exude a gentle energy that can calm the spirit, and the green quartz is intended to transmute negative energies into positive ones.
Reflexology is an ancient healing art from China in which different points on the feet correspond to certain parts of the body. The treatment is intended to stimulate and promote healing within the parasympathetic nervous system. It can help to improve circulation, reduce stress, alleviate pain, and restore the body’s natural balance. After the treatment concluded I was fully relaxed. My body and spirit felt nourished. I strongly recommend scheduling this treatment during your Ranch visit – your feet and your entire body will thank you.
Marma Point Therapy: is an ancient practice in which the practitioner gently places his or her fingers on the anatomical sites where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. This ancient form of treatment, is similar to acuppressure, and dates back to between 1500 — 1200 BC.
There are 107 Marma points throughout the body.
Marma Point Therapy involves using the fingers to stimulate the Marma points thereby promoting physical and mental rehabilitation.
As with Acupuncture, these points correspond to internal organs and systems of the body which react to manual stimulation.
A professional therapist isolates the Marma points and cleans them out by increasing the blood flow to the affected part of the neuro-muscular junction. They also aim to tone the surrounding muscles.
Marma Massage Today
Stimulating or massaging the marma points gives benefits to the area of their locations and improves the function of the connecting organs.
The marma massage itself is approximately 60 to 90 minutes of duration, and should be followed by steam bath or warm shower.
The marma massage can be used as a part of a rejuvenation therapy or it could be used as preventative measure from unwanted conditions.
Either way, marma massage is a really useful way to help improve or maintain an individual’s health balance.

Combining the healing energy of crystals and reflexology therapy, Gemstone Reflexology offers a holistic approach to triggering the body’s self-healing energies to deal with a large number of mental and physical disorders, ranging from heartache to heart disease. The treatment is based on using eight gemstone wands--agate, amethyst, fluorite, heliotrope, rock crystal, rose quartz, rutilated quartz, and sodalite--that allow users to direct the healing power of the crystals to activate designated pressure points.
Every gemstone has specific healing properties. When crafted into wands, these gems enable the patient to apply the perfect amount of pressure on the appropriate acupressure point. The energies of the crystal combine with the energies released by the pressure on the reflexology point to produce a powerful force for healing. Readers are provided a system of kinetic analysis to determine the appropriate stone and pressure point for their specific condition. Sodalite, for example, has a beneficial effect on mental health, which is increased when applied to the pressure points corresponding to the head; agate helps in the treatment of skin disorders; and amethyst restores vigor. The book contains illustrated instructions that show the treatment areas for a wide range of conditions, including earaches, headaches and migraines, back and joint pain, colds and flu, low blood pressure, intestinal cramps, cardiovascular disease, and depression

The Gemstone Reflexology treatment at the Villas Health Spa at Rancho La Puerta left me and my feet feeling relaxed and relieved. Before the treatment I believed I carried most of my stress in my shoulders, however the experience revealed that I also carry a great deal of stress in my feet. After the treatment, I felt like I was wearing my favorite fluffy slippers. My feet were very happy.
Marilu started the session on a relaxing note by waving a summery citrus oil in the air. Then, with my eyes covered, she cleaned my feet and gave them a slight shake before gently applying pressure to different points on my sole. These energy points, she said, correspond to different parts of the body and release energy, stimulating circulation. Marilu rolled a round quartz ball around my soles using a steady pressure and motion. The ball felt cool on my heels and its smooth surface felt good. Next, Marilu used a flat smooth quartz stone that was about the size of a bar of soap to continue the massage. She glided it across my foot, triggering multiple pressure points all at once.
When Marilu was done with my right foot she repeated the process on my left, slowly using her fingers to apply pressure before using the stones. By the time she was done with both feet, a highly enjoyable 50 minutes had passed. It wasn’t until I started walking that the full benefits of the treatment became more apparent. I felt lighter, less burdened and the ground felt softer. I savored each step and felt less hurried. Marilu’s touch and pressure made my feet so happy that I drove home from The Ranch barefoot!
