FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH JOURNEY
A wellness programme in a ceremonial and contemplative spaces to calm the mind and open the heart
Programme goals: The focus of this programme is to restore the body and soul through the essence of flow theme in sacred Mayan pools, which is the central point of a healing journey, granting a curative base and a tranquil setting. Across the Yucatan these pools are born from the depths of the earth where they are connected like a circulatory system, an organism which flows and has a magical beating pulse. Considered sacred by the Maya, these pools were points to the underworld, portals to the unconscious and the afterlife.
The Journey begins with a beautiful Mayan Welcome Ritual which recognizes the four points of the compass and acts as a portal into experiencing the here and now, followed by an extensive circuit of hydrotherapy which includes contrast water plunge pools, steam room with eucalyptus aromatherapy, sauna etc.
All treatments here interweave elements of traditional Mayan rituals and advanced therapeutic methods, which immediately take you into a world of ancestral mysticism and sensory indulgence. ‘The Fountains’ Flow’ is Chable’s signature ritual begins with a Welcome Ritual on the banks of the cenote, using the power of the waters as a source of rebirth. This is followed by Flotation Therapy in the Flotarium tank, providing a deep tranquilizing effect. A scrub with herb-infused salts renews the skin and exclusive lymphatic drainage massage helps to instigate the process of internal healing. To end the treatment, the therapist will offer an aromatic anointment, matching mind and inspiration.
The Flotation therapy is especially effective in releasing physical tension, even stress accumulated over months; it raises the level of endorphins and alleviates hormonal stress. The deep state of relaxation which the body can reach during Flotation Therapy is equivalent to six hours of the deepest sleep. The experience of calm, restoration and balance is unique, with lasting benefits.
Chable Janzu Water Massage will help you to release blocked energy and promote a state of total relaxation. Your soul, while contained in the water, will allow the energy to flow harmoniously.
Other body rituals like Nirvana Stress Relief Massage, Flow of the Tide Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Rain Goddess Flow and few beauty rituals will be offered as part of this wellness programme to make you feel rejuvenated, relaxed, renewed, revitalised and beautiful inside out.

TREE OF LIFE JOURNEY
A wellness programme in a ceremonial and contemplative space to find inner balance, where harmony, introspection and stability reign.
Programme goals: The focus of this programme is transformation, stability and manifestation through the essence of balance theme with the help of ‘ceiba’ – a mythical tree. The Ceiba exists in three different realms: the branches represent the heavens where the gods dwell and a higher conscious can be found, the roots represent the underworld the subconscious, while the tree trunk represents human life, the place of transformation and change. In Chablé, the majestic Ceibas in their garden align everyone on a Tree of Life Journey with this myth and remind us of their duality.
The Journey begins with Signature Life Balance Ritual which channels the Maya understanding of the universe through therapies which integrate the entire being. This ritual is focused on relaxing the nervous system and purifying the body to make room for the internal peace necessary to live a balanced life.
Mayan Ritual, another part of this programme, balances the energies of the four corners of the earth and orients you in time and space. Afterwards, an exfoliation with nutrient-rich Herbal Salts and a volcanic clay wrap aid deep cleansing and liberation. The Chablé Precious Stones massage helps release stagnant energy and promote stability connected to the earth, while anointing the crown of the head with aromatherapy oils gently awakens the mind. The ritual concludes with a special Chablé closing, intended to honour the continuity of the circle of life.
The Balance Healing ritual is an intensive treatment which was created for tension relief, to relax sore muscles and has the ability to absorb emotions, remove blocked energy and connect with the healing properties of the Earth. A balancing full body ritual that embodies in us the image of the Tree of Life by combining a deeply leaning Mayan Compress massage with Sound and Stone Healing and a nourishing anointment of the head and scalp.
