Translated to English as “The House of the Moon,” La Hacienda de la Luna takes inspiration from this celestial symbol of femininity to create a space wholly dedicated to creativity, intuition, and healing. Serving as a wellness spa, yoga studio, art gallery, and bed and breakfast, the center strives to help bodies find a balance between their natural masculine and feminine energies through services that range from massage to drawing workshops. Various spa treatments help the body shed toxins both inside and out, whether via infrared sauna sessions or body scrubs blended from mineral sea salts and therapeutic essential oils. Bodies find their center and rediscover the backs of their knees during guided yoga classes, and those searching for artistic inspiration may find it by perusing a number of collections from talented painters and artists who design textiles and glasswork.
Housed inside a 300-year old adobe-style fortress believed to be one of the oldest inns in the nation, La Hacienda de la Luna also hosts a limited number of first-come, first-served rooms for guests, whose balance reset takes more than a few hours. Settled upon land that was once sacred to the Tiguex tribe, its varied history found it offering respite to everyone from missionaries to weary stagecoach travelers, making it well suited to host the rejuvenating activities that fill its 2-foot-thick walls today. Many claim that the spirits of the past still inhabit the serene site, though the faint of heart need not worry as La Hacienda de la Luna's owners describe the energies as "all welcoming."
At the three locations of Sun Care Spray Tan & Skin Care Salon, customers use sunless spray booths, light therapy, and tanning beds to help get toned and bronzed. Beds of varying strengths and Mystic Tan booths allow customers to add color to their skin without napping on freshly painted benches in the park, and beds filled with pink-glowing bulbs help to tone skin. The salon's red-light therapy aims to painlessly promote circulation, fortify cellular walls in order to increase firmness, and banish eczema, stretch marks, and acne, while the hydration steam pod helps cleanse the skin and promote moisture retention.
From their tranquil salon, the Renew Skin and Nails aestheticians soothe, surface, and soften their clients' bodies with a range of relaxing spa treatments. Facials target a wide variety of skin maladies, including dryness, acne, and permanent-marker clown makeup. Body scrubs and hair-removal treatments leave curves smooth and supple. To relieve yourself of pent-up stress or pain, ask for a deep-tissue massage, in which therapists target stubborn knots.
