At Family Dental Center, Steven Anderson and Jonathan Kelley fight against tooth problems with thoughtfulness and expertise.

The Herb Store furnishes proponents of natural living with myriad plant curatives, candles, aromatherapy, and other apothecary goods acquired through eco-friendly practices.

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.

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."
