The award winning Uma Spa was established in 2007 at our sister hotel in northern Chile, Tierra Atacama, and replicated here in Patagonia. We offer our guests a wide choice of services in surroundings designed to induce calm and relaxation through aromas, colors and textures.
Massage therapy is proven to relax muscles, benefit the circulation, eliminate tension and increase lymph flow. The alternative therapies we offer are designed to open the “prana” or life force, thereby increasing positive thoughts and opening the consciousness of the body. Through these treatments, we aim to balance the vital energy of our guests, so we invite you to care for your body and spirit until you reach a state of total relaxation and well being.
The Uma Spa facilities include an indoor swimming pool with hydro massage and cascades, an outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, a rest and relaxation area, locker rooms, and lush towels and robes. Come before your treatment and enjoy a steam bath or sauna and a swim, and then afterwards use the relaxation areas for as long as you like.
As legend has is it, Mongolian Warriors invented “Chuak´a” to rid their bodies of “fear” before they went into battle. This essential massage is as much a physical experience as it is an emotional one. The technique is to work with the whole body, loosening the muscles and emptying the mind, which allows for optimal circulation and blood flow while eliminating pent-up frustration or tension.
According to the practice of Chuak´a, the body records stress and traumas, then over time, these areas of strain turn into larger problems from anxiety to bad backs. Most specifically these “fears” that the body holds on to are located in the feet, knees, neck and back. The Chuak´a massage utilizes fingers, fists and a small wooden tool to help relax the muscle tissue. It also incorporates the use of vortex points and acupuncture, which help relax the mind and balance the immune system while ridding the body of toxins.
