There is nothing quite as relaxing as a great massage done by a skilled therapist. Clients visit us from all over New Mexico and west Texas to experience it at Blue Lotus. It’s worth the trip!
Have you ever gotten up from the massage table feeling as if years have been taken off your physical body? Have you experienced an overall sense of well-being and total relaxation where tensions in the body and the mind seem to have melted away, and you left with the feeling that all the right spots have been addressed?
Massage treatments at Blue Lotus become truly amazing when awareness and presence are applied by the therapist. All intention is guided towards the well-being of the client. A certain amount of genuine care is felt at Blue Lotus, which creates fantastic massage experiences. When a skilled therapist really listens to the client, cares about their needs and focuses full attention and energy onto the client, a sort of magic happens. This is what makes a great massage. Here at the Blue Lotus Day Spa in Ruidoso, this level of presence and awareness is our focus and clear intention.
“Our mission is to provide client-centered treatments where the client’s well-being comes first. Our treatments and classes are based on the premise that presence and awareness heal, and that this element of our PRESENCE is the most important element we can bring to the session. Our care for the client, our attention to their needs and our utmost focus on the session itself provides a healing sacred space in which the client can feel safe to open up, relax, and heal themselves. We are not healers, but facilitators of a healing process which originates within the client.
Further, we seek to create a satisfying and cohesive work environment where we function as a team to help each other provide the above for our clients, while supporting each other to receive the self-care we need to show up best for our treatments day after day, session after session. We aim to help each other every step of the way and treat each other like family, which means working through conflicts when they exist, celebrating each other’s joys and successes and laughing as often as possible” – Shiva Reinhardt, Founder of the Blue Lotus Day Spa
Along with client-centered treatments being our top priority, we educate new massage therapists in the importance of this key element. In our massage certification program and our yoga teacher trainings, we emphasize the importance of presence and awareness. Many of our graduates are now licensed and certified professionals working at the Blue Lotus. Our next massage certification program is coming up in October 2019. We will also be offering a yoga teacher training soon. Information for our upcoming classes can be found on our website.
