Trusted Property Maintenance & Restoration Manager

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: At age 18 I read the Adele Davis book 'Lets Eat Right to Keep Fit.' That was 56 years ago. That was my bible. I have been on the path to health and nutrition ever since. Too many people today encourage diseases by their poor nutrition and by overeating. Today we MUST supplement our nutrition with appropriate vitamins and minerals because our many foods are lacking those essential elements that we need to sustain a good long and healthful life. Desert life fits right into a healthful way of life. Plus we now have a Trusted Property Maintenance & Restoration Manager. Lots of new changes. This beautiful Glass House is my RETREAT.

Why Desert Hot Springs:
I fell in love with the gardens on this 1.2 acre property. The Round Glass House is a dream come true. Wild life is abundant. When I stay here I go no where else. I just sit and look at the beauty and the squirrels, chipmunks, quail, roadrunners, cottontails, and an occasional coyote. Nite sunsets with bright stars!!! Shining all over the universe! Also have a Trusted Property Maintenance & Restoration Manager

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Only 6 blocks to the famous Spas of Desert Hot Springs. This includes a very special place called WE CARE. (http://www.wecarespa.com/grounds.shtml) Detox Spa Grounds Our Landscaping is Charming Many guests find the We Care Spa grounds and detoxification facility are some of the best things about us. Not only is the landscaping lush, peaceful and filled with nature and interesting sculpture, but our architecture is an eclectic mix of the work of local artists and architects. Spiritual Detoxification Happens with Healing Installations Another unique facet of our detoxification spa is the healing installations that are a permanent part of the We Care Spa; they are not only unique and beautiful but they play an important role in the detoxification process and spiritual attunement we offer you. These installations are: The Ancient Labyrinth is one of the Universal Symbols of Transformation. The Temple of Gravity: Created for Burning Man, this is an art piece to observe. Floating Bed: Lay spread-eagle on the Floating Bed and meditate as it gently rocks you deeply into yourself. The Medicine Wheel is a structure that has been created and re-created by indigenous peoples for centuries for it’s astronomical, healing and teaching power. Far Infra-Red Sauna: The newest of the installations at We Care Spa is a one-of-a-kind architecturally. Exercise is a Daily Part of Your Detox Program; Our Specialized Equipment At We Care Spa we have a customized approach to exercise with very specialized detox equipment to be used each day. Our detox specialized detox equipment (which is found all over the property) has one goal in mind; that is DETOXIFCATION. Of course, we do want to create movement and exercise while you are juice fasting and cleansing but the KIND OF MOVEMENT is as important as burning calories or fat. Following we’ll explore where what and how our specialized equipment deepens your detoxification.
