Healing Offerings

Professional local therapists offer Willka T’ika guests optional Andean SPA treatments, including massage and facials.

Crystal light therapy sessions and outdoor floral solar baths under the southern skies are also available. Individual spa and healing arts services may be scheduled by appointment upon arrival at Willka T’ika.


Willka T’ika offers a range of therapeutic spa treatments to restore the body.

Massage styles include Andean massage, aromatherapy massage, hot stone massage, and shiatsu.

Rejuvenating Willka T’ika facials use natural products infused with ingredients from our healing gardens. Experience the benefits of a masque suffused with the ancient energy of fruit from our thousand-year-old lucuma tree, or with honey made by bees visiting Willka T’ika’s flowers.

Reflexology treatments revitalize the body through pressure applied to reflex zones on the feet. Our reflexology treatments incorporate the healing benefits of salt from the nearby Maras salt farms, or traditional aromatherapy essential oils.

Solar Baths

Experience an outdoor floral bath under a velvet night sky bejeweled with the Milky Way.

The unique solar baths, created from stone and set in secluded garden spots, are heated by the sun during the day. At night the water is infused with flowers, medicinal herbs, and medicinal Maras salt. Enjoy a luxurious soak under the stars before bed.


Catering to all levels and interests of yoga, our professional yoga teachers offer new and classic forms of yoga, adapted to your group’s needs (minimum group size is only 4). Yoga classes are perfect to help balance out your hiking adventures or get you moving after a day of relaxation, and are held in one of our beautiful fully equipped yoga studios.

Ceremony- Sound Healing. Alexandre Tannous

Sound Healing

Sound Ceremonies (or what is commonly known as “Sound Healing”) have the power to penetrate our habitual thought patterns, permitting us to reduce our mental activity and reach a profound state of relaxation. With a variety of beautiful instruments from around the world, our talented musician will help you balance your mental and physical equilibrium and reach a place of internal harmony.

Cacao Ceremony

Cacao Ceremony

Cacao is a sacred “teacher” plant that helps us open our hearts and connect with our higher self. The delicious, chocolate beverage is prepared with love by our staff and served in a musical, meditative ceremony by a shamanic facilitator. The sweetness of this ceremony can cause deep relaxation or animated dancing, or both.

Crystal Light Therapy

Relax and rejuvenate as your energy centers return to balance.

Crystal light therapy combines color, light, quartz crystals, and music to clear and realign the body’s chakras. This gentle half-hour treatment encourages healing of the body and mind and leaves you feeling revitalized and refreshed. Follow the session with a cup of fresh herbal tea and quietly sit in one of the Seven Chakra Gardens to maximize and integrate the healing experience.

Sweatlodge Altar

Sweat Lodge and Plunge Pool


Spend an afternoon with a complete detoxification experience, restoring body and soul while gazing at the stunning Pumahuanca mountains. Small groups can pre-reserve our homemade Sweat Lodge or Umpina Wasi. After this profound perspiration and inner cleansing, cool off in our medicinal plunge pool or Hampi Yaku. We will infuse your restorative bath with the sacred plant essence of your choice. Our homemade hydrosols include Lavender, Eucalyptus, Muña, Ruda or Molle, all harvested and distilled at Willka T’ika.
