Cha Chac Rain Ritual, by Willow Spa Fairmont Mayakoba

In the Mayan language, cha means “to let go,” and Chac, the rain god, is one of the most important gods in Mayan history. We invite you to enter the Cha Chac Rain Room and leave the outside world behind. This experience begins with a traditional blessing and burning of copal incense. Then, you’ll relax on the rain table while a healing body mask of cornmeal, clay and oats is applied. Your skin is then exfoliated with an ayate cloth, followed by an overhead rinse of warm rainwater. A massage with sage oil is the final luxurious ingredient.

Considered to be one of the oldest “healing arts”, massage has long been used as a way to relieve stress, alleviate sore muscles, improve circulation and create an overall sense of well-being. Our Massage Rituals can include customized massage experiences, depending on your preferences and your therapists’ wellness suggestions. These experiences include hot stones, custom aromatherapy blends, Swedish, deep tissue or other modalities that are best suited for your needs, and that our experts are able to identify due to their great experience working with the human body.

And, of course, the best way to end a day of spa treatments is going back to your home in Mayakoba
