Natural Awakenings Tucson

Medicinal Bath Soaks and More at Healing Spirit

In the center of the Tucson desert lies an oasis. Healing Spirit is a magical place to regenerate the spirit, connect with the mind and heal the body. An energy can be felt upon entering the space that forces an exhale and allows one to leave the busy thoughts and stress of the day outside the door.
Owner and operator, Dr. Jasmine May, NMD, greets patrons with a cup of tea and truly embodies the term “healer”. Her passion for providing patients with alternative paths to traditional or allopathic medicine can be seen everywhere in her “heart-centered” sanctuary. This healing boutique features a team of professionals that provide hydrotherapy or soak baths, numerous forms of body work and natural herbs.
Based on 12 years of working with plant medicines, May has also crafted her own line of CBD products to target the endocannabinoid system for specific support to pain, anxiety, sleeplessness and withdrawal from chemical substances. She is frequently a last resort for many who have exhausted all options as to what ails them. “I want to give people back their power over their bodies and help them to find their own inner healer,” she says.
Many of her clients find May through various methods, but soon realize that they have found a healthcare professional who views the mind, body and spirit as one. Her holistic care philosophy includes several alternative modalities, but focuses the Healing Spirit on the power of water combined with medicinal herbs to heal. The use of water for various treatments (hydrotherapy) is probably as old as mankind. Hydrotherapy is one of the basic methods of treatment widely used in the system of natural medicine, which is also called water therapy, aquatic therapy, pool therapy and balneotherapy.
May uses contrast hydrotherapy, which allows the body to experience the various physiological benefits of soaking in hot water (104 degrees) and dipping into cold water (32 degrees) for intervals over a period of one hour. The primary goals of inducing the dilation and constriction of blood vessels are to promote responses that may assist the body in stimulating metabolism for weight loss, detox or elimination of waste, and modifying pain from exercise or other muscle strains, in addition to other applications.
In the main room, Healing Spirit features two cedar tubs which include ionizer and ozone technology. The large cedar bath can accommodate up to six people for a group experience or celebration, and the cold tubs include a modern bath for plunges and a deep copper claw foot tub for customized herbal and full body soaks. Separate or individual rooms provide privacy for vaginal steams, bodywork and CBD or other herbal scrubs prior to a customized soak.
To enhance the healing power of the soak baths and body work, May recommends infusing herbs into the process, which can help reduce stress, soothe skin, combat infection and provide the body with numerous other benefits to overall health. Her shelves include various herbs from which to select that are organic and provide a personalized dose of healing power.
Evidence that plant and herbal medicine has been used in the healing process date back at least 5,000 years, when 12 recipes were found on a clay tablet in Sumeria that referred to over 250 various plants. Similar indications have been discovered around the world and are still used as a main form of healing for countries such as China, India and parts of Europe. According to the National Center for Biotechnology, contemporary science has acknowledged medicinal plants’ active action, and it has included in modern pharmacotherapy a range of drugs of plant origin, known by ancient civilizations and used throughout the millennia.
And finally, patrons can choose to end their time at Healing Spirit with a centering experience on the amethyst Bio-Mat. This device uses a combination of amethyst stones and fabrics to generate infrared rays that are transferred to the body in order to increase blood and lymph flow. Regular sessions on the mat could benefit the body by relieving pain, relaxing muscles, improving sleep and reducing stress.
To experience the Healing Spirit is to give the mind and body a gift. The sensual impact of water, herbs, body work and ambience is a treat that one will not long forget. There is an immediate desire to share the experience with others and to come back as soon as time will allow. May understands that each of us has the power to heal our bodies and her goal is to assist everyone to provide a “heart-centered approach to healing—that works.”
