Sanctuary Provides Natural Facials and Therapeutic Massages to Santa Fe Locals

By Elisha Neubauer

With a focus on organic beauty products, Sanctuary is exactly what its name says it is -- a getaway from the modern world.

Sanctuary Santa Fe is exactly what it sounds like -- a sanctuary. It's a warm, inviting space where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of your daily life and find a comforting calm, a place where you can relax and be pampered.

Sanctuary Santa Fe was opened, as owner Kerstyn Porsch likes to say, with a bang. In 1996, Porsch launched a DaySpa in her guesthouse- complete with fireplaces, a hot tub, a swimming pool, and stunning views of the Jemez Mountains. This was only the start and Porsch quickly realized the need for an even better location.

"Now I've moved right into the heart of Downtown, next to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum," states Porsch. "It's a convenient location for visitors and locals alike, since I have free parking."

You'll find your entire trip to the Sanctuary will be a revitalizing and rejuvenating experience. "Our relaxing atmosphere will prepare body and mind for wellness services," Porsch details. Although the ambiance will set the tone for your encounter, it's the treatments, obviously, that really take the main stage focus.

According to Porsch, there are several additional benefits to many of their treatments that cover more than just relaxing the day away. She states that a Hot Stone Massage can alleviate muscle tension and misalignments, while the Spa's excellent facial treatments (which include Microdermabrasion and Radio Frequency) and Ultrasound and Oxygen Facials can help reduce stress throughout the body. Deep hydration, also offered on-site, can nourish your body while state of the art machines regenerate the deeper levels of the skin to increase cell turnover and cell health.

"Recent Trends, publications, and scientific studies indicate organic skincare can benefit the skin much more than products laced with chemicals that the body has to rid itself of," Porsch informs us. She tells us that larger pores as we get older are currently being linked to drugstore products, as they carry several combinations of chemicals which our body has to then rid itself of, some of which, Porsch states, have been connected to cancer.

"For me, the key to gentle purification and effectiveness of everyday beauty products lies in providing naturally and organically sourced ingredients, many which assist through herbs and minerals in detoxifying the skin and effectively combat aging," she explains. "There have been ground breaking new formulas that are naturally sourced, almost 100% organic, and prolific in showing good results."

Porsch knows a thing or two about this kind of thing, as she's had over 20 years as an esthetician, with another 16 as a licensed massage therapist. She adds, "Consumers are becoming more educated and discerning when it comes to being healthy."
