Here’s Where to Tap Into Your Inner Wellness in Palm Springs
Written By: Dr. Paula Trimble-Familetti Palm Springs Retreats
The beautiful desert of the Greater Palm Springs area offers a myriad of activities for your getaway weekend. Hike the scenic trails, dine in delicious restaurants, visit cultural centers or just chill by the pool—the common thread is that all of these activities can relax and refresh you. Yet, there are also many places to meditate, refocus and spiritually heal yourself in this magnificent region. From a Friday evening drum circle in the heart of downtown Palm Springs to a private sound bath in the outskirts of Joshua Tree, check out these six spiritual retreats in Palm Springs and find the one that speaks to the inner you.
Palm Springs Spiritually
Grounded in the Desert Palm Springs Retreats
Massage and spiritual healing are big parts of self-care. According to Director of Good Vibes Ali Schaeffer and Creative Director Jenn Parks, “Our focus sets us apart from other spas. Our crew is passionate about the services they offer. You can teach technique, but you cannot teach heart.” All therapists on-deck are empaths who create a great healing space. Added bonus: all partners of Grounded Bodyworks are women-owned brands who believe in clean beauty, environmental mindfulness and locally sourced ingredients.
Native Knowledge: Parks recommends scheduling online three to four weeks in advance through the user-friendly bot Karma. She can get you scheduled quick!

Wellness Sounds in a Silent Landscape Palm Springs Retreats
Notice the peace and quiet of the surrounding desert. Enter the Integratron for a sound bath, and your senses will be elated by the scent of Palo Santo incense, the gleam of polished wood in the beautifully arched dome and finally the vibration of 30 quartz crystal bowls. Meant to focus on chakras and bring inner peace, their sound is as much deeply felt as heard.

Sound Bath Palm Springs
Float your problems away in float therapy. Suspended in 93-degree, Epsom salt-saturated water your body relaxes and releases pain, your mind calms and your spirit balances with your mind and body. The freedom of weightlessness combined with a sensory-controlled environment lowers stress, lessens tension, and provides relaxation and rejuvenation.
