Holiday Renewal Cleanse

About This Event

The Holiday Renewal Cleanse is a medically supervised retreat with nutrition-based physician and master healer, Michael Klaper, M.D.  Dr. Klaper brings us years of experience and first-hand knowledge of doctor monitored cleansing from his time at True North, a water fasting retreat in California, and his own private practice.  He and his wife Alese Jones, a renowned yoga teacher, have planned a practical and educational 7 day 6 night retreat at our beautiful resort for a small group of no more than 20 participants.  

During this Holiday Renewal Cleanse, Dr. Klaper and Alese will combine their shared knowledge of science and spirituality with the natural healing forces of whole foods and pure desert mineral springs to help you create a deep cleansing of body, mind and spirit. 

Known for his ability to explain the complex workings of the body in simple terms and with entertaining examples, Dr. Klaper is recognized as a gifted teacher and insightful experienced physician.  His daily group teaching sessions, individual exchanges and personal monitoring of participants will inspire you to new heights of health and vitality.  You will learn how to thrive on a plant-based diet with daily applied nutrition coaching and fascinating classes on healthful living.

Our spa treatments are available to assist you in your cleanse week, such as: Swedish massage, lymphatic massage, abdominal massage, detoxifying body wraps and scrubs, anti-pollution and anti-aging facials as well as hydro-colon therapy, Finnish and infrared saunas and mineral spring soaks. 

We sincerely hope you will accept our invitation to join us for a magical week of cleansing and learning at our beautiful mineral spa and resort.

Venue Highlights

Our quiet property sits with an amazing view of the San Jacinto and San Gorgonio mountains close to the hiking trails. THE SPRING’s sparkling pure mineral water emerges at 170° charged with healing restorative minerals. While Desert Hot Springs has the largest geothermal pool in Southern California within its boundaries, the very hottest water is in a tiny four block area. At the center of this area lies THE SPRING Resort & Spa. Our water is simply unparalleled in its high content of calcium and magnesium to soothe the body, silica to soften the skin, sulfur and bicarbonate to heal the muscles and trace minerals, including lithium, to relax the mind.
We are 20 minutes from downtown PALM SPRINGS and 45 minutes from JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK and the INTEGRATRON SOUND BATH CENTER
