A History Of Healing
The Four Corners region has a long history of holistic healing, reaching back to over two thousand years ago when the ancient Pueblo Indians lived on this land. They used natural and spiritual healing practices that were connected to the earth and the world around them. We can still see the way that they lived in the area's architecture, most notibly in the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings.
These days, Durango is still considered a destination of holistic healing- a place to rejuvenate and transform yourself. Many people come to this region for relaxation and recuperation so that they can heal themselves while surrounded by the stunning mountain scenery. Durango and the surrounding region is home to many who practice spiritual healing arts and are passionate about these alternative medicines.
