Thermal baths have been used medicinally since ancient times.

Pet Therapy

Dogs specifically trained for this therapy will visit our center to participate in an interactive way with our residents which activates dormant areas of their memory improving the quality of their lives in a direct positive way.

Grandparent Therapy

This therapy is an interactive encounter conducted between residents and students from local schools which provides powerful links between children and residents of our center achieving wonderful therapeutic relationships to both parties. The revival of affective and family structures in the elderly leads to amazing results rehabilitating and enhancing their familial presence. 

Validation Therapy

Inside every person with a “dementia” problem exists a human being anxious to tell us the way they see life. We still have many obscure areas that relate to the causes of Alzheimer, but when certain precise techniques are performed, it is possible to wake them up even for a short moment that will produce a rehabilitating experience for our residents.

Equine Therapy

Interaction with special horses trained for this purpose has been excellent for the reactivation of motor centers specifically among children with cerebral palsy and autism. In 2002, Dr. Valencia started using Equine Therapy for people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, achieving amazing results, arousing smiles in residents which had shown no feelings before. Dr. Valencia began using equine therapy in Colombia and was the first to bring this therapy to Mexico, which is exclusively offered at Casa Cieneguita in a guided and systematic rehabilitative manner.

Alive Inside

This therapy is also called music therapy. Once we know the personal history of the resident, it will be possible to wake up areas of the brain specifically in those that have “dementia” problems bringing them to a level of happiness similar to the joy they felt in the past when they heard the same music. 

Art Therapy

Thru specific guided sessions using improvised art, our psychologist. Dr. Katie Van Doren, can reduce depression and/or anxiety which produces chronic illnesses. It has been proven that imagination and creativity in convalescent patients can help realize unique potentials never lived before and attain a better quality of life.
