Our story
Our road to Santa Maria was a long personal journey of healing from chronic Lyme disease, which led us to over 40 clinics, medical resorts and doctors in the US, Germany, Switzerland and Russia and a number of international conferences. We have tried about every procedure on the book of integrative care, from photodynamic laser protocols to electromagnetic field healing, ozone and peloid therapy. We met fellow patients with light and severe chronic symptoms, often misdiagnosed. An achieved life scientist, Yuri studied peer-reviewed research behind each method and combination.
This experience and knowledge are what we are pleased to share with our Santa Maria guests.
Most importantly, we realized that there is no such things as "knee arthritis", "chronic headache", "low thyroid hormone" or "bad teeth". Our body is an incredibly complex supersystem composed of >100 trillion cells (and 10 times that many microbes), connected by >90,000 miles of electric cables, our nervous system. Every cell, tissue and organ is intervened with everything else by the means of biochemistry, thermodynamics and quantum physics. Any local symptom is a reflection of the system's disturbance and so should be treated in the context of the entire body and mind. This holistic principle is best realized in the "P4 medicine" concept in healthcare, for Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory.
Unlike "western" medicine focused on treatment of acute conditions with pharmaceuticals and interventions, P4 model aims to detect diseases early, focus on cause in therapy and provide live-long guidelines for preventing disorders and supporting active longevity.
P4 model entails multi-facet functional diagnostics, personalized treatment programs and long term health support plans for every patient. This is the model we implement at the Santa Maria Medical Retreat.
Although new in the US, P4 model has being implied at the European medical resorts for years. Integrative part of healthcare, these resorts are famous for outstanding preventive care and long-lasting healing of chronic conditions. They succeed by combining holistic innovative therapies, restorative procedures, IV infusions and healing nutrition into individual health programs. The effect is amplified by all-inclusive 5-start accommodations, educational programs, yoga, meditation and physical activities. Not surprising that many guests return year after year, preferring to invest in disease prevention instead of hospital stays. Research shows that regular preventive care in medical resorts is one of the reasons why Europeans live 3-7 years longer than Americans.
In Santa Maria, we made adjustments for the challenging US healthcare and a new reality of on-line workspace and gig economy. We selected the procedures most effective for both health restoration, relaxation and relieve of chronic conditions. We combined procedures into effective programs with the maximum effect on the body, developed by a top preventive care doctor in Russia. We can also help to select the procedures a-la-carte in individual packages.
COVID safety
We all understand the dangers of COVID pandemic and consider COVID safety as the #1 priority.

Vera Z.
I am 67-years old and I had a surgery on my right ankle due to problems with my joints. My surgeon in Santa Barbara had offered post-surgery physical therapy, but it did not seem to be effective. After completing a treatment program at Santa Maria, I feel a noticeable improvement in both my ability to walk and relief of my pain. When I came back for a follow-up appointment with my physician and reviewing new test results, he was pleasantly surprised to see my progress. In addition, treatment that I received in Santa Maria Retreat, have helped me to improve my overall sense of well being and to increase my energy level and as well provided great boost to my immune system.

I have a long history of fibrocystic disease with no feasible solution offered by Western medicine. It was at the Santa Maria retreat that after completing a comprehensive testing and disgnostic process that I successfully went through a series of treatments which helped me with my chronic symptoms and provided much-needed pain relief. I also been able to achieve relief for ear pain which I was suffering from for nearly a year. I feel very grateful for the amount of personalized and thorough attention and the holistic approach Maria and Yuri provided in treating my symptoms. Thank you for helping me to return back to good health.

Awesome resort!!!
Place where you will feel reborn!
They provide services such as, sauna, deep tissue message, blood test for health rehabilitation, lodging accommodations, natural food - they grow their own organic foods, spa services, and many many more. A minimum you would want to stay is 7 days, however I would stay there forever. Great staff and the owners are great and amazing people! This is a must place if you're looking for alternative natural medicinal therapy.
Magical place, amazingly caring and passionate stuff. Delicious food on the top of what I really came for: to get healthier and I did! My blood sugar is at the lowest I ever had. My energy is up. I finally start sleeping through the night. Candida is gone from my blood-thanks to ozone therapy treatments. This spring I am coming back with my husband. Thank you for your passion.
What an awesome experience! I had struggled with morning allergies and could never figure out the source. Traditional methods did not help. Maria suggested Ozone treatment, which solved my problem - my morning allergies pretty much went away. On top of that, the staff is very professional, the place is beautiful. Highly recommended.
