As soon as you walk through the door of Carapan, the dusky lighting, the aroma of pinon incense, the Native American artifacts, and the Gregorian chants in the background transport you from New York City to New Mexico.  In fact, Carapan feels like an outpost of Ten Thousand Waves, the famous Santa Fe spa.  You are greeted with options of hot cider and tea; and antique wooden cabinet serves surprisingly, aromatherapy redolent of cedar and sage, is a specialty.  If you have chronic pain or an injury, you might prefer to opt for one of the excellent medical massages.
