Introducing the

6 Pillars of Healthy Living™ Program


When Post Ranch opened its doors in 1992, our goal was to create the premier, luxury, romantic getaway, bolstered by strong wellness components alongside amenities and activities designed to help guests relax and reconnect, with nature, their partner and themselves.

Over the course of the last few months we have heard from so many guests about the stress and anxiety they have experienced as a consequence of the devastating pandemic. With a growing awareness of the importance of mental and emotional health, along with the recent issuance of Monterey County’s Stay-Home order, Post Ranch has partnered with BlueWave Medicine and its founder, renowned integrative medicine physician, Dr. Brad Jacobs, MD MPH, to offer the 6 Pillars of Healthy Living™, a new wellness and stress reduction program.

Presented in conjunction with Kristine Huffman, LICSW of Hutchinson Consulting, LLC, the program revolves around Dr. Jacobs’ 6 Pillars of Healthy Living™ platform, and is designed to help guests cope with the stress of the pandemic, improve resiliency & mental clarity, optimize restorative sleep, and experience the healing quality of outdoor activities and exercise. The program offers essential travelers the opportunity to return to nature, quiet the mind and reconnect with self and partner, while utilizing wellness practices designed to focus on both mental and physical well-being.

Guests visiting Post Ranch during this time must be traveling for essential purposes as permitted by Monterey County’s recently issued “Stay-Home” order or agree to enroll in our 6 Pillars of Healthy Living™. There is no additional cost to participate and the level of participation is based on each guest’s schedule.
