About Daraknot Health


"The Celtic Dara Knot has its roots in the symbolism of Internal Fortitude, Power, Wisdom, and Strength. The knot, which resembles both a tree and the root system, has no end and represents the eternal cycle of life.

I have looked to the Dara Knot and its meaning to inspire me

in creating these programs."– Dr. Howard Gluss

Dr. Gluss, what is your background as a Clinical Psychologist, and how did it inspire you to create the Santa Fe Wellness Experience?

  • In my career as a licensed clinical psychologist I’ve worked with people in my private practice for addiction recovery, obesity, anxiety, as clinical director in rehab centers, as well as a radio and TV talk show host interviewing people who are struggling, so I’ve had the privilege to work with a lot of different people in a lot of different situations. 

  • I found myself going beyond psychotherapy with people for an hour a week in my office, and actually stepping out of that box to more deeply help people transform their lives.

  • So as I realized how much of an impact I could have with patients outside of the office I founded Daraknot Health to help people create Personal and Professional Wellness through individualized concierge programs.

  • The Wellness Program I am most excited about is our latest: the New Santa Fe Wellness Experience.
