Benefits of massage

After an ayahuasca experience, there is a lot to process. Massage offers an excellent opportunity to reflect in a tranquil, relaxing and non-verbal environment. Massage therapy not only reduces stress but increases positive feelings and helps people tap into the intelligence of their body and become more self-aware. Because of this, regular massage allows to you interpret your body’s stress and act before that stress manifests asphysical pain or becomes problematic.  Massage therapy loosens muscles and stimulates blood flow, releases feel good endorphins and manually drains the lymphatic system, the primary waste management system.

Our Massage Therapist

Our massage therapist, Fernando, is a local Costa Rican who has been massaging for over 20 years. He has a very gentle presence and a keen intuition when it comes to his massage practice. He speaks little English, but knows exactly how to find all the right spots without being told where to go just by the body's response to the pressure of his hands. Many of our guests have exclaimed that they received the best massage of their lives from Fernando and we are happy to have him as part of the team.
