Karen is a Gem up in the cloud forest…
WOW. I have had massages in many different countries around the world. I visited Karen’s simple, relaxing space a few times when I was in Monteverde. What I received was not only a massage that relieved the pain in my shoulders and back, but a gift of what I would call educated touch combined with an incredibly focused attention to what was going on in my body. Karen’s knowledge of anatomy and physiology, along with her intuition and depth of care and understanding, make her a gifted healer. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Flowing & therapeutic massage techniques open and balance your body, ease muscular tension and promote balance, fluidity and relaxation.

Karen is an incredibly skilled and intuitive practitioner…
My 2 hours spent with Karen was the best massage of my life! As a fellow certified Massage Therapist, I can be very picky when it comes to leaving my body in the care of someone else. Karen is an incredibly skilled and intuitive practitioner, and her many techniques are very effective in balancing and restoring energy in the body. I had an amazing experience, profoundly relaxing and also coming home into myself. I look forward to visiting Karen again when I return to Monteverde.

After a few days of hiking and connecting with nature, it was so nice to be treated to some time to connect with my body.

Have you ever felt the pull to study Reiki? If so, you have landed on fertile ground! Add a little depth to your Costa Rica adventure by exploring this day-long retreat option, available right here in Monteverde. Private and small group Reiki training, certification courses and multiple-day Reiki retreats are available every month at Revive Healing Arts.
CranioSacral therapy releases the deeply held tension patterns in our bodies, which are created from daily and long-term stress. Distinct from a massage, CranioSacral work uses light touch and energy-based techniques to encourage the unwinding of tissue restrictions from head to toe. Your body's natural equilibrium and energetic flow will be harmonized, returning you to a state of wellness and balance. Look no further for clarity and calm.
*$55 for 50 minutes of deep restoration
Note: Professional CranioSacral therapy instruction is available for qualified visiting manual and yoga therapists. Learn more here.

Her delicate touch and deep concern for healing made the experience divine.
Karen was absolutely amazing. Her skill and knowledge of the human body and soul made me feel connected to myself and empowered to understand my body and work in unison with it. I am a competitive collegiate runner, so I have received many massages before, but never in such a connected way. My body and mind were in need of these delightful 2 hours. She was definitely a highlight of my trip! I SO recommend her!
