Massage is the perfect way to release the stresses of home and tension from a fast paced life. Feel Rejuvenated! Acclimate to Pura Vida by starting your Costa Rican Vacation with massage! The Relaxation Spot is located directly in front of the beach and next to Intercultura Language School. During your session, you will have a beautiful ocean view, hear the crashing waves and feel the ocean breeze, yet be protected in the event of rain. Massage at The Relaxation Spot is the perfect way to enjoy a rainy or sunny beach day. Looking for a unique experience with your partner? The Relaxation Spot offers Couple's Massage Lesson Workshops and retreats. Private and group workshops available. Workshops include lessons in scalp, back and foot massage and can be further customized to individual couple's needs in private classes. It is recommended to also schedule professional massage with Cheryl prior to your lesson to truly cater the lesson to each partner's needs. Great for anniversaries, honeymoons, romantic vacations, reconnecting, friends or just fun! Allow Cheryl's soothing touch to ease the tension of travel, to relieve tight shoulders often causing headaches (headache relief is a specialty of Cheryl's), melt away tension in your low back and hips from prolonged sitting. Cheryl's sessions are customized to each individual based on their unique needs and may include: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai, Myofascial Release, Stretching, Triggerpoint Therapy, Cranio Sacral, Reflexology, Reiki and more. Cheryl uses intuitive touch to receive feedback from your body on depth of pressure, and to be most effective believes pressure shouldn't surpass a 'hurts so good' feeling. Please feel comfortable communicating your needs and comfort to Cheryl as your session is truly All about YOU!
