Best massage ever
Oct 2021
I'm an experienced massage recipient (10 years consistently) and I'll tell you - you literally could not pay someone to do what Juli does - nobody else is capable. I melted on the table for hours as she worked through all of my knots and tough spots. She is such an amazing listener, her hands hearing what my aching body was shouting for. She follows the channels of sensation through to the end. The trigger point technique is incredible, holding sensitive areas and allowing me to release and relax before moving on. Juli really holds space and gives you the time needed. Then she'll send you home with some advice/techniques to practice for yourself. So knowledgable and so kind. I'll keep coming back for more!

Amazing massage

Juli is here in Santa Cruz California and we had the pleasure of have body work with her and boy one of the Best massage therapist both my husband and i have had. Juli takes the time to hear how your body feels and what you would like worked on.
I had just gone back to work and my body felt like a train ran it over. Once I got off her table with a heat pad for comfort I felt like a rubber band by the next day I was back to normal and able to workout and go back to work with a body ready to do the job.
We are lucky she is here for a few months and had few Amazing massages before she heads back to her beautiful home of Costa Rica 🇨🇷.
Now my husband and I are talking about a trip to Costa Rica and will forsure be booking are trip close to where we can meet up with Juli for body work and catch up on her beautiful family. Juli's talent and pure love of what she does and knowledge is a treasure. Absolutely Lovely 😍

Priceless - I have waited decades for this!

I just got my first massage from Juli… it was absolutely priceless. I mean that. She did sensitive and intuitive work on the physical level and then, because I was interested, worked with me through cascading emotional release. Juli is the kind of therapist that I have always dreamt of finding, who is prepared for the deepest, most painful life experiences to be processed by the person on the table. She didn’t push me, nor did she shy away. Instead, Juli greeted me with a willingness for anything to happen during our session… and I literally cried for an hour on the table. And while I have had other massage therapists who are willing to do deep work together, I have never had a therapist with the SKILL to match that willingness - until now. Juli is an incredible “listener.” My body is elated to have finally found someone who can move with me through - and beyond - very old wounds. THANK YOU Juli, you rock my world!

LIFE CHANGING! I’ve had so many massages and this was by far the best. Juli is extremely talented and she’s also just a kind soul. The outdoor location was covid safe and very beautiful. My partner and I came back two days later because it was that good!

Juli gave me the best massages of my life- my partner and I went back to her a second time during our vacation because we were so blown away by her skill. She is very experienced, kind, and straightforward- she told me exactly what was causing my aches and pains (my bad habits really) and I so appreciated her advice. I cannot recommend Juli highly enough- don’t hesitate to book. Cannot wait to see Juli again in the future.

Julieta's relaxing and restoring massage effect lasted a few days. I felt especially well the morning after when I woke up. Thank you so much for helping me to feel better!!

Amazing Healer
Mar 2021 • Couples
Juli! Where do I start? I am truly grateful that my path aligned with hers. My partner & I spent a month in Santa Teresa & MalPais and had the amazing opportunity to each experience two 90 min massages with Juli. I’ve had hundreds of massages over the years and Juli by far was one of my best. Her intuitive sense, energy, technique and healing knowledge is incredible. She loves what she does and it is absolutely apparent in her approach & techniques. My only regret is we didn’t find her sooner in our stay! She is reason enough to return to Costa Rica!

A healer of people and the planet
Mar 2021
If you are in need of a relaxing massage, deep body work or healing from a previous injury Julieta is the person to see. I've had hundreds of massages and worked with some talented healers over the years but Jule has a gift beyond that which words can describe. I went to see her after a surfing injury that almost sent me home. After two sessions I was able to get back in the water with 90% reduction in pain. I will be returning to Costa Rica soon and my first stop will be Julieta's massage table.

I am a massage therapist and I was very impressed with my massage at Pura Vida. I absolutely loved my massage with Julieta. It was therapeutic and relaxing at the same time. Her location is right on the beach and she is a sole practitioner. I felt great after and wanted to go back for more but I was leaving Santa Teresa. If I find myself in Santa Teresa again, I will definitely be booking another session with Julieta!
